Each season, nature gives us the foods we need at that time. Today I share with you the best seasonal foods for a healthy and radiant skin.
In autumn, the energy of plants begins to concentrate inward to face the winter. In our body this translates into an increase in melatonin and a decrease in serotonin, which often causes a lack of energy and fatigue. Seasonal foods, such as rhodiola, can help us to acclimatize better.
Infusions that boost defenses and eliminate toxins
Boosting the immune system is a priority in autumn. Echinacea or propolis infusions help strengthen defenses. In addition, there are plants that help detoxify the liver from summer excesses, such as boldo, milk thistle or dandelion.
In this video I show you how to make an infusion to strengthen the immune system.
Seasonal foods for healthy and radiant skin
- Opt for vitamin-rich fruits such as pomegranates, grapes, tangerines, apples and pears.
- Nuts are always a good ally for the skin. In autumn you can enjoy the delicious chestnuts.
- Mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, pumpkins and sweet potatoes are the main vegetables of the season.
- Vitamin C, besides being a basic nutrient to strengthen the immune system and prevent fatigue, is responsible for the creation of collagen. Include orange, grapefruit and lemon in your recipes.
Moisturizers rich in antioxidants
SUNSHINE is the lightweight moisturizer, formulated with:
- Wheat germ oil: it is the richest natural source of Vitamin E, highly antioxidant and preventive of tissue aging and wrinkles. It brings vitality to the skin and reinforces the hydrolipidic film present on the skin surface.
- Macadamia nut oil: It contains two powerful antioxidants: palmitoleic acid (omega-7) and squalene. Omega-7 deeply nourishes the skin and helps to restore its elasticity. Squalene is a fat that is naturally produced by our cells, but as we age its production slows down. It acts by creating an incredible protective barrier that not only offers protection from environmental aggressors, but also locks in moisture to ensure skin stays hydrated.
- Camellia oil: also known as tea seed oil, shares many potent antioxidant compounds with green tea, as well as nourishing fats, vitamins and minerals.
