You are what you eat! While we all love a good dessert or a delicious treat (which we highly recommend!), it’s critical to your skin care that you get enough of the right things in your diet too. There’s a lot of different diets out there taking care of skin, but we’re going to try to keep it simple with one or two things per month that you can add to your diet because we want you to have the best skin possible! Today we’re talking about the benefits of eating red bell peppers.
Skincare is Healthcare
Red bell peppers are a great addition to a healthy diet. They contain powerful antioxidants that can help to counteract environmental toxins and cell degradation. A single bell pepper contains more than 100% of your daily vitamin C needs. It also contains a good amount of dietary fiber and vitamin B6. So eating red bell peppers contribute to cellular metabolism, energy production and red blood cell development.
Essential for Good Skin
Red bell peppers also protect skin from free radicals and environmental damage. Red bell peppers are rich in carotenoids that can help prevent wrinkles and increase blood circulation to your skin, helping it look more youthful. Carotenoids also increase blood circulation and aid in the fight against acne and skin blemishes. Carotenoids are to your diet what our products are to your skincare regiment – they’re essential. Red bell pepper is a good source of Vitamin E, which works to keep your skin moist, soft, and wrinkle-free.
While our organic products are excellent for giving you buildable color, a DIY sunless tan and glowing skin that keeps you from showing signs of age, it is critical that you pair them with foods that give your body the nutrients needed to protect and restore your skin.
