Tip: How To Get That Bridal Glow
You want to be glowing and beautiful on your wedding day—but all the planning and fun may have you stressed, tired, and worn down. And when you’re tired, your skin looks tired too!
You may be surprised to discover that a pre-wedding facial isn’t the only way to give you happily-ever-after skin. In fact, a gorgeous face on the day of your wedding comes weeks in advance—in the form of the foods you eat!
The best way to obtain a healthier, clearer complexion? A diet high in antioxidants!
Eat foods rich in antioxidants.
You’ve probably heard of antioxidants for their benefits with health conditions like heart disease, cancer, and dementia. But did you know that antioxidants also give you healthy, glowing skin and can actually slow the aging process? A lot of skincare and cosmetics topical products include antioxidants—but feeding them to your system through your diet has longer-term benefits.
Get more Vitamin C.
Vitamin C and beta-carotene are antioxidants that will quickly boost the look and feel of your skin. Increase your vitamin C intake by eating at least one citrus fruit per day, like an orange, clementine, tangerine, or grapefruit (P.S. grapefruit can also help you beat bloat before the big day). To boost beta-carotene, opt for a daily serving of two leafy greens or orange-yellow vegetables.
Don’t be afraid of Vitamin E.
Vitamin E often gets a bad rep because people think of it is as “fat”—but it’s the good kind of fat! You need these healthy fats and oils in your system in order to keep your organs and cells functioning. Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant that repairs damaged skin, thickens hair, balances your hormones (which means less breakouts), and improves muscle strength (which makes you look more toned).
Don’t you love vitamin E now? One easy way to get vitamin E is by cooking with olive oil as opposed to vegetable or canola oil. Foods high in vitamin E also include: nuts, seeds, avocados, broccoli, and even mango and butternut squash!
By simply eating fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables everyday, your skin will glow from the inside out! And don’t forget to get enough sleep and drink water!
