Eat Two Sweet Potatoes a Week
You’ll get more beta carotene, an antioxidant that promotes collagen production, out of one sweet potato than you will out of any other fruit or vegetable. Research suggests that two servings a week will motivate your skin to block UV rays on its own and reverse sun damage.
Make Your Own Pumpkin Facial
Pumpkin contains enzymes to exfoliate, zinc to heal inflammation, and vitamin C to ward off free radicals. One pumpkin facial a week will leave your skin supple and bright. Try this recipe:
- 4 tsp. canned pumpkin
- 1 tsp. milk
- 1 tsp. honey
- 1 tsp. brown sugar
Dampen your skin and apply the mixture for up to ten minutes. Remove with cool water, pat dry, and moisturize.
