Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for all of life’s blessings. Also, it’s the holiday of overindulgence. Usually, your Thanksgiving dinner consists of too much wine, turkey, and every side dish. Fortunately, it has some benefits. There are a number of ways your Thanksgiving dinner can give you great skin!
Cranberries make the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving meal. Cranberries contain a lot of antioxidants, which combat cell-damaging free radicals. Finally, they help skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis. Don’t feel guilty about the second serving of cranberries!
Green beans have a lot of health benefits. First, they are rich in vitamins A, C, K, and B6, and folic acid. Vitamin A contains antioxidants that maintain healthy clear skin. Vitamin C helps repair and regenerate tissues. Also, B6 can be used to treat acne. Green beans also contain folic acid which aids in preventing macular degeneration and reducing signs of vitiligo, a skin disease where white patches develop on the skin.
Pumpkin is an excellent source of vitamin C, a vital vitamin in combating wrinkles. Also, pumpkin promotes collagen production. Collagen is responsible for skin tone and elasticity. Say bye, bye, Miss American Pie and say hello to a slice of pumpkin pie!
The skincare benefits of sweet potatoes make this tasty vegetable that much sweeter, and a perfect addition to a Thanksgiving dinner that can give you great skin. Sweet potatoes contain minerals such as magnesium, which aids in relaxation. Stress causes wrinkles, so keep calm and sweet potato casserole on!
Turkey contains B-12, which will help treat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Another health benefit—85 grams of roasted dark turkey meat only contain around 147 calories. Besides, turkey meat helps you feel full for longer. While everyone else is enjoying their post-Thanksgiving dinner nap, you won’t be hungry as your cleaning up!
