Its official, once Halloween has passed, we have entered the slew of holiday season madness. Now Thanksgiving is upon us and we await the once-a-year turkey dinner that will grace us with leftovers for days. However, amidst this time is also where most of us over indulge and lose focus on how to take care of ourselves. These impending corrections and improvements we make for ourselves will most likely be saved for our New Year’s Resolutions, but you have the power to change them today!
The most common effects we tend to feel post Thanksgiving binge are exhaustion and lethargy. Not to mention what you put inside your body will surely reflect its appearance on the outside. Our skin is of course the most apparent of what anyone will see, being it’s the largest organ of our bodies, and it shows good skin health based on the efforts we make to keep it clean and clear.
Here are a few suggestions of what to keep most in mind to eat this Thanksgiving Holiday and that your skin will be grateful for!
- Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day! This will help facilitate a better digestive tract when you stuff your gullet.
- Grab some of that cranberry sauce! Cranberries are not only a savory sweet tooth alternative to its fatty counterparts, but they are also full of antioxidants! They are rich in Vitamin C and contribute to more radiant skin. Also, the fresher the cranberries, the better!
- Slice up that pumpkin pie! We know it’s difficult, but consuming pumpkin helps to breakdown toxins and improves digestion. So eat up that dessert full of pumpkin pie!
- The most essential part of the meal and one of the most essential parts of your daily diet is to eat your protein-filled turkey! Skin thrives off protein and by overloading on turkey this Thanksgiving, will help it achieve a natural glow.
