Every bride-to-be wants to have luminous, glowing skin on the most important day of her life! If you’re planning a Hawaii destination wedding, it’s important to get your skin in tip-top shape well ahead of the wedding date. Exposure to sun, eating not-so-healthy foods, not getting enough rest or sleep – there are many things that can take their toll on your skin. We have included some information below about “super foods” that will help ensure you have a gorgeous, glowing complexion when the big day arrives.
Carrots contain a large amount of vitamin A, great for preventing the overproduction of cells in the outer layer of skin and clearing up breakouts.
Green tea, when hot, contains antioxidants known as catechins, proven to help in the prevention of skin cancer. Antioxidants are essential for healthy, youthful-looking skin.
Almonds are packed with vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects delicate skin cells from UV lights – and did you know that almonds aren’t actually a nut, but a seed?
Tomatoes, when cooked down release lycopene which works to eliminate free radicals caused by UV rays which age the skin.
Dark chocolate – and who doesn’t love chocolate – contain antioxidants that also protect against sun damage while reducing roughness of the skin.
Prickly pear is great when applied to the skin topically to shrink pores and keep your skin hydrated because it contains tocopherol (a form of vitamin E) and even more important, essential fatty acids. Omega-3s and Omega 6’s are the essentially fatty acids that hydrate the collagen below the skin’s surface, keeping it healthy, hydrated, and preventing huge pores. This relatively new “super food” can now be found in some facial products such as Abgur Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil Cream.
