You Are What You Eat: Organic Salad Ingredients for Your Skin

It is amazing how many traditional salad ingredients are making their way into skin care products. Why use a harsh skincare cream or treatment when there are naturally farmed organic remedies that offer non-invasive healing properties and general well-being? Vegetables offer a rich natural source of nutrients that are easily absorbed into the skin.

Ingredients such as olives and olive oil have been used for centuries as a means to obtain more youthful skin. Olives are rich in vitamin E, which protects the skin against free radial damage. When taken internally or used externally, olive oil is also anti-inflammatory thus protecting the skin and body both inside and out.

Tomatoes and carrots are rich in antioxidants and help fight against cell damage and other environmental stresses that can take a toll on your skin and body. Tomatoes, packed full of vitamins A and C as well as lycopene, help to maintain moisture, reduce inflammation and protect against and heal skin damaged by the sun.

Avocados, which contain fatty acids and are rich in vitamins B, C, E and K, also aid in heeling skin damaged from sun exposure. Products containing avocado are absorbed evenly and smoothly into skin, helping to sooth red or blotchy irritated skin.

Lettuce and cucumbers are both extremely effective ingredients in organic eye treatments. They help to reduce eye puffiness and dark circles without harsh invasive chemicals. Additionally, chlorophyll, a holistic ingredient known for creating healthy looking skin, and found in rich dark green lettuce helps to diminish signs of aging.

The daily consumption of vegetables is essential way to provide your body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs, both topically and internally. Dark and richly colored vegetables are full of antioxidants that keep free radicals at bay and promote balance, beauty in body and skin.
