How to make your skin glowing trough Thanksgiving.
Anti-Aging Thanksgiving Meals.

It’s a time for indulgence and we say “Go ahead, indulge!” We’re going to tell you how to do it without compromising your complexion.

 

5 Anti-Aging Foods In Your Thanksgiving Meal

1.) Turkey

Besides being a wonderful source of protein that gives your body the amino acid building blocks it needs for strength and repair, turkey also contains an array of energizing B vitamins, especially B3, also known as niacin. Niacin converts to niacinamide in the body and this vitamin can help to rev up your skin’s cellular function as well as help cells retain moisture. In this way, niacin can contribute to a reduction in fine lines and an increase in skin’s elasticity and springiness. So carve away, this centerpiece to the Thanksgiving meal is also a healthful choice for your skin and overall health. In fact, Kate Ryan Skincare features niacinamide in several of our products because we’re so impressed by its anti-aging power. Find products containing niacinamide here.

2.) Green Beans

Perhaps not everyone’s favorite dish of the day as a child, we can certainly admit as adults that green beans are one of the best beauty boosters in your Thanksgiving meal. This legume is an excellent source of fiber, which is a handy pairing in a heavy meal. A bit of fiber is important for digestive health and this alone can keep skin clearer and healthier, but it also plays a role in helping you to remove water-soluble toxins from the body. This is critical for keeping skin radiant and glowing. Green beans are also rich in carotenoids like lutein, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, and lycopene, all of which act as antioxidants to protect our skin from the aging effects of oxidative stress.

3.) Cranberries

Thanksgiving might be the only time of year that a bowl of cranberries makes its way onto the table as an essential element of a meal. These tart little ruby red jewels pack a serious punch of anti-inflammatory phytonutrients called anthocyanins and flavonoids. Controlling inflammation in the body and the skin is one of the most important strategies in preventing premature signs of aging.

Cranberries are also an excellent source of collagen-protective vitamin C. Keep in mind though, cooking the cranberries to a palatable point does significantly diminish their level of vitamin C since it’s so sensitive to heat. Nonetheless, even trace amounts of vitamin C in combination with the anthocyanins that give cranberries their beautiful red color amount to powerful protection of collagen and elastin in our skin to keep it firmer and more resilient. We suggest a homemade cranberry sauce using less sugar since the canned jellies you’ll find at the market won’t carry the same beauty benefits.

4.) Pumpkin Pie

Yes, you read that correctly. Even your pie has its saving graces. Your typical pumpkin pie has plenty of sugar in it, but it’s not all bad. You can’t make a pumpkin pie without lots of cinnamon and studies have indicated that cinnamon may have the ability to control blood sugar spikes and regulate insulin thereby keeping inflammation under control as well. This might just keep all that sugar from causing a higher degree of inflammation-induced wrinkles or breakouts. More than just adding the perfect flavor to your pumpkin pie, pie spices like cinnamon provide major antioxidant protection. And let’s not forget that pumpkin itself is a nice source of beta-carotene which fights free radicals and can be converted by the body to anti-aging vitamin A.

5.) Sweet Potato

Speaking of vitamin A, sweet potatoes are one of the plant world’s best sources of provitamin A in the form of beta-carotene. The abundance of this carotenoid and other antioxidants along with the soluble fiber of sweet potatoes allows for their natural sugars to be absorbed at a rate that minimizes spikes in blood sugar. Between your sweet potatoes and your pumpkin pie, you’re getting a hefty dose of provitamin A that can keep your skin plump and glowing when these foods are prepared without excessive amounts of sugar.

Look for credentials

To begin with, look for credentials of the dermatologist. After all, report card does matter a lot.

Choose the dermatologist certified American Board of Dermatology. Also you can look for credential by simply browsing through the website of the dermatologist.

Make sure dermatologists is not pitching for sales

If you feel that dermatologist pitches for sale then look for some other doctor. It is a doctor’s clinic, not a shop. Make sure that selected dermatologist or staff members do not push you to buy products, remedies and treatments which are not related to your treatment.

Generous sampling policy matters

A dermatologist clinic full of mini tubes of several products signifies that the doctor wants patients to get the best treatment for a skin problem. It also indicates that the dermatologist is conscious of budget and prescribed medicines. If chosen dermatologist allows you to try a product before buying it then it is just a great sign. Instead of being shy, ask for samples as many times even doctors have to trash them up.
