Salads are fantastic for your skin.
Packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants; salads are not only nourishing, but anti-inflammatory as well. I can say that I always feel and look a lot better when I have fresh salads in my daily diet. I can definitely see the difference in my skin.
To clear up your breakouts and acne, I strongly recommend that you eat fresh green salads regularly (for best results, eat a salad every single day!).
The salad recipe I’m sharing with you today has been a staple in my diet for many years. It’s a simple and easy salad to make, and what I love most about it is it’s a “skin-friendly” salad.
A lot of you email me that you are eating a super healthy diet, but still getting breakouts – I understand where you are coming from (even some health foods can cause breakouts and acne), and that’s why I put this recipe together for you.
You see, process food, junk food, fast food– all that stuff is all terrible for your skin. And, unfortunately, for some of you, even some health foods and healthy ingredients can be causing havoc on your skin. Later this week, I will post an article and video about what healthy salad ingredients you have to watch out for that might be causing your breakouts.
For now, I want to share with you a simple skin clearing green salad recipe that is great for your complexion, and you can get started making now!
