3 Ways to Get Glowing Skin
Keeping your skin healthy and radiant is as easy as incorporating Vitamin E, biotin, and lots of hydration into your diet.
So Here’s the Lowdown:
An antioxidant that helps protect cells against damage caused by free radicals. Found in dark, leafy greens, nuts and nut butters, seeds, and plant oils, olive oil.
Essential for growth and also assists with metabolism. Found in eggs, pork, salmon, nutritional yeast, and whole grains, such as whole-wheat bread.
Avocados are an excellent and delicious source of both vitamin E and biotin. One cup of avocado contains about 3.1 milligrams of vitamin E and 2-6 micrograms of biotin.
These also contain both vitamin E and biotin. A quarter cup of raw almonds contains about 9.2 milligrams of vitamin E and 14.7 micrograms of biotin.
A “glowing skin” breakfast
A couple of eggs cooked in olive oil with a side of avocado, and of course, some other vegetables thrown in for good measure. Enjoy a handful of almonds as a snack to boost your vitamin E and biotin intake. Try our favorite vitamin E and biotin boosting breakfast below.
