Thanksgiving Beauty Trinity: Three Foods for Your Tummy and Your Skin

In the name of the Beneficent Father, of good harvest, and of all blessings… In the name of health, beauty, and wellbeing… In the name of pumpkins, green beans, and pecans…

Thanksgiving Day is that special day of the year when families typically gather at the table to praise and thank the Beneficent Father who dwells in the Heavens for all blessings and good harvests. Or as others simply say, Thanksgiving Day is a day when everyone, whether on a diet or not, fill in their plates with all sorts of food, and still go for a second or third round.

Yes, we have the license to overeat, indulge and be grateful. By ‘indulging’ we mean that you should not limit it to nourishment through the food you ingest, get a boost by feeding your skin through topical application.

Here’s a list of the must-have foods on your dining table that have not only health but beauty benefits too. And we list some ways on how can you get a boost of their good beauty benefits through some highly-recommended products.

1. Pumpkin for a dose of Vitamin B3

Pumpkins are rich in vitamin B3, which helps minimize the appearance of dark spots on your skin and aids in skin cells hydration. When it comes to inner health benefits, LiveScience Journal reported that Vitamin B3, or Niacin, "has a role in producing certain hormones in the adrenal glands and helps remove harmful chemicals from the liver,” quoting Dr. Sherry Ross, women’s health expert at Providence Saint John’s Health Centre in Santa Monica. Vitamin B3 also helps heal intimacy problems, as mentioned in a study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Now to boost the good effects of vitamin B3 on your skin and wellbeing, give our Organic Gold Face Crème a try. The crème is made with Gemstone Essence from raw gold, pyrite and other select crystals, a unique blend that heals skin from hyperpigmentation and sun damage. It also carries a powerful, confidence boosting and masculine energy (healing for both men and women) because it affects the solar plexus—the third chakra.

2. Green beans for Vitamin A boost

Well-known for being rich with antioxidants, green beans are a good source of Vitamin A or Retinoid. According to HowStuffWorks, vitamin A improves the immune system and keeps skin and mucous membrane cells healthy, for them to stay moist and resistant to cell damage. This “moistness inhibits bacteria and viruses from 'putting down stakes' and starting infectious diseases," per the article.

When applied topically, Organic Ruby Face Crème, this vitamin-A-enriched crème soothes skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. This product also has natural antiseptic essential oils that ward off skin infections as well as blemishes and acne. This anti-inflammatory crème heals skin conditions quickly.

3. Pecans and their much-coveted Vitamin E

Pecans contain several antioxidants, including vitamin E, which helps fight and remove the free radicals responsible for premature skin aging. Eating pecans prevents signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles as well as pigmentation.

Another good source of vitamin E would be our SIBU Moisturizing Body Cream, which contains sea buckthorn. The particular variety of sea buckthorn in this product, known as Turkistanica, not only has the highest nutrient profile of all sea buckthorn varieties, but it also has the highest Omega 7 concentrations averaging from 37% to 40%. And it is worth noting that Omega 7 from sea buckthorn contains a full spectrum Vitamin E—such as tocopherols and tocotrienols—for healing and repairing skin tissue, along with several phytonutrients that nourish the skin.

So, indulge your skin this Thanksgiving day - and all the days to come.
