Beauty boost your brunch—5 simple additions
If there’s one thing we love when the weather (and mood!) gets a little better, it’s brunch! Xlash Cosmetics lists what you can add to give yourself a real beauty boost on the inside that will show on the outside. Luster, strong nails and better beauty sleep? Yes thank you!
Blueberries really are super berries. They don’t just contain heaps of antioxidants but also vitamins C, B, and minerals that help the body’s functions. Vitamin C has quickly become a must-have in the bathroom cabinet due to its luster inducing and smoothing properties, so make sure you get it from the inside as well!
The super-ingredient collagen is best absorbed with vitamin C. Therefore, mixing 1-3 teaspoons of collagen into the juice is perfect. It can also mask any flavors. Our skin is made up of approximately 75% collagen which is broken down by aging and external stresses. Therefore, using it in skincare and supplements has become very popular.
P.S if you don’t want to take collagen powder, our Hair Growth Formula contains both collagen, biotin and lots of other vitamins and minerals for hair, skin and nails.
Don’t be skeptical of spinach! It’s a good and easy way to get your greens — just mix it into the smoothie. You basically can’t taste it along with banana, berries, and your other favorite ingredients. Spinach contains a lot of good vitamins and minerals, but the ones you usually talk about are Vitamin A, Vitamin K, and folic acid. Vitamin A strengthens the immune system, vitamin K strengthens the skeleton and folic acid is needed to produce protein.
The ultimate sandwich must be avocado, salmon, and egg. Not only incredibly tasty but also contains lots of healthy and necessary fats and proteins that take care of your skin, hair, and nails. Salmon contains omega-3 which is said to give luster and moisturize from the inside out, avocados contain vitamin E which is a real skin hero, and eggs contain antioxidants that contribute to young and healthy skin!
FOR THE YOGURT
Yogurt (both dairy and vegan!) contains lots of good bacteria for the stomach. Add seeds for a simple beauty boost! Pumpkin seeds are good for a lot but help, among other things, beauty sleep. It’s the tryptophan that’s converted into the sleep hormone melatonin.
