Eating for Beauty: The Importance of Phytonutrients for Healthy Skin

We all know we should be eating more vegetables, the vitamins and minerals found in plants are super-important for the strength and vigor of the body.  But it’s not just our insides that benefit from phytonutrients, plant nutrition is also important for the skin; pigments and antioxidants play an especially significant role in protecting us from the sun.  For maximum benefit make sure to slightly steam your veggies.  And use butter.  The heat and oils will help release natural sugars reducing bitterness and they’ll liberate the fatty phytonutrients making it easier for you to absorb their anti-aging goodness.
