Thanksgiving Food Is Actually Good For Your Skin
November 27, 2013
Before you decide you’re only going to have a tiny bite of turkey and a (as in one) green bean, we have some shocking news to share with you. It turns out that a lot of Thanksgiving foods are actually great for your skin. For instance, dark turkey meat contains twice the amount of zinc as white meat and will help produce collagen, while sweet potatoes have more than 200 percent of the recommended daily value of Vitamin A and promote new skin cell growth. And let’s not forget the cranberries, which will neutralize harmful cell-damaging free radicals. While it may not be good for your waistline to eat seconds and thirds, your skin will sure appreciate it if you enjoy a delicious plate of turkey dinner.
