Shhh! We have a huge beauty secret to share with just you lovely skinnyskinny organics readers. Get ready, because this is going to change how you think about beauty. Just like you have a cleanser, a toner, a moisturizer, and a skin serum, what’s on your plate plays a big role in your beauty routine. Ok, maybe it’s not that shocking, but this isn’t some boring old “you are what you eat” talk.
Let’s break this down:
In the morning and at night you apply a few drops of your m/a skin serum, which will penetrate deeply to prevent signs of aging with ingredients like extra-virgin pumpkin seed oil that both increases firmness, and encourages cell turnover.
Meanwhile, you might eat a beauty food like bell peppers which are chock full of vitamin C that helps to keep skin toned and firm by assisting in the production of collagen and elastin. Wow, you’re looking good!

For a small step into eating for beauty, we’re giving you an easy to follow recipe from Jolene Hart’s Eat Pretty- a book that works as a seasonal guide to the best beauty foods, with plenty of delicious recipes like this one. Trust us, it’ll be worth putting aside the butter, crisco, and sugar for these cookies (even if it is just this once). Also note that if you don't have a food processor, a blender will work just fine.
