Great Skin from Thanksgiving Dinner?

We’re updating this post for Thanksgiving 2015. The Huffington Post article is still very relevant, but we’re also adding some extra foods like broccoli, brussel sprouts, and spinach.

Brussel Sprouts
According to this Yahoo Beauty article, Kimberly Snyder, a nutritionist, says that you should “embrace those little green heads; they’re full of anti-oxidants and boast anti-inflammatory properties.”

Broccoli and Spinach
Snyder also stated that broccoli is full of fat-soluble vitamin E, which is an anti-oxidant that can protect your skin from UV damage by fighting free radicals. Both veggies are also packed with vitamin K, which will help prevent dark eye circles.
