Cinnamon a glowing complexion
Cinnamon has more antioxidant value than half a cup of blueberries.
For an easy antioxidant boost, sprinkle half a teaspoon of cinnamon on your coffee grounds before brewing.
Hot peppers to fight wrinkles
Hot peppers like chili, paprika, cayenne, and jalapeno defend your skin. Vitamins A and C in peppers help combat free radicals, preventing the breakdown of collagen to maintain skin’s integrity. The colourful peppers also contain capsaicin, which acts like a sunscreen to shield skin from damage caused by UV rays.
You must ingest peppers to enjoy their regenerative powers, though, as the capsaicin that works wonders for skin internally will burn if applied topically.
Red clover to ease eczema
Medicinal herbalists have long used red clover to help soothe the red, scaly, and maddeningly itchy patches of skin that plague eczema sufferers. Red clover helps eliminate toxins in the bloodstream that appear to trigger inflammation.
Red clover can be ingested as a tea or applied topically.
