Here are 3 simple and super yummy recipes that can help combat dry skin. I created these delicious ideas as a Gluten and Sugar-free option so feel free to enjoy the Avocado and Vegetable recipe or the Egg Salad recipe alone or on your favorite lettuce blend…the Egg Salad is also incredible on Gluten Free Bread. Bon appetite!
1. Avocado and vegetable mixture
The Avocado is naturally gifted with plenty of nutrition and body friendly fatty acids. What does this mean for dry skin? The fatty acids or fats in avocado help to rejuvenate your dry and scaly skin into a more moisture balanced skin, but this cannot be achieved without the help from the rest of the vitamins, which are also packed with-in the avocado. The other ingredients – potato, tomato, celery/parsley – are also incorporated with an enormous amount of vitamins, minerals and especially antioxidants. Antioxidants can help to remove all the external factors negatively affecting our skin as well as internal body factors. This further helps prevent the wrinkles that may develop and supplies plenty of water to the skin directly. All these ingredients act as an internal mask to our skin and help it to be moisturized and well nourished.
