Thanksgiving Foods Your Skin Will Thank You For - Walnuts

Thanksgiving Foods Your Skin Will Thank You For - Walnuts

In a few short weeks it will be Thanksgiving.  As we prepare our shopping lists and get ready to spend time with family and friends, one of the things you may not be thinking about is how many traditional Thanksgiving Day feast favorites can actually improve your skin. This week, we’re talking nuts…namely walnuts!

Nourishing fats in walnuts help skin absorb moisture from the air, soothing dry winter skin.

According to Stephanie Clarke and Willow Jarosh, Registered Dietitians and co-owners of C&J Nutrition in Manhattan, “Walnuts offer up healthy Omega-3 fats that strengthen the membranes of your skin cells, locking in moisture and nutrients that keep it plump and glowing and keeping out toxins that can damage skin cells.  The nourishing fats in walnuts attract moisture from the air, soothing dry skin. These healthy fats may also reduce skin inflammation (meaning less breakouts!) and play a role in protecting the skin against harmful UV rays.”1  In addition, walnuts (namely walnut shells), as in Terranova’s Buffing Body Wash with bamboo & coffee, provide an excellent gentle exfoliant for dry, dull, winter skin.
