We love adding to our glow-up routine. And since healthy skin starts from the inside out, we teamed with Nikki Baumel of My Sweet Belly to create a beauty-enhancing salad.
A nutrient-rich recipe that includes salmon, avocado, tomatoes, and iceberg lettuce topped with a light lemon and dill dressing is, well, more than satisfying. It’s the skin and health benefits for us. Ahead, Nikki explains why you should be putting this salad in your rotation and provides step-by-step instructions for how to make it. Glow on, do it.
The skin and health benefits:
“Salmon: filled with good oils (omega-3s) and vitamin E. Helps reduce inflammation and great for brain health and skin elasticity.
Avocados: more healthy fats. Can help keep your skin hydrated and may help protect skin from the sun’s UV rays. I like to think of avocados as an internal moisturizer.
Tomatoes: pairing good fat (from avocados and fish for example) with carotenoid-rich food (tomatoes) aids in better absorption of carotenoids. Carotenoids may help slow the progression of wrinkles and sun damage.
Iceberg lettuce: I like to think of salad, mostly lettuce, as crunchy water. It’s as important to eat your water as it is to drink it! (Especially if you live in hot or dry climates.) Fresh lettuce helps hydrate you from the inside out.”
