Ok, ok we're not exactly suggesting you eat ice cream sundaes for every meal, but there are skin-friendly treats that'll tempt your taste buds - and enhance your skin. Scan the foods below for the 5 healthy indulgences you'll want to add to your Instacart shopping list ASAP for a clearer complexion.
Go ahead and have a square or two of dark chocolate for dessert (the higher percent of coco content, the better!). Flavonols, found packed inside, can help prevent UV damage and jump-start blood flow for more radiant-looking skin.
Add some of these berries to your plate post-dinner to help tame excess acne-causing oil. Vitamins like A and C in the berry can neutralize sebum levels and aid in the detoxification process.
Sprinkle the spice over your favorite sweet Starbucks fix for a healthy-skin boost. Since cinnamon is anti-microbial, it can help combat bacteria on your face making room for clear skin to shine through.
Whether it's fall or not, this dessert is sure to thrill your skin all year round. The orangey dish is loaded with beta-carotene, which the body makes into vitamin A - a move that supports healthy skin growth for softer, smoother skin. Just be sure to use a low-calorie, low-fat recipe!
As long as it's the real deal (and not artificially made), the dessert version of the traditional tea can infuse your skin with antioxidants, which have been shown to reduce inflammation. Plus, the super-tea may be able to prevent sunburns.
Now that your cabinets are stocked with the top desserts for glowing skin, be sure to compliment those efforts with our Positively Clear 3-Step Acne Skincare Solution. Use it as consistently as you reach for those sweet treats (daily, amiright?) to see results in as little as two weeks!
