Are you looking for a healthy snack that also feeds your skin? Our favorite healthy work snacks are Almonds, and munching on them will help give you great skin. The naturally sweet nut is a good source of omega-3s and vitamin E. Both keeping your skin cells plump and healthy. Almonds and Almond oils are commonly used natural oils in skin care and we are happy to report they are sustainable (the oil comes from the nuts; therefore the tree is not damaged to obtain it). Cooking tip: We love them raw but you can toast them for a different flavor.

We read an article from Dr. Zoe Draelos on multicultural skin and wanted to share with our readers. “Melanin is produced in response to sun exposure, transforming harmful UV radiation into heat. This explains the uncomfortable skin warmth when dark skin is exposed to the sun, which is not the case with poorly melanized skin (light skin)…which is why light complected persons engage in tanning. Tanning is a response to skin injury and not a health benefit.”
