You’ve heard us say it before — nuts are one of nature’s best healthy snacks! But, did you know that there are some nuts that can even help you promote healthy, flawless skin? It’s true, and incorporating some of these nuts below — roasted & unsalted — will work wonders for your complexion, among other things
- Hazelnuts are jam packed with vitamin E, which works wonders to prevent aging. A handful of delicious hazelnuts — about 20 — contains a ton of nutrients to fight premature cell and tissue degradation to keep your skin looking flawless for years to come. As a bonus, hazelnuts can also help produce healthy red and white blood cells to boost your circulatory system.
- Cashews are full of magnesium, which promotes healthy proteins and tons of energy. More energy means less dark circles! Plus, cashews contain iron which is known for boosting skin, hair and nails. But that’s not all — the phosphorous in these delicious nuts is great for keeping bones strong and teeth beautiful.
- Peanuts are a great source of vitamin E, just like hazelnuts, and are known for their ability to foster beautiful, healthy skin and hair. Peanuts are also great for building muscle, and they contain potassium which helps keep your metabolism in check. However, be careful before you chow down on a handful of these popular nuts, as peanut allergies are common and can also be very dangerous to you or those around you.
