Skin helps keep your body at just the right temperature and allows you to have the sense of touch.
As your skin is a large part of your overall physical appearance, it is important that your skin can heal quickly if it is damaged. Both vitamins and minerals have a role in the appearance and structure of your skin and are also essential for its ability to repair.
Many nutrients in vegetables maintain healthy skin including vitamin A, vitamin C and some B-group vitamins (biotin, niacin and riboflavin).
Did you know you can soften up some hardy greens like kale by massaging their leaves? A few minutes later you’ll have darker, softer, more palatable leaves without losing any of the crispiness.
