What bell peppers can do for your skin
Bell peppers are one of the vegetables that is found in a variety of dishes and recipes. The crisp and unique taste of bell peppers make them a popular vegetable and many people enjoy eating this vegetable on occasion. Though you may only incorporate bell peppers in to your diet from time to time; you may want to consider adding more to your normal routine as they can actually be beneficial to your skins health and overall condition.
Bell peppers can be good for your skin due to the high amount of Vitamin C the peppers naturally possess. This infusion of additional Vitamin C is optimal when you are seeking younger looking skin. As skin ages, the collagen in the cells tends to become not as strong, and thus sagging and less taunt skin becomes visible. In addition, extra Vitamin C is also helpful in fending off free radicals which can compromise the integrity of skin cells and impart damage to the cells themselves and even be a contributing factor in the development of cancer over time.
Red, green and even yellow bell peppers can all be added to salads, soups, sauces, meats and other recipes to add not only flavor, but additional boosts of Vitamin C. By adding such nutrient rich foods to your daily diet, or as often as possible, you will be giving yourself the natural benefit of better health through dietary changes that can be easily and readily made without causing you to make sweeping changes that may be hard to stick to.
