Soften Your Skin with This Savory Treat

Yesterday I was watching an health show so they were discussing on soft skin and what measure we should take to soft your skin

What do your skin and that last slice of leftover turkey in the fridge have in common? They both might be a little dry right about now.
So do them both a favor. Make yourself a little portobello mushroom gravy -- and eat it. Why? Because mushrooms provide a host of nutrients that give skin a radiant, youthful glow, writes Allison Tannis in Feed Your Skin, Starve Your Wrinkles. And we already know what gravy does for turkey leftovers.

Skin-Loving Fungi
Actually, just about any type of mushroom -- portobello, crimini, white button, shiitake, oyster -- will help buoy a youthful complexion, writes Tannis. All because of the following vitamins and minerals:
  • Selenium -- Selenium shields newly formed skin cells from damage brought on by chemicals, inflammation, or too much time in the sun. Exactly what you want, because newbie skin cells are what make your skin look soft and young. Turkey is another great source of selenium, so try pouring EatingWell's Portobello Gravy on top

  • B vitamins -- Mushrooms are loaded with B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5, and B6 -- all of which support the metabolic process behind the growth of brand new skin cells. Did you know? B vitamins keep you energized, too.

  • Copper -- This is another nifty mineral for your skin -- and it's especially abundant in crimini mushrooms. Copper helps your body manufacture antioxidants -- including those that mop up cellular by-products in skin mitochondria.
