Who doesn’t love a good cup of coffee to kick start your morning?! But have you ever considered what your morning brew is doing to your skin. We looked into it for you!
While we enjoy coffee for the short-lived energy boosts it gives us, we fail to realize the toll it takes on our skin. Coffee, like alcohol dehydrates your skin and can cause you to look older. So while you're sipping down your morning brew (or if you're like me afternoon and evening brew) your liver is working overtime. This causes toxins to build up in the body, toxins that hinder healthy-skin function. Think; premature aging, inflammation and collagen loss.We found some healthy energy-boosting alternatives for you!
Almonds rock! Almonds contain Magnesium and vitamin B which help convert food into energy.
Popcorn is popping! Whole-grain air-popped popcorn contains fiber which helps prevent the blood-sugar crashes you receive after eating refined or simple carbohydrates. Popcorn also provides volume and keeps you fuller than chips will, which can curb craving and aid in weight loss #bonus!
Go Bananas for Bananas! Bananas are loaded with antioxidants, vitamin c and good carbs to help keep you going.
H2O! According to a study conducted at the University of Florida nearly 75% of Americans are dehydrated, which can cause fatigue. Remember the rule of eight! Thats 8oz of water 8 times a day.
