Did you know eating just a few dates a day can improve your skin and hair? It’s true! Here’s how these little superfruits can give you a beauty boost:
Dates are full of antioxidants, like tannins, which have been shown to prevent cell damage, oxidation, and reduce inflammation. The subcutaneous tissues will be strengthened, which will overall soften and smoothen out your skin. Eating dates can reduce the formation of wrinkles in your skin and the fine lines we can see with age. Dates include pantothenic acid, which will improve your skin from deep within. Dates are jam-packed with Vitamin C and D, which boosts your collagen production and keeps your skin firm. They also contain antimicrobial properties that are crucial for healing scars and marks deep under the skin.
Dates contain iron which will improve blood circulation to the scalp. This will result in faster hair growth, strengthen your hair follicles, hair roots, prevent breakage, and hair loss. Tip: Soak dates in a bowl of water overnight. Use that water to wash your hair the next day. This date infused water has been shown to remove build up and residue that is stuck in your hair.
We can see why they call dates superfruits…they really work magic!
