9 Thanksgiving Foods for Your Skin Health

9 Thanksgiving Foods for Your Skin Health

Nov '22

Here at Westchester’s best SkinCenter, we’re excited and ready for Thanksgiving. An easy way to achieve smooth skin this holiday is to be strategic with the foods you put on your plate. Here are 10 Thanksgiving foods to keep your skin healthy and your tummy happy.


Go crazy for cranberry sauce on Turkey Day this year. It turns out that these berries are packed with vitamin C which protects collagen and phytonutrients that fight inflammation.


Dig into dark leafy greens like Spinach during your feast. Vitamin A, vitamin E, magnesium, iron, and folate are just some of the nutrients that will help nourish your skin.  

Brussel Sprouts

Bring on the roasted Brussels sprouts this holiday. These vegetables are high in vitamins C and K, which in turn, will shield your skin from harmful UV rays.


Nothing says Thanksgiving like some pumpkin dishes. Whether you prefer your squash as a side or a dessert, this food is a great source of vitamins C, E, and A. It also contains beta-carotene, which triggers cellular renewal for a more radiant complexion.


 This holiday’s main dish is surprisingly healthy for your skin. Turkey is rich in Zinc and Niacin. And, if you go with the dark meat of the bird, you’ll get two times as much Zinc and Riboflavin.  


Almonds and walnuts are excellent skincare foods to put on your plate. Almonds are a good source of vitamin E, while walnuts are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Both nutrients are essential in keeping your skin clear and hydrated during the holiday season.

Olive Oil 

If you’re bringing a dish for the meal, try to incorporate olive oil in whatever food item you’re bringing. It’s an antioxidant that’s great for nourishing your skin from the inside out.  

Green Bean Casserole

Whether you’re a fan of the bean itself or the crunchy onion topping, green bean casserole is your friend this Thanksgiving. Green beans are rich in magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, and magnesium — three ingredients that help your skin look younger.

Roasted Carrots

Vitamin A, vitamin B, and potassium are three of the top nutrients that carrots offer. So, feel free to pile on the carrot dishes at the family dinner.

Speaking of Thanksgiving… Your skin will thank you for some extra TLC this holiday season. Book a facial or microdermabrasion session at SkinCenter to look more rejuvenated as you enjoy celebrating with loved ones over yummy food.
