Shoutout Ken-Tal

This November, we are celebrating our community in a big way. Our local businesses have shown resilience, adaptability, creativity, and compassion throughout this challenging year. It is time for us to put a spotlight on each of them.

We are asking our community members to support local in November by shopping, writing reviews, following on social media, and spreading kindness to those who have been putting effort into keeping their doors open for you.

Are You In?

Here’s how you can join in on the action. Each day, we will be celebrating a different industry within our community. We simply ask that you take one action a week to make your favorite business owners do a happy dance. We are asking for everything from referrals, to testimonials, to purchasing from local shops.

Fall and especially Thanksgiving give us the opportunity to literally “FEED OUR FACES”

Here are a few of my favorite fall foods to nourish your skin:

BEETS:  Contain potassium, fiber iron,  vitamins A, B and C, as well as magnesium, which wards off free radicals that lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Magnesium also helps prevent skin allergies and eczema flare-ups, for those who experience those conditions.

BRUSSELS SPROUTS:  Also known as “baby cabbages,” this popular autumnal cruciferous vegetable is in season from now through late winter. Packed with vitamin C, Brussels sprouts help skin look firmer and smoother while lessening the appearance of sun spots and dryness. Equally yummy

CRANBERRIES:  This sweet-yet-tart fruit is a fall staple, and that’s good news for your complexion. The phytochemicals in cranberries and their juice have potent anti-inflammatory properties, helping to keep pimples and even longer-lasting cystic acne at bay.
APPLES:  Apples are in the top 20 list of foods with the most antioxidants (two-thirds of which are in the peel), helping to prevent skin cell damage. The superfruit also contains B vitamins, which aid in combating acne and other skin irritations.
POMEGRANATE:  Any way you enjoy this powerhouse fruit, your skin gets a bonus from its antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects on the skin. By aiding in the production of collagen (your skin’s support structure), it can staves off signs of aging.  Pomegranate also provides a rich source of antioxidant vitamin E to protect from free radical damage.

Last but not least is the PUMPKIN:   Its seeds are loaded with zinc, which encourages cell renewal and protects skin against infection, and it’s flesh is full of beta carotene, which along with sun protection, gives skin a beautiful glow.  It’s loaded with vitamin C, which works with the beta-carotene to boost collagen and reverse UV and free radical damage
Stay tuned for how to get the benefits of pumpkin topically as well!!! -Deb
