Just about everyone wants to have youthful, healthy skin; many people turn to expensive lotions, serums, and even Botox to reduce wrinkles and achieve a healthy glow. However, healthy skin starts from the inside, and nothing is as beneficial for your skin as drinking bone broth.
Bone broth is somewhat of a miracle drink, and many people are interested in it for both health reasons and the skin benefits of bone broth.
So what exactly are the skin benefits of bone broth and how can bone broth help you achieve beautiful skin?
Bone Broth Heals Scars and Wounds
We all have some type of scarring on our skin. If you have a wound on your face or a scar, you may feel self-conscious and be wondering how you can improve the appearance of these scars.
Bone broth is rich in four types of amino acids:
Of those four amino acids, arginine specifically aids in the healing of wounds and scars.
Bone Broth Improves Skin Elasticity
Skin elasticity refers to the way that the skin goes back into place after it has been stretched. As we age, our skin becomes less elastic and starts to sag. You can test the elasticity of your skin by pinching a section of it and seeing how fast it bounces back into form.
Taut skin appears more youthful.
So how precisely does bone broth benefit skin elasticity?
Bone broth is one of the few foods that contains collagen, a structural protein that gives our skin elasticity (among doing many other things for our skin, hair, nails and more).
Bone Broth Improves Fine Lines and Wrinkles
If you read the point above about bone broth improving skin elasticity, then it makes sense that one of the skin benefits of bone broth is also to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!
Skin that isn't saggy will be smoother and have fewer wrinkles.
When collagen begins to break down at around the age of 25, our skin begins to lose elasticity and as a result, will have more lines and wrinkles.
It's essential to introduce a collagen-rich food such as bone broth into your diet to help keep your skin wrinkle-free.
Bone broth also contains anti-aging minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium to help your skin stay youthful.
Bone Broth Keeps Your Skin Clear and Glowing
Acne, rashes, hives and other skin conditions can be triggered by leaky gut. Leaky gut essentially means that bacteria and other toxins leak through your intestinal wall.
Those toxins can then trigger the skin conditions listed above.
Bone broth is rich in collagen and gelatin which can repair your gut lining and reduce inflammation in your intestines.
When you no longer have toxins entering through your intestine, your skin can begin to clear up and have a nice “glow” to it.
How to Enjoy Bone Broth to Benefit Your Skin
If you want to see the benefits of bone broth for your skin, you have a couple of different options!
Bone broth can be enjoyed in a variety of different ways by ingesting it as well as using it topically (yes, you no longer need those expensive lotions)!
