As Christmas is coming up, we cannot wait to eat holiday cookies, treats, and hot cocoa. Did you know eating too much sweets can lead to dry skin? Sugar is known to break down collagen and elastin, which leads to our skin to start looking wrinkly, dull, and dry quickly. Eating excessive amount of sugar also can lead to breakouts, which we definitely do not want going into the new year. This is why we should watch and limit the amount of sugar we eat during the holidays.
Obviously we can't say "no" to Christmas cookies, hot cocoa, and sweet eggnog to everyone who offers, but it is important to learn how control yourself with these tempting dessert. If you have serious flare-ups when eating sugar or certain food, make sure to have your dependable moisturizer with you. We know the kids love baking delicious cookies and gingerbread houses with loads on candy decorations, but there are other ways to have Christmas fun desserts. Here are different types of treats to try during the holidays!
Shortbreads: We love a simple yet super tasty cookie. Shortbreads are super simple to make, and you can even make them keto-friendly to be extra healthy.
Oatmeal or Vegan cookies: The kids love decorating their cookies with frosting and overloading them with sprinkles or chocolate. If you don't want to get rid of cookies in this Christmas diet, try making healthier cookies. This can also be a fun activity to do with your kids as well.
Apple Fritters: We love a warm dessert and top it off with vanilla ice cream. Something about cinnamon and warm apple brings us such a fall/winter mood. Try Apple Fritters with vanilla ice cream instead of a chocolate pie or cheesecake.
Hope everyone has a happy holidays! Keep your skin feeling healthy and hydrated.
