In the quest to look good, people usually focus almost exclusively on external strategies. Of course, technology is becoming more sophisticated, and with the increasing number of anti-aging products and treatments, the options are growing. However, anti-aging starts at the cellular level, not at the surface of the skin as many skin care companies love you believe. The glow, tone and vitality of your skin is closely tied to what you eat because your skin cells are constantly renewing and regenerating each month.
Why is cabbage good for your skin?

This is good for your skin because it removes toxins that can cause dullness and blemishes if they accumulate in the bloodstream.
2. Both purple and green kale are rich in the “beauty minerals” silicon and sulfur. Sulfur is especially present in each cell because it is responsible for absorbing nutrients and removing waste from the cells. This is called osmosis. For the skin to be radiant, it needs to have good permeability.
3. Cabbage is rich in vitamins K and C. The dark color of this vegetable is due to the high concentration of anthocyanin polyphenols, which have anti-inflammatory properties, and to the fact that it contains 6 to 8 times more vitamin C than oranges. Skin thrives with this powerful vegetable. 4. Cabbage soup is a great way to cleanse the digestive tract while providing a wealth of antioxidants by shrinking digestion-related ulcers.
