Malaysian red palm oil may be a secret to flawless skin, exclaims Hollywood celebrity skin expert Scott-Vincent Borba. During a Good Morning, San Diego! interview, Borba explained that beautiful skin starts from within.
His reasons for loving Malaysian red palm oil -- "I've tried everything!" -- is simple.
Wrinkles, sags, and age spots are outward signs of internal inflammation. Triggers include environmental toxins, a diet high in refined and sugary carbohydrates, sun exposure, hormonal changes, stress, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.
The solution begins with an anti-inflammatory diet. Key anti-oxidants — such as the palm oil vitamin E tocotrienols — can be a powerful beauty arsenal.
Red palm oil's high smoke point allows it to be versatile. You can use palm oil to bake, stir-fry and even drizzle it in your salad with balsamic vinegar.
"Red palm oil actually helps with anti-aging, your skin texture and tone. You'll actually get a glow within a couple of weeks of using this product. It's awesome."
The Cooking Your Way to Gorgeous author dishes out his recipes for a healthier, beautiful you.
Rich in antioxidants such as the full range of vitamin E of tocotrienols and tocopherols, and vitamin A's beta carotene, Borba believes Malaysian red palm oil can replace olive oil in your kitchen.
What you put in your body is actually good for you outwardly, too. As the vitamin E anti-oxidant in the cooking oil called tocotrienols work to counteract inflammation processes in your body, it will lead to better cell regeneration and moisture retention.
Take it from Borba and stir-fry your meals with spoonfuls of red palm oil. In time, your natural beauty will shine from the inside out.
