Cabbage can help get rid of crow’s feet, which are a sign that you may have high cortisol levels. High cortisol can cause the skin to break down faster and wrinkles to appear.
The adrenal gland is responsible for making cortisol. By incorporating anti-inflammatory and vitamin A-, C- and E-rich food like cabbage into your diet, you can help to lower cortisol levels, diminish crow’s feet, and prevent lines from forming in the first place.
Try to choose purple cabbage because it has 6 to 8 times more vitamin C than green.
This Raw Purple Cabbage Slaw is the perfect way to introduce more cabbage to your diet. It has a light, beautifying dressing, and is made with fresh, raw with purple cabbage that’s practically bursting with skin beautifying vitamin C and other nutrients, stays crispy, and is appetizing and delicious. I usually eat most of it right after – and sometimes during! — making it, though I do encourage you to let it marinate for a few hours before eating . . . if you can wait!
