Get In On The Spirulina Trend With This Easy Pesto Recipe
Turns out you can't pack away sun concerns with last season's swimsuit. Incidental sun exposure—the kind you get when leaf peeping and apple picking—accumulates year-round and can lead to redness-causing inflammation and thick, hardened skin. It's also linked to squamous cell carcinoma, the second-most-common type of skin cancer. But recent research in theJournal of Investigative Dermatologyreports that spirulina—a freshwater algae full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals—may (in addition to its immune-boosting powers) reduce skin damage caused by UVB exposure.
Pump up your fall smoothies with a scoop, or get a healthy dose of the antioxidant-rich green stuff in this pesto recipe from Candice Kumai, a chef and the author ofPretty Delicious.
