Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has already established her role as a fashion icon in the Royal Family. Next to the Queen, of course, who’s always on top. (Have you seen her highlighter green co-ords?) But there’s one more thing you need to pay attention to when it comes to Meghan and that’s her secret to glowing skin.
Allure recently dug up a 2016 article from Delish where Meghan shared her go-to meals and food items. When it came to what she likes to eat to maintain her camera-ready skin, almonds were one of her answers. According to NDTV, almonds provide vitamin E and keeps blood vessels dilated which help hydrate the skin and prevent acne, eczema, and dark spots.
Now, we’re tempted to run out and buy a whole bag of almonds to munch on. Of course, another option is to grab beauty products made with almonds and work just as well. So if you want to achieve that royal glow, you better get to shopping.
