6 Korean foods that can enhance skin beauty
It is inevitable that the skin plays an important role in conveying beauty to others, especially if you’re desiring to appear young. Even an individual with beautiful facial features would seem unattractive and old if she has terrible skin with wrinkles. In addition to skin treatment, food consumption can significantly influence the skin. Here is a list of 6 Korean foods that can help enhance the beauty of your skin, which can subsequently make you appear younger than your actual age!
1) Jokbal (족발), Pig’s trotters
Jokbal (족발) refers to pig’s trotters (pig’s feet) that is seasoned in soy sauce and spices then steamed. Jokbal is rich in proteins, such as collagen and elastin. Collagen provides strength to the skin, and elastin increases skin elasticity and softness.
