Radishes for Healthy Skin~Recipe: Summertime Radish Tartine

Radishes are a root vegetable that have been around for as long as can be remembered and they are known to be a great vegetable for healthy skin.  Radishes have a high water content, helping to keep the body hydrated and maintaining moisture in the skin.  Radishes also contain Vitamin C, which are known to help to protect the skin from environmental stressors that can lead to premature aging, dark spots and wrinkles. This is a favorite recipe that I love to make this time of year when the radishes are ripe for the picking. Enjoy!
