There’s no big secret when it comes to having beautiful hair and flawless skin, and you won’t find it at the bottom of your makeup bag. You are what you eat, so if you want flawless skin and gorgeous hair, then tuck into some of these delicious superfoods and see the difference:
Walnuts are high in Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E which are both needed for smoother skin, brighter eyes and healthy hair. You don’t need to be munching on them all day either, just eat a little every day or sprinkle some on a salad to see the benefits.
Rich, creamy and delicious, avocados are filled with monounsaturated fats, which are great for skin, hair and your nails.
There are hundreds of ways to enjoy salmon: grilled, baked, with salad or with pasta. Salmon is another great way to get your omega-3 fatty acids along with vitamin D and selenium, which helps to protect your skin from the sun. Go for wild salmon, if you can, because it has a far higher concentration of the goodness that your skin and hair needs.
Feed your skin and hair with all the vitamins that they need with sweet potatoes – a rich source of vitamins, including A, C and E, as well as having a high beta carotene content which helps brighten your eyes and protect your skin.
Not often thought of as a superfood, blueberries were actually ranked the number one food for antioxidants by the US Department of agriculture. Add a few to your cereal in the mornings or just enjoy some on their own to help slow down the aging process a bit.
Not everybody’s favorite food, but one that is well known for its amazing health benefits. Rich in minerals and vitamins, as well as those all-important omega-3 fatty acids, try spinach as an alternative to lettuce in a salad. If it was good enough for Popeye, it’s good enough for us!
Another one that’s not to everyone’s taste; oysters are a good natural source of zinc, which helps with skin cell renewal and also keeps your hair, nails and eyes looking beautiful and healthy.
Kale has been causing quite a stir recently and has even been hailed by some as one of the best foods that you can eat for health reasons. Kale is packed with vitamins and minerals, as well as omega-3 fatty acids. Try it as a part of a salad or steam it as an alternative green vegetable.
Don’t overlook the common tomato in your beautiful healthy hair and flawless skin diet. Even cooked, it’s the best source of the anti-aging antioxidant lycopene that you can eat.
Mix it with fruits for breakfast or eat it as a healthy snack, Yoghurt has loads of calcium and is great for a healthy and glowing skin, as well as beautiful hair. It’s also good for helping to clear up a range of skin problems including acne, dandruff and more.
So next time you go out to buy skin care and hair care products, take a detour to the food shop instead. Just a few changes to your diet can give you long lasting shining, beautiful hair, flawless skin and glowing complexion a lot more cheaply. And it’s better for you, as well as your purse.
