Top Foods for Beauty

Foods have amazing potential when it comes to detoxing the skin, cells and blood so that you remain healthy not only on the inside but the outside as well.

Glowing skin, bright smile, shiny hair, sparkling eyes are all part of the package that one can achieve by eating the right foods.

But it is not simply beauty on the outside but from within. When we feed our body good and healthy food, the result is not only better overall health but health and beauty that is visible to others as well.

Being the largest organ of the body and one that others see first, skin demands the right nourishment for its best health.

To maintain your best skin care ever, choose from foods that have been proved to show skin rejuvenating effects. Typically these foods will be those that hydrate the skin naturally, provide lots of vitamins and minerals and are rich sources of health boosting antioxidants.

And while the list can be quite extensive here is a look at some of my favorite foods for beauty.

Goji Berries

Goji berries offer anti-aging properties by helping with  skin damage caused by sunburn.

Barley, Brazil Nuts and Cremini Mushrooms

All these foods contain selenium which is an important mineral needed for healthy growth of hair and nails.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar acts as a natural tooth whitener, gives extra body and shine to hair and can help restore the pH balance of skin.

Almonds, Beets, Cashews and Swiss Chard

These healthy foods can help clear the skin and reduce blemishes.

Grapes, Strawberries and Pineapple

All these fruits can be used as topical skin exfoliants as they contain AHAs. Alpha hydroxyl acids help dissolve dead skin cells that can clog pores and cause pimples, blackheads and whiteheads.
