The first thing that sets you apart in a crowd is glowing skin! Contrary to what most people think, glowing skin does not come from cosmetic concoctions. Your skin is a reflection of what you eat. Here are 7 things you must include in your diet if you are ready to glow from within!
Strawberries are juicy sources of vitamin C. They are also packed full with antioxidants that help the body fortify the immune system and fight aging. The presence of collagen in the strawberries help fight dead skin cells. Strawberries can be eaten raw after a thorough washing.
Watermelons contain more than 90% water! Fresh slices of watermelon help cleanse the system, leaving the body refreshed after a busy day at work.
Tomatoes (especially organically grown balls) are rich in lycophene, a necessary ingredient essential for eradicating wrinkles and dead skin cells. Lycophene is also a natural sun screen. Drinking half a glass of tomato juice every week has been confirmed to prevent all forms of cancer.
They are rich in Vitamin C. Cucumbers help protect the skin from the harsh ultra violet rays of the sun. Cucumbers can be eaten raw or added to salads.
Salmons are good sources of Omega3, 6, 9 and 12. In addition to making the eyes and joint work effectively, salmon fish oil is known to be a natural moisturizer for the skin.
A glass of milk a day keeps the doctor away! Milk is a major provider of calcium in the body but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t work wonders for the skin. It also contains several anti aging properties. Make sure the milk contains little or no fat.
Apples are rich in Vitamin C and also help the skin repair dead skin cells caused by excessive use of harmful cosmetics. Eat one today!
