Do You Eat To Be Beautiful?
What if instead of applying makeup you could simply take the time to eat to be beautiful? Well – you can! And this is not necessarily referring to counting calories. What this is referring to is eating healthy – in a way that will promote the health of our skin, hair, nails, and teeth. We really can improve our physical appearance by eating the right foods.
As you may have guessed, water is a main component of a beauty diet. This is because our skin is mostly water, so keeping it hydrated is very important. Green tea is another healthy choice for our skin. Green tea contains polyphenols which are anti-oxidants that are helpful in protecting against aging and even against cancer. Research into these benefits continues.
To keep your hair looking great you need protein. Excellent sources of protein for hair are fish and beans. The reason these sources are good is because fish offers omega-3s, which will enhance the shine of your hair and beans have iron and add fiber. When it comes to beautiful nails eating yogurt will help keep your nails strong and healthy. This is because yogurt contains calcium and protein. Spinach can also be helpful as it contains essential B vitamins.
Keeping your teeth beautiful and healthy is not as hard as you may think. We’ve all heard that an apple a day can help keep the doctor away – well it just might keep the dentist away too! Apples help increase saliva secretion which helps protect your teeth against cavities and tooth decay. In addition, apples help to cleanse your teeth. You probably know that calcium is needed for healthy teeth and in order to absorb calcium we need vitamin D – cereal is a good source of Vitamin D.
The point is, eating a healthy diet that ensures you are getting all the nutrients you need, along with plenty of water, will help keep your skin, hair, teeth and nails strong and healthy and looking their best. From there it’s easy to enhance your natural beauty with touches of makeup to bring out your best features. Don’t you owe it to yourself to eat to be beautiful?
