Top 5 beauty foods to try
Healthy living is about looking and feeling your best inside and out. This is heavily influenced by how you take care of yourself and more importantly what you’re eating.
Guardian food writer Lynne Michelle claims that some foods can really make us beautiful, giving us the right mix of nutrients and vitamins to keep us looking at our best.
But what should we be eating to become body beautiful?
For youthful skin
Avocados are naturally high in fat, however most of this is healthy and monounsaturated, which is great for plump, youthful skin.
It lowers bad cholesterol and is a great source of potassium, helping the body to flush out toxins. With vitamins E and C it also offers a potent anti-ageing combination.
For a healthy heart
Broccoli is rich in folate, which can help reduce the risk of heart disease. It is high in fibre, essential in cutting bowel cancer, digestive disorder and heart disease risk.
With the added benefit of antioxidants and beta-carotene it’s a top heart health booster.
For warding off colds
Even during the summer months colds can strike, leaving the body lethargic and congested.
Onions and garlic have been shown to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which ward off colds and flu.
They have also been linked to helping prevent cancer, thinning the blood to prevent clots and boosting good cholesterol.
For good hair, nails and skin
Brazil nuts are often cited as a superfood and it’s easy to see why when you find out how packed full of vitamins and nutrients they are.
They offer a great source of selenium, which boosts skin elasticity, as well as the overall condition of your hair and nails. This nutrient can help with acne and also works to keep heart muscles in peak condition.
Brazil nuts contain a good amount of zinc, which eases dry skin problems such as psoriasis and eczema and can reduce the chances of it wrinkling.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
