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 Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- 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
