Best vegetables for glowing skin
We all know that eating vegetables keeps our bodies ticking over pretty nicely on the inside, but did you know that they also affect how we look on the outside?
With parties, gatherings and a whole host of other festively themed social events coming up left, right and centre, the majority of us are looking to do whatever we can to look as good as possible.
Researchers from the University of St Andrews found that eating just two more portions of fruit and vegetables a day made a noticeable difference to people’s complexions after just six weeks.
Dr Glenys Jones, a researcher from Cambridge University told the BBC: "With the vast majority of the population not consuming the recommended five-a-day of fruits and vegetables, this could be another way of encouraging people through our own innate vanity to increase fruit and vegetable intake.
"After all fruits and vegetables contain a wide range of nutrients that are good for not just for our complexion, but for our overall health."
So, which vegetables are the best for our appearance?

Sea vegetables such as seaweed are great for making your skin really bright and youthful.
The science behind this is that they include alginic acid - a little substance that helps absorb and remove toxins from the body.
Because of this, your skin will be completely blemish-free and incredibly radiant.

Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
