Eat yourself beautiful
Lots of creams, ointments and tablets claim to make you beautiful overnight, but how many of them really work?
Instead of spending your money on these treatments, try giving your skin a true natural glow with these organic foods.
Many celebrities swear by these essential foods to keep a healthy complexion, strong nails and shiny hair.
Finding the right antioxidants can have a truly positive impact on your skin, dimming the appearance of wrinkles and giving it a natural, healthy glow.
It is thought that certain antioxidants promote collagen in the skin - the substance that keeps skin plump and young.
Uncooked, brightly coloured fresh fruit and vegetables are jam packed full of antioxidants, as well as vitamins A, C and E.
Essential fatty acids
Nutritional supplements that contain essential fatty acids are great for the skin.
Look out for supplements that contain omega 3 and omega 6, as they are the most beneficial fatty acids for our skin.
Omega 3 is really oily, so it completely sorts out dry and irritated skin. It can also be found in lots of different types of fish.
It also helps protect against the sun's harmful UV rays. As sun damage is the number one cause of premature skin aging, having a bit more protection it is extremely beneficial.
No, you're not seeing things; chocolate really has been proven to do wonders for your skin!
Every little piece of dark chocolate is rich in high levels of cocoa flavanols, which is meant to soften and hydrate our skin.
Like everything, dark chocolate has to be done in moderation. Too much can lead to health problems.
However, if a little bit of dark chocolate every day will make our skin glow, who are we to say no?
