Beauty Boosters

BEST foods for Gorgeous skin:
Almonds -They're stuffed with vitamin E, a potent sun blocker. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant that helps to protect skin cells from UV light and other environmental factors that generate cell-damaging free radicals.Other health benefits include good source of fats, rich in calcium, etc.

Green Tea - Very important ingredient to include.When it's hot, the bionic brew releases catechins, a type of antioxidant with proven anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. (The tea's antioxidants start to degrade as it cools, so drink it while it's hot.) Studies have found that drinking two to six cups a day not only helps prevent skin cancer but may reverse the effects of sun damage by neutralizing the changes that appear in sun-exposed skin.

Spinach - Rich in folic acid,these veggies may help repair and maintain DNA—basically bolstering cells' ability to renew themselves. That reduces the likelihood of cancer-cell growth.The water in greens penetrates cell membranes—which makes for plumper and less wrinkled skin. It should be combined with a vitamin c source like lemon or amla so as to get full absorption of iron. It is also rich in fibre.

Tomatoes -Lycopene, the phytochemical that makes tomatoes red, helps eliminate skin-aging free radicals caused by ultraviolet rays, Your body gains the most sun-shielding nutrients when the vegetable is heated. So consuming it in a cooked form benefits more. It is also helpful in reducing bad cholesterol(LDL) and increasing good cholesterol (HDL). Rich in insoluble fibre which adds bulk to the stools thus preventing constipation.

Dark Chocolate -For the chocolate lovers- Flavonols, the antioxidants in dark chocolate, reduce roughness in the skin and protect against sun damage. Proven to be good for the heart patients as well if consumed in moderate amounts. more
