Foods For Your Skin And Hair

Updated on February 2, 2016

Gorgeous skin and smooth shiny hair is something that we all desire for. But due to the growing pollution, it becomes difficult to maintain them. Although we have a little control over pollutants but what we eat is completely in our hands.

The diet that you intake directly reflects on your skin. Always maintain a habit of eating healthy food items that are good for your body.

YOGURT

The one food that can be easily placed in the first position, among the top ten healthy foods, will definitely be yogurt. With the goodness of calcium and vitamins, it is surely one of the healthiest dairy product after milk.

It's good for teeth, nails, bones, skin as well as hair.

You can mix it with fruits and cereals to make that healthy yet yummy breakfast.

SPINACH

Although it has nothing much to offer when it comes to taste, spinach has a great content of minerals and nutrients. A small bowl of spinach soup should be consumed every once in a week. It will flush out all the toxins from your body and keep your system clean.

Spinach is rich in iron and dietary fibers. Iron plays a vital role in the production of hemoglobin and red blood cells. Thus, spinach is a must have for those suffering from anemia.

OATS

There can be nothing better than starting your day with a bowl full of oats. Not just that they make you full, but are also tasty and delicious.

You can also add your favorite fruits and nuts to them, which will only result into more goodness.

Oats are also an apt food for the ones working on losing their weight. They also help lower the level of cholesterol.

Which one bothers you the most?

PINEAPPLE

Remember not the pineapple cake, but the actual fruit has collagen forming properties which helps in the formation of skin cells/structure. Sufficient production of collagen in the body results in a youthful appearance and a fresh face.

Cut a pineapple into thin round slices. Store it in your refrigerator and have a slice whenever you feel like munching onto a snack.

TOMATOES

Not all of us like tomatoes but did you know? The high content of antioxidants found in tomatoes can prevent you from sun damage by protecting your skin and hair from the harmful UV rays.

EGGS

No matter how you prefer to cook them, eggs are always beneficial for hair. They help the formation of collagen and keratin which are both equally essential for strong nails, silky hair and smooth skin.

COCONUT

We all are aware that coconut oil nourishes the hair like none other. Apart from that, you may even try having coconut water for an even better outcome. Drinking coconut water keeps your hair and skin hydrated, which is all that is required for a healthy skin and bouncy hair.
