There are many things that you can do to improve and enhance your appearance and the way you look. The first step should be to internal nourishment. You are what you eat. Your skin and complexion are a reflection of your internal health. A new study validates this fact and suggests that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is the best way to look good, have attractive skin and also stay slim.
Fruits and vegetables are great sources of fiber, antioxidants and a plethora of vitamins and minerals. A lot of studies have shown that fiber induces a feeling of fullness, keeps you satisfied, prevents unwanted hunger pangs and thus, helps you maintain your weight. According to this new study, conducted by Australian researchers, a daily intake of fruits and veggies could be your secret to looking good and beautiful.
Food and vegetables contain several natural pigments that are absorbed by the skin and make it look radiant. Researchers hope that this study will motivate people to eat more fruits and vegetables as part of their daily diets.
According to leading beauty expert Suparna Trikha, “Your skin needs a boost from within to look fresh and glowing. You need to eat the right balance of foods to feed your skin the vital nutrients it needs to help it stay soft, radiant and blemish-free.”
Beta carotene found in carrots, lutein found in papaya and spinach, lycopene in tomatoes and Vitamin C found in oranges and beetroots are all potent antioxidants that impart a healthy glow. You can even apply some fruits and vegetables like potatoes, avocados and strawberries to rejuvenate your skin.
