28 Days Of Blissful Beauty: Day 17 – Beauty Foods

 

Creams and lotions are good for your skin, but your diet is by far the most important when it comes to having a healthy skin.

Here are a few of my favourites…

*Fish

I love fish! Croaker, titus, mackerel; any type of fish. Fish is your skin’s saving grace! Loaded
with Omega-3 fatty acids it reduces inflamma- tion, redness, wrinkles and sagginess at the
cellular level.

*Beans

Contains a lot of fibre, folic acid, protein,

calcium and magnesium. These stabilise blood sugar and reduce cholesterol.

*Green Vegetables

Such as pumpkin leaves (ugwu), spinach, lettuce are loaded with beta- carotene, vitamin C,
iron and antioxidants.

*Honey

I use more of honey which is a rich alternative to refined sugar. Refined sugar is believed to
contribute to ageing.

*Oats

Quaker oats is one of my favourite breakfast meals. It’s very high in soluble fibre and
complex carbohydrates, calcium, vitamin B & E and silicon.

*Tomatoes

Are loaded with minerals, vitamins B and E and also very high in lycopene – the
phytochemical that gives the tomato its red colour. It is known to be among the most
potent anti-aging antioxidant.
