Vitamin C has been proven to improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, reduce inflammation, and stop wrinkles.
2 Coconut Oil
Coconut is a great Lauric acid, which helps fight bacteria and viruses in the body that can cause sensitive skin and even acne. Spread this on toast or blend it in with a smoothie for great skin and a cleansed body!
3 Mangoes (Maybe you also want to adopt a mango tree )
Another acne curber, this fruit rich with Vitamin A will rejuvenate your skin and prevent pores from getting clogged. In addition, Mangoes are filled with antioxidants.
Lemons not only clean out any impurities in the body, but also help strengthen, clean and whiten teeth. Pour the juice in water, or put salt or baking soda on it and rub it on your teeth. If you’re feeling extra wild that day, eat it on its own.
With a lot of lycopene supply, tomatoes inhibit enzymes from breaking the natural collagen in your skin. Lycopene also contains carotenoids, which have been proven to protect skin against sunburn and sun damage. But please, don’t still skip the sunscreen.
A good source of vitamins B, C, and E, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids, spinach also contains lutein. All of these will give you a stronger, shinier and longer healthy hair!
7 Dark chocolate
We’re not kidding. Go ahead and bring out that chocolate because contrary to belief, it does not cause acne and actually helps skin stay hydrated and reduces puffiness. Just make sure that it is at least 60 percent cacao.
8 Chile Peppers
Capsaicin, the compound that gives chile peppers their heat, also helps reduce levels of ghrelin, which cause hunger. It also raises GLP-1, an appetite-suppressing hormone.
Another antioxidant-filled fruit, oranges also contain Vitamin B1 and boost the immunity system. Oranges are also great for helping with collagen production and skin elasticity.
For anyone trying to grow strong nails and hair, biotin is essential. Instead of going out and buying supplements, opt for the delicious walnut option which is rich in biotin. Throw them on a pasta, salad, or dessert. They also make a great snack on their own!
