5 Surprising Beauty Foods

by Vivian Fleitstra on January 26, 2014

All fresh fruits and vegetables contain magical powers when it comes to shiny hair, clear skin and strong nails. However, these ones I’ve chosen below are perhaps not as well-known for their powerful beauty benefits. Try and include these foods into your diet if you want to look your best without the need for Botox or other unnatural remedies.

  1. Red Peppers. All red and orange-colored foods contain beta carotene, a powerful antioxidant. Red peppers are particularly beautifying due to the minerals A, C and K. Vitamins A and C can help prevent cell damage that leads to premature ageing, and they can also reduce inflammation, which can cause a puffy looking face. Pepper also has Vitamin K, which is an excellent property for protecting our cells from damage.
  2. Spinach. All leafy greens are actually very powerful in terms of being a beauty food, because of the chlorophyll which they contain. There are also loads of other phytochemicals and fiber in spinach that help to build blood that is super clean and which will show through in your skin.
  3. Turmeric. This yellow colored Indian spice has a load of powerful antioxidant qualities. Turmeric assists in protecting our cells from free radical damage and also contributes towards cleaning up metabolic waste in our systems. It is also great as a liver flush, to get rid of any poisons and chemicals which are stored there.
  4. Pumpkin Seeds. Wow, these really are powerful. What don’t pumpkin seeds have in them?! The humble pumpkin seed contains high levels of zinc, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and vitamins B, C and E. Pumpkin seeds are also a great source of amino acids and omega-3 fatty acids, all essential for healthy cell maintenance. Make a handful of pumpkin seeds a regular part of your diet and you will definitely notice a change in your appearance.
  5. Parsley. Next time your plate is garnished with parsley, don’t push it aside. This is a pretty powerful herb when it comes to anti-ageing, as well as purifying and cleansing the body. It contains vitamins A and C as well as anti-oxidizing flavonoids that protect our cells from free radical damage. Parsley also helps to purify the blood, kill bacteria, aid digestion and cleanse toxins from the liver.

The best thing is, all these foods are easy to incorporate into your diet. Add turmeric to juice, and combine the other foods with some other fixings to make a great, beautifying salad. Who said that beauty was hard to keep?
