Eating well can make us feel and look good, but what foods should you be eating to get the best complexion, hair, nails etc?
Strawberries, blueberries and blackberries – all have great antioxidants and vitamin C which regulates collagen and helps form barrier lipids which prevent moisture loss (and hence dry skin)
Lentils - great for the hair. Rich in iron and zinc they’ll give you rich, thick and shiny hair
Almonds and other nuts – good fats and rich in vitamin E which helps protect and repair skin
Green veg – always good to get in your diet as they have so many nutritional benefits, but they have iron and vitamin E so again are great for skin and hair
Colourful peppers and tomatoes – lots of vitamin C here as well
Fish – vitamins A and D as well as our essential Omega 3 fatty acids. Vit A can help regulate oil production, preventing spots and stretch marks. Vit D to replenish hydration and boost elasticity and omega 3 is amazing for skin, nails and hair!
Eggs and dairy – not forgetting that a smile sets a face, calcium is needed for healthy, strong teeth
