SEXY SIX BEAUTY FOODS!

How do we really define beauty?

Beauty as they say, is in the eye of the beholder. Whatever is your definition of beauty for the moment, we will sure look at it from our own lens.

I look at beauty as having to wake up each day with strength and a glowing skin + a glowing attitude!

Over the years, I’ve realized that my physical health plays a big role in contributing to how I feel, how I make decisions for the day or as to how my emotional (and even spiritual) state’s thermometer reads on  a particular moment.

Transforming my lifestyle to eating fruits and vegetables, and taking natural supplements, have changed my overall wellness in the midst of hormonal imbalances and emotional roller coaster rides.

Most say that I do have glowing skin! At my beautiful age of 41, it feels great to be enjoying better health. I do love GREEN TEA, berries and nuts.

Discover these sexy 6 beauty foods that can help regain your youthful glow!!!

SEXY SIX BEAUTY FOODS!

It’s time to shed those winter layers and show everyone the radiant, beautiful you. Everywhere you turn, there’s another lotion, potion, or cream promising a youthful glow. But real beauty comes from what you feed your body, not what you put “on” it. So we’ve come up with our “Sexy Six” Beauty Foods: the “must-have” foods to give your body a beauty boost.
1. Kale
Kale is one of the best “superfoods” that the planet has to offer. And when it comes to enhancing your skin, kale is truly “super”. This is because it is loaded with many of the vitamins and minerals that are essential for healthy skin. Kale contains potent antioxidants like vitamins A and C to help combat the stress of sun exposure and other toxins that can leave skin wrinkled and sallow. Kale is also rich in iron and B6, which can keep hair looking full and shiny. Just 1 cup of kale has 180% of vitamin A and 200% of vitamin C. All this in just 36 calories!
2. Wild Salmon
In addition to their heart health benefits, the omega-3 fatty acids found in oily fish like salmon are important for keeping skin smooth and healthy. While the research is still early, one recent study published in The Journal of the American College of Nutrition found older people who consumed more fish over their life had fewer wrinkles than those who ate more meat.Salmon and other fish rich in omega-3s are easy to fit into a “beautiful” diet.

3. Tea
Tea not only hydrates your skin, it also contains compounds known as polyphenols. Polyphenols have antioxidant properties and, according to some studies, may help prevent sun-related skin cancers and improve immune functioning. Topical polyphenols may also help increase collagen production. Green tea is especially rich in a compound known as EGCG which may keep skin looking youthful by reactivating dying skin cells. Potential beauty benefits aside, unsweetened tea is always a good hydration choice.

4. Berries
Vitamin C, plentiful in strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, is vital for the production and formation of collagen, skin’s support structure. A strong support layer helps smooth what’s on top and prevent wrinkles. Vitamin C also helps fight against oxidative damage from sun, pollution, and stress.

Berries are delicious on their own, fresh or frozen. Or you can try them in desserts or smoothies.

5. Yogurt
A beautiful smile can result from good genetics, a good dentist, and good hygene of of course. But to keep your smile looking it’s best, calcium and vitamin D, found in yogurt and other dairy products, are essential. Calcium and vitamin D work together to keep our bones strong. Teeth are embedded in the jaw bone, so if you don’t have healthy bone density, your teeth will feel the effects. Aim for 3 servings of fat-free or low fat yogurt or other dairy foods that are rich in both vitamin D and calcium.

6. Walnuts
Like salmon, walnuts also contain omega-3 fats that strengthen skin cell membranes, locking in moisture and nutrients. Studies indicate that these healthy fats may also reduce skin inflammation and play a role in protecting the skin against harmful UV rays.

Walnuts are perfect as a topping for cereal, yogurt, and salads.
