Ten Foods For A Beautiful You !

Written By Hajra Khatoon, Health Story

Its not clear whether many of us live to eat or eat to live. But one thing that is absolutely clear is that food is the source of all our energy. It is the fuel for the body. So, what’s more surprising is that how we tend to overlook the good food - food that can actually help us in keeping ourselves just as pretty and healthy as always.

Rockying looks into food that not only helps in keeping the mind and the body healthy, but keeps you glowing and pretty!

  1. MILK

    We have heard our moms shouting and screaming and maybe even bribing us to drink that glass of milk. Here’s why mommy was right. Packed with Vitamin D and calcium, your healthy smile and strong bones have all being wanting milk for a long time. So, if you need to save yourself from brittle bones and broken tooth and keep the shining smile just as shiny; go drink a glass of milk right now!

  2. DARK CHOCOLATE

    From something “really boring” to something absolutely interesting - dark chocolate. Dark chocolate has been scientifically proven to increase endorphin levels which further leads to feeling of happiness. And happiness make your skin glow!

  3. CABBAGE

    One cup of chopped cabbage has just 22 calories. And it is loaded with nutrients one of which helps in producing cancer fighting enzymes thus reducing your risk of cancer. Just sprinkle some over your sandwiches and burgers for the satisfying yet healthy crunch.

  4. CURD

    Probably a staple in an Indian household; curd is probably packed with more calcium than milk itself. A million and one ways to enjoy your cup of yogurt which not only help you in building strong bones but also keeps the skin hydrated. A must for summers!

  5. TOMATOES

    Something to keep you young and to keep the wrinkles at bay. Tomatoes contain lycopene that help in reducing cell damage and redness of skin. In order for the anti wrinkle properties to work, make sure your tomatoes come with something fat. Or mix some extra-virgin olive oil in your tomato preparations to ease in lycopene absorption.

  6. WALNUTS

    Not only are they a healthy snack option, they help in giving you strong nails. The vitamin B (Biotin) in walnuts is a good beauty enhancer that also helps in reducing signs of aging.

  7. FISH

    One of the richest source of Omega 3 fatty acids, seafood has been highly acclaimed among health experts. The omega 3 is good for complexion, for reducing inflammations, keeping dryness at bay and for improving circulation. Good circulation is necessary for healthy, glowing skin.

  8. VITAMIN C

    Yes, technically not a “food” but considering that it is the main ingredient in many beauty creams, we had to look into what makes it so special. Vitamin C helps in keeping the skin smooth and taut. Just make sure you are eating veggies, berries, oranges, limes, guavas to keep the vitamin C content in check. Citrus fruits in general do just the trick.

  9. GREEN TEA

    Probably the healthiest tea around; with practically no calories (don’t add sugar!) not only does green tea help keep the weight in check, it a good body cleanser and is a boost in washing away the toxins.

  10. WATER

    No healthy food list is complete without water being mentioned. The one thing that will sustain you throughout and besides being the best cleanser, is the way to keep yourself hydrated and your mind and body alert. Make sure you drink at least 2 litres of water a day to keep everything working properly. Water is the fuel and the grease to your engines!

Make these foods an integral part of your life and see it 'glow' literally. Also let us know your secrets of  a healthy-glowing skin in the box below.
