We often hear confident is what makes a person looks beautiful – yes, we all know it’s true. We see our beauty and body at their best when we are in physical, mental, and emotional balance. When we are physically healthy and glow, that’s what bring up the confidence in you. For too long, we’ve been stuck in thinking that the only way we can get clearer skin or stronger hair is to shell out for a lineup of beauty products. While products are a fabulous and feel-good addition to your beauty routine, they work within the limitations of your health. However, the deepest, longest-lasting, and most profound changes to your beauty and body are made through your diet and lifestyle.
We truly are what we eat. The foods that best support you in looking and feeling your best are packed with beauty nutrients. Whether you are in the journey to build a lifestyle of beauty inside and out, the following beauty nutrients’ guides will take you to a shortcut to radiant skin that instantly brighten up and healthy, in the “natural way” that we always believe in. Let’s nourish your beauty from the inside!
1. Drink warm lemon water in the morning
Cut 2 slides of lemon and drop them into a glass. Top with lukewarm water (which is the temperature level that best support morning elimination), and sip as you start your day for detoxification, internal cleansing, optimal digestion, alkalinity, and a collagen and immunity boost. For extra antioxidant, anti-inflammatory value, add fresh or ground ginger and/or turmeric.
2. Eat at least one or more serving of greens
Target to consume a varied spectrum of foods and colors every day, but always be certain that you must include a plenty of greens! Their detoxifying, healing, skin-clearing properties are critical for optimal beauty.
3. Seasonal fruits and vegetables
Whenever you have the opportunity, go for fresh, seasonal foods, which offer the most concentrated, targeted, beauty nutrition that you need. For example (Image from the left to right) – Raspberries strengthen hair and nails; Blueberries support youthful skin and healthy connective issue; Strawberries boost collagen production; Blackberries support skin elasticity.
4. Protein & healthy fat at each meal
Blood sugar stability is one of the secrets to gorgeous skin, energy, reaching and maintaining an ideal weight and hormone balance, as well as slowing the aging process. At each meal, remember to include beautifying proteins and healthy fats. For example, eggs, salmon, tofu, nuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds, avocado,, virgin coconut oil, olive oil.
5. Probiotics & fermented foods
To achieve healthiest and most beautiful glow of you, make digestive support as your priority. Probiotic supplements are great everyday insurance for better digestion, but adding small daily servings of fermented foods will take things to the next level with even more gut-strenthening benefits. Examples of fermented food are yogurt, kimchi, tempeh, miso, kombucha.
6. Chew you food – Completely & mindfully
While you chew each bite, don’t miss the chance to further support strong digestion and assimilation of your beauty foods and their powerful nutrients. Chewing may seem like an insignificant contribution to your beauty, but when you done it mindfully, you can make a big overall impact on your digestive processes.
7. Regular meal intervals
Spacing out your meals supports optimal blood sugar balance and digestion, and ensures that you don’t face a sudden energy slump during the day. It’s worth the extra attention to plan ahead for regularly spaced meals and healthy snacks when you need them.
8. Frequent hydration
Your skin is 70% of water, and your body requires this essential fluid to perform some of its most critical beauty functions, such as digestion, nutrient absorption, metabolism, and water removal. Plus, when you’re low on water, your skin loses its radiant glow.
If you take supplements – such as multivitamin, fish oil, or vitamin D, for extra beauty nutrients or other nutritional support, take them at a regular time so you won’t forget them in your busy day.
10. Fresh herbs and spices
One of the easiest and most delicious ways to add instant antioxidant, anti-aging and beautifying power to your current meals is to incorporate ample herbs and spices. Get familiar with your spice rack; experiment with new seasonings in your recipes; plant an herb garden and harvest from it daily in your backyard. The phytochemicals in these flavorful foods deliver potent beauty benefits even in small doses. For instance, cilantro, rosemary, sage, thyme, turmeric, parsley.
The beauty doesn’t end here. Add these daily habits into your routine for a glowing complexion, shiny hair, stronger nails, increased energy, and a slimmer waistline.
