5 MORE Foods for Healthier Skin and Hair | NUTRITION
Whole foods contain lots of nutrients, enzymes, and phytochemicals that work synergistically to keep your skin and hair healthy. In our previous post, we gave you a list of 10 foods to help keep your skin and hair healthier. In this article, we’ll include 5 more foods to that list. Here they are:
We all know the benefits of eating whole avocados. They contain good amounts of one of the building blocks of healthy skin – omega-9 fatty acids. They also contain a lot of vitamins A, D and E. These nutrients are highly concentrated in the oil that’s why it’s getting all the attention nowadays. When added to your diet regularly, the high concentration of nutrients found in avocado oil help to even out your skin tone over time.
Tomatoes can protect you from sun damage that’s why they are also called skincare superheroes. This is thanks to their high antioxidant content. In fact, according to a 2008 study presented at The Royal Society of Medicine in London, women who added tomato paste with olive oil to their dishes on a 12-week period showed that their skin’s ability to protect itself against UV damage significantly improved.
No matter how you enjoy them – boiled, poached, or sunny side up, eggs can help your hair stay healthy, seriously. It’s because eggs contain sulfur, which is an essential nutrient that helps with a lot of things in your body. It helps with liver function (your body’s detox organ), vitamin B absorption, and production of keratin and collagen, among many other things. Collagen and keratin, as you should know, help create and maintain glowing skin, strong nails, and shiny locks hair.
Walnuts help your body retain moisture, giving your mane a healthy-looking shine. It’s because walnuts contain omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. They are termed “essential” because your body can’t produce them, so you have to obtain them from your diet. These fatty acids are for growth and repair, helping to boost hair follicles to make your hair stronger and fuller.
Garlic is truly one of nature’s best medicines. It helps maintain clear skin and prevent breakouts because of its antibacterial compounds. To make the most of this natural remedy, chop or crush garlic and leave it on the cutting or chopping board for a few minutes before cooking.
