Food : 4 beneficial habits for beauty
Diet plays a key role in the beauty of your skin. To display a great complexion and fight against aging skin, here are some healthy tips that are easy to adopt.
Eat seafood regularly
Rich in Omega 3, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), zinc and selenium, seafood really is the food of beauty. Omega 3, DHA and EPA provide actions on free radicals and help protect your cells from aggressors and aging. As for zinc, it helps fight against skin problems and selenium has an antioxidant action. As a bonus, seafood is low in calories!
Red fruit against skin aging
Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are concentrated in antioxidants known for their anti-aging powers. Go ahead, whip up a pretty red fruit salad!
Vitamin B for beautiful hair
Essential to the health of your hair, the B vitamins are known to strengthen the roots and contribute to the production of keratin. They can be found in many foods, such as brown rice, red beans and pork. In your shopping cart, slip in some tuna, salmon and cooked spinach too. As they do in Asia, sprinkle your salad with peanuts, rich in vitamin B.
Program a skin detox
