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.

Food : 4 beneficial habits for beauty

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


To eliminate the accumulated toxins, it’s a great idea to give your skin detox, about once a month. During a Zen weekend, follow our easy detox recommendation:
· Choose foods that are reputed to cleanse the liver: the bitter vegetables, exotic and citrus fruits.
· Don’t forget to include artichoke, a major feature of the Cretan Diet, as it helps eliminate toxins and it has a draining action.
· You can also drink lemon juice diluted with water on waking in the morning.

Introducing the collagen diet.

Yes, you can eat your way to boost this vital skin protein.    
Collagen, the essential skin protein. The invisible support structure keeping skin firm, plump and young from the inside-out and the outside-in. The protein whose decline is regulated like a timer.  Every year, from our late twenties, skin will lose it at a rate of 1%* (1) since its production slows down. But this happens even faster if we over-eat foods that accelerate this natural 1% decline.  To find out how much the foods that pass our lips impact the collagen in our skin, read on.
