Skin Food: Beauty within Food

We all love to possess a radiant glowing skin, thick lustrous hair, healthy nails & bright sparkling eyes. The food that we eat is of utmost importance to achieve this goal. Less water causes blotchy, dull skin & acne. Consume 7-8 glasses of water daily. Replace refined flour with whole grains as during the refining process, the Vitamin B, proteins and fibres are removed. A balanced diet of proteins, carbohydrate and fats with the required amount of minerals and vitamins is essential for good, healthy skin.

PROTEINS for beautiful skin

The proteins are needed for repair of body tissues. The skin and hair need enough protein and the deficiency causes dull and dry skin and scalp. Vegetarians specially need to plan their diets carefully to include protein rich foods such as soya beans, sprouts, cheese, milk, grains, peas & beans. Freshly made cheese from toned milk is an excellent source of protein for the vegetarians. Sprouted beans are enormously rich in nutrition as both the Vitamin B and C content increases as much as 40% during sprouting. If porridge sounds to drab, make it interesting by adding the fruit of your choice to it. Include yogurt in your meals. This dairy product contains bacteria which keeps intestines clean, giving a healthy glow to your skin.

CARBOHYDRATES for beautiful skin

Sugar is one of those carbohydrate rich food which has no value. On the contrary, it can cause acne, poor circulation and obesity. So instead of sugar, add brown sugar or honey to your diet. Both help purify blood and cleanse the body of toxins. Other refined carbohydrates like cause the problem are white flour and white bread in which the nutrients such as vitamins and fibre get removed during refining. These thus largely provide empty calories. Excess carbohydrate which is not needed to supply immediate energy demands, is stored as fat. So, avoid white bread etc, instead opt for brown bread and whole wheat flour chapattis.

Fat: You need very little fat, but a little is necessary for good circulation and supple & soft skin.

VITAMINS for beautiful skin

Adequate supply of vitamins are very helpful in maintaining a healthy and glowing skin; and preventing premature ageing.

FIBRE for beautiful skin

Fibre is very important. This indigestible carbohydrate is concentrated in the peels & rinds of fruits and vegetables and in the outer layers of grains and pulses. Fibre rich foods promote radiant flossy skin and clear eyes.
