Belle peau, beaux cheveux, beaux ongles : quoi manger ?
Our body reflects our state of health, so it is important to have good eating habits so that your skin, your hair and your nails are resplendent. Even a slight change in your diet will have a beneficial effect as these parts of your body regenerate very quickly. Having a skin that stays nice all day long is a difficult task during the summer, when the sun ruins it and dries it up. But no need to spend a fortune on care products, an adapted diet will solve many of your problems!
Beautiful skin all day long
To keep a fresh complexion all day, there are some miracle foods. Eat fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants (such as artichokes, soy or kiwis) that will protect the cells of your skin from various external aggressions. Raspberries, too, are rich in antioxidants and contain many fibers that facilitate their absorption. Another very effective food for a beautiful skin is salmon. One of the best sources of omega-3, it is also filled with vitamins A, D, B6 and B12, and it contains a lot of iron and calcium. So do not hesitate, baked, steamed or even in sashimi, the salmon will restore its radiance to your skin!
A Princess's hair
The star vegetable for soft, shiny hair is carrot. Grated, in juice or sticks as an aperitif to avoid the summer pounds, devours carrots. They are the richest food in beta-carotene and vitamins A and will give shine to your hair (in addition, they will stimulate the production of melanin which gives a pretty color to your skin). Good to know: raw carrots are the most effective. You can also eat spinach, they contain a lot of iron, vitamin C and folate and thus boost the health of your scalp.
Do you always have damaged nails, are they striated or brittle? This may be a sign of lack of magnesium. For that do not hesitate to eat almonds, they are very rich in magnesium and are a source of vegetable proteins, perfect for a small break! If your nails have white spots, you're missing zinc. Zinc is an essential mineral to make the proteins of the nails but also hair. It is present in many foods, such as rye bread or poultry, but in fairly small quantities. To maximize the effects on your nails, we advise you to taste a dozen oysters (150 mg of zinc, much more than any other food) with a glass of good white wine!
