Want to know the little secret to gorgeous hair and glowing skin? It has been hiding in your kitchen all this time. Yes, you heard it right. Instead of going through extensive beauty treatments, take a look in your kitchen. Today, allow us to list down 5 best foods that have been in your kitchen all this while that can help you achieve that glorious look of your dreams.

 

Walnuts:

Walnuts contain nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E that help retain body moisture, keep your skin smooth and plump, and give your mane a healthy-looking shine. Walnuts help boost hair follicles and protect your hair from sun damage to keep it long, strong, lustrous and shiny. Get your daily dose of by eating a handful raw or throwing some chopped walnuts in your salad, pasta or dessert to enjoy their many benefits: smoother skin, healthy hair, brighter eyes, and strong bones.

 

Spinach:

This leafy green vegetable is rich in nutrients and antioxidants, loaded with vitamins A, B, C, and E, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids. It helps to keep your eyes healthy and sparkling, boost collagen production, promoting the skin’s firmness and elasticity, fighting wrinkles and undoing all the damage caused by exposure to UV rays and environmental toxins. It also helps prevent hair breakage. Enjoy spinach in salads, green smoothies, or lightly sautéed with coconut oil, garlic and a dash of sea salt.

 

Avocados:

Avocados are the ultimate "get gorgeous" food. Rich, creamy, and packed with good-for-you monounsaturated fats, avocados are one of the all-time best foods for healthy skin and hair. Avocados contain good amounts of vitamins A, D and E and omega-9 fatty acids ‘ one of the building blocks of healthy skin ‘ which is highly concentrated in the oil. These nutrients help to even out skin tone over time and fight the signs of ageing and prevent inflammation of the skin. They also contain Vitamin E, Vitamin B and healthy fats (a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids). These work at the cellular level to protect and strengthen hair. Vitamin B is essential for hair growth. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps repair damage on the scalp, which may slow or prevent hair growing. Antioxidants are powerful, fighting harmful free radicals.

 

Eggs:

Whether you enjoy them sunny side up for breakfast or boiled and sliced cold over a green salad, eggs are serious healthy-hair helpers. Egg yolks contain biotin, which is a B Vitamin. When Biotin levels are low, it may result in brittle nails and hair loss, while healthy levels of biotin may actually reverse such conditions. One of their key ingredients is sulfur, they are great for those in need of glowing skin and strong hair because sulfur is necessary for the production of collagen and keratin in the body which help create and maintain shiny locks, strong nails, and glowing skin.

 

Tomatoes:

Forever popular as Skin Care superheroes, tomatoes are another great source of Vitamin C and contain all of the major carotenoids, including the anti-ageing antioxidant lycopene that has been shown to protect the skin against damage from the sun and may also help prevent signs of ageing. Vitamin C also helps strengthen hair follicles and prevents breakage. Surprisingly, lycopene in tomatoes is more easily absorbed by your body when it is cooked or processed, so make sure to stock up on canned tomato sauce, tomato juice, and ketchup to get the biggest beauty benefits from this food for healthy skin and hair.

There are several other foods such as Yogurt, dark chocolate, oysters, chia seeds, almonds, coconut etc which consist of all the required nutrients and antioxidants to achieve extraordinary hair and skin.
