My beauty routine consists of moisturizer, anti-aging cream, a good cleanser and makeup. I never really considered food to be a vital part of my beautifying process, which is surprising for as much as I like to eat. I’m aware of the inner health benefits of certain food, however my appetite increased after I read about their outer effects. The next time I go to the grocery store, I’m going to be looking at it more like the cosmetic section in the department store.

Skin Firming
Blood oranges, cherries and blueberries are high in antioxidants, which reduce aging by lowering inflammation. Antioxidants also increase the product of collagen and thicken your skin, giving you a younger and healthier appearance. A blood orange a day could keep the botox away?

No More Puffyness

Salt addicts, it’s time to trade in your shaker for oregano, thyme, parsley and garlic. These herbs and spices will offer flavor to your meal and won’t puff up like a blowfish. Skip the salt and you’ll avoid the dreaded bags under your eyes.

Pearly Whites
Raw veggies such as celery, carrots and string beans are packed with cellulose, which helps to scrub stains from your teeth. Not only will you have a brighter smile, the cellulose also cleans and removes bacteria from your teeth. We’re not suggesting you trade your toothbrush for a celery stick, but it’s definitely something to chew on.

Younger Skin and Shiny Hair
Meat, chicken, low-fat cheese, lentils and soybeans are protein rich, helping to promote cell growth and repair. That means younger looking skin, less wrinkles and shiny hair.

Glowing Skin
Almond milk contains high levels of magnesium, potassium, copper, vitamin E and calcium. The omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids in almond milk give you glowing skin, as well as boost your immune system.
