We are a nation obsessed with trying to look glamorous and pretty. This means that we can end up spending a small fortune on products that are designed to make our skin and hair look better but, sometimes, the health of our skin depends on the foods we’re eating.
Eat the right foods and you’ll reap the benefits; however it seems like every day we’re told about a new food that’s either good or bad for us in some way. This can make things hard when determining what we should be eating and, more importantly, what we should be cutting down on.
The latest infographic from Ogle School has decided to decipher just how we can have beautiful skin, hair, and nails through the foods we eat. For example, if you’re a chocoholic, it may be time for you to consider swapping out milk chocolate for small portions of dark chocolate. The flavanol content in dark chocolate can actually help to improve the smoothness of skin. Meanwhile, tomatoes contain lycopene which helps skin to increase its natural SPF, helping to prevent sunburn and skin damage.
The infographic also contains some easy-to-follow menus which will help you to craft a meal plan that’s both entirely satisfying and will help you look great. Take a look at the infographic below and see which foods you can swap out for something healthier and more beneficial to your skin.
