5 Best foods that will make your skin glow and hair shine!

foods skin hair

Your appearance is crucial.

People deny appearance influencing their judgements regarding you.

How I wish to believe this!

An attractive person always earns more brownie points than someone who is ‘considered’ unattractive.

While you cannot exactly change the way you look, there is still a whole lot of room for improvement.

And how good you look begins with how good your hair looks!

While it is true that having great hair has something to do with your genes, it is not the complete truth.

It is just like your exams in school, the sharpest kid would top the exam most of the times but there were instances when a hard working kid would work his back off and top the exam occasionally.

Trust me, if you do not have the most blessed genes or even if you do, you can still improve the quality of your hair drastically.

While there isn’t a lot you can do about your face, except for using all sorts of foundations and creams and what-not, you are always going to appear as some version of you.

Regarding attaining a great, enviable body, you know there are no better tips elsewhere than those we provide at Scientific Nutrition.

But what else is there that you can work up on?

HintIt is the largest organ of your body!

Yes! Your skin!

There are so many people, who pay no attention to their skin.

And sadly, most of those who do, do it wrongly!

But nevertheless, Hair and Skin are not only the two most crucial but also the two most workable parts of your body!

But, don’t there already exist products in the market that improve hair and skin quality?

Yes, there do exist such products. But can you rely on them solely? Probably not!

Not only can you not rely on them to do the job, but also you cannot completely trust the chemicals and alien ingredients they use.

There is one brilliant way, which not only guarantees results, but also guarantees them without side effects!

Nutrition.

Hasn’t nutrition been the answer to almost every problem? Be it weight loss, be it illness, be it a bad mood, be it whatever!

We have selected the top 5 foods that will improve your hair and skin quality, and you won’t stop thanking us! (Not that we want to be thanked!)

Walnut

Walnut-scrub, anyone?

Walnuts are made into a paste form and applied to moisturize dry skin or to cleanse skin pores.

However, you will get a similar effect if you simply consumed whole walnuts directly.

A part of the nut family, walnuts are super rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, an essential fat and Vitamin E, an antioxidant.

You can eat walnuts for snacks, used crushed walnuts over your salads or even use them as garnish on your desserts.

They will improve the strength of your hair as well as make your skin smoother than ever.

Kiwi

Kiwi is not a commonly had fruit in India.

But these days it is amply available from roadside vendors as well as the supermarket and has made way in to our fruit cakes as well!

It has quite a different taste – sweet tartish which might be able to tickle a few taste buds.

Coming to the nutritional value of Kiwi, it is an excellent source of Vitamin C like many other fruits and contains a number of antioxidants which slow the aging of your skin and other tissues.

So you could start experimenting with Kiwi by including it in your fruit bowl or fruit salad. You won’t regret it!

Salmon (Ravas)

Pomfret is the most popular fish, at least in Mumbai! Even Kingfish (Surmai) is loved by a number of people.

But I have yet to encounter a Salmon (Ravas) fan. Not that people do not like Ravas, but no one is particularly in love with it.

But if you wish to improve the quality of your skin and hair, you should be eating more Ravas!

It is the best source of Omega 3 fatty acids which prevent drying of skin by keeping the moisture in it intact.

Also a super source of Selenium, it keeps you skin protected from the harsh sun.

The Vitamin D in salmon is an additional boon as it keeps your bones and teeth strong and healthy.

Chia Seeds (Sabja)

These little seeds pack a lot in them than you could ever imagine!

The super food is replete with protein, antioxidants, minerals and Omega 3 fatty acids!

While their status as super food is firmly established, they haven’t been able to find their way in typical Indian diets and people use is mostly to garnish faloodas and hardly anywhere else!

You can use sabja to garnish salads, ice creams, curd or yogurt and use it anywhere you think they fit!

Sabja will not only improve the quality of your skin and hair but your health overall!

Dark Chocolate

I haven’t seen a lot many Indians eating dark chocolates. Most prefer milk chocolates.

Although they are slightly bitter, the health benefits associated with dark chocolates are many more than those regular chocolates have to offer!

When it comes to chocolates, the bitter the better!

‘Why so?’ you may ask with a not so nice expression. 😛

It is because dark chocolates have high flavanol and cacao content which are blessings for your skin!

They keep your skin moisturized and protected.

Honourable Mentions –

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Spinach
  • Lobster
  • Almonds
  • Avocados
  • Lentils

Include these foods in your regular diet and see what magic it does to your hair and skin! 😀
