Fasting promotes clearer and glowing skin.
Does your skin get dry, dull and lifeless, from time to time? Well, that’s very normal with the kind of pollution and stress around us! All these factors lead to the skin losing its lustre. Fasting accelerates the body’s self-healing ability. As a result, cell regeneration also accelerates, leading to radiant and luminous skin. Faster cell regeneration also means healthier hair and nails as well.
Fasting also leads to healthy and shiny hair.
Healthy and Shiny Hair
Just like great skin, fasting also leads to healthy and shiny hair. If you plan properly and resort to just fruits to break your fast, then it is going to be extremely beneficial for your hair. The vitamin C and other nutrients are going to prevent hair fall and add life and shine to your hair.
Fasting promotes faster healing of scars and wounds.
Short-term fasting also helps clear up persistent skin conditions like eczema. It promotes faster healing of scars and wounds. The reason behind speedy healing is that the body is free from digestion for a certain time, which shifts the body’s energies to regenerate other systems. Awesome, right!
Fasting, if done the right way can help in weight loss.
One of the sweetest benefits of fasting is weight loss! Although it is considered to be a myth but research suggest that fasting does help in weight loss, if it is followed by the right kind of food. When the supply of food is stopped to the body, the body starts breaking down existing fat cells for energy, resulting in weight loss.
