It’s a fact of life: our looks and presentation can make or break a lot of important situations we face. That is the reason we pay so much time and money on getting perfectly smooth, supple and glowing skin and shiny, bouncy hair.
But what if we tell you that you can get the same without burning a hole in your pockets? Yes, you read that right! Getting flawless skin is not that tough after all. You just have to watch what you eat. Rather you have to incorporate these superfoods in your diet, which are better and far more effective than most of your cosmetics and beauty products and treatments.
Dark Chocolate: Now this is one of those get-gorgeous foods that you will gorge on happily. Chocolate contains anti-ageing antioxidants called flavonoids, which fight free radicals to protect your skin from UV damage and help prevent the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and skin discoloration. Not just skin, chocolate is equally beneficial for your hair. Being a circulation-booster, it promotes growth of healthy, lustrous tresses. The anti-inflammatory properties minimises the chances of getting scalp infections.
Spinach fights signs of ageing.
Spinach: This is one of the most loved and versatile greens in the world. People like it in their soups, sandwiches and many other dishes. And now you will have more reasons to consume it more often! Spinach is rich in beta carotene, vitamin B, C, E, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce signs of ageing. It prevents wrinkles and removes dead skin. It also helps retain moisture in the skin. The fatty acids help to get the shine back in your hair.

Yoghurt: Yoghurt is one of those mega get-gorgeous foods packed with good bacteria, vitamin B, C and E. Regular consumption of yogurt helps fight acne, reduce blemishes and pigmentation and keeps the skin moisturised. It also keeps the scalp moisturised and reduces hair fall.
Walnuts protect your hair from sun damage.
Walnuts: Although almost all nuts are beneficial for hair and skin in some or the other way, but the walnut is actually the superfood or rather the supernut of them all. They are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which keep the skin healthy. They also protect hair from sun damage and keep them lustrous and shiny.
Coconut boosts hair growth and keeps your skin moisturized.
Coconut: The water from coconut contains potassium, an electrolyte that hydrates the skin from within keeping it naturally moisturized. Similarly, the oils in coconut are high in healthy fats, vitamins E and K and minerals, which boost hair growth and shine by moisturising the scalp.
