One thing many people don’t quite realize is the foods they eat on a daily basis impact not only their health and body weight but their physical appearance as well. Eat the right foods and you can look forward to hair that shines and skin that gives off a radiant glow.
Let’s look at the best foods to start adding to your eating plan today…
1. Salmon. The omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon help enhance almost every single element of your health: your skin included. Eating food rich in this healthy fat will help keep your skin, and hair feeling moisturized and strong.
This fatty acid can also combat inflammation, so can contribute to reducing the appearance of puffiness in your skin as well.
2. Spinach. Spinach is the next must-have in your eating plan to help boost skin and hair health. Spinach is full of zinc and iron, both of which are critical for healthy hair growth and maintenance.
With a full spectrum of antioxidants, this food can also help prevent oxidative damage, which could also leave your skin looking lackluster.
3. Red Bell Peppers. Red bell peppers are a winner as far as vitamin C content goes, so another food you will want to be including in your eating plan on a regular basis. Vitamin C helps boost the production of collagen surrounding your hair, keeping it strong. Vitamin C also nourishes your skin, keeping your complexion blemish free while also contributing to an even skin tone.
Low in calories, red bell peppers are an easy add to your eating plan.
4. Coconut Oil. Coconut oil is one of the healthiest fats you can consume, despite the fact it is a saturated fat. The fatty acids found in coconut oil will help strengthen your immune system, while also contributing to improving your overall complexion.
Many people use coconut oil directly on their face or use it melted to create a rinse for healthier hair.
5. Eggs. Finally, don’t leave out those eggs. While you don’t want to eat multiple eggs per day, one or two can be a perfect part of an eating plan and eggs also supply the vital nutrients including vitamin B and sulfur, both of which are going to help you with improving your skin’s health.
There you have the top foods to consider adding to your food choices if you are hoping to boost your health and ensure your skin and hair are looking their best.
Although managing your disease can be very challenging, Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. You can make simple changes to your daily routine and lower both your weight and your blood sugar levels. Hang in there, the longer you do it, the easier it gets.
