The Beauty Foods

Cranberries- Eat these to keep your urinary tract lining healthy.

Sweet Potatos- Vitamin A is known to be a remarkable anti-wrinkling agent.
Sweet potatoes are full of this important vitamin. Results in clearer smoother skin.

Garlic- Helps fight wrinkles and restores tissue.

Non-Fat Yogurt- High in calcium which keeps your smile white and your teeth cavity free.

Apple Cider Vinegar- Beside having amazing healing properties, apple cider vinegar keeps
skin supple. It's heavy concentration of enzymes helps peel off dead skin cells. It breaks
down fat and helps food digest properly.

Carrots- Maintain the outer layer of the skin to prevent premature aging. What you'll find
in is the same as you'll get in Retin A.

Cheese- To ensure a happy smile, add a slice or two of hard cheese into your diet.
Choose Swiss, cheddar, or gouda to block bacteria in the mouth and prevent cavities.

Wheat Germ- If you want to get rid of pimples quickly and efficiently, make sure to
include two or three tablespoons a day in your diet. Add it to cereal, yogurt, and cottage cheese.

Tomatos- Rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium.

Citrus Fruits- Hold the skin cells together by forming collagen. Collagen cannot be
added to the skin topically, which is why fruits and fruit juices are such an important
part of the daily diet.

These are must haves:
Vegetables- Three to five servings daily. Try to include one serving of raw, leafy
greens and always remember, the darker the green the better because this means
there are more nutrients in it.

Fruits- Two to three servings daily. A 1/2 cup of chopped or sliced fruit is a serving.
Make a big fruit salad and add all your favorite fruits.

Dairy- At least two servings daily. A serving would be eight ounces of milk or yogurt.

Fats- Salad dressing, cooking oil, butter, and mayonnaise should be limited to two
servings a day.

It's never too late to start eating the right foods for great health and beauty :)
