Fad di­ets can lead to de­hy­dra­tion and make skin dull and in­flex­i­ble. In­crease your in­take of wa­ter to three litres daily. Pro­tein is es­sen­tial for cell devel­op­ment so to restore good health of skin, hair and nails con­sume a pro­tein rich diet. If a healthy skin is your tar­get, con­sume seeds, nuts, fresh veg­eta­bles, fruits, curd and honey. Sup­ple­ment diet with es­sen­tial vi­ta­mins like vi­ta­min A, which is vi­tal for main­te­nance of skin tis­sue and B Com­plex for a healthy glow and less hair loss.

To re­gain good skin health, Dr. Man­jari Pu­ranik, weight loss ex­pert at In­sat Sculpt ad­vises, “Ap­ply an­tiox­i­dant-rich pome­gran­ate lo­cally to help skin cre­ate more col­la­gen which speeds-up heal­ing. Con­sum­ing straw­ber­ries, cit­rus fruits, red peppers, and broc­coli helps in smooth tex­ture while sun­flower seeds and al­monds help in pro­tec­tion against sun.” If you want a fresh com­plex­ion to beat the af­ter-ef­fects of a fad diet? Go for veg­gies that are dark or­ange and red in colour. Also, leafy greens, wild salmon, At­lantic mack­erel, wal­nuts help fight wrin­kles. Be wary of those temp­ta­tion-in­duc­ing fad diet pro­grams and re­sort to nor­mal, healthy work-out rou­tines and a nu­tri­tious diet!
