Don’t forget these easy-to-find staples
While many of us are aware of the common wonder foods that help us look and feel great, it’s worth considering these alternatives too
Yogurt: Grab a tub of Greek yogurt at your local supermarket; it can do a lot more than provide calcium for strong bones. It is an ideal beauty promoter, thanks to its protein content that will give you smooth skin. New York dermatologist Jeannette Graf says: ‘Milk dairy yogurt can enhance breakouts, but Greek yogurt contains probiotics that helps the colon eliminate waste, putting less stress on our skin to do the same.’ Soy: Not just an alternative to dairy, it’s packed with minerals and proteins that help protect your skin from hyperpigmentation. Red bell peppers: We all know the power of vitamin C for reducing fine lines, but did you know that red peppers contain more vitamin C than oranges? Vitamin C helps boost collagen production and is a great antioxidant, so add these to your diet to turn back the clock. Oysters: These plump delicacies work wonders for nails, hair and skin thanks to their zinc content, which helps the function of skin cells.
