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.
