Diet for Beauty (Contd.)

Protein

Skin is predominantly protein. Protein molecules are not absorbed through the epidermis into underlying tissues. So, you need to supply proteins through the foods you eat daily. A deficiency of proteins is indicated by the skin becoming slack and loose. Thus, adequate protein is necessary for healthy hair, skin, teeth and nails and for firm skin tissues.

Natural sources for Protein

Collagen-containing protein foods (help prevent and smooth out wrinkles)

  • Avocados

  • Brewer's yeast

  • Dried legumes

  • Nuts

  • Sesame

  • Sunflower seeds

  • Whole grain cereals

Other protein foods (These help your body equalize the balance between new and dying cells.)

  • Fish

  • Meats

  • Poultry

  • Eggs

  • Dairy products

  • Vegetable proteins

  • Pulses

  • Wheat germ

Fats and Oils

The unsaturated fats in vegetable oils assist assimilation of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and E; contribute to your own natural oils to give your skin a sheen, plump out fine lines, and create the fresh-faced look of youth. One or two tablespoons a day can be used as salad dressing or whizzed in the blender with milk, fruit, or vegetable drinks.

Natural sources of Fat

  • Butter

  • Vegetable oils

  • Nuts

Water

Water should be taken in large quantities, from six to eight glasses a day. It gives the skin the necessary moisture and a dewy look. Water clears the system of all toxins and keeps the blood free from impurities. Water also protects the skin against pimples. In case of insufficient intake of water, the body will draw on all its water reservoirs, including those of the skin, resulting in dehydration of the skin.
