This leafy green vegetable is rich in nutrients and antioxidants. Spinach is loaded with lutein, which keeps your eyes healthy and sparkling.

Eating red helps keep skin from turning red. Tomatoes are found to be most effective in keeping the skin healthy and glowing. Many masks, scrubs and packs are made by using tomato juice or tomato pulp. Tomatoes can cure acne and pimples.

 

YES!…CHOCOLATES

chocolate

Well..that’ll be your favorite one. Dark chocolate is a skin-friendly ingredient that helps keeping your skin healthy, glowing and just flawless. Dark chocolate hosts a range of potent antioxidants. These antioxidants protect your skin from free radical damage; keeping it soft, supple and juvenile for long. If chocolate is your weakness, indulging in an ounce of the good stuff (dark with 70 percent or more cocoa content) each day is not only a delicious treat, but also provides benefits for your heart, skin and whole body.

 

As a bonus, these nutritional superstars also do wonders for the rest of your body—build brainpower, lower cholesterol, improve sleep, and more. Rather than lathering too many creams and cosmetics on your skin, why not add a natural glow to it?
