Skin, Hair and Nail Diet
Shiny hair, strong nails and glowing skin may not come from your beauty regime, but from a nutritious diet. Certain foods have ‘beauty nutrients’. Though there's no magic food that willmake us look young forever, but diet, lifestyle and attitude affect how your skin looks and ages.
Skin, hair and nails are mostly protein. These proteins – keratin, collagen and elastin – ward off wrinkles and provide strength and elasticity. Our body also needs fat, especially omega-3 and omega-6 fats. If you have a dry, itchy scalp or skin, you may not be eating enough of these. These are known as 'essential' fats because the body does not produce them and you have to consume them.
