The way we choose what we eat drastically influences the state of health, but also the appearance of the skin or hair.

Depending on what you use to put on the plate, you can have beautiful hair or, on the contrary, an unhealthy and unkempt hair.

When certain foods are found in the daily diet, you can forget about split tips, dandruff or fat, lack of volume, excessive dropping, and any other scalp problems.

To strengthen hair

If you have a “weak” hair, you can try to cure it by eating foods containing Omega 3. Omega 3 fatty acids are part of the cell membrane structure.

When they are missing, you are likely to face the tendency of losing hair.

The most important sources of omega 3 are seafood and fatty fish.

Vegetarians can enjoy soy, seeds, nuts and olive oil.

For hair growth

Sometimes, nutritional deficiencies make their presence felt through hair growth problems.

Fortunately, we can consume growth-enhancing foods.

The effects are due to the beneficial elements – proteins and iron, the same being found in eggs.

Natural alternatives are vegetables, chickpeas, lemon and quinoa.

For a shiny and beautiful hair

The origin of the lack of hair shine is actually the condition of the head skin (which is too dry).

When sebaceous glands produce insufficient sebum, the hair tends to remain dry, hence the look “extinguished” or “washed out”.

In addition to the action of sunlight and the excessive use of the stretch plate or dryer, which contributes to the phenomenon, it can also be an unbalanced diet.

Of great help are potatoes, but also other foods rich in beta-carotene (vitamin A precursor).

Among other things, beta-carotene favours the production of sebum, a real balm for the scalp and hair.

So, say a great YES to all fruits and vegetables covering the pale yellow and orange – potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, yellow apples, melon, papaya, peaches, pineapples, mandarins, corn, yellow peppers, oranges, etc.

Collagen is an essential substance for the skin, for a young and beautiful look!

See what foods you can consume to stimulate its production!

Our body produces less collagen as we get older.

It is located beneath the epidermis. It is the basis of tissues that support the structure of the skin and organs.

Sun, free radicals, cigarette smoke or pollution also contribute to lowering its levels.

In order to “repair” the damaged cells, the body always produces collagen. But around the age of 35, the level of this substance and its quality begin to decrease.

There are many collagen creams and products on the market, but they cannot do wonders.

We can also stimulate the collagen production of our body with a healthy lifestyle including certain foods in the diet.

Here are some:

White tea

Researchers have found that white tea protects skin proteins.

In addition, it reduces the activity of enzymes that lead to wrinkles.

Citrus

They are rich in vitamin C and can turn certain amino acids into collagen.

Green vegetables

Spring greens, broccoli, spinach or kale are rich in vitamin C which has antioxidant properties.

Orange vegetables

Carrots and sweet potatoes regenerate the skin because they contain vitamin A.

Red vegetables

Tomatoes, red peppers and red beets contain a natural antioxidant that protects the skin from ultraviolet.

Protein

Egg proteins are rich in collagen. They support the natural production of this substance. Consumption of nuts has the same role.

Soy

Soy contains genistein, a substance that acts as an antioxidant.

Pure fish oil

The skin cells are surrounded by a fatty membrane that protects them. When they are healthy, they are able to support the structure of the skin. The fish is rich in Omega 3, and the benefits of oil consumption are countless for health, especially for internal organs tissues.
