1. Drink more water

Water is the basis of life. When there is not enough moisture in the skin, it looks more mature, becomes dry, its surface flakes off. For the health and radiance of the skin, water is necessary daily. If you are afraid to drink too much-you can get enough liquid with food! Spinach leaves, ripe tomatoes, juicy watermelon, soups based on broths, oatmeal and beans are characterized by a high moisture content. They will help to smooth the skin and maintain the right weight.

2. Lemon juice

Lemons are rich in vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, B vitamins and fiber. This yellow citrus helps to cleanse the body, promotes digestion and gives strength to the immune system. The well-known expression: "if life presents you only lemons, just make lemonade out of them" in relation to the benefits for the beauty of the skin takes on a direct meaning.

When I wake up, every morning I go to the garden and pick a fresh lemon from the tree. I squeeze the juice into a special container for smoothies and add filtered water. I leave the jar on the kitchen table and every time I pass by, I take a big sip. If I need to leave the house, I pour lemon water into a bottle, and I have the opportunity to drink it all day. In truth, such water is never enough!

3. Eat greens

If you do not want a salad, then one of the successful ways to add greens to the diet is to drink a smoothie. Kale, arugula, spinach the darker the color, the more effectively the greens fight free radicals that constantly destroy precious collagen. And don't forget to add avocado: healthy fats will significantly improve the condition of the skin.

My favorite green smoothie includes coconut water, kale, spinach, avocado, cucumber, prickly pear and ginger. Make a bigger portion in the morning and take it with you to the office, you will have something to eat. Such an afternoon snack will give you much more energy than a cup of coffee during a break!

4. Aloe

Aloe is an amazing plant with healthy properties, it can be used both internally and externally. Trying to avoid the burning rays of the sun and reduce irritation, you can apply a layer of cool, viscous green juice on your face. When I was little, in case of sunburn or small cuts, my mother always grew a large aloe plant. Aloe juice can be drunk, it is especially suitable for green smoothies.

5. Affirmations

External beauty depends on the inner mood and self-confidence, so it is effective to use affirmations. The eyes begin to shine, small wrinkles on the forehead are smoothed out, and a smile appears on the lips.

6. Turmeric

Our body is under the constant influence of stress. We eat too much fat, we don't sleep enough, we are exposed to toxins that lead to an imbalance of hormones regulating the metabolism and the malfunction of the immune system, so turmeric is a real panacea.

For anti-inflammatory purposes, take it in the morning and in the evening. Fresh turmeric root is suitable for green smoothies, as well as for omelets, salad dressing and even as a face mask!

An easy-to-prepare home remedy with an anti-inflammatory effect will soothe the skin, clear acne, reduce swelling and even smooth out wrinkles:

Mix 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 2 teaspoons of rice flour (for oily skin) or finely chopped oat flakes (for dry and mature skin) with 3 teaspoons of plain yogurt (or milk, cream, sour cream)

Apply the mixture in a thick layer on the cleansed skin of the face and wait for it to dry completely. After 15-20 minutes, wash off the mask. Use it once a week.

All fresh fruits and vegetables have a magical power that makes hair shiny, skin clean, and nails strong. The products that I will list below may not be so widely known for their strong beneficial effects on beauty. If you want to look attractive without resorting to botox or other unnatural means, try to include these products in your diet:

7.Red pepper

All red and orange products contain beta-carotene – a strong antioxidant. But red pepper in particular helps us to become more beautiful thanks to trace elements A, C and K. Vitamins A and C prevent cell damage leading to premature aging, and are also able to reduce irritation, which can make the face look swollen. In addition, pepper contains vitamin K, which has an excellent property of protecting our cells from damage.


If we consider leafy greens as a product for beauty, then it is really effective, thanks to the chlorophyll contained in it. There are also a lot of other phytochemical compounds and fiber in spinach, which contribute to a deep cleansing of the blood, which in turn affects the condition of the skin.

9.Pumpkin seeds

Wow, they are actually very healthy! What is not in pumpkin seeds! These crumbs contain a huge supply of zinc, calcium, potassium, magnesium and vitamins B, C and E. Pumpkin seeds are also a wonderful source of amino acids and omega-3 fatty acids, which are vital for healthy cell renewal. Make a handful of pumpkin seeds a permanent part of your diet, and you will definitely notice changes in your appearance.


The next time a dish on your plate is decorated with parsley, remember that this is a very useful herb. It slows down aging, cleans and disinfects the body. Parsley contains vitamins A and C and antioxidant flavonoids that protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals. In addition, parsley helps to purify the blood, kills bacteria, facilitates digestion and cleanses the liver of toxins.

Great news: all these products are available and easy to include in the diet. They go well with each other and other products, so now you can easily quickly prepare a wonderful beauty salad. Who said that beauty is difficult?
