These foods that make us naturally beautiful

Bathroom versus kitchen. When it comes to getting a makeover, the right piece is not necessarily the one you think. What if our beauty creams contained carrots and asparagus? Eating well is a guarantee of good health, of course, but also of beautiful skin and a silhouette that you love. A little point on these foods that make you beautiful.

Carrot and tomato: mirror, do you also find me looking good?

Here is a healthy-looking cocktail to consume without moderation. Carrots and tomatoes are rich in carotenoids, the orange pigments found in certain plants. They prepare our skin for the sun by stimulating the production of melanin to give it a nice tan, and protect against free radicals, since they are also antioxidants (be careful, eating carrots does not exempt you from applying sunscreen at each exposure extended). Eat them in salads, juices, soups or purees!

Asparagus: slim jeans just have to behave

Green, white or purple, asparagus is full of fiber and promotes smooth transit, even for the laziest intestines. They also have a diuretic power of champions. In short, asparagus are the allies of a flat stomach. But that's not all. They contain two fat burners - inulin and asparagine - and are rich in potassium and low in sodium: they prevent the storage of salt in the body and reduce water retention. You've probably made the connection, asparagus fights cellulite. For a similar effect after the season of these pretty vegetable plants, go for the leeks that are eaten all year round depending on the variety.

Seafood and fish: bye bye grumpy air (and small pimples)

Feeling depressed, closed face and drawn features… What would beauty be without good humor? Fish is a powerful source of omega 3, these fatty acids which help our neurotransmitters circulate dopamine and serotonin, the hormones of happiness. Eat salmon, sardines, or mackerel (avocado if you're vegan) regularly. Especially during your period to keep smiling (and take that tense look away from me, put on your menstrual panties to comfort yourself). Finally, seafood, rich in zinc, helps us fight against small imperfections during our periods.

Green tea: a bowl of youth and fresh air

To consume antioxidants while draining you, bet on green tea. It is full of vitamin C and polyphenols, allies of our cells against the free radicals responsible for their aging. Drink your tea in full consciousness, that is to say while taking pleasure in it, giving yourself a few minutes to concentrate on the simple fact of drinking this little piece of garden. This will also help relieve stress if you have it, which is also responsible for accelerated aging. For younger skin, also enjoy kiwi, grapes and… chocolate! And yes, in small doses, dark chocolate plays anti-wrinkle thanks to the flavonoids it contains.

And for a dream mane...

For shiny hair and healthy nails, sprinkle your salads with brewer's yeast or wheat germ. And don't skimp on olive oil, flaxseed oil or walnut oil!
