Beauty Boosters

Things like the cold weather and central heating can play havoc with your skin. Try incorporating these five foods into your diet to help enhance and nourish your skin, nails and hair.

Berries

Berries are bursting with vitamin C, which is important for repair and maintenance of healthy skin and the production of collagen. Add some strawberries, blueberries or raspberries to your morning cereal, mix them with natural yoghurt or simply nibble on them during the day for a delicious snack.

Oats

Oats are high in biotin, which belongs to the B vitamin family and is essential for maintaining healthy skin and hair. Boost your intake of oats by including oats in your breakfast (porridge, muesli or in a smoothie).

Oats are a healthy source of energy

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes contain beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A by the body. Vitamin A is necessary for cell growth and a deficiency can lead to dry skin and dull, lifeless hair. Replace regular potatoes for yummy sweet potatoes and add to soups and stews for some extra delicious nutrients.

Oily Fish

Oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring and sardines are rich sources of essential fatty acids, which can help improve the condition of dry skin. Try to eat at least two portions of oily fish a week.

Brazil nuts

Brazil nuts are rich in selenium which has antioxidant properties. Selenium works in conjunction with vitamin E to boost healthy hair and nails.
