Eating three portions of yellow fruit and veg every day can make you more attractive
according to a new study by the University of St Andrews, which revealed it took just six weeks for women to notice their skin was firmer and had a glow.
It’s all down to the natural pigments called carotenoids, found in foods like tomatoes, carrots and oranges, which gives them their colour.
They boost skin tone, slow down ageing and stop toxins making it look dull and pasty.
Celebrities like Katy Perry and Gwyneth Paltrow are all said to have tweaked their diet to boost beauty.
Lots of anti-ageing products are a mix of the ingredients you’ll find in the foods you eat every day, including eggs, oats and oily fish, but also of course in IsoWhey!
So save yourself some money on posh products and eat your way to sparkling eyes, glossy hair and gorgeous looking skin!
For a natural face-lift
What you need: Vitamin E
Where you’ll find it: Oats, IsoWhey
Celeb fan: Jennifer Lopez
Rick Hay, an international nutritionalist says: “Oats contain the complex carbohydrates we need for energy, plus B vitamins, vitamin E, fibre, selenium and calcium, which all help to give the body some powerful anti-ageing protection.”
Eating oats can also help boost the production of baby skin cells, which keep your complexion firm and plump, acting just like a natural face-lift! They also work by stimulating the immune system.
For healthy teeth and gums
What you need: Zinc
Where you’ll find it: Black and green tea, IsoWhey
Celeb fan: Angelina Jolie
Zinc helps build strong bones, keeps our gums pink and healthy, and prevents gum disease.
Swap your normal cuppa for redbush tea. It’s caffeine-free, which means you can drink more of it and unlike ordinary tea and coffee, it won’t stain your teeth.
Or try Twinnings Australian afternoon tea, and keep it partriotic!
For sparkling, bright eyes
What you need: Vitamin B12 and lutein
Find it in: Eggs
Celeb fan: Cheryl Cole
They are protein packed and contain lutein, an ingredient the body can’t make, but our eyes need it. Eggs are also a great source of vitamin B12 or riboflavin that keeps eyes bright.
if you can, try starting the day with scrambled eggs tossed with cherry tomatoes, which contain the vitamins the body needs to absorb protein.
For less cellulite
What you need: Vitamin A
Find it in: Avocado, IsoWhey
Celeb fan: Gwyneth Paltrow
This food is made up of good-for-you oils including oleic acid that acts as a natural moisturiser.
and according to many nutritionalists they also have a clever alkalising effect on the body that helps stop the breakdown of cells that make skin sag as well prevent toxin build-up that can lead to cellulite.
For stronger, healthy nails
What you need: Vitamin D
Find it in: Fish
Celeb fan: Liz Hurley
Better known as the sunshine vitamin, oily fish like salmon and mackerel, also contain omega-3 fatty acids that keep the nail bed healthy and speed up growth.
Vitamin D works with calcium to help nails grow long and stops them from splitting.
Try to include three portions of oily fish in your diet each week.
For glossy locks
What you need: Selenium
Find it in: Bananas, IsoWhey
Celeb fan: Katy Perry
A must for super-shiny, glossy-looking hair. This trace mineral may help the thyroid promote healthy hair growth and keep it healthy.
You can find it in lots of foods, including cheese, chicken, brazil nuts and bananas. Freeze a banana for two hours – the result tastes like ice-cream.
For less wrinkles
What you need: Betacarotene
Find it in: Oranges
Celeb fan: Penelope Cruz
One of nature’s best antioxidants, it’s the betacarotene and vitamin A that helps to prevent toxin damage. It helps build collagen, the network under the skin that keeps it looking young, and speeds up the delivery of oxygen to skin cells helping to keep your complexion looking fresh.
