Beauty Foods - how to achieve beautiful skin through what you eat!

BEAUTY FOODS  - for skin and teeth 
"Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, 
faithfulness the best relationship" - Buddah

Carrot seed oil is found in many skin-care formulas. It is great for revitalising skin, eczema and premature ageing. Carrots are the natural alternative to Retin A

INTERESTING FACT: SPF products containing naturally extracted carrot oil can help you achieve a beautiful golden tan and can actually provide more protection than normal cream!

The texture of cheese actually helps decrease the secretion of saliva, which helps fight cavities!  Swiss and Cheddar are two varieties that reduce bacteria in the mouth, and prevent cavities. Low-fat yoghurt is also great for this

INTERESTING FACT: after a sweet-treat, have a mouthful of cheese. This will help neutralise the bad effect sugar has on your teeth - BUT, don't forget to brush! 

Tomatoes are the secret to beautiful, glowing skin! Tomatoes are rich in Vitamin A, C, anti-oxidants and potassium
INTERESTING FACT & TIP: mix tomatoe juice and honey, apply as a mask for 15 mins to your face and neck. Tomatoes also help reduce the enlarged pores on your face, and sooth sunburn 

GARLICGarlic works as an anti-oxidant, which helps combat wrinkles and restore tissue. Many believe that applying smashed garlic to your face (avoiding eyes/sensitive areas) can help heal acne and blemishes 
INTERESTING FACT: garlic can help increase blood flow and circulation, which in turn aids signs of premature ageing

I would love to hear about your secrets to achieving beautiful skin. It would be great if we could share recipes and tips - email me at
