As a bride to be, there are multiple rounds of fittings, salon appointments, dermatology visits and much more. But the one thing that will truly reflect on your skin is the inner glow and that can come only by eating right. Here are the things that you should be eating instead of buying expensive potions to slather on your skin!

 

1. Strawberries

The season is just right for it too! One cup of strawberries has 130% of your daily requirement of Vitamin C, which is essential for good skin. It boosts the production of collagen that keeps skin tight. Berries are also a rich source of ellagic acid that keeps skin from sagging. So stock up on those berries!

3. Fish

For all you non-vegetarians out there, this is a blessing in disguise. You can load up on your regional fish food without any worries. As one of the richest sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, it’s vital for skin hydration, radiance, and several cardiac health benefits. Furthermore, it is rich in anti-inflammatory fats and selenium, a mineral responsible for tissue elasticity. Opt for curries and steamed fish over fried.

Choose wholegrain over white versions of bread, rice and pasta and snack on oatcakes, nuts, and seeds. Wholegrain, like oats and millet, are excellent sources of the trace mineral silica, which is essential for healthy skin, hair and nails.
