Wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime affair and you want to live upto your beauty potential. Beauty is a much deep-rooted phenomenon and a radiant appearance is dependent on what you decide to put into your mouth weeks before your wedding. The preparation for great skin begins with high-nutrient beauty foods. From the food perspective, the four dimensions of incredibly radiant appearance are dense nutrients, alkalizing foods, detoxification and hydration. Including foods that cater to all these dimensions are the key to preparing for a radiant appearance on your wedding day.
Coconut water tops the charts of beauty foods. Enriched with lauric acid, electrolyte balance for deep hydration and a dense concentration of nutrients, coconut water can help plump-up the skin with internal youth. Starting day with a combination of green smoothie and seasonal fruit helps clear out the toxins for clear, smooth complexion. Adding coconut water to your green smoothies adds the additional hydration element to the smoothie.
Other common beauty foods include enzyme-rich cucumbers & lemons that alkalize, cleanse and hydrate the body with essential beauty enhancing minerals.

While adding beauty foods, it is equally important to cut down foods that create havoc on the skin. Sugars and trans-fats top the chart of beauty destroying foods. We consume these through many hidden sources such as commercial beverages, bakery stuff and even morning cereals. Foods high on sugars & trans-fats accelerate aging by destroying skin with free radical damage that stiffens collagen resulting in never ending skin and body concerns including pigmentation, wrinkles, dull complexion, bloating, weight gain and low energy levels.
