Snacks that Make You Beautiful

Most people understand that foods can provide them with important nutrients and vitamins that make them feel better. However, not everyone is aware that some foods can actually improve or enhance appearance. Several foods have the ability to give an individual a better overall tone and glow. Improving one’s appearance can raise self-esteem and self-confidence levels significantly.

Apples Apples and other raw fruits and vegetables like cucumbers, carrots, pears and oranges can help to improve the appearance of one's teeth. These items help to massage gums, giving them a brighter, healthier look. Additionally, eating raw foods increases the amount of saliva in a person's mouth; increased saliva neutralizes the acids in the mouth and gives a person fresher breath. Someone who eats a plentiful amount of raw fruits and vegetables can decrease the amount of trips to the dentist every year while naturally enhancing his or her smile.


Wild Salmon Anyone with a skin condition like a rash or hives would be happy to know that wild salmon contains a substance called astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory element. That means that wild salmon can clear skin problems along with giving a person a radiant, beautiful appearance. Additionally, wild salmon contains omega 3 fatty acids, which can help a person to maintain high energy levels. Specialists have also proven that astaxanthin helps regulate the heart and combat depression.


Spinach Spinach has many qualities, including the ability to cure inflammation caused by sunlight and helping people fight wrinkles and skin cancer. Other benefits of spinach include an enhanced immune system and extra eye protection. Vitamin E is the main beneficial ingredient found in spinach. It also contains calcium, which is excellent for the teeth.


Chocolate Chocolate doesn't just taste great—it also enhances a person’s mood. Chocolate causes changes in a person’s brain chemistry that bring about feelings of happiness and satisfaction. The source of such a pleasurable feeling and an amazing glow is a compound called phenylethylamine, which is the same compound released in the brain when people fall in love. Additionally, dark chocolate contains antioxidants, which can help purify the body and the skin.


Raw honey Raw honey is full of vitamins and minerals that are good for the skin and the rest of the body. It contains vitamins A, C and E, which are excellent antioxidants. It also contains vitamins D and K, which support the skin. As a bonus, raw honey can be applied directly to skin burns, rashes and abrasions in the form of a poultice, making this treat doubly beneficial.

Many foods are available that can help a person to develop a better overall look. These foods are not all expensive or hard to find. In fact, many people have some of them growing in their own backyards. Rather than spending vast amounts of money on expensive skin and hair care products, the solution could be as simple as opening the refrigerator or going to the nearest grocery store.
