High in fiber, loaded with anti-oxidants, full of calcium and packed with various miraculous benefits, nuts are very essential for the body. Enriched with vitamins and minerals, like copper, zinc, vitamin A, C, and E, each little nut will promote a healthy collagen production. No doubt they’re called ‘Super Foods’.

Vegetables like tomatoes, beetroots, Indian gooseberries, and carrots are some vegetables that will help your cheeks flush pink. Swear by tomatoes and beets for that job, or else make a concoction of tomatoes, beets and Indian gooseberries and gulp it up. Your skin will thank you.
Keep yourself hydrated at all times. Consume at least 4 liters of water every day. Water plays an important role in clearing out any blemishes, making your skin supple bouncy and fresh. Because you are a to-be bride, we’ll inform you with something more interesting than just drinking water. Try this Japanese water therapy:
• Drink 4-6 glasses of room temperature or lukewarm water before brushing your teeth. You can start with 3 glasses if you’re not used to drinking water in the morning. Adding few drops of lemon or organic honey is completely ones choice.
• Do not consumer any food for another 45 minutes because your body won’t be able to fully absorb the water that way.
• After 25 minutes of breakfast, lunch or dinner do not eat or drink anything for another 2 hours.
Give rein to Dark Chocolate
Yay! A win-win. Finally there’s something apart from boring and dull foods mentioned above, and hey, we’re not kidding. Consuming dark chocolate will make you forget sunscreen application as it is filled with antioxidants and cocoa flavanols that help repair the skin from within. According to researchers, women who intake suitable amounts of cocoa have better skin texture and stronger resistance to UV rays as compared to women who don’t.
And honey you’ll have to ditch these, we’re sorry!
These intakes are anyway not desirable for the body and if you want to gleam on your D-Day you will have to breakup with these unpromising edibles.
Cut down on your intake of coffee, tea and aerated drinks, switch to herbal tea and coffee and fresh juices instead. Did you know? Caffeine intake dehydrates the skin making it difficult for the body to consume water. Minimize the level of caffeine intake and so will your water intake boost. Aerated drinks fasten the process of aging, leaving your skin with pre-mature fine line and wrinkles.
Yes ladies, we know sweets and desserts have magnets on them but you have to stop being attracted to them. Just for 6 months lessen your intake of sugar, maida (wheat flour) and milk chocolates. Intake of bad carbs leads to acne and zits which no woman would hanker, especially not at all when her wedding is around the corner. Keep lessening the intake of carbs as you age, for better health and less diseases.
Alcohol and Nicotine
Alcohol steals the collage from the skin making it dull and dry and we’re sure you don’t want to have a flaky, unpleasant skin before you tie the knot. Break up with this habit for not only 6 months but forever. Cigarette contains carbon monoxide that displaces oxygen levels in the skin leaving your skin moistureless and discolored. Smoking cigarette also empties nutrients like Vitamin C from the body that help in naturally protecting and repairing the skin.
