A NEW BEAUTY SECRET: ORANGE JUICE!
A daily glass of orange juice can help improve your skin, hair and nails, say a panel of health and beauty experts. They attribute the benefits to the vitamin C Potassium and folic acid it contains. Vitamin C is essential to the production of collagen, along with super nutrient lutein.
Its yellow pigment is linked to reducing sun-induced skin damage and is believed to improve the elasticity of the skin.
A 200 ml glass of orange typically contains 60 mg vitamin C, which is equal to 100 per cent of an adult’s recommended daily amount.
Nutritionist Amanda Ursell was quoted as saying, Beauty experts are starting to see the benefits of a glass of this nutrient-packed product, realizing it isn’t just about what you put on your body, but what you put into it too.
The research was undertaken with 200 beauty industry workers who are members of CEW (Cosmetic Executive Women). Two-thirds of beauty professionals (65 per cent) said they recommend clients drink a glass a day as part of their current beauty routine. Susan Mahy, board director at Cosmetic Executive Women UK, said.
The essential nutrients you need for healthy skin, hair and nails are most beneficial when ingested as part of your diet. Our panel of executive women in the cosmetic, fragrance and hairdressing industries concluded that they have a direct effect on the skin.
Certainly from the above news, I have learnt that creams and lotions are not only important for glowing skin, but intake of required nutrients is also must.
From this Monday I have started my orange juice intake routine.
So what about you!!!!!!!
