Best Summer Foods for Beauty

Fresh fruits and vegetablesSummer is the season of fresh, delicious fruits and you definitely need to make use of them, as many of the foods that nature gives you during the precious summer days have a wonderful effect on your beauty. The best thing about a healthy summer diet is the fact that it is not only extremely good for you, it is also delicious.

All fresh fruits and vegetables have a positive effect on your overall health. Today, we will tell you about the ones you should eat to make sure you look truly radiant with glowing flawless skin and strong shiny hair.

  • Strawberries.
    This is the best source of vitamin C you can find. Strawberries may not have the highest content of this particular nutrient, but they are definitely the most delicious way to get the precious antioxidant into your system. Vitamin C is one of the most potent weapons you have in your fight against the visible signs of aging.
  • Zucchini.
    Low on calories and tasty, is there any better kind of food? There are dozens of recipes that you can use to make some truly magical zucchini dishes. They will provide you with healthy dietary fiber, which means that your waistline won’t be compromised by indulging in these foods.
  • Bell peppers.
    Few people know that bell peppers are one of the healthiest foods out there. They’re exceptionally rich in antioxidants, and especially vitamin C. The special thing about bell peppers is that the vitamin C they contain remains intact even after cooking, so you can actually get some positive effect from them even if you don’t eat bell peppers fresh. As this kind of pepper is also packed with healthy fiber, it is quite filling and will be a great addition to any diet program.
  • Tomatoes.
    Strange as this may sound, tomatoes are like a natural sunscreen. They contain beta-carotene and lycopene. Both these nutrients naturally boost your ability to withstand the damage of UV rays. Therefore, they help keep your skin beautiful and free of wrinkles.
  • Hibiscus.
    Note that the positive effects of hibiscus don’t mean that you should start chewing on the beautiful flowers. However, some hibiscus tea definitely needs to be added to your diet. This drink is refreshing and doesn’t possess any of the negative qualities associated with tea and coffee. It can be the best source of hydration for you during the summer heat, because it’s much more useful and tastier than plain water. Hibiscus tea is rich in potent antioxidants and can curb your thirst quickly.
  • Watermelon.
    Do you like popsicles? Summer isn’t the same without them, but they can hardly be considered a healthy food. However, you have a chance to enjoy a delicious popsicle without any of the risk to your health and beauty presented by sugar and other chemicals contained in the ones you can buy from a store. Slice some watermelon and put the pieces in the freezer for a few hours. Now you have delicious and healthy popsicles that are also a great source of dietary fiber and will keep you hydrated and happy.
  • Peaches.
    Apart from being incredibly delicious, peaches also have a most positive effect on your beauty. They are a great source of vitamins C and A, which means that a peach is a natural anti-aging product you can truly enjoy.
  • Raspberries.
    All berries are rich in vitamins (especially vitamin C) and low in calories. Raspberries stand out during the summer season because this is the time when they are most delicious. Ripe soft berries warmed by the sun are very special, but they can’t be stored for long and many of their precious vitamins will be destroyed in the process of cooking, so it’s best to eat them fresh.
