As I have said before, maintaining your looks is not all about lotions and potions . . eating healthy nutritious food really does an amazing difference . . although I also love using certain foods as beauty producs as well!
You will find lots of inforation on the internet, the sky's the limit. . so I'm only naming some to give you an idea..
Let's start with something very basic . . lemon. Start your day with a cup of hot water and juce of half a lemon or so to kick start your metabolism and cleanse. To further rev up your metabolism, add a pinch of ground cinnamon and a pinch of ground ginger. Don't forget girls, that lemon is high in vitamin C content, which is used in the formation of collagen, which is essential for hair growth ! The vitamin also enables the body to absorb iron more efficiently, which is responsable for getting oxygen to the tissues of the body . . without it, your hair won't grow . . . start munching more on foods with vitamin C !!!
