Beauty From the Fridge
Your best beauty secret may be hidden in your kitchen! Looking great is as easy as reaching for the right nutrients. Get gorgeous with these beauty-boosting foods:

Almonds: Rich in vitamin E, fatty acids, and the antioxidant selenium, this crunchy snack can lead to smooth, supple, younger-looking skin. Just watch your portion sizes — almonds weigh in at about 160 calories per ounce (a small handful)!

Protein: If you've been avoiding meat to cut back on fat, you're missing out on all the great things meat protein has to offer! On the beauty front, protein is key in building strong hair and nails. Aside from red meat, there are lots of lean options that will keep your metabolism fueled and your belly full, such as skinless, boneless chicken breast, lean turkey, and tuna.

Dairy: You've probably heard that including low-fat dairy in your diet can help burn belly fat. But did you know that it also promotes shinier, silkier hair? It's true — dairy is packed with vitamin B, which is the key to a magnificent mane. So grab that glass of milk, and toast to looking great! (If you have trouble digesting dairy, other great sources of B include poultry, eggs, and leafy greens.)
