Beauty from Within

Though the spiritual side plays an essential role in our lives this is not about that: giving enough attention to the inside of your body can only result in an attractive appearance. No cosmetic treatment will have any real chances of success unless we provide the body with necessary vitamins and minerals intake. A beautiful young skin requires vitamin A, C and zinc. Vitamin A is found mainly in red and yellow fruits and vegetables (apricots, melons, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, etc.) and to reach your normal zinc levels consume whole grains, nuts and seeds, eggs and shellfish. Vitamin C is easily destroyed by cooking or storage, so a supplement might come in handy. As a tip, we suggest you start each day by drinking a glass of water in which you have added the juice from a lemon.
