Yoghurt

Is your tanned skin making you worry about your wedding look, as the ceremony is just a month away? Well, do not worry! Just revive that dull skin with yoghurt. Applying yoghurt on your face can help you to moisturise your skin and get rid of that tan. It can lighten your skin tone as well, thanks to its bleaching properties. Also, this super food has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that can fight your acne problems.

Spinach

Well, till now we had just heard that spinach is good for the eyesight. But, little did we know that this leafy vegetable also gives your skin a radiant glow. It is full of iron and vitamin C, both of which are essential for the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that gives our skin its elasticity, keeping it youthful and glowing. Eating spinach also prevents the occurrence of wrinkles, and reduces the under eye dark circles.

Bananas

Banana is a great fruit that aid in anti-ageing process. The significant amount of vitamin C and B6 in it helps in retaining the elasticity of the skin, thereby keeping it wrinkle-free. Also, banana has 75 per cent water content, which keeps the skin hydrated and prevents it from peeling. Moreover, this fruit helps in reducing the puffiness from the face and under the eyes. Applying it as a face pack can also lighten your skin tone, making you look much fairer. 

Avocados

Avocados have moisturising properties in them. They contain healthy fats that can make you look beautiful on your D-day. The antioxidants in them detoxify your body giving you a youthful blush. Just rub some avocado pulp onto your skin regularly. This will make your skin soft and will give it a radiant glow. It will also relieve redness, dryness and itching if any. Besides this, its glutamine amino acid cures the skin damaged due to sun and dust.

Oysters

Well, for all those non-vegetarians out there, we have a piece of news for you as well. Consuming oysters gives your skin all the essential nutrients it needs for that wedding glow. Oysters are rich in zinc, which helps in fighting sagging skin, thereby giving you a younger look.

Fish

Another treat for non-vegetarians, fish adds lustre and softness to your skin. So, feasting on it can actually enhance your complexion. It contains omega-3 fatty acids, which nourish the skin by decreasing clogged pores, reducing skin inflammation, and averting fine lines and wrinkles. Moreover, fish can reduce peeling of skin, occurrence of acne, and can protect from sunburns as well.

Chocolates

The flavonols present in chocolates have amazing results on the skin. But, make sure you savour only the dark and bitter ones. The sweeter chocolates are really high in calories. Dark chocolates especially help in reducing stress hormones, maintaining blood pressure levels and minimising the appearance of wrinkles, all three of which are important for a bride-to-be.
So, what are you waiting for? Include these super foods in your daily routine, and put your best face forward on your wedding day!
