Default TOP 20 Foods for 'forever beauty'!

Beauty is not only about good features, or a toned body. It's the whole package -- thick, lustrous hair; soft, supple and blemish-free skin; baby-pink nails; and a perfect set of pearly teeth all contribute towards enrolling you in the 'beautiful' list.


And what you eat goes a long way in achieving all of the above. Certain foods help stimulate DNA repair, improve your blood circulation, and increase collagen production, giving your skin a supple and youthful look and feel. All food groups have their contribution to make in terms of beauty and health.


In the following pages, we bring you a list of 20 that will set you on the path to natural beauty!
