Cosmetology Foods Improve Health and Looks

Cosmetology foods can have an impact on your daily life.  What you eat or do not eat can affect how you feel and how you look.  There are several foods, known as cosmetology foods, that bring more balance to the body and can make you look and feel better.  By making you look better, these foods can also increase your self-esteem and confidence.

Cucumbers

Cucumbers are 98 percent water, making them low in calories and also great for hydration.  Your body will look and feel better when it is well-hydrated.  It also is rich in vitamin b12, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, phosphorus, and iron.  All of these nutrients are important for health and vitality, as well as looking good.  Traditional Chinese medicine considers cucumber to be a cold food, and therefore it should not be consumed during an illness.

Lotus Root

Lotus root is beneficial for detoxifying the body and getting rid of excess fluids.  It is said to contribute to healthy kidneys and nourish Qi and blood.  It is especially beneficial for those with dry skin.

Carrots

Carrots have fiber, and therefore help with constipation.  They also contain the vital nutrient beta-carotene, which can also help detoxify the body.  Carrots are said to help people who are up late into the night.

Beans

Mungbeans have a fresh flavor and in Chinese tradition are said to help clear away heat.  This property makes them good to consume during the hot summer months.  The red bean is also good for constipation due to its fiber content.  It is also said to help with respiratory illness and improve energy and physical strength.
