Eat Pretty

When it comes to having healthy hair, skin and nails, you may be surprised to find that you don't have to rush off for a haircut, facial or manicure to keep up appearances. From coconut as your hair hero to skin saving salads, Scottish Slimmers are here to share the latest and greatest beauty benefits of your favourite fruits and Check-friendly basket bargains.
Lemons for brighter skin
Rich in vitamin C and citric acid, lemons can act as a fantastic skin brightener. You can reap the benefits of skin brightening by squeezing lemon juice on a cloth and using it as a toner or you could drink it with some warm water in place of a tea or coffee (as a great alternative to caffeine!)
Water for blemish free, hydrated skin
Drinking your recommended daily intake of water can not only help you cut down on Checks but it will also work wonders for your skin. Keeping your skin hydrated is one of the greatest things you can do to combat wrinkles, dark circles, patchy redness and even stave off severe skin conditions such as acne.
Coconut for luscious locks
Apply coconut oil all over clean wet hair and use it as a hair mask to promote healthy hair growth. It is particularly effective at thickening fine hair and adding shine to limp, lifeless locks.
Yoghurt for strong teeth and nails
It is recommended that you consume a 0% fat Greek-Style yoghurt, but as well as the gut-friendly snacking benefits it provides, yoghurt can also help maintain strong, healthy teeth and promote nail growth. There is no need to rush off for an expensive whitening treatment or ruin your natural nails with acrylics.
