I am MULTI-TASKER. Like to the freaking max. There’s just so much I want to do- right now 🙂 I answer emails while on the treadmill, I catch up on social media while I walk the dog, I even make the bed while I am still laying in it. I just love anything that saves time and maximizes efficiency. Except for two-in-one shampoo & conditioner.
That’s just weird.
Gotta draw the line somewhere, ya know?
My favorite thing to multi-task is my beauty regimes. If I can get prettier while I sleep (I’ve been known to wear a sheet mask to bed) or while I EAT, I’m IN.
If you follow me over on IG you may have noticed I am always trying to add my beloved collagen supplements to smoothies, soups and salad dressings bc why not be full and less wrinkly by lunch?!
SO if you’re fully tracking with me and you’re a multi-tasker yourself, grab a pen and paper and make your grocery list while you read more on the-
Best foods to eat for better hair, skin and nails.
Dried Apricots are LOADED with Vitamin A. I learned in esthetician school that Vitamin A converts to Retinol in the body which is a scavenger for free radicals. Its like wrinkle cream for your insides! If you don’t mind a little natural sugars, 1 cup of dried apricots are low cal and fat-free so eat those golden dried-up babies so you don’t look like a golden dried-up baby!
Walnuts contain large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E that help your skin stay smooth and plump. Grab a handful of raw walnuts or add some chopped to your salad to protect your hair from sun damage and keep it lustrous and shiny.
Eggs are my secret weapon for hair growth. Eggs yolks in particular are loaded with Biotin, Vitamin B-12 and essential fatty acids that help your hair maintain moisture and GROW. Seriously, if you look at all the hair growth vitamins out there- its all about the Biotin! My Fav? two hard boiled eggs with a little S & P please 🙂
Avocados are known as the ultimate “get gorgeous” food. They have it all, folic acid, monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamins C,E,K and plenty of potassium. No wonder avocados are common ingredients in hydrating hair and face masks. When eaten they even help lower bad cholesterol levels so yes- Guac really is so extra.
Spinach is a triple threat of wrinkle-fighting antioxidants: vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene. If you’ve got sun damage spinach is your new BFF. The three antioxidants in Spinach work together to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Give your everyday SPF a boost by adding a handful of spinach to your smoothies or replace romaine lettuce with spinach in your salads.
Berries are like tiny little miracle workers from heaven. They are small but mighty anti-inflammatory agents and are packed with vitamin C which help your skin stay firm and strong. Vitamin C or ascorbic acid is a building block of collagen so just go on ahead and eat those blueberries till you turn violet, Violet!
Tumeric is Colin’s favorite from this list. Turns out Turmeric is ultra healing and helps prevent hair loss. Ever since I told him this one day as he was snaking the hair clogged drain he’s been serving me a lot more Tumeric tea at night. 🙂 If you struggle with dandruff or a receding hair line all you gotta do is sprinkle a little turmeric seasoning on chicken, add some to your soup broths or sip on turmeric tea like me and you’ll see a healthier scalp in no time.
lastly.. Chocolate. Dark Chocolate or better yet- raw Cacao has antioxidants that the fight free radicals that prematurely ages us. But mostly, I think Chocolate just makes you happy. And happy people are the prettiest people. So go on, eat your chocolate and smile.. thats when you truly look your best.
