A healthy diet shows from the inside-out. Is your skin clear and glowing? Is your hair shiny and your nails strong and healthy? If not it is probably because your body is missing essential vitamins and nutrients.

~Follow these 6 tips and you should be "glowing" in no time.

1.) Drink plenty of water - At least eight glasses a day.

2.) Anti-Oxidant Rich Fruits and Veggies - Eat deep colored fruits and veggies, such as berries, plums, prunes and artichokes.

3.) Lean Proteins - Healthy hair and nails needs plenty of protein. Lean beef and egg whites are highly recommended.

4.) Complex Carbohydrates - Fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables, whole-grain breads, cereals and pastas. The vitamin C in citrus is necessary for the maintenance of collagen, which keeps hang nails at bay.

5.) Essential Fats - Plump healthy skin, without plump bodies! Foods rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, which make cell membranes strong. Try eating walnuts, extra virgin olive oil, flaxseed oil, mackerel, tuna and salmon.

6.)Low-Fat Dairy - Calcium builds strong nails and the vitamin A is super for the complexion. Try yogurt, low-fat milk and cottage cheese.

Natural radiance! :)
