here are the basics that will have you glowing from head to toe.
For Your Skin:
Omega 3s
Omega-3 fatty acids (the wonder class of nutrients, found in soybeans, nut oils and fish like salmon, that's been in the news for its heart benefits) are key to maintaining a soft and youthful skin texture

Lycopene, a caretonoid (or fat-soluble pigment) found in cooked tomatoes (think marina sauce and stewed tomatoes) is one of the best things you can eat to ensure pretty skin. This anti-oxidant ups your skin's natural sunscreen, protecting it from the sun from the inside and heading off signs of aging.

Vitamin C
You know this vitamin ups your immune system, but here's another reason to start your day off with some OJ (or bell peppers, grapefruit, strawberries, raspberries, or aparagus, all of which are high in the vitamin): It makes for some pretty skin, too. In fact, a 2007 study showed that women who eat a diet rich in C have fewer wrinkles and higher moisture levels than those with a similar lifestyle who do not.

For Your Nails and Hair:

Vitamin B
This energy vitamin, found in everything from carrots to romaine lettuce to cucumbers is widely regarded as the best nutrient for your hair and skin.
For instance, several studies have found that the B vitamin biotin boosts your body's production of keratin, the protein that makes up your skin and hair. And in a 2001 study, women who had alopecia (a condition that causes hair loss) actually saw an improvement in the quality of their hair after taking vitamin B6 for several weeks, making for stronger, shinier locks. And now researchers also believe it has the same reinforcing benefits for your nails.

This element found in meats, fish, poultry, eggs, milk, and legumes onions, garlic, cabbage is essential to maintaining beautiful nails that hold up to cracking, chipping and peeling.
