Eat Your Way to a Healthier-Looking Scalp


Eat your way to a healthier-looking scalp

If you have dandruff, an antidandruff shampoo can help to clear up a flaky scalp.

Since dandruff is actually a skin condition, foods that support healthy-looking skin will also support a healthy-looking scalp. For a start, feed your skin a balanced diet that includes fruits, vegetables, and lean sources of protein, fibre-filled whole grains, and the right kinds of fats.

Focus on fitting a few key skin-health nutrients into your daily menu. Like biotin, a B vitamin that helps your body produce fat and to form skin and hair cells. It can be found in yummy foods like tomatoes, almonds, oats, eggs, and cucumbers. The mineral zinc is a skin-friendly nutrient because it supports the structure of your skin and can be gobbled up in savoury foods like liver, beef tenderloin, shrimp, and mushrooms, as well as in snack-worthy sesame and pumpkin seeds.

Also, be sure to minimize your consumption of saturated fats and to get most of your daily fat intake from better-for-you fats - monounsaturated fat, polyunsaturated fats, and omega-3 fatty acids. These fitter fats, found in foods like olive oil, fish, flaxseed, and soybeans, help to boost your skin's moisture levels and prevent drying.
