This year I will be sharing many tips on living a healthier lifestyle. Glowing soft skin, hair and nails, higher energy, lower stress, and a better longer quality of life is achieved by feeding your body good natural foods from the earth. Dieting is great and all but if you are missing out on eating essential life saving nutritious fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, nuts, seeds,and grains, you will be skinny but dull as well. It is all about what you put in your body, not avoid. I am in Brasil so I am going to start with the abundance of delicious tropical fruits she has to offer.
Bite into a fragrant yummy Guava and your skin will start to feel toned, refreshed, and wrinkle free. Your body will also thank you, and here is why:
Guavas are so good for body! When your body functions right, your metabolism soars as you lose weight. Guavas contains the mineral folate, which helps promote fertility. Guava has vitamin A, B & C (helps protect your cells). Guavas are full of fiber, we all know how that helps us digest, and clean out our system. Lower blood sugar levels, another plus. It also regulates blood pressure with its high potassium content. Guava is also rich in retinol, so it helps your pretty eyes stay sharp. Guavas contain the trace element copper for a good functioning thyroid gland, so important for a healthy slim body.

Guavas are excellent for beautiful glowing skin. They are composed of mostly water, which we all know hydrates your skin. If you are not getting your 8 glasses a day your aging yourself, dry like the desert.You can also make a mask or scrub out of it for an even complexion by removing your dead cells. A guava provides about 2.9 grams of lycopene so it protects you from sun damage and harmful UV rays. Needless to say this helps your skin from premature aging. Scrubbing your face with Guava is effective in enhancing skin texture, tightening the loosened skin and reviving the lost elasticity. The astringent qualities of guavas keep your skin free from blemishes, acne, wrinkles and pimples.
