Do you want to be more gorgeous? Eat spinach!  Leafy greens are known for their beautifying proprieties because they are RICH in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and lots of good for you stuff :)! Make sure to eat them often if you want a more gorgeous and glowing complexion, sparkling eyes, and shiny hair!

Spinach is rich in C, E, B, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, lutein, and omega-3. Eating foods rich in antioxidants will help with collagen production which is needed to improve the skin’s appearance.  Lutein is responsible for making your eyes sparkle.
