Beat your biggest beauty challenges with these tasty, healthy snacks.
FOR: Pearly Whites
EAT: 1 cup low-fat yogurt. It offers half your daily need of enamel-building calcium and has tooth-strengthening phosphorous, says Lisa Drayer, RD, author of The Beauty Diet.
FOR: Fewer Wrinkles
EAT: 1 cup kiwi. It has more wrinkle-fighting vitamin C than a cup of orange segments -- 220 percent of your daily value, says Allison Tannis, author of Feed Your Skin, Starve Your Wrinkles.
FOR: Soft Skin
EAT: 1 cup baked sweet potatoes. Its hue comes from beta-carotene (it has about as much as a carrot), which is converted into skin-softening vitamin A in the body, Tannis says.
FOR: Glossy Hair
EAT: 1/4 cup walnuts. These nuts are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which keep the scalp flake-free, as well as copper, a mineral that naturally helps strands shine, says Drayer.
FOR: A Dewy Glow
EAT: 1 cup hot cocoa. Sip this to get twice the amount of antioxidant flavanols as you would from a glass of red wine, Drayer says. They increase blood flow to the skin for added radiance.
