10 Ways Walnuts Make You Gorgeous

Walnuts, when removed from the shell, give the impression of a tiny looking exposed brain. Well,
maybe it is a sheer coincidence, but this dry fruit does boost your brains health. This nut is packed
with many benefits which can help to improve your beauty and health.
Walnuts are rich in antioxidants, which help in skin regeneration and elasticity. These antioxidants
boost collagen production and cell repair, thereby toning the skin and keeping the signs of ageing at
bay. Whether it is the fine lines, wrinkles or age spots, now you can kiss them goodbye by eating
walnuts or by applying walnut oil on your face every day.

Walnuts have chemical properties, which boost blood circulation, thus bringing oxygen and nutrients
to each and every cell. This circulation of blood helps the skin to glow with good health. Just 3-4
walnuts in a day, during snack time, will help your skin regain that healthy glow.

Walnut oil for skin infections
While the dry fruit is good for making the skin beautiful and lustrous, its oil has properties to treat
skin infections as well. Walnut oil is known for its antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties.
Athletes foot, Psoriasis and Candida like grave skin infections can be cured with the application of
walnut oil. In fact, mixing the oil with other natural antifungal ingredients like garlic will also speed
up the healing process.

Good skin texture
Apart from fighting signs of ageing and providing you with glowing skin, walnuts boost your skins
overall health. They are rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects your skin against sun damage.
Along with this, walnuts are a rich source of healthy omega-3 fats, which help in strengthening your
skin cells, locking moisture in your skin, and keeping the toxins out. Also, proteins in this nut boost
bone development and help in supporting collagen production in your body. So, add a few nuts in
