Skipping Breakfast

Vegetables are a great source of minerals, essential nutrients and fiber. They help flush out toxins and free radicals from your body leaving you rejuvenated and glowing.

Not Drinking Enough Water

Insufficient intake of water leads to severe dehydration. Experts advice that an adult should aim at consuming eight to ten glasses of water each day. Water regulates the body temperature, helps flush out the toxins, improves digestion and rejuvenates the skin.

Smoking Cigarettes

Smoking increases the risks of lung, throat and breast cancers as well as other dreadful conditions. Quitting smoking will not only reduce the risks of these diseases, it will also improve your look.

Eating Heavy Fried and Junk Foods

Junk/fast foods are full of fats, oils and sugar. All these can cause high cholesterol, gall bladder or kidney stones, hypertension, high blood sugar and obesity. Aim to take a well balanced, home cooked meal instead.
