Sugar is not just the white stuff you add to your tea or coffee, but the corn flour, maida, pasta, white bread, most of the market bread, canned juices, sodas, iced teas, anything containing fructose corn syrup as its ingredient etc. While these are not that good for your body either, they tend to show off a bit more on your skin.
Apple Cider Vinegar with “Mother” nurtures our gut health by helping the good bacterias (probiotics) to grow and killing the bad bacterias. We have more bacterias (both good and bad) in our body than the number of cells. The more the good bacteria we will have, the less space/ chance we will have for the bad bacteria to grow and flourish.

Sunflower seeds contain linolenic, oleic and palmitic acid, which help in the formation of collagen and elastin, resulting in smooth skin. Consuming 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds also meets 90% of Vitamin E requirement of your body. Vitamin E maintains the colour (Melanin) of your skin and reduces acne.
You can also buy cream or serum with these acids to apply on your skin. Consuming these acids through sunflower seeds is definitely more nutritious since it gives you many more benefits- protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals. Plus roasted sunflower seed is a great snack too!!
