TOP Beauty Foods which are enjoyable and easily available in Singapore

Top Beauty Foods

We like to eat well and look good. Eating well in Singapore is not a problem. Becoming more beautiful by eating tasty food is the challenge. Sometimes the top beauty foods and healthy foods recommended are either tasteless or they look like food for cows or Martians. Some superfoods reputed to be good for skin health are so exotic that by the time we find them we would have added a few more lines to our faces. We set out to discover beauty foods that we find enjoyable and easily available in restaurants and cafes in Singapore. So we now have The Ordinary Patrons’ list of favorite beauty foods which are easily available in Singapore.

Most of the information here about the nutrients found in food and their effects on skin health are derived from the resources and articles found on the website of the National Health Promotion Board and the publication Micronutrients and Skin Health by Linus Pauling Institute of the Oregon State University.

So here is the TOP beauty foods and where we found them in Singapore.

Lowercase @ LASALLE

After watching the recent Star Awards 2015 and the news conference on the World of Georgette Chen documentary drama, one is left with the unmistakable conclusion that Rui En is one of our most popular and talented actresses.  So it set us thinking, if we have the opportunity to go on a date with Rui En, what are the places we would take her on a date in Singapore? Granted, the odds of this happening in real life are probably the same as us winning the Chinese New Year super Toto top prize.  But as they say, we must think big right?
