Pale skin and nails are usually a sign of lack of iron in your diet. The deficiency of iron leads to a condition called anaemia. In India, nearly eight out of ten women suffer from various degrees of anaemia.
Eat foods rich in iron :
1) Green leafy vegetables - spinach
2) Cereal, grains, millets especially bajra and ragi are good sources of iron.
3) Eggs and liver are also good sources if you are a non-vegetarian.
Vitamin C helps in the absorption of iron, so eat some citrus fruits like orange, sweet lime or sprouts.
