Eat Your Way to Fabulous Skin
There’s no easier and more delicious way to beautiful skin than by eating your way to it. It’s as if the produce section is full of skin care products that you can eat. Since it’s fall, and different fruits are abundantly found, we decided to list the top fruits you should be eating for your most gorgeous skin.
Anything But Basic: Apples and bananas can certainly keep aging skin away! Apples have lots of Vitamin C, which keeps your skin firm and dewy. They also prevent free radicals from damaging skin. Have acne? Eat apples for their pectin content, which helps clear up acne. And bananas contain natural emollients and complex proteins to smooth and moisturize your skin from the inside out.
Berry Good: If you love berries, berries will love your skin with abundant vitamins and minerals. Snack on strawberries, cranberries, and blueberries instead of processed snacks, and your skin will thank you in the form of dewiness and plumpness. The antioxidants in these berries are known for rejuvenating skin, improving dullness and minimizing pores. You can also try bilberries which are grown in Europe and resemble blueberries. Bilberries are not as common here in the U.S. but still provide similar benefits to the other berries.
Lemony Snicket: Adding regular citrus fruits to your diet can almost guarantee clear skin due to antibacterial properties of citric acid. Also rich in vitamin C, citrus fruits boost natural collagen production (since it diminishes as we get older) to keep skin firm and plump. Choose citrus fruits such as oranges, mandarins, or lemons.
Tropical Vacation: Take a tropical vacation from the convenience of your own kitchen by stocking it with guava, pineapple, papaya, kiwi, and other tropical fruits. They also contain Vitamin C to protect your skin against damaging free radicals. Vitamin C also helps your body produce collagen, keeping your skin firm and elastic, and who doesn’t want that?
