Fruit: your body needs it…especially your skin.
Science has confirmed that diet has a lot to do with our body’s health from the inside out. That’s good news since the vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural compounds in nutritious foods provide everything we need to function (and look) our best.
Best Fruits for the Skin
These are five of the best fruits to eat for healthy, glowing skin.
An apple a day may not only keep the doctor away, it can also promote healthy, younger, firmer skin. Apples are rich in malic acid, and this is a natural substance that is found in many beauty products. In fact, the acid in apples is known also known as alpha hydroxyl acid, which is found in many acne-fighting serums and cleansers.
All the hype about avocados is for good reason. It truly is a SUPER food. It contains biotin, which promotes cell regeneration and growth. It can speed up the growth of hair and nails, and also protect the skin from toxins that can lead to age-related skin effects.
Potassium-rich bananas naturally increase the moisture in your skin. This helps the skin stay firm, supple, and youthful looking.
What’s good to know is that eating bananas isn’t the only way to reap the benefits of this skin-healthy fruit. You can also use it in a mask to help prevent premature aging and wrinkles, and to fade dark spots.
This fuzzy fruit doesn’t get enough credit, but it really does pack a lot of nutrients into its small size. What many people don’t know is that it contains more vitamin C than an orange! This, of course, not only helps you build up your immune system to fight colds, but it also keeps skin looking fresh and young.
Don’t have time to exfoliate? Incorporate pineapple into your diet. Yes, it’s true. Natural bromelain is found in pineapple, which can help your skin exfoliate itself. It’s just like when you were in your teens and early 20s and your face naturally exfoliated itself to reveal fresh, glowing skin.
The other great effect of pineapple is that it neutralizes free-radical damage. This can help keep skin hydrated and soft.
