Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, but what is most important is that beauty comes from the inside. Your overall health and your lifestyle have a huge impact on the way you look. This is most noticeable when it comes to the largest organ in our systems – our skin.
Having healthy-looking, glowing skin is an ideal that sometimes seems difficult to achieve. A perfect skincare routine is not enough. The true glow comes from being healthy, and may we add, being happy and comfortable in your own skin.
This post should help you on your way to glowy and healthier skin by showing you how your diet can impact skin quality. Read on to find out which fruits should become your skin’s best friends and why.
Oranges and other citruses are very rich in vitamin C which is proven to help with premature aging signs. Vitamin C also improves the overall look and radiance of your skin. It helps reduce wrinkles and discoloration or hyperpigmentation.
Besides being one of the most popular skin serum ingredients, vitamin C is also great for your immune system. The beauty industry offers so many types of chemical peels which are in fact based on alpha hydroxy acids produced by fruits.
Oranges are delicious, juicy, and pretty adaptable for consummation. You decide how you want to take your daily dose of freshness. Oranges can be eaten as a snack, with your breakfast, or as freshly squeezed juice.
Bonus tip: they are very good in salads! Try to add some to your favorite salad combo and enjoy.
Seems like we have finally agreed on the fact that the tomato is in fact a fruit. Tomatoes are also rich in vitamins, especially vitamins A and C. The antioxidants found in tomatoes are said to help skin damage, precisely sunburn damage, and similar situations.
Any salad is a great base for tomatoes, so it is fairly easy to get them into your system. Cold-pressed juice also works wonders. Pasta sauces based on tomatoes can be yummy, but it is probably best to eat them raw, as the heat from cooking destabilizes vitamin C.
If you really dislike the taste, we have another idea. Tomatoes are also new favorites in the beauty industry in form of face masks, so you can try to make your own tomato masks at home.
Everyone’s favorite summer snack is another great addition to our fruit list. Do not be fooled by the fact that over 90% of the watermelon fruit is in fact water. These red babies are extremely rich in vitamins and minerals, and plus, all that water is extremely good for your skin.
Watermelons will keep your skin fresh and hydrated. Vitamins B1, B6, A, and C, plus Lycopene that are contained in these juicy fruits, are amazing for improving your skin quality and reducing minor issues.
One thing we have to mention is that if you doubt you have a skin condition of any sort, we friendly suggest you contact your dermatologist.
The popularity of this wonderful fruit is constantly on the rise. Everyone seems to love avocados nowadays. And there are plenty of reasons for that. This brilliant fruit contains a lot of good fats that are great for our health in general.
Skin is also a fan of these nice healthy fats, so by munching on avocados you will nurture your whole body, and of course, your skin as well. Avocado also contains vitamins E and C which can heal and protect your skin.
There are so many recipes with avocados online, so you can really experiment with flavors and find something that works for you. The key is to master the avocado-picking technique, so you will be able to get perfectly ripe ones each and every time.
Homemade avocado face masks are great as well, but we suggest including them in your diet for multiple health benefits.
