Many men and women believe that because your skin is external, the only way to take care of it is with external products. We buy hundreds of dollars worth of skin care (that doesn’t always give us the desired effect), and we neglect other ways we can achieve healthy skin.
Beauty starts from the inside out.
What we put into our bodies has just as much of an impact on our skin as what we put on it. If you want to achieve truly healthy skin, you need to eat right, drink lots of water to stay hydrated, and start a supplement regimen that can help your skin.
The goal of this blog post is to help you identify the absolute best fruits to be consuming so you can have beautiful, healthy skin!
Eating these 4 fruits can help you achieve healthy skin.
If you’re not one to carry a water bottle around to stay hydrated throughout the day, then you should turn to bananas. The high levels of potassium in bananas work to hydrate and moisturize your skin. Eating bananas regularly can help improve skin elasticity, and prevent premature aging and wrinkles so you’re left with healthy looking skin.
It’s commonly thought that the citrus fruits have the highest levels of vitamin C, but kiwis actually have more! The levels of vitamin C in kiwis will help to boost skin health to keep your skin looking young and fresh.
You’ve probably purchased a skin care product that contained papaya extracts in it. Papaya has a lot of vitamin A and other enzymes that make it great for your skin. This fruit can help you fight free radical damage from the particles in the air, and speed up cell regeneration to help you repair damaged skin faster. And the best part? If you don’t want to eat it, you can treat yourself to an at-home facial by mashing it up and applying directly to your face.
Lemons are known for their bleaching qualities when it comes to skin care. They can help to lighten up dark spots, and brighten the overall tone of your skin. If you suffer from breakouts, try drinking a warm cup of water with squeezed lemon each day to help lighten older scars and clear out any active blemishes.
If you’re looking for a natural way to achieve healthy skin, look no further than your pantry! These fruits tout amazing benefits for your skin so you can achieve that youthful glow we all crave.
