A reminder, ‘you are what you eat!’. Many people forget this statement and think taking care of the body externally is what truly matters. What you eat really reflects on the outside, that’s why some people are still battling with acne and not trying to find out if it has to do with their diet. Diet matters in a lot of things especially skin care. And today, we’ll be focusing on five fruits for a glowing skin. Read on to know them..
PAPAYA. Papaya extracts are widely used in the skin care industry in the form of facial peels, soaps, cleansers, and lotions. But why go after chemical treatments when you can enjoy the goodness of papaya, fresh and cheap! Eat papaya regularly. You can also mash it and apply to skin for a youthful bright glow.
APPLES. Apples are the richest source of malic acid. Malic acid promotes healthier, firmer and youthful looking skin by renewing skin cells without damaging the skin layer. If that’s not enough to convince you that an apple a day leads to glowing skin from within, consider the high fibre content in apples. Fibre helps to clean out the colon and promotes regular bowel movements, hence promoting clear pimple-free skin.
BANANAS. Bananas contain high levels of potassium, which helps moisturizes and hydrates the skin, making it look fuller, more supple, and youthful. The nutrients in bananas work to maintain the elasticity of skin, moisturise, prevent premature aging and wrinkles, soften and rejuvenate, and fade dark spots and blemishes.
PINEAPPLE. Pineapple contains a large content of natural bromelain, an anti-inflammatory enzyme, which is used widely for its numerous health benefits. This enzyme has special benefits for skin as a gentle exfoliant. Use pineapple juice or pulp topically to help clear off dead skin and reveal beautiful, glowing skin. Pineapple hydrates and softens skin from the inside out and lightens blemishes, resulting in clearer-looking skin.
AVOCADO. Avocado had to grace this list. It has so many amazing benefits for the skin plus it’s an anti-aging fruit. Avocados also contain Vitamin E, known as “the Protector of Skin”. The fatty acids in this naturally fatty fruit help to provide skin with essential lubrications which promotes youthful, glowing skin.
After reading all these, I’d expect you to go get these fruits and start munching! Glowing skin all the way!
