Two servings of fruit are undoubtedly a great way to add extra nutrition and make your diet healthier. Here are some fruits that have an extra benefit of keeping your skin radiant and healthy!
Berries – Strawberry, blueberries, blackberries and so on… They’re small and hence perfect for an afternoon snack when you’re feeling peckish. You’ll benefit from the antioxidants found in them! Not only do antioxidants protect your body from free radical damage (usually from pollutants in the air and radiation), but they boost your skin’s health. Firstly, they are able to boost your skin’s protection from external damage like sun damage. Next, by reducing free radical damage, antioxidants help in the healing process of the skin!
Oranges are a no-brainer because they are characterised as a good source of Vitamin C, which as anti-oxidant and anti-aging effects with sufficient intake. Find out more about how Vitamin C can affect and improve our skin in our post here!
While some may find dragonfruit a little bland, you may want to eat some of the pinkish fruit after you know the following: they’re high in antioxidants, a source of Vitamin C, both of which are good for the skin. In addition to this, including dragonfruit as part of a healthy lifestyle can improve heart health because of the monosaturated fats they contain.
Avocado face masks are a common product we can find on the market today. Why? Because avocados contain moisturizing properties that can help you build and retain moisture! This can help you if you’re looking to keep your skin healthy and firm. Adding on to that, avocados can also give your body a boost in antioxidants.
Above all, do remember that fruits are a great alternative to salty snacks like chips and artificially sweetened chocolates and candies. This is not to say that we should cut off all indulgence in our lives… it’s perfectly fine to give yourself a treat once in awhile! Balance out the food you’re feeding yourselves and adjust your lifestyle to bring out the best in you!
