Fruits that improve skin texture and health
Strawberries- Contains an incredible amount of health boosting vitamins and minerals. Strawberries also contain antioxidants which help to neutralize the free radicals in your body. Some studies have ranked strawberries as the fruit containing the highest amount of antioxidants with plums ranking just below.
Papaya- Contains antioxidants as well as a special enzyme called papain that can kill dead cells and help with skin impurities. Consume or apply the the flesh of papaya to your skin.
Banana- Rich in vitamin A, B and E, bananas work well as an anti aging agent.
Lemon (or citrus fruits such as orange or grapefruit)- Contains high levels of Vitamin C which is responsible for collagen formation. Collagen directly correlates with your skin’s elasticity so consuming more Vitamin C will help with sagging skin and wrinkles.
Apple- ”An apple a day, keeps the doctor away.” It’s true, apples’ antioxidant properties help with cell and tissue damage and flavanoids, a type of antioxidant found in apples, also prevent heart disease and stroke. Quercetin present in the skin of apples is a powerful antioxidant, a natural anti-histamine, and anti-inflammatory.
