5 fruits that work wonders for your skin

 

 

We all know fruits are good for your health, but some of those healthy snack options can also get you glowing skin. Add these five fruits to your grocery cart for an extra skincare boost that’ll take you from fresh-faced to a gorgeous glow. 

 

Avocado

This tropical green fruit is an awesome source of vitamin C, which fights skin inflammation and irritation. It also has a good source of vitamin E to give you that healthy glow and extend the life of your skin. Another added bonus to consider when eating an avocado is the oils in the fruit, which improve your skin’s ability to stay moisturized, making the overall texture and tone of your skin amazing.

 

Acai

If you didn’t know, antioxidants are the best thing for your skin, and these tiny purple fruits are one of the most powerful forms of antioxidants in the world! Acai helps to eliminate toxins and any bad stuff in your body. Since fresh acai can be hard to get a hold of, try checking out your local grocery store for the acai in juice or tablet form (all natural, of course).

 

Blackberries

Jam-packed with antioxidants that will help clear up your skin, this dark fruit gives you all the vitamin A and C you need to have naturally beautiful and healthy skin. Another added bonus of eating blackberries on regular basis: it’ll help protect your skin from damaging UVA rays from the hot summer sun.

 

Pineapple

Vitamin C is a super powerful antioxidant naturally found in the skin, so eating tropical fruits rich in the vitamin, like pineapple, can replenish your skin. Vitamin C also helps your body produce collagen, a protein that helps keep your skin firm and elastic, which is great for the summer months when you are soaking up that sun!

 

Red Grapes

If you have really dry skin or an inflammatory skin condition, like psoriasis or eczema, red grapes should be your go-to fruit. It’s believed that red grapes (and their seeds) contain super strong and natural antioxidants and chemicals that can help treat common skin conditions. Since they have natural antihistamines, red grapes can also help to control the side affects of yucky allergic reactions. Toss them in a chicken salad or nom on them as a summer snack to get their potential benefits.

To make sure a fitted button down is the right size for you, check out the shoulder seams. If they hit right at the point where the slope of your shoulder begins, then you're good!
