Seasonal fruits are nature's gift to man. The sweet pulp is loaded with flavourful juices that burst in our mouths, making us smile! Apart from heavenly taste, fruits come with a bucket full of health benefits including glowing skin.
Fruits are especially good for our skin, it is why many skincare products include various fruit extracts. If you are someone who thinks that the only way to improve your skin is by applying fruit-infused products, then you are wrong. One can also enjoy the multifaceted benefits of fruits for the skin by simply eating them!
Here are some fruits you can eat to rejuvenate your skin-
Pomegranates are high in antioxidants that help in fighting free radical damage to the skin. The Vitamin C in pomegranate helps in recovering dry skin and treats sun damage.
This is one fruit that’s abundantly available in India all through the year. We know it’s a good source of iron, magnesium and potassium and helps reduce menstrual cramps. The effect of bananas on the skin too cannot be ignored. Bananas are rich in vitamin A, B and E and hence works as an anti-ageing agent. A fresh mashed banana facial can do wonders for your skin.
Oranges are a rich source of Vitamin C. Vitamin C improves skin texture. Like apple, orange too contains collagen that slows the skin ageing process. Rub the insides of orange on your skin to tighten the skin. Oranges can be dried and powdered and used as a natural scrub. Like lemon, oranges too help clear skin blemishes.
The benefits of this fruit on the skin have perhaps been talked about since the time of our ancestors. Papaya is rich in antioxidants and contains a special enzyme called papain that can kill dead cells and cure skin impurities. A glass of papaya milk or just applying the flesh of papaya on your skin can do wonders to your skin.
Not only is avocado delicious, but it’s also good for your skin! This green fruit contains minerals and healthy fats that are good for our skin. Not only that, it’s a good source of vitamins C and E known to heal and protect the skin.
