The Top 5 Fruits for a Healthy Outside, Starts With a Healthy Inside

Because a healthy outside starts with a healthy inside.

For healthy, glowing skin, the old saying, “you are what you eat” still remains
true. Choosing the right thing to eat can help you nourish your skin from the
inside out.
Our bodies are truly magnificent. Old cells are always being shed and replenished by younger ones. To support this constant change, we need to feed our bodies with nutrients. If we eat a good balance of nutrient-rich foods, our skin will receive the vital nutrients it needs to be healthy and beautiful.

 

It’s important to treat your skin with kindness and optimize your nutrition by enjoying antioxidant-rich fruits that provide the optimum levels of nutrients that are crucial for radiant skin, including beta carotene, vitamins C and E, zinc and selenium.

 

With that in mind, here are the top 5 fruits that will help you eat your way to healthy skin.

Blueberries

Did you know that Vitamin C is a super antioxidant? It works to effectively support the

immune system and encourage radiant, smooth skin. One of the best sources of

Vitamin C is blueberries. They’re also rich in anti-oxidants, which helps to keep skin healthy and produces collagen that strengthens the skin’s capillaries.

Oranges

Don’t throw away the peel! Researchers from the University of Arizona studied a group of people who consumed citrus fruits, juices, and peels every week. The people who ate orange peels instead of discarding them had a 33% increase in skin  health. Orange peels also offer protective UV-benefits to keep your skin strong and well.

Kiwi

Small but packs a big nutritional value. Kiwis are packed with a lot of vitamin C (it has almost 120% of your daily needs in one little fruit). They work to keep the skin smooth, taught, and young looking, while also adding hydration and glow.

Mango

Mangos work to perk up and brighten your complexion, leaving your skin feeling and

looking younger, bouncier and more alive. It’s jam-packed with antioxidants,

and works to promote collagen production which increases skin elasticity and firmness. Its Vitamin A properties also helps with giving your skin a head-turning glow.

Coconut

It’s often argued whether coconut is a fruit or nut, one thing almost

everyone can agree on is that coconut is magical for the skin. Coconut offers the kind of soothing properties your sensitive skin dreams of and needs. Coconuts have a natural antibact power that is super effective for relieving inflammation and helps sensitive skin look and feel, calmer and brighter.
