FRUIT FOR THOUGHT

We’ve always heard “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but one of the biggest benefits from eating fruit is for our skin! Because I can’t say enough about anti-oxidants anti-oxidants ANTI-OXIDANTS! They are the secret to fighting free radicals that break everything down, causing the depletion of healthy cells and leading to skin in-elasticity, wrinkles, acne and irritations. Think of anti-oxidants as an army inside of you that attacks everything skin-harming that comes its way. But we need to keep the army replenished and fruit is our biggest supplier! Here are the anti-oxidant super powers:

BERRIES: Blueberries, strawberries + blackberries
TOMATOES
CANTALOUPE
PLUMS

The other super power for your skin is VITAMIN C because it delays or even reduces wrinkles. The biggest fruit providers of Vitamin C are:

KIWI
ORANGES
GRAPEFRUIT
GUAVA

So let’s all pledge to try to eat at least two fruits a day! And don’t forget besides feeding your skin fruit from the inside, they also make great D.I.Y. home facial masks! Kitchen Beautician will be back very soon with amazing masks to get us ready for Spring!
