Not only do these fruits have benefits on your skin, but they’re also great to taste to provide nutrients for your skin.
Eat oranges: Citrus fruits like oranges are known for high vitamin C. This nutrient is responsible for the production of collagen, a protein found in young, supple skin. It is also an effective antioxidant to battle signs of aging. Low amounts of vitamin C in your body can lead to scaly and rough skin.
Try: The St. Ives Energizing Citrus Moisturizing Body Wash offers natural citrus extracts and also contains alpha hydroxy fruit acids to soften skin.
Eat pears: Bosc and Bartlett pears are full of fiber. Eating fiber slows the release of sugar into the blood. Too many sugar “spikes” can damage the collagen that keeps skin healthy and smooth.
Try: Wash up with St. Ives Revitalizing Pear & Soy Body Wash — both key ingredients are known moisturizers that fight dryness.
Eat pomegranates: Pomegranates are rich in vitamin E, an essential vitamin for healthy skin. Eating foods rich in this antioxidant fights free radicals that cause premature aging.
Try: Carry it through to the skin and apply St. Ives Daily Hydrating Vitamin E Body Lotion to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and stretch marks.
Eat mangoes: Mangoes are a rich source of vitamin A and copper. A lack of vitamin A can make skin dry and more prone to breakouts, and both this vitamin and mineral can help treat existing skin conditions. Eating foods with these substances allows skin to rebuild tissues, which aids in healing scars and getting rid of blemishes.
Try: St. Ives Replenishing Mineral Therapy Body Lotion also replenishes nutrients that skin loses daily, including copper and potassium.
