Keep Glowing with These 5 Spring Fruits & Veggies
Spring is the perfect time to eat a little healthier, now that we can enjoy more fresh fruits and veggies since more are actually in season. And what better way to help your skin truly glow than through the food that you eat? Sure, skincare products help, but without living a healthy lifestyle, your skin is more susceptible to breakouts, inflammation, and even premature aging.
If you're looking for a few more fresh fruits and veggies to include in your diet, I've got a few that you can try. Not only will it make you feel better about what you're putting in your body, it'll make you feel better about your skin too!
Asparagus is great for dehydrated skin because it's made up of 90% water. It's also a good source of Vitamin C and E which means it can help fight inflammation and signs of premature aging.
Beets are another great source of Vitamin C as well as betalains. Betalains are a pigment found in beets that can help fade pigmentation, brighten your complexion, and give your skin a natural blush.
Avocados contain Omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin E which help to repair skin damage, increase elasticity, and improve firmness. Avocados are also a good source of biotin, a vitamin known to help prevent dry skin when applied topically. If you suffer from dry skin, try an avocado mask!
Strawberries contain Vitamin C and ellagic acid which work together to neutralize free radicals and prevent free radical damage. Strawberries can also help protect your skin from UV damage by producing a strong photoprotective effect on your skin.
Cherries contain high levels of antioxidants that can help prevent or slow down the signs of premature aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Cherries may also help brighten dull, aging skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots.
