Everybody has a duty to make their skin look the best it can be.
Moisturize regularly, try to avoid germs and all that are things we’ve heard from our junior school days. However, there are still cases of acne, spots and other times when the skin just looks all tired and old. Your skin can be smooth and clear by simply eating fruits that are readily available at your beck and call.
Here are a few you should actually try out.
Apples are the richest source of malic acid, a “fruit acid” extracted from apples. This malic acid promotes healthier, firmer and youthful looking skin by renewing skin cells without damaging the skin layer.
Like apples, pineapples come with bromelain, an anti-inflammatory enzyme which has special benefits for skin, as it gently exfoliates the skin. Constant use of pineapples will help clear off dead skin and reveal beautiful glowing skin.
Pawpaw contains papain which is an enzyme that has antibacterial activities. It can also remove dead, damaged skin. Pawpaw extracts are widely used in the skin care industry in the form of facial peels, soaps, cleansers and lotions
Lemons are responsible for skin cleansing, lightening, smoothening and even softening. Like pawpaw, it has enzymes that replace dead skin cells. Lemons safely whiten and lighten skin and promote even skin tone by reducing acne marks and blemishes.
Tomatoes are natural skin smoothers. They can reduce pore sizes and heal pimples. Mash some fresh tomatoes, apply and leave for a while and wash off shortly after.
Avocados contain biotin, also known as vitamin B7 which promotes cell regeneration and growth, resulting in faster-growing hair and nails, as well as glowing skin.
Bananas contain high levels of potassium, which helps moisturizes and hydrates the skin, making it look fuller, more supple and youthful.
