- More hydration
Skin needs more water to stay "in shape" than you think. It needs lots of water to stay looking smooth and shiny. That's why the skin moisturizer industry never goes out of business and probably never will. Yet, a lot of people do not get their required water intake because it is just so bland. So, adding the flavor of fruits to water can make it more enjoyable to drink and hydrate your skin.
- Natural sugar
Sure there is some sugar in most fruits. However, these are natural sugar, which is good for our metabolism, unlike the processed sugar we consume daily. The quantity is even low yet it pumps you up rather than you going for soda or an energy drink.
When you consume the fruits, the sugar is released into the blood stream gradually, providing you with a steady supply of energy and leaving you feeling satisfied for longer and therefore less likely to snack. No more snacking at midnight, better eating habits. And better eating habits, better looking the skin.
- The key nutrient Vitamin C
Fruits are high in vitamins. Vitamin C, especially, is super antioxidant. The benefits of vitamin C include support the immune system, promote radiant skin and help blemishes heal properly. The best sources are blackcurrants, blueberries, broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries and sweet potatoes. It is also needed to produce collagen that strengthens the capillaries that supply the skin.
Do you ever get thirsty even after drinking a can of soda? This is because soda is high in artificial sugar that is dehydrating to cells. Your skin doesn't like this. So drinking water is the best way to get your skin refreshed. Best start with watermelon and cucumber if you just got off soda. Those will help reset your body metabolism and your skin will start to heal into its youthful smoothness.
