It is well known that a balanced diet contains plenty of fruits, as they offer a variety of benefits to the human body. All fruits are rich in vitamins and minerals, while they are composed of a large percentage of water. Their benefits for our skin’s health are undeniable. By consuming them- on a daily basis – we rejuvenate our body both internally and externally!
The ideal choice for a quick snack on the beach, summer fruits are juicy, refreshing and extremely nourishing for our body and skin.
Watermelon, the “king“ of summer: Watermelon is the ultimate summer fruit. Just one bite is enough to convince us that it hides all the coolness of summer! And how can it not be refreshing, since it consists of 90% water and, therefore, is our ally in hydration. The vitamin C that it contains is essential for enhancing collagen production, while vitamin A helps to slow down the onset of the first signs of aging. In addition, watermelon contains lycopene, which protects skin cells from the negative effects of solar radiation.
Melon: It provides the human body with similar benefits to those of watermelon, as it also consists of 90% water and electrolytes, offering complete and deep hydration to our skin. Melon is also rich in vitamin C as well as A, that helps to maintain the skin tissues.
Peach: Cool and tasty, peach has strong antioxidant effects and prevents premature aging. The nutrients it contains (beta carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin) protect our skin from the sun.
Pineapple: A “tropical” and rich in vitamins fruit. It contains bromelain, a substance that fights inflammation and swelling of the skin. If you have not tried it yet, you definitely should!
Grapes: All types of grapes are rich in vitamins and antioxidants. In particular, red grapes contain significant amounts of anthocyanins (responsible for their red-purple color), which are considered to be a “shield” for our skin.
It is true that during summer we prefer eating our favorite summer fruits. But, it is worth mentioning some fruits that are available all year round and generously give us their benefits!
Bananas: They are rich in magnesium and antioxidants, helping to delay premature aging. They contain vitamin C and B6, which enhances the elasticity of the skin.
Kiwi: The ultimate ally against the signs of aging. It improves skin firmness and enhances collagen production for a healthy and glowing skin.
Apples: Rich in antioxidants and vitamins E and C. They nourish the skin and help to maintain its youthful appearance, improving the overall texture of the skin.
