As soon as you step into the winter season, dryness is the first thing that you notice and just about when you think you have dealt with it, your skin starts acting weird. In the morning, when you look in the mirror, most of you notice dull and pigmented skin or an acne-filled face staring back at you. Your soft skin is screaming for help and are you even lending your ears to it? Well, we all know that it happens to everyone’s skin; however, nobody is looking out for the perfect solution to this problem.
It is a fact that your skin is the victim of poor lifestyle choices and ignorance or can say, you are not blessed with the “perfect skin” genes. Need not to worry about it, if such is the case with you. This is something you can turn around by keeping a note on your diet and beauty products that you apply to your skin (to maintain your skin). The best way to rejuvenate your skin is to consume fruits and apply a fruit mask every alternate day. Invest 10 minutes of your time every day in doing this and see a visible difference in two weeks’ time.
We all know that papayas contain vitamins A, C, B, pantothenic acid, and folate and minerals such as copper, potassium, and magnesium. They also contain enzymes like papain and chymopapain that help prevent skin damage by free radicals and have antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. Consuming papaya can help prevent constipation, which is one of the reasons for poor skin health. It can also help treat warts, eczema, corns, and cutaneous tubercles. Scientists have also found that papaya can help heal wounds and chronic skin ulcers. So, if you have digestive issues, scars, and pigmentation, you must include papaya in your diet and beauty regimen.
Special Tip: You can eat it or apply papaya mask (if you can’t eat it in a day)
Avocado is rich in healthy fats, dietary fiber, and vitamins E, A, C, K, B6, niacin, folate, and pantothenic acid. It has antioxidant properties that help reduce oxidative damage, which, in turn, prevents DNA damage. Consuming avocado can promote healthy aging as it is rich in lutein and zeaxanthin that protect your skin from UV radiation. The healthy fats in avocados help retain the skin’s elasticity, reduce inflammation, and speed up wound healing.
Special Tip: Using it as a beauty product or adding it to your daily diet could get you clear and flawless skin.
The sweet, juicy, and pulpy orange has a vibrant color and intoxicating smell. This fruit can also work wonders for your skin. Like lemons, oranges too are rich in vitamin C – 100 grams of oranges contain 54 milligrams of vitamin C, which is an antioxidant. This means that oranges can help prevent oxidative damage, photodamage, DNA damage, reduce inflammation, and aid collagen synthesis. Now, let me tell you how to include oranges in your daily life.
Special Tip: One or two glasses of orange juice could solve any skin-related problems instantly.
Not many of us like to eat bananas, but those who do can tell you that they rarely experience constipation. Moreover, a friend of mine recently recommended that I use banana peel to remove acne scars, and it did work really well. The scientific explanation behind banana’s exceptional skin healing properties is that it is rich in dietary fiber, vitamins A, C, K, E, and folate, and minerals such as potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. It is a very good natural moisturizer and has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Here’s how you can use a banana in various ways to get a glowing skin.
Special Tip: Bananas’ mask is more effective than eating it in the breakfast.
