"Oh, your skin is glowing," is a flattering compliment we all want to hear.
Hydration plays a major factor in how radiant your skin is going to look. Make sure you're drinking plenty of purified or spring water. Often you think you're drinking enough water to stay hydrated, but your skin tells otherwise (dry, ashy, dull!) So, drink up and make your way towards a stunning luminosity.
But, there's another skin secret for achieving that glow. We all know fruit is an important part of a healthy diet, but did you know it's also food for your skin?
Fruit contains so many nutrients and vitamins that tighten, tone, brighten and even out your skin. They are one of the most powerful ways to achieve your dream skin. Bonus: they are all-natural and vegan!
Here are six fruits to help you achieve that enviable glow:
Avocado — for texture
Avocados can gently exfoliate your skin, owing to their antioxidant and mineral content. Applying avocado to your skin can unclog skin pores, remove dead skin cells, and remove excess oil. Moreover, avocados provide skin nourishment, boosting skin repair and rejuvenation.
Kiwi — for tone
Kiwis are rich in citric acid – an essential for skin cell regeneration! The faster your skin is able to heal and produce new cells, the brighter your complexion tends to be. It also acts as a natural exfoliator that removes away the layers of dead skin cells, only to reveal a clearer, more evened out skin tone.
Blueberry — for tone
Loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, one benefit of blueberry is that it can nourish the skin and give it a healthy glow. You can either include a few in your diet or apply a crushed-blueberries-and-yogurt mask on your face for an instant glow.
Pineapple — for texture
The high vitamin C and bromeliad content of pineapple juice make it an effective acne treatment. Bromeliad is an enzyme that softens skin while breaking down and helping to sweep away dead skin cells.
Strawberry — to tighten
The salicylic acid in strawberries reduces and fades away hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Strawberries are a great exfoliator and remove the dead skin cells that pull your skin down. It also tightens the pores and prevents further blemishes from forming.
Coconut — to treat/tone
Coconut helps bolster your skin's protective barrier layer, trapping moisture inside and keeping skin supple and hydrated. Reduces inflammation. Coconut also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it beneficial for irritated, chafed skin.
