“Certain foods are naturally rich in nutrients that may help keep skin healthy and even fight signs of aging. Vitamin C, beta-carotene and antioxidants found in fruits like peaches, plums and nectarines work beneath the surface to protect and rejuvenate skin from the harmful damage of ultraviolet rays. Peaches are especially rich in alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), a key nutrient added to many age-defying cosmetics.
Watermelon, ruby red grapefruit and tomatoes are all rich in lycopene. Lycopene actually protects skin cells from the sun’s burning rays which can lead to premature aging and even skin cancer, and replenishes the cells.
Bright-colored fruits and vegetables, such as bell peppers, tomatoes, pineapple, strawberries, cantaloupe, oranges, carrots, spinach and broccoli, are your best choice for vitamins A and C. Colorful fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C and A are important for collagen formation, which helps keep skin firm.
And don’t forget about water!! Staying hydrated keeps your skin firm and well-hydrated.”
