Get glowing skin with fruity goodness

Get glowing skin with fruity goodness

Fruits are hugely beneficial to our bodies. They are bursting with vitamins and antioxidants and have many health benefits. Don't just think that it's the exotic fruits like guavas and gojis that are the fruit powerhouses. Everyday fruit such as grapefruit, apples, blueberries, avocados, kiwis and tangerines have proven powers, such as limiting fat production, boosting metabolism, reducing cholesterol and even fighting cancer.

 

Below are some of our favourite fruits and some tips of things you can do with them for great skin benefits, other than eat them, obviously! bananas-04

Banana: This is one fruit that's abundantly available all through the year. We know it's a good source of iron, magnesium and potassium and helps reduce menstrual cramps. The effect of banana on skin too is not something that can be ignored. Bananas are rich in vitamin A, B and E and hence works as an anti-aging agent. A fresh mashed banana facial can do wonders for your skin.

 

Lemon: Lemon juice is an important ingredient in most recipes. It’s a fruit for all seasons and should always have a place on your kitchen shelf or in the fridge. With its vitamin C content, its juice will keep your skin beautiful. A glass of warm water with a tsp of honey and a dash of lemon juice on an empty stomach every morning is a great skin cleanser. With its astringent properties, it can be used to lighten the skin tone and also diminish acne scars. Rub the inside of a lemon peel on your elbow remove dark spots. Mix lemon and honey and use it as a natural bleach on your skin.

 

Apple: An apple a day keeps the doctor away is a bit of a cliché, but the health benefits of apples are indisputable. The apple's antioxidant property prevents cell and tissue damage. Studies by nutritionists have shown that apples contain abundant amounts of elastin and collagen that help keep the skin young. Applying a mixture of mashed apple, honey, rose water and oatmeal can act as a great exfoliating mask on your skin.

 

Orange: Oranges are very rich in vitamin C to help improve skin texture. And like apples they too contain collagen to help slow down the skin’s ageing process. Rub the insides of orange on your skin to tighten the skin. Oranges can be dried and powdered and used as a natural scrub. Like lemons, oranges also help to clear blemishes.

 

Papaya: The benefits of this fruit on the skin have been talked about since the time of our ancestors. Papaya is rich in antioxidants and contains a special enzyme called papain that can kill dead cells and cure skin impurities. A glass of papaya milk or just applying the flesh of papaya on your skin can do absolute wonders. Try it this week.

 

Mango: Rightly called the king of fruits for not just its taste, but also for its health benefits. This soft pulpy fruit has an amazing effect on the skin too. Rich in vitamin-A and also in antioxidants, it fights against skin ageing; regenerates skin cells and restores elasticity.

 

Tip: Don't forget to buy local if you can and use fruits that are in season, as opposed to ones that have been chilled, stored and imported from the other side of the world. ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

 

Obtén una piel Radiante con las Bondades de la Fruta Las frutas son altamente nutritivas para nuestro cuerpo, están llenas de vitaminas y antioxidantes que aportan grandes beneficios para nuestra salud. No sólo las frutas exóticas como el kiwi o las cerezas del Goji son buenas para nuestro organismo; también se ha comprobado que las frutas simples como las uvas, manzanas, arándanos, aguacates y mandarinas mejoran la salud al limitar la producción de grasa, elevar el sistema inmunológico, reducir el colesterol o incluso prevenir el cáncer.

 

Aquí te damos una lista de nuestras frutas favoritas, te diremos también cómo preparar con ellas deliciosas mascarillas para nutrir tu piel.

 

Plátano: Es una fruta de la que podemos disponer en todas las épocas del año, es una buena fuente de hierro, potasio y magnesio; también es buena para reducir los cólicos menstruales. Los beneficios del plátano en la piel no pueden ser ignorados, ya que son ricos en vitamina A, B y E por lo que funcionan como un factor anti edad. Una mascarilla de plátano puede hacer maravillas en tu piel.

 

Limón: El jugo de limón es un ingrediente importante en la mayoría de las recetas. Es una fruta que se usa en todas las temporadas del año por lo que siempre debes tener un espacio para ella en tu alacena o refrigerador. El jugo que contiene el limón es alto en vitamina C, por lo que mantendrá tu piel hermosa. Tomar por la mañana un vaso de agua tibia, con una cucharada cafetera de miel y el jugo de un limón te ayudará a limpiar tu piel. Las propiedades astringentes del limón pueden aclarar el tono de tu piel y reducir cicatrices de acné. Frota el interior de una cáscara de limón en tus codos para aclarar el tono de la piel en esa área. Mezcla miel con limón y úsalo como un aclarante natural de la piel.

 

Manzana: “Una manzana al día mantendrá al doctor fuera de tu vida”, es lo que dice el refrán y la verdad que tiene mucha razón. Las manzanas brindan enormes beneficios a nuestra salud, tienen poderosos antioxidantes que previenen el daño celular y de los tejidos, también contienen grandes cantidades de colágeno y elastina para mantener tu piel joven. Aplica una mezcla de puré de manzana, agua de rosas y avena para exfoliar tu piel.

 

Naranja: Contiene grandes cantidades de vitamina C, la cual ayuda a mejorar la textura de la piel y al igual que la manzana también contiene colágeno, sustancia que ayuda a retardar el envejecimiento de la piel. Frota el interior de la cascara de una naranja en tu piel para mejorar su apariencia. Si secas unas cuantas naranjas y las haces polvo en una licuadora, puedes hacer con esto un exfoliante natural, así como los limones, las naranjas también ayudan a reducir las manchas en la piel.

 

Papaya: Los beneficios de esta fruta son conocidos desde tiempos ancestrales; esta fruta está llena de antioxidantes y contiene una enzima especial llamada papaína que ayuda a eliminar las células muertas e impurezas de la piel. Tomar un vaso de agua de papaya o simplemente aplicar una mascarilla de esta fruta en tu rostro hará maravillas en tu piel; haz la prueba esta semana.

 

Mango: Esta fruta es llamada la reina de las frutas, no sólo por su gran sabor sino por sus enormes beneficios para la salud. Su suave pulpa tiene un efecto muy benéfico en la piel. El mango es rico en vitamina A y antioxidantes que retardan el envejecimiento de la piel, regenera las células y recupera la elasticidad.

 

Tip: No olvides comprar frutas que sean de tu localidad, son mejores que las provenientes de otros países ya que han sido congeladas para su almacenamiento y traslado, compra también las frutas que sean de temporada.
