Let this sink in - ageing is inevitable, it's up to you to take good care of your skin. While anti-ageing skincare products promise to work wonders for your skin, they won't bring positive results if your diet is off track. For the sake of your skin, you should stay away from oily, greasy foods and embrace foods which are rich in water, flavonoids, antioxidants, minerals and nutrients. Fruits are a good food choice and some of them have superpowers too!
Hint: Like slowing down the process of ageing in your body, giving your skin that radiant glow and keeping those free-radicals at bay.

Get your daily dose of anti-oxidants from these delicious fruits and watch your skin glow!✨
1. It's Raining Berries!
The next time you have a sugar craving, make sure you have a bowl of berries! Strawberries, blueberries, mulberries and blackberries, each of these tiny fruits are packed with antioxidants, vitamin C and anthocyanin which are great for your complexion. You probably have heard of antioxidants and vitamin C, but what's anthocyanin? Anthocyanins are present in berries and are anti-ageing ingredients that help to maintain the levels of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid in the body.
2. Papayas For The Win
The best time to eat papaya is in the morning for breakfast or as a snack in between meals. This orange fruit is loaded with vitamins A, B, C and E. All these vitamins are responsible for clearing one's complexion and fighting off free radicals. Women who want to lighten the spots and scars on their face and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles - they'll certainly find a friend in the papaya fruit.
3. Avocados Are Nature's Butter
Creamy, soft and smooth - avocados make a delicious snack. It's rich in monosaturated fats and contains vitamins such as A, C & E. Eaten or applied directly on the skin, the avocado pulp is bound to make your skin look fresh, energised and youthful.
4. Precious Pomegranate Beads
I don't know about you, but pomegranate beads look like blood-red rubies to me. Although they're a pain to clean, the positive effects it has on the skin makes the effort worth it. Each seed contains vitamins C, D, E, K and a precious compound called punicalagin. Punicalagin supports collagen in its fight against fine lines and wrinkles.
5. Juicy & Crunchy Watermelon
I bet you did not know that each bite of watermelon you take has about 92% of water and 6% of sugar! They're delicious, super healthy and helps one age gracefully. The Vitamin C and E in it contribute to making skin appear brighter, firmer and younger.
A bowl of fresh fruit, exercise and a little skincare each day, will reward you with youthful, radiant skin!
