The dark pigment in blueberries is a result of a high carotenoid content, which can activate a form of Vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A stimulates the renewal of skin calls for a softer smoother and more glowing appearance so get ready to beam radiance after sipping on this tipple.

Cucumbers for acne

There’s nothing better than sitting back and relaxing with cucumbers over your eyes on pamper night but the juicy green vegetable can work harder in your wellbeing regimen. Cucumber is rich in vitamin E, which helps to fight against the free radicals that cause acne and scars. So, you either eat the cucumber or add it to your water.

Apples for sun protection

An apple a day keeps the sun burn away! The high vitamin C level in apples encourages the skin to produce melanin, the pigment responsible for colour in your skin. This helps to protect your skin from UV rays.

Raspberries for wrinkles

They’re sweet, juicy and packed with essential fatty acids. In fact, a cup of raspberries provides 155mg of omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce wrinkles by plumping up the fat cells in your skin.

Oranges and lemons for sun damage

These citrus fruits are high in vitamin C, which aids in healing dry, chapped and sun-damaged skin, as well as boosting the production of collagen to help maintain elasticity and tone.

Kiwis for… everything

Kiwis are a handy all-rounder. They are a great source of antioxidants, including vitamin C & E, and also contain zinc, which helps keep hair, nails, teeth and skin healthy.

Fruits and water is always a good idea.
