Many people don’t realize that beauty quite literally comes from within. What we put into our bodies is reflected in the appearance of our skin. Acne is a troublesome condition that affects teens as well as adults and is usually a result of a hormone imbalance or it can be linked directly to what we eat. Sugary, fatty and fried foods are sure to increase breakouts as these foods increase sebum levels, which causes an increase in the amount of oil our skin produces. Luckily this list of awesome fruits can help to keep acne breakouts under control and even get rid of them permanently. Just remember to buy organic!
Papayas as well as other orange fruits including peaches and mangoes are rich in beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in our bodies. Vitamin A is essential for a healthy clear skin and works by absorbing excess sebum as well as reducing and calming inflammation due to its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Our Sweet Orange Foaming Cleanser contains Papaya extract for these very reasons!
Apples are fantastic for keeping your skin looking beautiful due to their high water and vitamin content. Staying hydrated is key to keeping your skin healthy and when vitamins A, C, calcium, iron, phosphorous and magnesium are added to the mix you are left with a fruit that is not only delicious, but will help control those pesky pimples.
Oranges and other Citrus Fruits
Oranges and other citrus fruits are ideal for acne skins due to their high Vitamin C content, which reduces inflammation and prevents infection. Lemons are often used as a spot treatment to dry up a pimple quickly and are also often included in organic skin products as they brighten and gently exfoliate the skin. You can even do your own at home lemon face scrub by adding a few drops to olive oil and sugar before gently massaging over your face. Say hello to bright, glowing and super soft skin. Many of our products contain vitamin C from citrus fruits because of all the awesome health benefits they provide!
