Fruits , that Fight for your Skin ..


Who doesn’t love killing two birds with one stone? Many multi-purpose beauty products, such as BB Creams, have become staples in our daily regimen. But this summer, we’ve also turned to superfoods that provide benefits when ingested and are used in our favorite products. Beauty has never tasted so good.


In The Body: Strawberries are packed with potassium that regulates blood pressure. The fruit also works as a buffer against the negative effects of sodium.

On The Skin: Because strawberries are so rich in Vitamin C, they prevent wrinkles by producing collagen and improving skin’s elasticity. The fruit is also packed with ellagic acid that prevents collagen destruction and inflammation.

New research by Italian and Spanish scientists published in the Journal of Agricultural Food Chemistry found that a pigment in strawberries called anthocyanin works as a block against ultraviolet radiation and reduces skin damage. Expect to see strawberry extract used in sunscreen in the near future.


In The Body: Grapes get a bad rap because they are high in sugar. However, that natural sugar treats fatigue by providing a boost of energy. The fruit also aids in treating constipation and indigestion.

On The Skin: Because it contains tartartic acid, the fruit breaks the bonds that hold dead skin cells together in the uppermost level of the epidermis, making it a great ingredient to use in exfoliators and cleansers.

Product To Try: We love Skin Ceutical’s Equalizing Toner, because it restores and balances the skin to its natural state by eliminating dead skin cells.


In The Body: An apple a day does keep the doctor away. At least for athletes, that is. A new study by researchers at the University of Iowa have recently found that ursolic acid from the apple peel promotes the growth of muscle and brown fat – both of which are very important for athletes.

On The Skin: Quercetin, an antoxidant found in apple peels, is a great treatment for preventing acne by calming skin. It also treats acne by slowing down inflammation and helps to clear skin.

Product To Try: Test out Super Acne Solution ,  to prevent break outs, exfoliate and brighten the skin.
