Categories of fruit and vegetable that may help to make your skin clear, soft and supple

Each time I see pictures of most celebrities (foreign and Nigerian celebrities), especially the female actors, I am always amazed at how clear, bright, and soft their skin looks.

As women, it is one of our greatest desires to have the softest skin. That is why, it is no surprise how happy we become or that big smile on our faces each time someone compliments us on how soft, smooth or clear our skin is.

That is also why it is no surprise the skincare industry has continued to thrive, because people (especially women) are constantly looking for creams, soaps, lotions, ointments etc that can help make their skin soft, smooth, and supple.

There are so many skincare products out there, some genuine while some are fake, some expensive, and some cheap. But do you know that eating fruits and vegetables may also help you to achieve that soft skin you desire.

According to medical experts, eating fruits and vegetables regularly may help to improve the quality of the skin. Let's look at 2 of such fruits and vegetables.

1. Fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C. According to medical experts, fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C are beneficial to the skin. They help to brighten the skin, and may also help to clear acne. They also contain collagen which helps to keep the skin clear, firm and reduce the appearance of the signs of aging.

This is probably the reason why there are so many vitamin C serums in the market today. So, instead of spending thousands of naira to buy one small bottle of vitamin C serum, why not make it a habit of eating at least one vitamin C fruit or vegetable everyday.

The common sources of vitamin C are oranges, cabbage, pawpaw, lemon, lime, pineapple, watermelon etc.

2. Fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin A. Carrots and sweet potatoes are some of the most common sources of beta carotene which the body concerts to vitamin A.

From my personal experience, carrots are very effective in giving you a clear, smooth and bright skin. I wrote about it in my previous article. Just ensure you are consistent in either drinking the juice regularly or eating it raw regularly.

I hope you enjoyed reading this article and learned something from it. Please, share this article so that others can learn from it.
