Top 5 fruits recommended for healthy skin
During the summer months skin can suffer. With hotter, drier weather it can often feel parched, especially if it is not properly protected from the sun’s rays.
But while skincare might require a little more attention, this isn’t a cause for panic buying of lotions and potions, especially when the skin saving ingredients are right under your nose.
Fruit is great for maintaining a healthy living and is also refreshing and delicious during the hotter weather.
As well as being tasty though, they are also jam-packed with vitamins and minerals, helping you achieve a really healthy glow all season long. Here are a few fruits you should be including in your diet.
As this fruit is made up of around 90 per cent water it is a top way for keeping skin hydrated. It also contains vitamins A and C and is known to help reduce give you a rosy and smooth complexion.
Strawberries are filled with anti-oxidants, which protect the skin from harmful environmental affects. Those of you worried about your skin ageing rapidly will also be pleased to hear that its high concentration of vitamin C can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Grapes are a fab low-calorie fruit known to help stimulate and detoxify the skin. They contain vitamin A and B3, as well as minerals, citric acid and tannin, moisturising the skin and increasing skin cell re-growth.
Pineapples are a good source of vitamin C, which is a natural antioxidant and ensures skin remains hydrated and elastic, great for drier weather conditions.
Like oranges and most fruit papaya is high in vitamin C and also has one of highest levels of vitamin A and carotene of all fruit. It is rich in papain, which helps aid skin cell production, as well as decreasing the chances of your skin becoming inflamed or developing a rash.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
