Cadrene Heslop

Most people choose to avoid fruits and vegetables. Do you? One in every ten adults eats the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables each day.

The Dietary Guidelines of Americans suggest two and a half cups for vegetables. And two cups for fruits, which adds up to about nine servings for the day. American Institute for Cancer Research studies says the benefit goes beyond general health. The results link decreased risk of developing cancer to five servings daily.

Other findings show that fruits are good sources of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. All these components are essential for your skin.

What two fruits are best for your skin, according to science?


The avocado trend is ending.

Yet, avocados, even without their popularity, are worth keeping in your diet. This green fruit contains healthy unsaturated fats.

Avocadoes are rich in monosaturated fats that help skin stay flexible and moisturized. Plus, have a high concentration of antioxidants that form collagen to keep your skin firm.

A study with 39 participants (age 27-73 years) tested avocado's effect on skin aging. Results showed a significant increase in forehead skin firmness after eight weeks.

According to Medical News Today, pomegranate juices are an alternative to green juices. This red fruit also contains high levels of vitamins and antioxidants. Thus, it helps with skin health. Plus, it reduces inflammation and improves memory.

People with oily or congested skin find pomegranates most beneficial. Pomegranates contain 48% of your daily vitamin C needs. It also has anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and tannins to block free radicals.

But doctors also point out that some people have skin allergies to topical application.
