How Eating Fruit Can Help Your Skin

When people think about skincare, their minds typically jump to beauty products like cleansers and serums. While these products are fantastic for making step-by-step routine videos on TikTok, they’re not the only way to clear up and revitalize your skin. Today, I’m introducing a new step to your skincare routine: fruit!


You’ve probably heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” It turns out that’s true! Besides boosting overall health, fruits are rich in nutrients that benefit your skin.


First up, Vitamin C. This vitamin can be found in fruits like oranges, strawberries, kiwi, and papaya. Vitamin C helps boost collagen production, reduce wrinkles, and even protect against UV damage. Collagen is essential because it improves circulation, effectively making your skin brighter. This improved circulation can also reduce the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation.

Another key benefit from fruits is antioxidants. These can be found in various berries such as blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Antioxidants reduce oxidative stress and prevent premature aging. They can also help protect your skill from damage on a cellular level from things such as free radicals, secondhand smoke, and air pollution.

We can even tie this into last week’s blog post on how something as small as adding lemon or lime to your water can significantly benefit your skin. These citrus fruits have antibacterial properties that can help clear up acne and improve skin tone.

So next time you’re doing your skincare routine, don’t forget to visit your kitchen and grab some fruit. Your skin will thank you!
