5 Fruits and Veggies for Fresh Summer Skin

By Maris Callahan for DietsInReview.com.

With the summer sun shining you might be tempted to tanning in order to give your skin a glow. However, it’s no secret that sun exposure increases your risk for skin cancer. That’s why we want to recommend a safer way to give your complexion a healthy glow this season.

We know that water flushes toxins from the skin cells to give that glowing complexion we all yearn for. In addition to water, there are many fruits and vegetables you can eat to achieve that look, too.

We spoke with Dr. Brooke Jackson, a board certified dermatologist and founder of The Skin Wellness Center of Chicago, who says fresh fruits and vegetables found at farmers markets not only taste delicious, but are ideal for improving your skin’s condition and overall appearance.

Making these five fruits and vegetables part of your daily routine can improve your complexion, but also be a simple way to control your diet, meet daily requirements for fruits and vegetables, and keep a beauty regimen budget under control.

Sweet potatoes are not available in Poland and mangoes are extremely expensive.

This is a great article! Too bad mangos are impractical here in New England. I only buy them if the local co-op is discounting them because they are going bad. Otherwise I feel too guilty as they travel far to get here.
Everything else I can get locally and love to eat. Now I am looking forward to blueberry season with even greater anticipation!!
