5 Fruits and Veggies for Fresh Summer Skin

Mangoes: Per the National Mango Board, this tropical fruit contains more than 20 varieties of vitamins and minerals. Mangoes have a fruit acid enzyme profile and contain Beta-C and vitamin A derivatives that activate cell regeneration.

Try this: Mango Banana Soup with Cardamom

Mushrooms: Mushrooms are one of the only food sources for vitamin D, contain antioxidants, and have anti-inflammatory properties. All of this helps the skin remain strong and youthful, as inflammation plays a role in aging and may increase risk for some skin cancers.

Try this: Spring Greens-Stuffed Mushrooms

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!!
