Stay away from the 2 “f” foods: fried and fatty. Instead of frying, try baking or sautéing in a natural oil like olive oil. Also up your intake of fruits and vegetables, and not only by eating them, but using them on your skin. With its vitamin C content, lemon juice will keep your skin beautiful.
A glass of warm water with a tsp of honey and a dash of lemon juice on an empty stomach every morning is a great skin cleanser. With its astringent properties, it can be used to lighten the skin tone and also diminish acne scars. Rub the inside of a lemon peel on your elbow to remove dark spots.
Apple: An apple a day keeps the doctor away is clichéd, but its health benefits are indisputable. Apple’s antioxidant property prevents cell and tissue damage. Studies by nutritionists have shown that apples contain abundant amounts of elastin and collagen that help keep the skin young. Applying a mixture of mashed apple, honey, rose water and oatmeal can act as a great exfoliating mask on your skin.
