The best five-a-day choices for beautiful, healthy skin! 

A diet rich in fruit and vegetables is sure to keep you looking and feeling healthy, but what are the best fruits and vegetables to eat when it comes to skincare? Certain fruit and vegetables are unbeatable for body repair and form an essential part of any skin care regime. Read on to discover the best additions to your plate:  

The proof is in the… fruit and vegetables 

Avocado really does work magic on the skin. High in vitamin E and other antioxidants, it protects against wrinkles and the signs of ageing. It is also loaded with vitamin C, which is essential to make the collagen that gives you firm skin. And the high oleic acid content will leave you with soft, hydrated skin.    

Kiwi is another essential body repair fruit. Again high in vitamin C, E and antioxidants, it is a great skincare secret that will leave you with healthy, young looking skin. But when it comes to fruits with antioxidant powers, blueberries take the top spot. Add some to your muesli as part of your body care routine to help fight the signs of ageing.  

If you’d rather drink your fruit, turn to pomegranate. The juice is as beneficial as the fruit itself, and is packed full of antioxidants and vitamins A, C and E. It’s a skin care wonder that will leave you with healthy, soft skin. 

On the vegetable side of things, spinach is a tried and tested body repair favourite. It might not make you strong, but it is packed full of the antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients the skin needs to keep it looking youthful and healthy.  

Pumpkin is another often underrated vegetable that will do wonders for your skin. All parts of the pumpkin are great additions to the diet: skin, seeds and flesh. With high B vitamin content, it may even help combat acne. 

Sweet potatoes are another great source of skin-friendly vitamins and minerals that you should add to your plate. The best thing? They are a great source of magnesium: the anti-stress mineral.

So get chomping! And if your skin needs more attention, check out the Garnier Ultimate Oil range for some fruity additions to your skin care programme!
