Over here at Skincare.net we absolutely love fruits and vegetables. There’s no hiding that fact and it’s all because we know how powerful they really are. As we all know, vegetables and fruits have a ton of benefits and if you’re not consuming them, you should at least be incorporating them into your skin care routine. There are tons of beauty products on the market today that include these gems in them and given that’s the case, you should be using them.
Now, I’m not going to sit here and list specific products that I think you should try out. Instead, I’m going to share some insight on the benefits of specific fruits and vegetables that we’ve researched over the years.
Yes, we have tested products that contain these ingredients. Afterall, that’s what we do best. Keep in mind that this list is not complete but merely scratches the surface.
Veggies and Fruits You Need In Your Beauty Products
Well, here’s everything that you need to know about some of the best fruits and veggies that we feel should be incorporated into your own skin and beauty products.
Avocado – Are you a guacamole fan? We LOVE it! Reason being, it’s one of those foods that taste great and make you look great. Avocado oil is not incorporated into products enough. It’s an oil that acts as an emollient and contains loads of vitamin A. The reason you need emollients and fatty acids is simple. They can bring your moisture levels back up to normal.
Ginger Root – I’m guessing that most people haven’t used skin and beauty products that contain ginger root extract. This is jam-packed with antioxidants that help keep your skin free from damage often caused by the pesky free radical build up as well as external environmental exposure.
Lemon – Why include lemons in your beauty products? Well, for many reasons! Lemons contain lots of natural acids and they are actually very high in vitamin C. Would you believe me if I said that they were higher in vitamin C than all other fruits? Lemon also has antiseptic and astringent properties. This will help kick your skin back into high gear.
Cucumber – We’re huge fans of cucumber as a skin care ingredient. In fact, so much that the team uses products which contain cucumbers and that we also like to use them in DIY treatments. The cucumber is great for those that want to reduce puffiness or inflammation. An added tip, I suggest people use this on days that you’re hungover. Cucumber slices on your eyes feel amazing, trust me.
Apple – Did you know that green apple is considered to be “nature’s fruit?” My guess is that it’s because the green apple contains lots of nutrition and antioxidants. Incorporating apple into your skin regimen can help purify things and revitalize your skin. They are great for detoxing when applied to your skin as well. My advice would be to try one of those apple stem cell creams – try this brand.
Orange – Brands should be incorporating orange extract into their products. Why? Well, they are antioxidants that protect your skin from damage. They are also known to help better regulate your sebum production.
Turmeric – I love this ingredient and quite frankly I don’t think that it’s used enough. This ingredient is part of the ginger family and given that’s the case, it’s got great antioxidant properties as well as anti-inflammation properties. If you’re battle skin issues such as tone or brightness, then this is the ingredient you need.
Well, be on the lookout this weekend for these ingredients in various skin care products. If you see a product that contains them, then go for it! Give it a try and if you share your experience with us we’ll even reimburse you for doing so. Contact us today to learn more.
