We love fruits here at Lovery, and not just because they’re so gosh-darn delicious!
Aside from being very useful snacks, fruits offer much for skin and hair care. This is why with our spa gift baskets, we’ve dedicated some to specific fruits.
Here, we mention some of our more favorite fruits!
Sweet, tart, juicy and pulpy—the orange is truly a wondrous fruit. Chockfull of vitamin C, the orange has a significant amount of the important antioxidant in its structure, which helps in preventing DNA damage, photo damage, reduce inflammation and oxidative damage.
Even if the taste of grapefruit isn’t to your liking, it’s still not a reason to skip using such an ingredient in your skincare regime. Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, the grapefruit is hailed for its skin-protective and anti-aging effects. Grapefruit is also useful in keeping your skin taut and plump, since it promotes the collagen production in the skin.
Cherries are a staple ingredient in many skincare products for obvious reasons. Cherries have anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce skin damage due to irritation, sensitivity or sun exposure. Rich in nutrients such as Vitamin A, C, K, folate and fiber, and minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and calcium, cherries are the best ingredients for those that suffer from sensitive skin that’s prone to breakouts.
Want spotless, clear, soft skin? Start using strawberry-based products in your daily skincare regime. With their surplus of vitamin C and salicylic acid, the strawberry extract goes deep into your skin and cleans out the pores. It also protects you against UV radiation and prevents wrinkle formation, giving you that youthful, pink glow.
Mangoes aren’t just refreshing in taste. Its long list of minerals and nutrients helps keep your skin protected against inflammation and DNA damage. This is so effective in fact that mango is even used for special products that cater to scalp and skin damage, since it has fast wound healing properties.
Powerful in effect, the pomegranate is quite beneficial for your skin, especially if you suffer from skin damage and pigmentation. Rich in minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus as well as in vitamins K and C as well as folate, pomegranate is one fruit that can be used to treat a number of skin issues.
