The foods and substances you put into your body can play a major role in the way your skin looks. Healthy food choices help improve your skin tone and maintain your skin’s production of collagen and elastin — which contribute to young-looking skin. Certain fruits even contain specific types of nutrients that can help you achieve youthful, radiant skin for years to come!

Here are four delicious fruits that can help you maintain beautiful, youthful skin.
1. Pineapple can help with skin elasticity
This tropical fruit is rich in vitamin C and provides an average 432.6 mg of vitamin C in each fruit. Vitamin C helps boost collagen production so you can benefit from skin firmness and elasticity. An enzyme found in pineapples called bromelain has even been proven effective at speeding up healing after cosmetic surgery, in that it helps reduce inflammation, bruising, and swelling.
For an added vitamin C boost, try using C E Peptides by Vivierskin, which helps repair and rejuvenate damaged skin.
2. Blueberries can help reverse signs of aging
Like pineapple, blueberries are high in vitamin C and improve your skin’s collagen production. Blueberries are also packed with vitamins B, E, and A — all of which help reduce and reverse signs of aging. Lastly, blueberries contain a highly concentrated amount of antioxidants that protect against skin cell damage and help lower the risk for skin cancer.
To boost collagen production even more, start using AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cream by Vivierskin. This skincare product contains anti-aging ingredients and a unique combination of alpha hydroxy acids that lend to younger-looking skin.
3. Melons can hydrate your skin
Melons such as cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon are all exceptionally high in water content, and help hydrate and plump your skin. When you eat melons, you not only benefit from high water content, but vitamins and antioxidants that help clear your skin.
Consume melons before and after workouts, and as snacks between meals to help your skin stay healthy and hydrated. To boost your skin’s hydration, try using Reparative Moisture Emulsion by iS Clinical, which offers deep hydration to reduce signs of aging.
4. Strawberries have natural antioxidants that protect your skin
Lycopene is an antioxidant that gives fruits such as strawberries and tomatoes their bright red colors. This antioxidant naturally helps protect your skin from the sun, and reduces the risk for skin cancer and pigmentation irregularities.
If your skin has suffered sun damage, try using Barrier Renewal Complex by EltaMD, which moisturizes and improves dry, damaged skin. Alternately, try one or more skin rejuvenation treatments that can treat and reduce signs of sun damage and aging. Examples of effective cosmetic skin treatments that can help reverse the effects of sun damage are BBL photorejuvenation, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels.
