Hello, guacamole! People reported that even though sunscreen is the best way to protect yourself against sunburn, avocados might also protect your skin from getting burned, too. The tasty food is full of high levels of carotenoids and powerful antioxidants. Wow, just another excuse to eat guac!
Eat Citrus, Get Glowing Skin
By adding citrus to your diet (which has tons of vitamin C) your skin will be better at repairing collagen (aka will give you glowing skin). “It’s an antioxidant, which can help slow the effects of aging,” Lisa says. Try adding lemon to your ice water or cup of tea every day for an easy way to have more citrus.
