Skin Benefits of Citrus



Apart from adding a refreshing zing to your food dishes, citrus fruits are jam-packed with antioxidants that can eliminate stress, rejuvenate your body and mind and fight the negative signs of aging.


The rich vitamin C content of citrus fruits can effectively fight the free radical action, which prevents skin aging. The citric acid present in the citrus fruits helps curb the bacterial action and pathogens present under the skin, which helps your skin glow naturally. As you age, your body's ability to produce collagen decreases and the elasticity of your skin takes a hit too. Orange peels are one of the most effective home remedies to exfoliate skin and eliminate dead pores. According to Macrobiotic Nutritionist and Health Practitioner Shilpa Arora ND, "Vitamin C is critical for skin health. It helps repair and rejuvenate the skin, helping in wound healing and building connective tissue." Vitamin C helps prevent damage done by pollution and UV rays too.
