OrangeDid you know that eating vitamin C rich foods can help your skin look younger?

According to data from the NHANES study (a nation-wide health and nutrition survey that looks at what people eat and how it affects their bodies), people who eat more vitamin C rich foods, such as citrus foods, tomatoes, and strawberries, have more youthful, younger-looking skin and fewer wrinkles. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and can help protect your skin from the sun’s (or a tanning bed’s) harmful UV rays. And, this is timely advice, since July is UV Safety Month!

So, eat an orange as part of your beach-side diet this year and your skin will appreciate it!
