When we have a skin concern, we often put too much focus on the topical products we use, rather than taking a closer look at our diet. The foods you eat directly affect the condition of your skin. This is why we tend to breakout after eating too much sugar or oily foods.
The Best Food For Sagging Skin
Now that your skin is mature, acne may not be your biggest concern but sagging skin is. If you’re experiencing sagging skin -- whether that be prematurely or from the natural process of aging -- it can be beneficial to eat more citrus fruits.
Eating citrus friends, especially in the morning, can make sure your body, and more specifically your skin, is getting the essential vitamins and nutrients it needs. Citrus fruits contain nutrients that can leave your skin looking younger and more supple.
Citrus fruits include oranges, lemons, grapefruit, pomelo, and limes. They’re packed with vitamin C, which is a powerful anti-aging ingredient that can often be found in most of your anti-aging beauty products.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps keep your skin looking younger.
“Like all antioxidants, vitamin C can help fight free radicals from all environmental aggressors, like pollution, and sun damage,” says dermatologist Dennis Gross.
