The One Fruit Dermatologists Say You Should STOP Eating Because It Ages You

Everyone knows that fruit and vegetables make up a healthy, nutrient-rich diet, but that’s not to say that every item in the produce section will have a positive impact on your skin.

In fact, there's evidence to support that certain fruits can lead to certain skincare conditions, especially those that are more acidic. These fruits can include lemon, lime, grapes, pomegranate, grapefruit, and blueberries. 


Annie Chiu, a dermatologist in California, says that this is because the fruit's acidic juices can affect the pH levels in the skin, leading to concerns like dryness, irritation and redness, and breakouts. "Changing the pH of the skin temporarily can disrupt the natural barriers of the skin," she tells Allure.

Do you suspect that acidic fruits could be contributing to your skincare woes? Try swapping those out for fruits with lower pH levels, or, cutting them into small pieces when you can to prevent the juice from coming in contact with your skin.
