The secret to glowing, gorgeous skin is not in your vanity case, but actually in your diet!
Eating guava, papaya, pineapple, kiwi and other Vitamin C rich tropical fruits will help protect your skin from damaging free radicals, replenish your skin, and help your body produce collagen, leaving your skin firm and elastic.
Black tea, made from the same leaves as green tea contains ten times more anti-oxidants than those found in fruits and vegetables. However, researchers have found that by adding milk to black tea, it reduces the levels of anti-oxidants. Therefore, for maximum benefits of black tea, drink it straight up, without adding any milk or sugar.
Black tea also works wonders when applied directly to the skin’s surface. In addition to being strong in anti-oxidants, black tea is also rich in Vitamin E and C, which is beneficial in fighting free radicals and can prevent premature ageing. Black tea is also a great astringent which is hugely valuable in battling puffy eyes, spots and blemishes.
