Still, while you may not find it possible to spend an adequate amount of time every morning and evening indulging in your skincare routine, there is a way to get the necessary nutrients.

Apples

An apple a day that keeps the doctor away also keeps away beauticians and dermatologists. In general, apples contain so-called malic acid that helps with rejuvenating the skin cells from the inside. Also, apples are rich in fiber. In that respect, their consumption improves the bowel movement, which leads to a brighter and more youthful skin appearance. Not to mention that these are pretty easy to store and bring with you when you need a healthy snack.

 

 

Bananas

Another perfect snack option that’s very easy to carry and peel is undoubtedly a banana. But, bananas are also great when it comes to boosting the healthy look of your skin. Potassium as well as vitamins A, B and E that can be found in a banana keep the skin moisturized and elastic. If you have a habit of eating bananas daily, you can also see a significant difference when it comes to dark spots and their effective fading.

Kiwi fruits

If you’re in need of some immune system booster, make sure to eat a lot of kiwi fruits. There’s no other food with higher concentration of vitamin C than this fruit. While it’s overall beneficial for your general health, a kiwi fruit also makes the skin more radiant and postpones aging. If you don’t like to consume a kiwi fruit on its own, toss it in a blender and make a healthy smoothie that would fill you up with the necessary energy for the start of your day.
