The Beauty of Oranges

Oranges are one of my favorite fruits!  They are delicious, juicy and sweet!

They are a great source of Vitamin C which is a building block for collagen that helps keep skin firm and young-looking!  They are also high in Folic acid which is important for brain function and the production of healthy red blood cells.

Oranges are another great source of antioxidants as well!  Remember how important those are??  They also boost the immune system to help keep you healthy during these upcoming winter months!

Next time you’re craving something sweet, reach for an orange!  🙂

The Beauty of Cucumbers

Cucumbers are a great addition to your beauty diet – they are high in vitamin C, vitamin A, and a good source of silica.  Silica is one of the building blocks of collagen.  Collagen keeps skin looking young and fresh.  Cucumbers are also high in water, so eat up to stay beautiful and hydrated!

Cucumbers are also a well-known treatment for puffy eyes!  Place a slice of cucumber over each eye for 5-10 minutes to help de-puff!  The high water content makes them feel very cool and soothing to the sensitive under-eye area!
