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 Lemons

What do you do when life hands you lemons?

Make lemon-water!

Lemons are a great source of vitamin C that helps to keep skin looking smooth and young.

I start every morning with a glass of lemon water.  No sugar, just the juice of one lemon and enough water to fill the cup.  Lemon water has some amazing health benefits that you can read more about here.  It’s one of my secrets for healthy, glowing skin!

Want to double your benefits??

Dip a lemon that has already been squeezed into a small bowl of sugar, then apply this in circular motions onto clean skin.  Let it sit for 10-15 minutes and rinse.  Your skin will feel soft and fresh!
