Skin care in the produce aisle.Skin Care in the Produce Aisle
You probably aren't used to thinking about your skin while cruising down the produce aisle of your local grocery store. However, the very same fruits that make our bodies healthy when eaten can also greatly improve the appearance of our skin when applied topically.

Fruits are packed with beneficial vitamins and antioxidants that combat the effects of environmental and internal stressors which wreak havoc on our skin every day, causing it to weaken and age. Fruits can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in addition to diminishing unsightly brown spots. Often found in exfoliants and peels, natural fruit acids lift away dull, dead skin cells to reveal softer, smoother skin. Those with oily, acneic skin can also benefit from the astringent and exfoliating properties of certain fruits.

To make it easy for you to find products containing beneficial fruit extracts, we have put together a list of fruits common to skin care products along with an explanation of the benefits and a product sampling.

Lemon (Citrus Medica Limonum)

Lemon is a great natural astringent for oily and acne prone skin. The fruit acids tighten pores to reduce oil and clarify the skin. Lemon is also used as a natural skin lightener as it brightens the complexion and helps to minimize discoloration due to age, sun exposure and blemishes.
