Avocado is our number one food for your skin, its rich in vitamin E which is very good for promoting a supple healthy skin, Avocado also has properties that will help protect your skin from sun damage that causes wrinkles.
Strawberries and other berries
Rich in vitamin C and other beneficial minerals, vitamin C is very important for your skin and that’s why there are so many Vitamin C serums out there today. This Vitamin is responsible for building collagen which is crucial for the strength of your skin.
