Citrus Fruits

Your skin needs vitamin C to produce collagen for more elasticity, a smoother appearance and fewer lines. Research has found that a diet that lacks the nutrient can lead to more wrinkles. And because vitamin C is also a natural antioxidant, it protects the skin from the damaging effects of the sun;  stress and pollution and helps even out skin tone. Along with classic citrus fruits like oranges, mandarins and lemons, others, include berries, cantaloupes, kiwis, mangoes and papayas, are excellent sources. To absorb the max amount of the vitamin, pair these vitamins C-centric fruits with iron-rich foods like spinach and beans.
