June is Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month. What does this have to do with your appearance? More than you might suspect.
A diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables is, of course, one that can help you maintain results from procedures like liposuction, tummy tuck, and male breast reduction. Particularly when combined with other healthy eating habits and plenty of exercise, eating a variety of fresh produce can help you maintain optimal health, a steady weight, and a more toned physique.
But did you know consuming fresh fruits and vegetables can also help improve the appearance of your skin?
Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables offer several benefits for the skin, from helping to prevent premature aging to staving off acne. And while all fruits and vegetables are good, some of the best options for skin care include:
- Berries, including blueberries, blackberries, and gooseberries
- Yellow fruits and vegetables including squash, bell peppers, and apricots
- Orange fruits and vegetables such as carrots and cantaloupe
- Red fruits and vegetables including strawberries, raspberries, and tomatoes
- Dark, leafy greens like spinach, collard greens, turnip greens, and romaine lettuce
- Legumes such as beans, peas, and lentils
Farmers’ markets abound in and around Oklahoma City, giving you several opportunities to not only eat fresh foods but to support local family farms. Consider visiting one or more weekly to get the freshest produce and the most benefit for yourself and your community.
