Whether it’s working from an office or work from home, mornings are always as busy as a beaver. Due to this our morning skincare routine sometimes takes a back seat. Little do we know that it only takes one scrumptious plate of fruit every morning for healthy and glowing skin.
These power-packed fruit combos are filled with essential skin vitamins, which level up your skincare routine in a jiffy. Different combinations fulfil different needs so find out which plate is yours.
Plate Full of Antioxidants – Fig + Red Grapes + Pomegranate
Ageing goals! That’s what this antioxidant and mineral-rich plate makes people exclaim when they see it.
Pomegranates and Red Grapes are brilliant sources of potent antioxidants and anti-ageing properties. These Red gems combat signs of ageing and reverse free-radical skin damage.
Similarly, Figs aren’t just a delicious snack – they are full of vital skin vitamins – C, A, E and K. So, if you want to age gracefully, squeeze a couple of them into your morning breakfast plate.
A Plate for Detoxification – Goji berry + Watermelon + Lemon
Detoxification means getting rid of all or majority of toxins from the body – which cannot be done without the help of foods that will hydrate and push toxins out of the system. And more hydration means a softer and glowing skin.
With its 92% water content, Watermelon is one of the most refreshing fruits to begin your day with. It contains glutathione – a major detoxifying agent, besides being a rich source of skin vitamins A and C which not only aids in the detoxifying process but also helps to fight free radicals.
Goji berries – these cute little munchies are a mighty source of vitamins – A, B, C and E, iron and chlorine (chlorine? I don’t think that’s right). Our liver needs all of them for carrying out the detoxification process.
Squeeze in a few drops of lemon on this power-packed fruit plate to enhance the detoxification. You can also just add a drop or two in warm water first thing in the morning for a perfect body cleansing recipe, this will help the digestive system to get going.
Remember, good digestion is indispensable for clear and healthy skin.
The Beauty Plate – Blackberry + Papaya + Cantaloupe
Looking for something that will help not only your skin but also your hair? This is the plate for you.
Papaya is a natural moisturizing agent, with its richness in vitamins A, B and C. Having Papaya in the morning clears up constipation, which in turn helps in clearing up your skin.
Compliment it with some juicy Blackberries that fulfils the antioxidant requirements, completing your morning skincare routine with a delish delight.
For some more Vitamin A, add a few pieces of cantaloupe. It is a source of beta-carotene which gets converted into Vitamin A – making your skin glow and hair shinier.
Grapefruit, Kiwi, Strawberry and Orange are some of the other fruits packed with skin vitamins and antioxidants. Grapefruit especially boosts skin health as well as our overall immunity, due to its high content of Vitamin C and acidic properties.
It also has recently become a key ingredient in various skincare products and is a must in skin care routines for luminous and even-toned skin. If you’re looking for an antioxidant-rich skin care facial scrub or facial cleansers, the Pure Sense Grapefruit Revitalising Face Mask, Scrub and Cleanser be a perfect start to your morning skincare routine.
If you want an all rounded experience consisting of Grapefruit, our Rejuvenating Refreshing Grapefruit Body Mist is something you’ll fall in love with, given its exhilarating Grapefruit fragrance and antioxidant nourishment.
