The Ingredients are Avocado, Spinach, Banana and Pineapple.
Let’s quickly review, why these specific foods are great for healthy skin:
Avocados have remarkable skin benefits, they are like the holy grail for your skin! Avocado contains lots of good fat that help collagen production, keeping skin looking younger and healthy. It’s also rich in vitamins A, D and E, copper and iron. Avocados also help to keep the skin hydrated.
Spinach is rich in antioxidants and nutrients. It’s loaded with vitamins B, C, and E, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids, making it a Skin Superfood!
Pineapples are a good source of vitamins B-1 and B-6, copper, magnesium and dietary fiber. Pineapples are also rich source of bromelain, which is an enzyme with strong anti-inflammatory properties. This enzymes helps keep the skin clear by fighting and helping to prevent breakouts.
Bananas contain significant amounts of vitamin C and B6 which plays vital role in maintaining the elasticity of the skin. They also contain antioxidants and manganese. Because bananas have such a high natural water content (about 75%) they help hydrate the skin and prevents it from drying and peeling.
