With its incredible antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties and ability to encourage radiant skin, pomegranate has been incorporated into skin care; especially anti-aging and sun care products. It can help with a number of skin care issues that women of color can face, including dry skin, age spots, hyperpigmentation, acne flare-ups and acne scars.
A compound in pomegranate may help reduce the breakdown of collagen, the protein that gives skin its useful vitality – and prevents wrinkling and sagging.
One word of warning. Only use pomegranate extract in conjunction with your regular sun protection. Pomegranate extract is not a substitute for sunscreen, but it may offer some additional protection against skin aging that a sunscreen can’t provide.

Vitamin C is extremely beneficial for your skin; keeping it strong and youthful. Your skin needs vitamin C to produce collagen, one of the main structural building blocks within your skin.
Acerola Cherries supply an ample amount of vitamin C so that your skin has the ability to produce collagen quickly and efficiently. This will help your skin stay firm, tight, and wrinkle free
A German study found that lycopene-rich tomato paste helped participants prevent sunburn when they combined it with olive oil, daily for ten weeks. Besides being a great source of the antioxidant lycopene, tomatoes are considered a high-carotenoid fruit. These nutrients may help slow down cellular damage from free radicals.
Mangoes have more than 80% of your daily requirements for vitamin A, which is why they’re such a great face food. Vitamin A maintains and repairs skin cells; a deficiency will result in a dry, flaky complexion.
As an antioxidant, vitamin A also fights free radical damage that can prematurely age the skin. And with fewer than 70 calories per serving, this succulent fruit is the perfect pick for your figure, not just your face.
A good source of biotin, avocados help to prevent dry skin and brittle hair and nails. When applied topically, they can hydrate parched skin.
