You can count on fruits if you are prone to going down with the common cold or flu because they are very good at making the immune system strong, helping your body to defend itself against invading bacteria and viruses that cause all kinds of health problems.
Fruits are also excellent fighters of constipation, courtesy of the loads of fiber and water they contain.
Adding fruits to your diet on a regular basis may also help lower your risk of deadly cancer because they contain superb amounts of antioxidants. Similarly, consuming fruits may also help keep heart disease at bay.
Did you know that you may also employ fruits to look more unforgettable?
It’s no secret that certain fruits are acidic in nature, and that’s exactly the reason why they are exceptional fighters of dark-colored scars — they have the unique ability to breakdown high concentrations of melanin, resulting in the improvement of the appearance of those highly noticeable dark skin blemishes!
While there are so many scar-reducing products available at the local pharmacy or beauty store (and even on the net), it’s not always that they can deliver. In fact, some of them may cause you to face much bigger beauty problems because of the harsh chemicals they contain that can be associated with certain risks and side effects.
Still the best way to deal with dark scars is naturally, and such can be done with the help of certain fruits!
Without further ado, here are some of the fruits that you may count on if you feel less confident and attractive because of some horrendous dark scars:
There is no denying that lemon is something that you may rely on if you are pestered by dark scars. Regularly daubing freshly-squeezed lemon juice on blemishes can help make your skin look more flawless.
If you have sensitive skin, you may feel some stinging sensation. Worry not if it’s something that you cannot stand. That’s because you may simply dilute lemon juice with equal amounts of water before applying it on problem spots.
Definitely, orange juice is less acidic than lemon juice, making it perfect for people with sensitive skin. Despite of this, juice that is freshly obtained from an orange is an effective fighter of dark-colored scars. You may also gently rub a piece of orange peel (fleshy part facing down) on your scars on a regular basis for best results.
Another acidic fruit that you may count on if you want to zap those unsightly scars is strawberry. You may mash it with a fork and leave it on blemishes for several minutes before rinsing it off with water.
If you have really, really sensitive skin and it kind of hurts when you employ the acidic fruits mentioned above, all you have to do is turn to a very popular summer fruit: watermelon!
Applying the juice of watermelon on those dark-colored scars of yours causes no stinging sensation, which means that you may leave it in place for as long as possible so that you may obtain impressive results so much quicker!
One more sting-free fruit that you may employ for dealing with dark blemishes is papaya. Simply mash a small piece of it with a fork and leave it on your scars for several minutes. You may also use mashed papaya for lightening dark-colored areas of the body such as the elbows and knees.
Actually, tomato is a fruit because it grows from the ovary of a flower and it has seeds, and this is why adding it on this list of fruits that can help get rid of dark scars is perfectly fine. All you need to do is daub tomato juice on your scars on a regular basis, or you may also rub tomato slices on large areas of the body that are darkened.
One more vegetable that is actually a fruit is cucumber, which you may also employ for lightening dark-colored scars. The fact is cucumber is loaded with vitamin C, which makes it a superb scar eraser.
