Most of the nutrients crucial for skin health are available in fruits. In the next section, we will look at the top 20 fruits that can boost your skin health and keep it glowing.

Top 20 Fruits For Glowing Skin

Lemons are natural bleaching agents. They are rich in vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that helps flush out toxins and protects the skin from photodamage and hyperpigmentation (1).
