Beauty Food of the Season – Oranges!

Delicious, juicy, and colorful! Indulge yourself this season with oranges.

Oranges are mostly known as being a good source of Vitamin C, tasting good and having positive health benefits. However, Did you know that oranges are also one of the most important natural skin-care products?

Why are they good for your skin?

Oranges contain Vitamin A and C, phytonutrients, potassium, folate, fibre, and calcium.  Oranges toning properties improve your skin texture and color.  Both Vitamin C and citric acid in oranges restore collagen in your body.

  • Antioxidant – Protect skin cells from free radical damage
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Helps build the immune system
  • Plays a key role in the formation of collagen which is the support system of your skin (Collagen is what we want after our fraxel treatment and basically we want it all the time)

When are they the best?

  • Seasonal Naval oranges harvested  October-February
  • Seasonal Temple oranges harvested  Feb-March
