One Vitamin that is essential for the skin’s good health is vitamin C. Oranges and grape fruits have Vitamin C, but they do not compare to strawberries. The vitamin hinders free radicals that damage skin cells and initiates collagen production that makes the skin firm. Collagen acts as an anti-aging component thereby limiting wrinkle formations on the face. In addition, strawberries have anti-oxidants that help repair damaged skin cells. To experience a better-hydrated and smooth skin, include strawberries in your diet.
