Vitamin C has been proven to hold all sorts of benefits not only for our bodies but for our skin as well. As our skin is the largest organ in our bodies, and the only one exposed to the outside, we need to do everything that we can to maintain its youthful look. Adding Vitamin C rich foods to your diet can help your skin from the inside. Here are the top three foods that you should include in your everyday meals.

Rose Hips

Rose hips aren’t as popular when it comes to food additives as some other high content vitamin C foods. However, pound for pound rose hips pack a bigger vitamin C punch compared to foods such as citrus. Rose hips are the fruit of a rose bush. If you dead-head your roses, chances are that you have never seen these little powerhouses form. Leave your roses to die naturally, and you find a small, hard red fruit where the flower was.

Rose hips can be bought dried at health stores both in powdered form or whole.

How To Use Them:
  • Make a tea from 3 or four whole rose hips. Let them steep for a few minutes until the water has a rose color and a fragrant aroma. Add a drop of honey for sweetness.
  • Add to stews or slow cooker dishes for flavor and a vitamin C boost.
  • Add to smoothies. Soak the rosehips until soft. Use the liquid and the fruit in a smoothie with other beneficial ingredients such as kale, and blueberries.

Capsicums

Capsicums are the fruit of various plants, all related to chilies and bell peppers. They range in taste from sweet to incredibly spicy. The Ghost Chilly is one of the hottest chilies in the world and is chock full of vitamin C. Of course not everyone likes spicy foods, so you can get your dose from the milder fruits as well.

How To Use Them:
  • Add fresh capsicum to a salad for brightness and a nutrient boost.
  • Stuff half bell peppers with quinoa and goats cheese and bake until soft.
  • Blend fresh capsicum, fresh tomatoes, and herbs together for a delicious cold nutrient-dense soup.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables are al very high in vitamin C. Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, and kale all fall into this category. Both gently cooked and raw, these green nutrient bombs all provide essential antioxidants and vitamins to keep your skin healthy from the inside.

How To Use Them:
  • Roast cauliflower steaks in the oven with a touch of olive oil.
  • Add kale to salads and smoothies.
  • Add arugula to fresh meals, or make it into a pesto that you can use on pretty much anything.

Vit C From The Outside

A great way to deliver vitamin C directly to where it is needed most, such as the skin on your eyes, is to buy a wood quality skin product infused with it. These creams and essences deliver a punch of vitamin C into the lower layers of the skin, boosting collagen formation and creating an instant youthful look.
