Pineapple is a great source of Vitamin C, which is important for a number of reasons.

Of course, everyone knows its great to boost your immune system, but Vitamin C is needed for the production of Collagen and for the growth and repair of tissues, so its great for your skin.

Bonus…the enzymes in the Pineapple are good for your tummy and digestion.

Also working  on the skin front…Cucumbers!

They are well known for being one of the best foods for maintaining healthy skin, being exceptionally rich in hydrating fluids, and improving anti-oxidant levels in the body to help inhibit inflammation.
