You may have had guava juice or consumed something guava flavored, but have you ever thought of putting guava on your face? Guava is known to have several health benefits such as aiding digestion, lowering blood sugar levels, and boosting heart health. However, guava also has several benefits for your skin!
Usually, when people think of vitamin C, they think of oranges. Well, did you know that guavas contain more than four times the amount of vitamin C in an orange? Not only is vitamin C good for your immune system, but it also helps combat harmful free radicals that can cause damage and premature aging of the skin. The vitamin C in guavas also help to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin, leaving you with a fresh and youthful radiance.
In addition to vitamin C, guavas also have as much potassium as a banana! Potassium is a key electrolyte in our diets, but it also helps keep the lipids in our skin organized and in proportion to help retain moisture. Guavas also have several bioactive antioxidants that protect against oxidative stressor that cause dark spots, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture.
So now you may be wondering, how should I incorporate guava into my skincare routine? With guavas in season this spring, it is the perfect time to do so!
