Not just Oranges: Dose of Vitamin C

When I think of Vitamin C, the first thing that comes to my mind is probably oranges. Perhaps yours too.  That’s not even the only way to get Vitamin C through, but yeah I think of oranges first.

I try to add the benefits of Vitamin C in my diet and skin care!

We know that Vitamin C is good for our immune system. Now while, It  is no proof it helps prevent colds (or coronavirus,)  I still do not need a weak immune system! I still need my daily dose of Vitamin C.

Vitamin C do not last in your system, so it needs to be taken on a daily basis.

Your skin looks so much brighter by adding Vitamin C to it. Facts.

I get my dose in my doing a few of these things

Different Colors

As we already know Oranges have vitamin C, but so do strawberries, grapefruit, lemon, pineapples, chili peppers etc. In the morning, I usually have a glass of Orange Juice. At nighttime, I reach for a glass of grapefruit juice. It definitely does not matter the time of the day, but for some reason that seems to be what I do. (Not like it’s a magic formula with the timing)

I’m all about blending and juicing too. If I come home late, it is just easier for me to blend up some spinach with any sort of berries and bananas. Adding a citrus dressing to your salad helps too. Citrus pairs good with Kale.  Carry fruits and veggies as a snack. I actually carry plum tomatoes with me. (Listen, I really like tomatoes)

Try a new fruit too. When I travel, I love trying a fruit I couldn’t find so easily in the states. Since I won’t be traveling anytime soon, due to the world being in shambles right now. I’m relying on the supermarkets. Whole Foods always seems to have fresh fruit from other countries.

Mask It

Serums and masks are the easiest ways to get Vitamin C on your skin. I especially like this nectar mask from Fresh. It smells so good!  This one from Etsy looks bomb too!  I also will be adding this to my skin care. This is a great time to support a small business if you can. To my D, I. Y’s babies out there. Take a look at this.  Putting on a mask while you are cooking, dancing, or just watching YouTube will get the job done.

Thank you for reading, and please, please please be safe.
