Perhaps one of the better-known supplements for skin care is vitamin C. It helps repair damaged skin, sets off a natural glow, and smoothens lines. Vitamin C is pretty much a holy grail for beauty enthusiasts. Do you know what fruit is full of vitamin C? Oranges! Scroll down to find out what orange benefits you can get for your skin.

Oranges Ease Redness and Inflammation

Who knew a little orange can take that redness off? Kidding aside, a study in Humanitas University reveals that apart from being heavy in vitamin C, orange benefits include high levels of anthocyanins. Experts believe these pigments are anti-inflammatory and that ingesting oranges can help combat diseases with prolonged inflammation, such as diabetes, arthritis, and some cancers. Topically, it can reduce redness.

The catch? Anthocyanins are more prevalent in blood oranges, a variety that's not so common in the Philippines.

Oranges Contain More Than Vitamin C

What even regular oranges do have in abundance are carotenoids, particularly beta-carotene. Your body can convert this into vitamin A, another skin superstar. Vitamin A stimulates collagen production, manages breakouts, evens skin tone, and promotes overall skin health. Don’t eat too much though. Overconsumption of beta carotene can also turn your skin orange.

Oranges Rank High in An

A Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry study looked at the health benefits of fresh orange juice and learned that the beloved breakfast drink boasted an array of potent antioxidants, such as flavonoids, carotenoids, and vitamin C, as well as other beneficial phytochemicals, such as folate. Antioxidants resist the free radicals that cause cellular damage which, in turn, initiate many common skin problems, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots.

Oranges Have Cleansing Properties

Some less popular orange benefits are its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. A study in Food Science pitted orange oil against lemon oil and two antibiotics. The results show the orange oil's effectivity against gram-negative bacterial cultures and fungal yeasts. A 2015 article in BMC Chemistry reveals a similar conclusion – orange essential oil can inhibit pathogenic organisms.

Orange Brings Out Your Skin’s Glow

The team of vitamin C and A makes oranges a big name when it comes to achieving that healthy glow. Vitamin C is essential in brightening the skin while vitamin A helps stimulate blood flow to your face, giving you that naturally radiant look.
