Drinking orange juice can make you more beautiful, according to a study by a panel of health and beauty experts. The research revealed that nutritionists and beauty experts now advise a daily glass of orange juice to improve skin, hair and nails. The panel of experts attribute the benefits to the vitamin C, potassium and folic acid it contains.

Essential nutrient- vitamin C
Vitamin C is essential in the production of collagen, along with super nutrient Lutein. Its yellow pigment is linked to reducing sun-induced skin damage and is believed to improve elasticity of the skin. A 200 ml glass of orange typically contains 60 mg vitamin C and equates to 100 per cent of an adult’s recommended daily amount. Antioxidants in orange prevents dehydration, premature ageing and pigmentation.

Anti-acne mask
Is your skin prone to acne? Try a mask of orange juice, lemon juice and mint. Leave it on for 30 minutes before rinsing it off with cold water. The citrus content in the mask will cleanse and unblock pores. It will also help shed dead skin cells, making it look radiant.

Add it to your regime
Nutritionist Amanda Ursell said, “The adage of ‘you are what you eat’ is not a new one but science has lagged behind in determining the effect nutrition has on our skin, hair and nails. Beauty experts are starting to see the benefits of a glass of this nutrient-packed product, realising it isn’t just what you put on your body but what you put into it too.”

According to research, two thirds of beauty professionals (65 per cent) say they recommend clients drink a glass a day as part of their current beauty routine for glowing skin and lustrous hair.
