Mangoes – Summer comes and so does the season of Mangoes. Rich in beta carotene, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and fibre, they provide a good boost of antioxidants to the body. Vitamin A and beta carotene play an important role in skin differentiation and well being.

Lemon – Sure, we all love to sip gallons of lemonade every summer. Not to fear, lemon is rich in vitamin C which is again a wonderful antioxidant. Indeed this could add to the extra glow on your face when you insist for a dash of lime in your drink by the beach (beware you may want to keep the alcohol and sugars low and use enough sunscreen).

Papaya – Your breakfast cannot be complete this summer without a bowl of cooled cut or sliced papaya. Because papaya has it all, fibre to keep your tummy healthy and acne in check, vitamin A and C for their antioxidant and skin rejuvenating role and micronutrients and minerals for keeping your nails and hair strong and shiny.

Beetroot – You could make some amazing coolers with beetroots, carrots and tomatoes and keep sipping them. Beetroot has a sumptuous dose of B-complex vitamins and minerals. This not only boosts our immune system but fills in our nutrient reserves in the body, all of which will help you have good skin, hair and nails.

Watermelon - This is indeed one of the most refreshing summer fruits. It has high water content and keeps the body and skin hydrated. It has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids too. It is high in fibre and fills your stomach early helping you consume less of junk food. So it’s also good for those wanting to lose weight.
