The Summer Fruits You
Need For Glowing Skin
We at CIIN believe in consuming seasonal fruit at it’s natural time, it has also been proven that the closer the fruit is to your home, the healthier it is for you. So buy freshly-picked, local produce.
Although fruit is very good for you, it is best consumed on an empty stomach. Fruit is digested in 20 minutes, if it is your stomach with foods that need longer to digest (meat needs around 4 hours) the fruit will decay in your stomach. You know that stomach bloat? Fruits after a meal could be the culprit…
Watermelon is more than just a refreshing fruit to quench your thirst. It is rich in vitamin A, C and antioxidants, vital for skin health. Its high water content hydrates your body, resulting in radiant skin.
