Gorgeous Glowing Skin

Skin damage/aging – as we age we lose the flexibility of collagen & elastin in the skin. This is when things start to drop & wrinkles appear. Dam it! However antioxidants are our knights in shining armour! Antioxidants Vit A,C & E can limit this damage, hurrah!

Dry skin – without enough essential fatty acids skin will dry out quickly and lose its plumpness. So a glug of a nutty banana will go a long way to keep skin soft.
