Summers bring with them hundred skin woes—acne, blemish, sun-tanning and so on. However, following a good skincare routine and opting for summer skin-friendly ingredients can go a long way in fighting these nagging issues. Here are five skin foods you must use.


While Vitamin C is great for your skin throughout the year, it is especially beneficial in the summer months because exposure to the sun, sweat, air conditioning can wreak havoc on your skin.

Try to include citrus fruits in your diet. They are rich in Vitamin C, an antioxidant that prevents hyper-pigmentation, protects the skin from UV damage, and stimulates collagen synthesis. You can look for skincare products that contain citrus fruit (lemon/orange) extracts.

Tea Tree

Although tea tree oil has been used in beauty products for centuries, it has recently become more popular for its many skin benefits. Packed with anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and anti-microbial properties, this wonder oil can help you fight acne.


This age-old beauty remedy will never go out of vogue. It is great for oily skin, which is more prone to acne. Neem is also rich in antioxidants, which help boost collagen production and delay skin ageing.

Green Tea

This miracle tea is not just great for your health but also fabulous for your skin. Rich in antioxidants, green tea can also help control excess sebum (oil) production in the skin, thereby reducing acne and pimples.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera gel can work wonders on your skin. It not only helps soothe an inflamed skin, but also helps fight acne. Aloe vera can help gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin, removing excess oil without causing dryness.
