Strawberry Recipes for Smoother Skin

Enjoy vitamin-C-rich strawberries in these sweet and savory recipes.

Strawberries are a favorite summer fruit—and they’re super-nutritious too. Just 1 cup of strawberries has a respectable 3 grams of fiber and more than a full day’s recommended dose of vitamin C. Eating more vitamin-C-rich foods, such as strawberries, may help to ward off wrinkles and age-related dryness, suggests research from 2007 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Vitamin C’s skin-smoothing effects may be due to its ability to mop up free radicals produced from ultraviolet rays and also its role in collagen production, which helps keeps skin firm.
