A Cantaloupe a Day Keeps the Wrinkles Away

I recently saw on a blog I read (which I cannot remember whose blog it was -- so sorry) that eating half a cantaloupe every morning is GREAT for your skin! She had been doing it for about a week and saw some amazing results. Great skin?! Yes, please! A little research here I come...

** Cantaloupe melon has a high-water content and anti-oxidants that can work wonders for your complexion, creating clear, pore-less, radiant skin. Consider how many expensive, topical, Vitamin C products you see the lining store shelves every day. The reason these products are in high demand is because Vitamin C is proven to help skin defy age while improving tone, texture and radiance. Now, if applying Vitamin C externally gets good results, just imagine what taking Vitamin C internally can do?!

** Vitamin C – over 100% daily recommended value of that, too. Yep. Cantaloupes are ridiculously high in vitamin C, as well. We know vitamin C helps protect against illness – on so many levels – and it’s also a hard worker (on the skin) at reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

I'm sure y'all have heard of Cindy Crawford's line right?! WELL girls...do you KNOW what the main ingredient is?? Yep...a melon!

** "The most talked about ingredient in the Meaningful Beauty product line is an antioxidant from a rare form of "cantaloupe charentais," a melon grown only in the southern region of France. According to the Meaningful Beauty research, this melon contains a powerful first-generation antioxidant, which helps reduce the breakdown of collagen."

I just started this morning because I finally had a chance to hit up the grocery store... so here is my 1/2 this morning! It really filled me up! :) I'll let y'all know how its going in about a week! :)
