Two fruits for healthy skin

We have a "skin clock," according to Joseph S. Takahashi, chairman of neuroscience at the university of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

"In his 2017 study, Takahashi and his team found that an enzyme that repairs UV-damaged skin, has a daily cycle of production that can be altered by eating food at unusual times," according to theepochtimes.com. Two foods that can help improve your skin's health are blueberries and watermelon.
