The Juicy Plum

Do you like plums? Then here's some good news that will surely make you love the juicy fruit all the more. Beauty treatments prepared with plums provide stellar protection from the sun's damaging rays. Thanks to the fruit's vitamin A, an antioxidant that reverses UV damage by speeding the regeneration of surface skin cells. Experts say, a weekly plum facial can keep your skin looking young and fresh for years to come.

For a radiance-revealing mask, do this. In a food processor, blend 2 pitted, peeled plums and 1 egg white until smooth. Using your fingertips, gently apply mixture to face and let sit 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse skin thoroughly with cool water.

But that's not all, the plum can do so much more. A plum a day can reduce the appearance of spider veins. It's also packed with vitamin K that helps produce thrombin, a protein that thicken blood. According to Audrey Kunin, M. D., a dermatologist in Missourri, "The thicker blood is rerouted to larger healthy blood vessels, causing the damaged vessels that form spider veins to shrink." So savor one juicy plum a day to reduce appearance of these unsightly veins.
