With nearly 100% of your daily vitamin C needs – plus more beta carotene than any other melon – cantaloupe comes out on top for your skin. Antioxidant vitamin C scavenges free radicals while promoting skin cell turnover.

According to a study published in Free Radical Biology and Medicine, beta-carotene inhibited collagen breakdown and defended epithelial cells against the kind of ultraviolet radiation that can lead to wrinkles and age spots. Says study author Regina Goralczyk, “You could call beta-carotene a very gentle internal sun protector.”

Of course, cantaloupe is also a fragrant, juicy staple for savvy dieters – with only 46 calories per 1/4 melon.Try our Cantaloupe Bowl Soup for a refreshing summer treat that can help buffer your skin and satisfy your sweet tooth at the same time. Leftovers can be recycled to use as a lightweight, natural conditioner, as featured in this issue’s Dole Spa.
