After a particularly hot summer, fall is finally here! If your Instagram feed looks anything like mine, it's pretty apparent due to the abundance of autumn leaves, boots and chunky sweater posts.

A pear a day will keep the doctor away... or at least some wrinkles. Why? Pears contain fiber and Vitamin C, that not only help regulate your sugar level but also keep a steady level of collagen. This helps fight the early onset of wrinkles as well as keep your skin looking plump. Additionally, pears have lactic acid which helps smooth skin and retain moisture. Here’s a list of pear infused skin care products that’ll keep you looking good inside and out.
Last, but certainly not least, are passion fruits. Though uncommon, if you can find passion fruits in your grocery store, definitely pick them up. They are incredibly tasty around this time of the year. Furthermore, they do a great job at lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels which heighten circulation throughout the body. The same vitamins that allow for these great side effects - like beta carotene - also allow for the growth and reproductions of skin cells, which will keep your skin healthy and glowing. Here is a great recipe for a passion fruit face mask.
