Helps in anti-ageing

Lychees are rich in Vitamin C, which help turn back the skin clock. Vitamin C helps form collagen, which smoothens fine lines and wrinkles. So if you’ve been worried about your skin looking saggy due to all the stress and environmental contaminants, eating lychees could be the way to wrinkle-free skin.

Fights free radicals

Vitamin B and C have the ability to fight free radicals which break down the collagen and affect the regular functioning of skin cells. The Vitamin B and C content in lychees saves the skin from oxidation and the damaging effect of free radicals that can affect your skin’s age and texture.

Heals the skin

Lychees contain copper and niacin (Vitamin B3). While small quantities of copper can heal damaged the skin, niacin helps the skin stay hydrated by improving the skin’s natural barrier and allows the skin to retain its moisture. Who would’ve known that?

Makes hair strong

The Vitamin C in lychees ensures that your hair follicles get ample supply of blood thus increasing the scalp’s microcirculation. This process makes the hair grow faster and stronger. So the next time you visit the fruit vendor, don’t forget to buy some lychees that’ll do magic to your skin and hair!
