However, sometimes fresh fruit can be hard to get hold of and it doesn’t keep very well, or travel very well! So, what’s the solution I hear you cry!

But not all dried fruit (or fresh fruit) is equal. What are the best dried fruits for healthy skin? We’ve put the list below together to help you out.
