The Superfood Skincare Guide to Glowing Skin
From honey to kale and antioxidant-packed fruit extracts, superfood-infused skincare could be the key to a glowing complexion.
The ingredients on some skincare products sound more like the recipe for a smoothie than a beauty product. Kale, berries, avocado, acai – the list of superfoods keeps growing and so does their popularity, not just in the health industry but also in the world of beauty. It turns out these foods aren’t just good for your health, they’re great for your skin, too.
Superfoods work wonders for the skin as they are packed with vitamins, fatty acids and antioxidants, which work to enrich, repair and protect the skin from damaging free radicals.
If you’re looking to improve your complexion by feeding it with nutrient-rich skincare, here are our favourite superfood-charged products to try.
