Inner and Outer Skin Wellness
The health of our skin is dependent on many factors from intrinsic factors such as genetics and extrinsic facts including your lifestyle, diet and topical products. And so in order to maintain healthy looking and feeling skin, it’s important to curate a skincare routine using nutritious topical products, whilst also ensuring that your diet consists of a variety of fresh, cold-pressed superfoods.
Superfoods are fruits and vegetables that are filled with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that promote health and well-being. They’re nutritionally dense and good for your body, and your skin. Due to the vibrant colours of fruits and vegetables they all offer varying holistic benefits for your inner and outer wellbeing.
Let’s take a closer look at Superfoods and what they bring to your skin health and overall wellbeing.
Broccoli is packed full of nutrients like magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, selenium and fibre. Being rich in fibre when eaten broccoli helps to flush out toxins from the body, whilst helping to foster a healthy microbiome in the gut.
When it comes to your skincare broccoli seed oil is essential as it is rich in omega essential fatty acids. Omega essential fatty acids are healthy fats that help to keep the skin moisturised, soft and supple. They act as building blocks in the skin cells, strengthening the skin's surface layers for a healthier complexion.
Watermelon is made up of 92% of water, it is also rich in an amino acid called citrulline. Citrulline helps to widen your blood vessels, allowing more oxygen to enter your blood. An increased amount of oxygen in your blood, boosts your energy and supports your immune system.
In skincare citrulline helps to condition and soften the skin, it has antioxidant properties that protect skin from environmental stressors (i.e. pollution) and premature ageing.
Aloe Vera is rich in antioxidants which help fight free radical damage and encourage clear, glowing skin. Free radical damage can cause oxidative stress, this can negatively impact the skin layers. Physically free radical damage shows up as fine lines, dullness, and an increase in age spots.
This nutrient rich superfood also contains twenty amino acids (including all eight essential amino acids), at least nine minerals i.e., calcium, sodium, iron, potassium, zinc, chromium, magnesium, manganese and copper, and several vitamins, including B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, A, C, E, folic acid, and choline. A plant-based powerhouse of vitamins and minerals that boost your body’s immune system, soothes internal inflammation, and may help with digestive issues.
Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, a compound the body changes into vitamin A which helps to promote healthy vision, balance blood sugar and help with weight management. Beta-carotene is also responsible for carrot’s vibrant orange pigment.
Carrots are also rich in a powerful antioxidant called lycopene. Numerous studies have highlighted the beneficial effects of lycopene which include supporting gut health, cholesterol balance and heart health.
In skincare lycopene found in carrot seed oil soothes and heals dry or sensitive skin and helps to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Pineapple is rich in bromelain an enzyme that aids digestion by helping to break down foods. Bromelain, derived from the stem and fruit of the pineapple, is a combination of proteolytic enzymes which break down proteins, resulting in a variety of therapeutic benefits for the body.
When used in skincare Bromelain reduces inflammation on the skin and breaks down proteins that cause build-up, evening out skin texture.
