Have you looked at the ingredients of your skincare products before?
With the hype of ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ we’re seeing more and more food groups within skincare products, making them good enough to eat!
We’ve outlined some of the most common foods (or drinks) you may find in your skincare products:
Green tea provides a number of health benefits when consumed or applied externally. Research indicates that topical skin formulations of green tea can reduce sun damage by reducing inflammation rather than blocking UV rays.
We always suggest you use sunscreen (as well as physical protection) and stay out of the sun during the hottest part of the day.
Green tea is especially rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a polyphenol that research has shown can improve acne and oily skin. And it is why Green tea is a key ingredient within our SkinB5™ Acne Control Cleansing Mousse, Moisturiser as well as our Australian Botanicals formulas.
This brightly coloured fruit is popping up in skincare products everywhere!
High in antioxidants, pomegranate is known specifically for sun protection and for anti-ageing. Pomegranate also firms the skin by promoting collagen and elastin production. Did you know, organic pomegranate is one of the 63 incredibly nutritious ingredients in the SkinB5™ Clear Skin Superfood Booster.
Carrots are high in Vitamin A and beta-carotene, which are essential for skin health.
Vitamin A helps to maintain healthy skin (and teeth), also promoting good vision. The darker orange a carrot is, the more nutrients it has stored. And that is why we have added Organic Carrot Juice Powder in the SkinB5™ Clear Skin Superfood Booster.
This is a short glimpse into some of the food groups you may commonly find in your skincare products, but don’t forget all of these foods are high in nutrients and can also work from the inside out so tuck in!
