Do you have dry or oily skin? Do you have skin in need of a little extra something? You could be lacking something from your diet or skincare routine. Many Dermatologists believe that our diet plays a huge role in the overall condition of our skin. Read on to find out about the top 5 superfoods recommended by dermatologists for better skin!
1. Nuts and Seeds
Nuts are bursting with healthy vitamins and minerals such as Zinc, Copper and Vitamin A, C and E. Nuts are a must in your regime if you desire naturally radiant skin. Almonds have fatty acids and loads of Vitamin E. Vitamin E aids dry skin because it has a lot of moisture. Applying almond oil or milk can be very beneficial as it protects the skin from sun damage. Try our Almond Alfresco Hand and Body Lotion. It has Jojoba oil and Shea butter perfect for those days when your skin feels extra dry.
2. Chai (Vanilla & Lavender)
These things are amazing when used together. Lavender has soothing properties, and it helps promote healthy skin. Vanilla calms itchy and irritated skin. Chai is the superstar of the mix as it helps to reduce inflammation and regulate blood flow. This is important because issues like fine lines and wrinkles pop up when your body has poor blood circulation. Chai also reverses damage caused by sun rays. Use our Lavender Vanilla Chai Hair & Body Souffle to gain the benefits that Chai, Vanilla and Lavender can provide!
3. Citrus Fruits
Citrus fruits are essential because they contain high levels of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is known to destroy free radicals that roam in your body. So all you’re left with is even glowing skin. Our Lemon Tea Tree Bamboo Black Soap is a citrusy cleanser that will wash away any toxins and impurities that your skin may have.
Strawberries have the power to fight off oily skin without stripping it of the moisture it needs. Strawberries have antioxidants that will naturally even out the skin tone and reduce the look of blemishes. The Japanese Kumquat Artisan Soap Bar has strawberry seeds that will gently exfoliate dead skin cells.
5. Bamboo Clay Mask
Not a superfood but that doesn't take away from the strength bamboo and clay have. Bamboo helps to lock in moisture and clay is good for detoxifying the skin. Our Bamboo Clay Clarifying Facial Bar reaches deep into your skin to attract all the yucky stuff and keeps your skin clear!
