We think skincare, and we think topical application - cleansers, toners, serums, creams - but what about the saying, "True beauty comes from within"? There's truth to it, and regardless of our genetic endowment, we can work to enhance our outer radiance by being more conscious of what we put into our bodies. The best part about this supplement to your traditional skincare routine? It's delicious! We've been turned on to three surprising foods that pack a punch in our regimen:
Kiwi: When we need a Vitamin C fix, our minds tend toward oranges and citrus. Did you know, though, that a cup of peeled kiwi contains even more Vitamin C than the same serving of an orange? It’s common knowledge that a heavy dose of Vitamin C gives your immune system a boost. We’re here to share that it’s also a natural skin brightener, helping to reduce the appearance of age spots and even fine lines (and why it's a key player in our Vibransea™ complex).
Oysters: Don’t just save them for date night. They may help put you in the mood, but they’ll also add a little something extra to your anti-aging regimen. Zinc has been touted as a major contributor to skin repair and renewal, and oysters boast a high content of the mineral.
Ginger: Next time you order sushi, ask for an extra helping of this root on the side. Many skin conditions, such as acne and rosacea, cause inflammation. Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties, reducing the redness and puffiness that generally comes hand in hand with common skin concerns.
The takeaway? You're investing money in the right products and time in a dedicated skincare regimen. The right foods enhance those efforts!
