Superfoods & Skin: 5 Superfood Ingredients To Boost Skin Health

Superfoods & Skin: 5 Superfood Ingredients To Boost Skin Health

You鈥檝e probably heard the term superfoods kicking around in the last couple of years 鈥 and there鈥檚 a very good reason why. 鈥淪uperfoods鈥 are a range of different edible ingredients that have a high concentration of nutrients (also called nutrient density). Everything from a莽a铆 berries to baobab fruit extract can be found on this list 鈥 and there are far too many of them for a single blog.

In today鈥檚 post, we鈥檙e going to take a look at some of the best superfoods for skin health and why they make healthy skincare ingredients. We鈥檒l also answer a common question: are superfoods good for your skin?

So, Are Superfoods Good For Your Skin?

The answer to this question mostly depends on the superfood in question. Generally speaking, superfoods have high concentrations of critical nutrients and minerals that can be very good for our skin. However, many superfoods are simply better taken internally than used topically. All things considered, there are many superfoods that do have plenty of benefits when used topically, and we鈥檙e going to go over several that we use here at Rejuvaskin.

Five Great Superfoods For Skin Health:

Let鈥檚 take a look at 5 of our favorite superfoods!

Avocado Extract

It鈥檚 no secret that plant extracts can have amazing impacts on skin health. Avocado extract is no exception, and it brings its own set of unique benefits to the table. Here at Rejuvaskin, we use avocado in our Facial Moisturizer and Eye Cream due to its incredible ability to lock in moisture and relieve inflammation.

Coffee Extract

Coffee touts more than just caffeine 鈥 it鈥檚 actually a powerhouse of antioxidants! We don鈥檛 hear as much about the antioxidants in coffee because they tend to get eliminated due to the high temperatures used to brew your morning cuppa. However, when extracted using careful techniques, coffee extract can be extremely beneficial to the skin. We even use it in our Facial Moisturizer, Face Serum, and Eye Cream (our entire Dermacosmetics Bundle).

Watermelon Extract

Watermelon, though it might seem like there isn鈥檛 a high nutrient density, actually contains some very useful skincare applications. This fruit is rich in C and B vitamins and lycopene 鈥 an antioxidant. We include this extract in our Facial Moisturizer and Eye Cream.

Lentil Extract

Lentils might seem plain and incredibly boring 鈥 they鈥檙e just a legume, after all. However, lentils are actually another potent, antioxidant-rich superfood. We love these little legumes, so lentils have made their way into our Facial Moisturizer and Eye Cream.

Tea Extracts

We also love using white and green tea extracts because 鈥 you guessed it 鈥 they鈥檙e a potent source of antioxidants! The extracts we use contain much more antioxidant power than your average cup of tea. You鈥檒l find white and green tea extracts in our Face Serum.

And So Many More!

However, the list doesn鈥檛 stop here. We鈥檝e also used natural retinoids and superfood ingredients like baobab extract, kakadu plum extract, sea fennel, bakuchiol, and more.聽

Here at Rejuvaskin, we are always on the hunt for all-natural, plant ingredients that help your skin replenish and protect the skin barrier 鈥 improving overall skin health.
