Vegetables in skincare are nothing new….. but it is becoming a huge new trend!
Using superfoods in skincare have huge benefits, just as they do if you eat them!!

  • high sources of anti-oxidants
  • natural vitamin C
  • packed with minerals & fatty acids

All these will protect skin from free radicals & environnemental stressors that irritate and inflame skin, causing premature aging.

EXAMPLES

  • carrots for vitamin A, C and antioxidants that give glowing skin
  • Kale for dark circles and brightening skin with vitamin A, B, C & K
  • Lettuce to prevent dark spots, stimulates collagen and promotes skin cell turnover with Vit C & E
  • Cucumber to soothe and reduce puffiness
  • Tomatoe for lycopene which repairs damaged skin, brightens, relieves irritations and reduces excess oil
