We’re on a mission to help you glow from the inside out. This not only includes the ingredients in your topical skincare products, but the ones you put into your body as well!
We’ve teamed up with True Botanicals to find out the top ingredients to search for in our skincare products, and asked Registered Dietitian, Johane M. Filemon, MS, RDN, CLT, which foods we can add to our plates to help our skin glow!
According to True Botanicals Facial Therapist Noelle, the #1 thing to look for in your skincare products is always antioxidants. Antioxidants help to ward off free radicals that are attacking your skin all day, and that can accelerate aging.
Fruits and veggies owe their vibrant colors to antioxidants, and berries are an excellent source that help shield your skin from free radicals. Blueberries, strawberries, Goji berries, and raspberries are the highest in antioxidants!
This powerhouse is known to be one of the strongest ingredients that helps to brighten and tone the skin, and you can add it to your diet as well in the form of oranges, bell peppers, strawberries, guavas, and more.
Parsley is also rich in vitamin C, and can be found in our Cold-Pressed Juices. Vitamin C has been shown to support the production of collagen which keeps our skin looking younger.
True Botanicals has it in powder form, which makes sure that this Vitamin C stays stable and potent until you use it.
The new buzzword in skincare is Chebula, and True Botanicals is harnessing all of its powers. Chebula is known to be a cascading antioxidant, which means its power to attack those free radicals lasts all day long.
Ceramides and Peptides
As you sleep your skin goes through a natural regeneration process. These two ingredients help support that as you sleep! You can find these in the Renew Repair Nightly Treatment, which helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier and support your skin in everything it needs to stay firm and glowing.
Leafy vegetables, like chards and spinach, are great additions to your diet to help keep skin healthy. Chards are full of Vitamin E, which is known to protect the skin from sun damage. Spinach is also loaded with lutein, another skin-protective carotenoid. Celery and cucumbers are excellent natural hydrators, which is so important for skincare. Find these ingredients and more skin superheroes in our line of Green Juices.
