Beauty Expert Irene Falcone’s Top 5 Superfoods for Skin

We all want to incorporate healthier choices into our everyday lives but it can be difficult on the go! You’ve heard of superfoods but did you know that they’re not only found in health stores and green smoothies, but also in skincare and cosmetics?

By choosing products containing superfoods it’s easy to include health into your everyday routine without going to any extra effort. What’s not to love!

1. Green tea

This herbal drink is full of antioxidants and nutrients that help rid the body of toxins, promote weight loss and improve brain function. It’s anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties also makes green tea the perfect skincare ingredient in products like this 100% Pure Green Tea Cleanser. A cleanser that helps fight ageing? Count me in!

2. Avocado

Avocados are not only a delicious side to eggs in the morning, but also a nutrient rich superfood with amazing skin care benefits! This superfood is packed full of moisturising fatty acids and vitamins C and E, helping to improve your skin’s firmness and hydration. Avocado can be found in every day products like this Pai Hydrating Day Cream. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

3. Almonds

One of my favourite mid-morning snacks, almonds are not only the most nutritious nut, they can also be used in skin care to help create healthy, clear skin. Almonds are full of Omega-3 fatty acids, proteins and antioxidants which help to remove dead skin cells and leave you with fresh and glowing skin.

This Weleda Almond Oil is a multi-purpose product that can be used as anything from a moisturiser to a makeup remover. Perfect for busy women who love to multi-task!

4. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has become a popular delicious and healthy alternative to traditional cooking oil. I know I love using it when I’m making dinner because it not only gives my dishes a unique flavour, but also helps ease digestion and boosts my metabolism! What you might not know is that not only can you use coconut oil to moisturise your skin and remove makeup, but it’s become a common ingredients in beauty products because of its many benefits! For example, I love the 100% Pure Coconut Shower Gel and matching not only because it smells delicious, but because the hydrating coconut oil keeps my skin feeling silky and smooth all day long!

5. Goji Berries

Despite their small size, Goji berries are filled with protein, minerals and antioxidants that help our immune systems and heart health. When included in skin care products, Goji berries can help reduce the appearance of sun damage and wrinkles, firm the skin and stop inflammation. So why not replace your regular night eye cream with one that contains Goji berries? Let your skin soak up the benefits while you get some much needed sleep!
