You know you’ve really indulged when you find yourself actually craving kale salads and green juices chock-full of antioxidants and vitamins that would ordinarily leave your repulsed. While eating a healthy diet with plenty of leafy greens is essential nourishment for your body, overall well-being and, yes, even your skin, there are some serious benefits to applying superfoods and greens topically as well. Superfood face masks are a great way to give your skin a dose of topical nutrition.
Kale, for instance, is rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as iron and omega fatty acids—all of which are commonly used active ingredients in anti-aging skin-care products. Other green fruits and veggies like spinach and avocado are also rich in omega-3 and -6 along with iron, vitamin C and chlorophyll.
These vitamins and nutrients not only have major skin-enhancing benefits when we eat them, but they also offer anti-aging benefits when applied directly to the skin as well. Whether or not you’re planning on going on a juice cleanse or not, your skin will thank you for treating it to these nutrient-dense face masks.
