It’s no secret that I love a good superfood. Especially when my skincare philosophy is that you feed your skin from the inside out; nourishing it with goodness through a healthy, wholefood diet, lots of water and more antioxidants than you’ll find in the Amazon rainforest.
If, like me, you get excited by the mere mention of words like chia, spirulina, oats, ginseng and goji, you’ll be thrilled to learn that beauty brands are catching onto the benefits of these wonder ingredients. This week, I take you through five of the best beauty products packed with superfoods.
Here’s the video…
