Superfood skincare brands have taken over our beauty shelves! From the use of luscious avocados to youth-inducing berries, the trend continues to grow, and from strength to strength.
Do superfoods work on a topical level, you ask? While ingesting superfoods can help your body and overall health, but your skin is pretty much last to reap any of those benefits. This is why, applying the said superfood on your skin in the form of natural skincare, can make a world of a difference. A dewy, healthy glow along with a stronger skin barrier, sort of a difference!
Today, we round up some of our favourite superfood skincare brands and tell you exactly what makes them such power horses in a tub(e)!
