Superfood-packed plates are all the rage and for good reason. But, who’s to say that the nutrients you’re putting in your body aren’t equally as beneficial to put on your skin? Packed with antioxidants and good for you nutrients, we are whipping up a batch of superfood-infused skincare designed to freshen up your glow from the outside too!
So, in addition to getting each of the below superfood ingredients in every Perfect Bar, we’re using them for a rejuvenating face mask recipe, as well!
For example, here are all the benefits of kelp (yes, that’s a Perfect Bar superfood) for your skin:
- Vitamin C – This is a great vitamin for skin. It boosts collagen production which promotes skin elasticity and youthful skin.
- Potassium – Potassium is needed for proper hydration of the body including the skin.
- Iron – Promotes circulation of blood throughout the body. Boosts hair growth and provides skin with abundant oxygen-rich blood which makes it healthy and supple.
- Niacin – Fades facial scars. Brightens skin complexion.
- Choline – Helps reduce oily skin. Soothes skin irritation and revitalizes mature skin.
*Makes 2 masks
- ½ tsp organic honey
- 1 tsp dehydrated green powder of choice (kelp, alfalfa, spinach, etc.)
- ¼ tsp apple cider vinegar
- ½ tsp cold-pressed olive oil
In a glass container, add ingredients and mix thoroughly. With clean hands, cover your entire face. Leave on for 15-20 minutes. Wash off with a face towel using warm water.
Benefits of other ingredients:
- Organic honey, also in most Perfect Bars, has been shown to have antibacterial properties, helping acne by killing bacteria. Honey also absorbs oily skin, helping with inflammation.
- Olive oil, also part of Perfect Bar’s superfood oil blend, contains antioxidants that help add moisture and protect the skin and also helping remove free radicals which do damage to the skin by aging us!
- Apple Cider Vinegar has antibacterial properties, balances the skin PH similar to an expensive toner, and also helps to tighten pores.
We hope this mixture leaves you feeling as good on the outside as Perfect Bar does on the inside. Enjoy!
