Moringa is filled with vitamin A and it’s one of the most potent vitamins out there for near perfect skin. When applied topically, it encourages the skin cells to renew themselves at a lightning speed, helping to limit peksy breakouts, blur blemishes and pigmentation, and iron fine lines. The unsung skincare ingredient is also packed with moisture magnet and antioxidant vitamin E, which makes it perfect for combating dry, flaky skin as well as skin problems caused due to pollution and other environmental changes.
Honey, especially raw or unpasteurized, is a fabulously versatile and all-natural ingredient to use on skin. It’s full of antioxidants, which are good for wrinkles and aging skin. It is antibacterial, which helps with acne treatments and prevention. It clarifies skin by opening up and unclogging pores. It’s also a great moisturizer that soothes irritation and blemishes, and it leaves a lovely afterglow.
Avocado comes up with excellent hydration properties which not only nourishes the skin but also protects it inside out. Presence of Vitamin E in abundance makes this fruit a perfect natural moisturizer. Butter fruit is peculiarly so much buttery that when applied topically, the fatty acids present in it deeply penetrates into the dry skin and re-invigorates dull and dry skin. Hence, makes it look healthily glowing, soft and supple. It also works wonders for improving the skin tone. Credit goes to antioxidant carotenoids like Alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and lutein present in avocados that offers a great help in skin whitening. Moreover, Avocados work best for skin lightening because it contains a high amount of Vitamin C and E (antioxidants found in many skin whitening creams). These Vita
Cacao is known as a superfood powerhouse for its high antioxidant levels, but most people don’t realise our skin can benefit from these antioxidants through topical application as well. The high levels of polyphenol antioxidants in cacao belong to the same group of antioxidants found in green tea and red wine and protect our cells from premature ageing. Amazingly, raw organic cacao has over 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries. Raw cacao is full of effective vitamin C which is excellent for collagen production, skin plumpness, fighting wrinkles, protecting against UV damage, brightening the skin and reducing pigmentation.
Spirulina is rich in antioxidants that can help defend your skin and body from free radicals. It neutralizes free radicals and other toxins that cause premature signs of aging. In addition to neutralizing free radicals with antioxidants, spirulina has anti-inflammatory properties that can also slow down signs of aging. Some studies report that spirulina provides strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, both of which are leading drivers for reversing skin aging. It attracts and removes heavy metals from the body before they reach and get stored in skin tissue. With a good amino acid profile, including chief constituents for skin collagen—glycine and proline—and mineral copper, spirulina is a great option to support skin collagen production. It is also effective in treating dark circles and dry eye symptoms.
Aloe vera is a bona fide super ingredient, with a long list of health benefits and a celebrity following that dates right back to Egyptian times. Cleopatra used the plant in her beauty regime, selecting it to treat everything from burns to infections and parasites. The jelly-like substance found inside the thick spiky leaves of the aloe vera cactus is laden with an impressive list of nutrients, including 20 minerals, 12 vitamins, 18 amino acids and 200 active plant compounds or phytonutrients. Applied topically, the gel is purported to be outstanding for skin health.
One of the most important active compounds found in turmeric is curcumin – an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral powerhouse. Curcumin has been shown to be quite effective in calming the symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, scleroderma, rosacea, and other skin diseases. Curcumin has also been recognized as an impressive anti-cancer treatment, able to selectively kill tumor cells while leaving the normal cells intact – a feat that traditional chemotherapy treatments are unable to accomplish.
