What is a Superfood?
Superfoods usually come in the form of a plant, but can also be some meat and dairy. The term “superfood” describes the loads of nutrients that are packed into these foods, including antioxidants, healthy fats, vitamins, and fibers. Due to their nutritional values, these superfoods are thought to bring more health benefits whether they be applied topically or consumed as an average food. In today’s case, we will be focusing on the top 5 most powerful superfoods for supporting the skin.
Top 5 Most Powerful Anti-Aging Superfoods
Green tea has been popularized as a trending drink that holds many health-boosting abilities and detoxifying benefits. With science backing this famed drink, fingers have been starting to point at green-tea’s glamorous effect on the skin. Loaded with antioxidants, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and immune-strengthening properties, the green tea outweighs other teas in health benefits. Green tea is thought to be a superfood because of the long list of vitamins and minerals within it, especially Vitamin B’s, C, and E. When applied to the skin, green tea can do some wonderful anti-aging magic including: fighting off wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone, sagging, fine lines, and evening skin tone.
Almonds have been gaining popularity as an alternative to dairy beverages in the form of almond milk, and are becoming more and more readily available. These nuts are incredible superfoods, particularly when it comes to the skin, due to their antioxidants and fatty acids, which help fight pollution damage that contributes to skin aging, and keep the skin moisturized and plump. Zinc in almonds can also help in keeping the skin healthy and prevent inflammation. Almond Oil is what is most commonly used in beauty products and is hypoallergenic, being safe for all skin types to use.
Avocados are easily some of the most favored fruits in the world, and are astonishingly healthy even with their high fat (healthy fats) content. This creamy fruit is rich in vitamins A, D and E and powerful antioxidants, helping protect against free radical damage. There are also tons of healthy fatty acids and natural oils to hydrate, nourish, and soften the skin, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Avocado Oil is most commonly used in skincare and can support the healthy production of collagen while restoring firmer, younger looking skin.
Unlike the other known oils, olive oil is packed with healthy monounsaturated fats and fatty acids, similar to the profiles of Avocado Oils. They are stuffed with antioxidants, vitamins, and tons of other health boosting benefits. Olive oil is known to have one of the top profiles for antioxidants as compared to other oils, and even contains squalene, which delays premature aging by improving the skin's elasticity levels. The Omega-3 fatty acids in olive oil help with strengthening the skin's barrier, the moisture levels and blood circulation of the skin.
Camel Milk is the new rising star in superfoods for skin care, becoming known for its ability to care for the body from the inside out. The main power behind its ancient use for the skin comes from the high levels of Vitamin C, fatty acids, and protective and immune strengthening proteins. Due to the small size of its molecules, camel milk can penetrate the skin easier and promote absorption without leaving residue behind. Naturally abundant in lanolin, camel milk helps maintain the skin's natural moisture levels while reducing inflammation, being one of the top anti-aging superfoods that you can apply to your skin.
