Superfoods play a vital role in feeding your body with essential vitamins and minerals, but they’re also incredibly effective at dialing up radiance, reducing lines and boosting the overall health of your skin, too. Here are some of the latest skin care buys packed with nutrient-dense ingredients such as goji and acai berries, quinoa, chia seeds and more.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist
The combination of pomegranate, acai and goji berries in Elizabeth Arden’s mist will keep your skin feeling refreshed. Try spritzing this all over your face before applying foundation for a light and dewy coverage, or use on its own through the day to top up hydration levels.
Comfort Zone Juvenate Body Scrub
Just because the cooler weather is setting in, doesn’t mean you can neglect the skin on your body while it hides under layers of clothes. To keep your skin soft and smooth all winter long, scrub with a gentle chia seed exfoliator, like Comfort Zone Juvenate Body Scrub, and use it twice weekly.
Lancôme Energie de Vie The Foam Cleanser
Healthy skin begins with a thorough cleanse. Lancôme’s Foam Cleanser is loaded with goji berries to increase radiance, as well as other energising plant extracts like lemon balm oil and Gentian to nourish.
Clarins Double Serum
One of the most iconic Clarins skin care products is the Double Serum, which undergoes a formula update every few years. The latest iteration is made with quinoa, which helps skin look and feel firmer.
Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque
Loaded with antioxidant-rich cranberry extract to energise dull skin and cranberry seeds to exfoliate, this mask is a true multitasker that your skin will love. Turmeric is the other star ingredient, which boasts anti-inflammatory powers to soothe the skin.
Estée Lauder Nutritious Vitality8™ Radiant Eye Jelly
Estée Lauder’s newest eye cream can fix tired-looking peepers all thanks to the pomegranate enriched gel formula that helps de-puff the delicate eye area. This product is also great for those that usually steer away from heavier eye creams - the lightweight texture of this one is easily absorbed by thirsty skin in an instant.
Payot Sleeping Pack
An overnight sleeping mask is essentially a supercharged night cream, and Payot’s version is rich in goji and acai berries to reboot your complexion. Plus, it also features silk tree extract to protect skin from the ageing effects of glycation.
Alpha-H Vitamin B Serum
Alpha-H Vitamin B Serum targets dehydration thanks to its chia seed formula that’s packed with omegas 3 and 6. You’ll also find copper peptides inside this formula, which is a protein that strengthens skin and boosts elasticity.
