We can’t believe that June is already drawing to an end. To celebrate this month, we’ve rounded up a few things we’ve been enjoying and wanted to share with you. Take a look at our top six picks…
Superfoods are packed full of antioxidants and it is these antioxidants which combat free radicals, the rogue molecules that trigger the process of oxidation that ultimately leads to ageing. It is a normal, natural process, however the body can become over-run with free radicals due to external stressors such as UV, pollution, smoke and alcohol.
Eating a varied diet rich in antioxidants will help alleviate these stresses. The vivid colour of superfoods is usually a strong indicator of a high anti-oxidant content so make sure you’re eating a whole rainbow of foods. Green broccoli and kale, red raspberries and tomatoes, orange sweet potatoes and carrots, yellow peppers and squash, purple blueberries and cabbage – all of these will boost your anti-oxidant intake.
You can also give your skin a helping hand by using skincare that contains antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E, which can all help to boost the health of your body and the health of your skin. The clever folk at ELEMIS have been researching the effects of oils extracted from superfoods and their impact on our skin, and have honed this research to come up with their new Superfood Facial Oil. Here they give us the lowdown on exactly what superfood oils can do for our skin:
