Skincare detox

accreditation

 Adding detox favourites like green tea, kale and vitamin C to your beauty routine may be just the thing your face needs for an added boost.

Green tea

Drinking green tea has proven cancer fighting properties, improves brain functions and increases fat burning. So if you’re not already sipping on a cup every day, it’s time to start! Grabbing some new products that contain antioxidant-rich green tea can also be beneficial to your skin.

Kale

It’s the vegetable of choice for stars including Jennifer Aniston, Julia Styles and Bette Midler, and kale skincare is now officially a ‘thing’. Because of its abundance of vitamins and minerals, it makes for a great diet and beauty staple.

Vitamin C

Adding leafy greens and citrus fruits to your daily food intake will give your body a much needed vitamin C boost, but the wonders of the powerful vitamin extend further than just a health hit. Vitamin C becomes a power product when applied topically to the skin, and has been lauded for its ability to protect the body from the destructive, ageing effects of free radicals.

Start your make-up routine with an antioxidant rich Vitamin C oil, serum or cream which can help combat ageing, even out skin tone, improve hydration and revitalise the skin’s surface.
