The foods you eat can help you to look good from the inside out and with an extra dose of goodness in your skincare products by Elemis and Kiehl's, you can enjoy a healthier, brighter and more radiant complexion than ever before. 

 

Some of the best  superfoods, supergrains, and superfruits that nature provides are rich in antioxidants, omega fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that are good for your overall health as well as your skin. Here's a list of the ones that we recommend you put on your weekly shopping list. 

 

Avocado 

Rich in Vitamin E and Vitamin B6 that promotes healthy skin. Also helps to improve cholesterol levels. 

 

Blueberry 

Packed full of vitamin C that helps to promote collagen production. Also contains powerful anti-oxidants that protects and safeguards skin from free radicals. 

 

Chia seeds

Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, is a great anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant rich so skin looks more glowing. Is also great for weight loss. 

 

Dates

Bursting with many different vitamins including B1, B2, B3 B5, A1 and C and can help to improve the signs of fine lines and wrinkles as well as strengthening bones. 

Eggs

A great source of high-quality proteins, vitamins and minerals that improve health. The protein levels help to boost collagen production while zinc in eggs helps to clear the skin. 

 

Flax seeds 

Full of Omega-3 fatty acids that are a great anti-ager that helps to keep skin looking smooth and hydrated. 

 

Ginger 

Full of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that help to soothe irritated skin. 

 

Honey 

Rich in minerals, antioxidants, probiotics, enzymes, and antibacterial properties that help to protect and nourish damaged skin. 

 

Kale 

This powerful leafy green is a good source of potent rich antioxidants that help to reduce skin inflammation. 

 

Lentils 

These little lentils are a huge source of vegetable protein, which your body needs for cell growth, maintenance, and repair. 

 

Mushrooms

We can't get enough of mushrooms as they contain selenium, antioxidants and Vitamin anti-inflammatory properties that help to soothe skin conditions like acne and eczema. 

 

Olives 
Rich in fatty acids and antioxidants that help to nourish, hydrate and protect the skin. Also contains Vitamin E an ingredient that helps to safeguard skin against signs of premature ageing. 

 

Pomegranate

Super low calorie which is great for aiding with weight loss while the special seeds from Pomegranates help to nourish skin and provide intense hydration. 

 

Quinoa 
Rich in Vitamin A that helps to stimulate the skin and promote the production of collagen so fine lines and wrinkles appear reduced.  

 

Raspberries  

Packed with vitamin C and antioxidants raspberries can reduce the signs of ageing including age spots or wrinkles. The antioxidants also help to keep the skin healthy and rejuvenated. 

 

Salmon

A favourite superfood as recommended by dermatologists, Salmon is a high source of protein, vitamin E and zinc. Helps to improve skin health, texture and get skin glowing again. It's also great for improving hair health. 

 

Tumeric

One of my faves. Literally, have a shot with milk in the morning and at night to help to make skin look brighter. Turmeric contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. 

 

Watermelon   

Full of antioxidants such as vitamin C and A that helps to slow down the signs of ageing. Vitamin A also promotes collagen and elastin cells that helps your skin stay young and supple.

 

Yoghurt

Yoghurt, in particular, Greek Yogurt is rich in vitamin B to help keep skin glowing and highly hydrated as well as aiding in cell-growth and regeneration. 

 

Elemis take some of nature's finest ingredients and cleverly combine them with Pre-Biotics - a good bacteria that live on the skin's surface to create a range of superfood products that give your skin that extra boost of health and vitality. 

We highly recommend: Superfood Cica Calm Booster, Superfood AHA Glow Booster, Superfood Facial Oil,  Superfood Kefir Tea MistSuperfood Blackcurrant Jelly Exfoliator, Superfood Vital Veggie Mask, Superfood Berry Mask, Superfood Facial Wash

 

Kiehl's also use superfoods such as turmeric,  avocado, pomegranate and ginger in their specially formulated products so that the goodness of these ingredients can ultimately benefit the condition of your skin. 

We highly recommend: Kiehl's Tumeric and Cranberry Masque, Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, Kiehl's Cucumber Herbal tonerKiehl's daily reviving Concentrate with Ginger Extract

My tip would be definitely don’t get discouraged when products don’t work for you. 

We are all different and not everyone will achieve the same results.

All the foods I should be eating. I’m trying the kiehls avocado eye cream at the moment. 

My tip is try and drink water, it’s something I really need to do as well and I don’t know why it’s so hard to do!

@makeup-addict  I really struggle with water as well 🙈 I used to find it easier when I was buying bottles of water but I hated buying them. I’ve even tried the bottles you can fill with fruit etc I just can’t stick to it 😣

This is a very helpful reference and guide of all the superfoods that I need to know and update my knowledge on, and also definitely need to include more in the foods I eat. Thank you for sharing this.

Nailing It

Great article @SarahS thanks for sharing. Will definitely make a note of these to add to the shopping list! Something I have discovered lately which has worked a treat for my skin is, if you are struggling to shift stubborn spots, try applying raw honey on them and it really does clear them up quickly, it's the only spot treatment I use now!

@makeup-addict  how does the Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado 30Ml - Kiehls  sit under makeup? 🙏🌟

makeup-addict
Multimasker

@kj_lovinbeautyIt sits under makeup really well, I put it on this morning and left it a minute while I put my moisturiser on and foundation, it soaks in well and my concealer goes over more smoothly 😊💕

@makeup-addict  Thanks I’ve been looking at this or wondering if to go back to clinique all about eyes. But I used that 10 years ago and it was a faithful eye cream. I’m tempted to give the Kiehl’s one a go. Thanks for letting me know how it goes on 😀🌟

Love Turmeric for the skin! It's so amazing! Helps reduce inflammation and brighten! X

@kj_lovinbeauty I haven’t tried Clinique eye cream before. Go to a kiehls counter and ask them about it, when I went to the counter the lady was so friendly and gave me a few different samples. I mentioned kiehls was recommended on here so don’t know if that helped 😉😊

What you said about not getting discouraged @SophieG1 is so true yet so hard! Smiley Very Happy I read all these stories how product x worked so well for 'everyone' and when I try it - nothing happens. I've so, so many partly/half used bottles and tubes and whatnot of moisturisers, primers, setting sprays, shampoos, conditioners, hair thickening lotions and potions etc. AND I'm still trying to find The One(s) for me. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Always remove your makeup before bedtime, I have always been really strict with myself and this skincare rule and keep hydrated. 

Superfoods are amazing in skincare.
