Superfoods for your Skin

Print
1 2 3

You are what you eat- yes, it’s a cliché but a very true one! What you eat as well as what you use on your skin can impact its appearance overall. A diet high in fats and sugars can dull your complexion and leave your skin prone to conditions such as acne, eczema, or an uneven skin tone.

Of course, environmental factors, smoking, and excess alcohol can also really drain the color from your skin. Essentially, when toxins build up in your body, they will show through your skin. Inflammation can negatively affect collagen production, and we need collagen to support great skin!

 

 

Eating Well

 

We should all know by now the benefits to our body when we eat well, but there are massive plus sides for our skin too. Skin that is well looked after should look vibrant, if it appears to “glow” then that’s another big bonus! Some people are just genetically blessed with great skin, but even they would still put some effort into their skincare to maintain it.

Eating a diet that includes healthy oils, fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, lean protein, fiber-rich foods, and of course enough water can get you on the best footing for vibrant, good-looking skin.

Here are some foods that are noted as being highly beneficial for your skin, they are high in anti-oxidant value and many have anti-inflammatory benefits too!

  • Ginger

  • Oatmeal

  •  Tomatoes

  •  Sweet Potatoes

  •  Cinnamon

  •  Avocados

  •  Oil-rich fish such as salmon, mackerel or sardines

  •  Quinoa

  •  Spinach

  •  Peppers 

 

Tender Loving Care for your Skin

 

Eating well is only a part of lovely-looking skin. What you put on your skin to keep it moisturized and protected is also extremely important.

Going natural is always the best way to go, and if you can go one better and find organic products then that’s even better! The important thing to remember is to keep it simple and use products that match or work well with your skin. Dry skin in particular needs a focus on moisturization to re-balance it and fortify the skin. The good thing about natural skincare is that it tends to work well for different skin types and it can help to offer your skin the protection and love it needs most naturally.

  • Coconut oil has several benefits for your skin. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory so it can help to reduce inflammation, its antimicrobial properties can assist to protect your skin from harmful bacteria, and it’s also a great moisturizer that absorbs into your skin very well. You can also use it on your hair to add some shine and potentially prevent breakage and split ends.

  • Shea Butter can also complement your skin so you look your best. It is one of the best moisturizers for acne or eczema-prone skin. It contains anti-aging properties and can help restore elasticity to your skin. It can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Shea butter provides the best organic solution to smooth, glowing, and youthful skin while also moistening thirsty, dry curls.

Sounds great, doesn’t it?! Sans Pareil Naturals are passionate about Shea butter. Sans Pareil naturals shea butter is imported directly from a small fair-trade farm in Uganda.

Their unrefined USDA certified organic shea butter has up to 17x the healing power of standard West African shea from Ghana- plus it glides on smoother every time!

 

Sans Pareil Naturals explain the big difference between East African and West African shea butter!

The best shea butter on the planet comes from East African organic shea farms.

Shea trees are grown in both West Africa and East Africa; however, Eastern shea nuts contain higher levels of oleic acid, which means that the butter has more great-for-your-skin nutrients like vitamin A and vitamin E.

 

West African shea butter can be hard and waxy, but shea butter from East Africa is noticeably soft, light, and creamy. It is more spreadable and soaks easily into the skin. East African shea butter is considered the luxury shea butter. It is harvested with care and it is the richest, most nutrient-dense butter that works perfectly for the skin. The butter effortlessly soaks into the skin to protect, moisturize, and heal.

 Not only do the oils, vitamins, and minerals moisturize your skin, but more olein oil in our nilotica shea butter is exponentially more effective than West African shea from Ghana at protecting your skin”- San Pareil Naturals

Shea Butter is a Skin Superfood!

 

Shea butter is a staple of natural skincare throughout the world and many people have discovered its secrets!

  • It’s essentially a superfood for your skin and hair, the rich butter comes from the nuts of the Shea Tree, which are native to Africa.

  • The Shea nut has been traditionally cultivated for centuries and contains skin-soothing and medicinal properties.

  • Shea Butter has a smooth, silky texture that stays firm at room temperature but softens with body heat. This makes it easy to apply and it absorbs beautifully into your skin or hair.

 

There are many ways to incorporate Shea Butter into your healthy self-care routine to nourish your skin and hair.
