Summertime is officially here, and with that comes sun kissed skin. That summertime glow we all want can also be taxing on our body’s largest organ, the epidermis. So, besides using a safe and efficient sunscreen, now is the time to nourish your skin with these antioxidant rich, superfood skincare ingredients!

After a long day outdoors, the UV rays from the sun can cause damage to our skin cells, resulting in things like hyper-pigmentation and wrinkles. Antioxidants neutralize these skin damaging free radicals and their unwanted effects.

We’ve all heard about eating antioxidants to improve overall health, but ingesting them isn’t always enough. In fact, the National Center for Biotechnology Information reports that up to 90% of cosmetic skin problems associated with aging could actually be from sun damage, not the normal aging process. So, don’t skip your leafy greens and berries, but don’t cheat your skin either, feed it with antioxidant rich skincare!
