The Juicy Benefits For Hair + Skin
It's no secret that fruits can be so beneficial for your body. We know eating them can have positive effects on your skin and hair, but what about putting them directly on your skin? Fruit extracts are rich in nutrients, antioxidants, polyphenols and natural moisture making them super foods for your skin. They provide a host of juicy benefits including upping your skin's radiance, hydration, and potentially nurturing skin's function to prevent damage and aging, on a kinder, deeper level.
The power of most fruits is in the fact that they are high in naturally occurring vitamins and rich in antioxidants. Take Mango
as an example: The high antioxidant content helps fight free radicals to assist with preventing sun damage and premature aging. They’re full of hydration when applied topically and are a super source
of Vitamin C and A which are known to help support your body’s natural collagen production as well as rejuvenation, tone and brighten. Mango is also a source of Vitamin B6, Copper, Potassium, Magnesium, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin E and Vitamin K, plus it’s packed with cleansing and astringent properties
. This is why we decided to incorporate mango extracts into our Raw Coconut + Mango
scent. It is incredibly uplifting and helps boost your mood while it cleanses and beautifies your skin.
Look at Lemon, this bright fruit is known to contain huge amounts of vitamin C, ascorbic acid and alpha hydroxy acids, which can work to exfoliate and help even out texture and tone. Avocado
, (Yes! It’s a fruit.) is said to be loaded with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, potassium and lecithin, making it a great ingredient for soothing skin and increasing moisture. Another fruity favorite is Watermelon
— which is 92% water and full of skin plumping amino acids and the phytonutrient, lycopene. Pineapple
is full of the enzyme bromelain, which is known as a natural exfoliator helping to possibly remove dead skin cells revealing fresher, brighter skin. As well as boosting your glow, it has also been found to be helpful for the prevention of damage from pollution, inflammation and oxidative stress
Feeding your skin and incorporating fruit extracts into your clean routine is full of beautifying benefits to help improve the health and appearance of your skin, but it also helps connect you to the earth in a way that can ground your daily life. It’s why our Raw Sugar formulas
are packed with these juicy ingredients to love your skin, from the outside in.
