Superfoods in Makeup: What You Need to Know & Must-Have Products

From avocados to spinach, berries to chia seeds, superfoods have moved from the culinary world into the beauty industry. If you haven’t been following the cleanest diet, one that consists of superfoods, grains, and veggies, don’t feel bad because nowadays, your beauty products double as your daily serving of superfoods.

The superfood ingredients found in skincare products may not be as effective as ingesting them, but still possess various benefits that positively affect the overall appearance of your skin. Their appearance in beauty products is no surprise as we’ve seen ingredients like honey and licorice, both superfoods in their own right, plenty of times in our favorite moisturizer, mask or lip balm.

You might be wondering which products have what superfoods, which are worth the hype, and which are better left in the dust. Here’s a list of the most super of the superfood-containing beauty products. Ready to get gorgeous?
