Food for You AND Your Face!

August 21, 2014

It is a never-ending quest to discover creative and resourceful ways to keep our skin looking radiant and healthy. More and more of us are heading to our pantries, gardens and refrigerators in search of inspiration for skin care products rather than running to our local drugstores. It seems like fruits, veggies, oils and nuts aren't just great for eating, but also for influencing a more natural approach to caring for our skin.

Take for example one of our newest and most popular products: The Greek Goddess Skin Tightening Cream. It was inspired by a love for Greek Salad and how the 4 key ingredients of this well known dish (olive oil, tomatoes, cucumbers and lemons) can be used to moisturize, shrink pores and leave your skin positively glowing. Let's examine how these common ingredients are exactly what your face needs to feel hydrated and fabulous.

Olive oil is a well known moisturize perfect for relieving conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It is packed full of antioxidants that help repair cracked, damaged and chapped skin. Tomatoes are not only tasty and loaded with vitamins B, C and E, but when applied to the face they act as a natural astringent to help control excessive oiliness, acne and shine. Another fun fact about this versatile fruit: tomatoes contain lycopene which acts as a sunscreen and helps protect our skin against harmful ultraviolet rays. Studies also suggest that tomato and tomato products can help prevent cancer! Crisp cucumbers will not only hydrate your skin but are also essential in reducing puffiness, wrinkles and dark spots. They have the unique ability to shrink open pores by tightening the collagen in your skin. Plus did you know that when eaten, cukes can help cure hangovers and halitosis? Last but not least, the lemon. They're not just for lemonade anymore! Lemons are wonderful for fighting acne-causing bacteria and brightening the skin. They're also helpful in diminishing scars, skin discoloration and stretch marks.

There you have it, the perfect recipe for your face! Our Greek Goddess cream also contains soothing chamomile root extract as an extra skin-tightening component; a great combination for a flawless, even-toned complexion.

Get inspired by your food, be creative and feel beautiful!!
