It’s that patriotic time of year when we celebrate all things Irish and all things good and green. We love our St. Patricks Day Festival and to prove it we’re going all out on our greens, the edibles and the topicals-for the ultimate beauty treat inside and out!
You mother told you to eat your greens and your granny told your mum to eat her greens. So were they right and how important are greens to our general and skin health?
The vegetable kingdom provides an essential source of nutrients and micro minerals to humans and among the most important are the greens. With the new call for 10 portions of fruit and veg per day it’s wise to have a wide variety of both, but greens are number one on our list! Especially if you can get them grown by traditional farming methods and pesticide free because the healthier the soil the more concentrated the nutrients are in the greens.
We do love our topical greens and both our skincare brands offer up an intensely nutrient green skin treat. Topical nutrients in the right formula can penetrate skin cells and protect or prevent damage from cross linkage and oxidation and even help trigger collagen production through the stimulation of fibroblasts and by delivering the raw materials needed to increase elastin and collagen and improve skin density. One of most popular green mud masks is Profound Skin Care’s Hyper Repair Vitamin Masque that works rejuvenation and skin brightening wonders for all skin types with an edge on skin dullness and all types of hyperpigmentation. Kojic acid with a cocktail of B Vitamins and lactic acid smooth and clarify the skin to tighten pores and brighten the complexion with melisma busting kojic acid.
