There is no doubt that a great natural skin care routine and a healthy plant based diet go a long way to keep your skin looking fabulous. Fruit and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that help protect skin from cellular damage caused by pollution and free radicals that exist in our environment.
As well as trying to eat a minimum of five to 6 portions of fruit and vegetables a day try, we suggest choosing safe and gentle natural skin care products that are formulated with good levels of antioxidants sourced from fruits.
Here at Savar we use New Zealand blackcurrants in many of our formulations as blackcurrants are very beneficial for maintaining healthy skin and are rich in vitamin C, A and K, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and potassium.
Independent scientific research shows that blackcurrants are great for sensitive skin, an effective anti-inflammatory agent and also assist in preventing premature ageing and repairing damaged tissue. Recent test results also show that blackcurrants are an antioxidant source superior to at least 24 other common fruits
We suggest finding a few natural skin care products that really work for you and stick to them! A minimum selection of great natural skin care products should include a daily natural cleanser, toner and moisturiser.
In addition a great natural skincare serum used daily will take your routine to another level along with a beauty routine of weekly masks and exfoliating treatments. All this as well as a whole foods plant based diet should keep your skin healthy and bright.
