Scientific Name: Spinacia Oleracea
Benefits/History: It’s true - the leafy greens that once haunted our childhood dinner plates are now making a comeback, but not as our nightly side dish. Often referred to as a “superfood”, the health benefits of eating spinach are already widely known. The topical skin benefits of this vegetable, on the other hand, are no less impressive!
Spinach is rich in skin reviving and regenerating vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fatty acids including: Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Beta Carotene, Omega 3, and more! This uniquely dense composition of healthy skin essentials enables spinach to act as an anti aging powerhouse. When applied topically, spinach extract can strengthen, moisturize and restore skin’s natural luminosity while repairing damaged skin cells and reducing the appearance of sun damage, dark spots, inflammation, and the visible signs or aging.
Skin Types: Although the advantages of spinach can be enjoyed by all, those with breakout-prone skin types in particular would greatly benefit from adding spinach into their daily routines. The antioxidants and Vitamins (specifically A, K and C!) present in spinach help to cleanse the skin, unclog pores and fight off the bacteria that flare up acne and pimple outbursts - improving clarity and providing a radiant complexion!
