We put our skin through a lot. Whether it’s sunny days on the beach or the cold winter wind blowing against our cheeks, our environment takes a toll on our complexion, often leading to dull, clearly aging skin. In fact, sometimes our skin can show our age a bit more accurately than we’d like to admit. Luckily, superfoods can arm us with ways to revitalize our skin, making it look younger and glow like it was meant to, no matter how old we get!
One of the most effective superfoods when it comes to transforming your skin is noni powder. Often called “the queen of health plants,” noni powder provides anti-inflammatory properties and full-body detoxification. Both of these benefits, plus the mineral selenium found in the noni plant, help promote glowing skin.
Inflammation is often the cause of some of the most common skin issues including rashes, itchiness, redness, and chronic conditions such as eczema. This inflammation can result from sun exposure, chemical irritants, or allergens, but thankfully a chemical substance in noni powder called scopoletin provides the plant’s anti-inflammatory properties.
Additionally, noni powder naturally detoxifies the body, which is good news for our skin, because it’s constantly exposed to countless toxins in our environment. Because our skin is the organ most responsible for detoxifying our bodies, utilizing noni powder to help it do its job helps clear things out more effectively, ultimately resulting in less acne and blemishes.
Finally, selenium neutralizes the free radicals that could otherwise lead to wrinkles. Plus, it supports cell membranes to help slow signs of aging. Talk about a double whammy!
While there are tons of ways to get your fix of noni powder (such as this noni refresher), we love incorporating it into our morning smoothies at least once per week. This Noni Supermodel Smoothie recipe is designed to help your skin glow. So what are you waiting for, Superfoodies? Here’s to healthy, young skin!
