Kale In Skincare

May 13, 2021

         Let’s talk about the benefits of kale in skincare. We know kale is good for you all around but specifically, why should you incorporate it into your skincare routine? Kale is a phytonutrient, meaning a natural compound produced by a plant. Kale is packed with vitamins A, B, C, and K, as well as antioxidants which are perfect for hydrating skin, detoxifying pores, reducing fine lines, increasing cell turnover, and more.

       

        The vitamins work together to help give you younger, brighter-looking skin. Individually, the vitamins are able to provide you with many great benefits.

Let’s break down the vitamins within kale-

Vitamin K- It is great for dark circles as it helps diminish the appearance of purple pigmentation. It also helps tighten the skin while reducing any fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin C- Vitamin C can diminish darkness, brighten, and smooth your overall skin tone.

Iron- Kale is also a good source of iron. Iron can help to speed up cell turnover to help with acne scarring and blemishes.

Copper- Our skin can suffer from inflammation and present as rashes, eczema, or psoriasis. Along with vitamin C in kale, copper also helps control inflammation of the skin.

Lutein- Lutein is a carotenoid that promotes collagen production. Collagen is a major part of your skin’s strength and elasticity. Lutein in kale will help your collagen stay intact to give your skin a younger appearance.

        In addition to skincare results, kale can be beneficial for your hair as well. It promotes hair growth and can help fight dandruff. The iron in kale can also strengthen your hair and help to maintain elasticity. All skin types will benefit from the incorporation of kale, but specifically dry, irritated, and sensitive skin will see the biggest improvements.

        We suggest incorporating kale into your diet but also looking within your skincare ingredients. Our Soyier Skin Lait Demaquillant: Crisp Conditioning Face Milk is fortified with skin conditioning and strengthening ingredients such as kale, lemon amino acids, and hydrolyzed carrot protein. This is a gentle yet powerful creamy cleanser that is packed with nutrients and antioxidants to help fight free radicals.
