The Beauty in the Bag – February 20, 2017 – Posted by Paige Herman-Axel
Superfoods are like the “It Bag” of the nutrition world. As soon as one is deemed “in,” it’s no sooner declared “out” and replaced with an even better source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
“What you eat is a very important part of overall health, and superfoods are a wonderful source of antioxidants that protect our cells from damage that impairs their function” explains Beverly Hills dermatologist, Zein Obagi, MD
Once a fruit, vegetable or grain achieves “superfood” status, it’s only a matter of time before it gets included in a skincare product—but can these nutrient-dense foods benefit the health and appearance of our skin when applied topically?
“There’s no substitute for proven anti-aging ingredients like retinol and growth factors,” explains Dr. Obagi, “but you can’t give your skin too many free-radical fighting antioxidants.”
Still not sold on applying a veritable salad to your face? Available exclusively through dermatologists, selected medspas and Warren-Tricomi Salons, this new beauty consumable hailing from Barcelona delivers your daily dose of superfood-derived antioxidants (plus collagen peptides, hyaluronic acid, silicon and other good-for-your-skin ingredients) the old-fashioned way: Through your mouth. Taken like a shot (it tastes like grape) or mixed into water or any other beverage, AETHERN® is backed by clinical studies that show its anti-aging ingredients help improve the appearance of wrinkles and boost skin moisture levels.
