Mentioned below are some reasons why you should incorporate spinach into your skin care routine. Thank us later for the secret to flawless skin you are about to unlock.
Application v/s Consumption
Although spinach consumption is encouraged in the form of food, our intestine is sometimes unable to absorb all the nutrients present in it. Therefore, it becomes imperative to make it a part of your skin care. Skincare products that have spinach in them are rich in Vitamin B6 and B9, providing nourishment to the skin and the application of such products provides visible changes in your skin in no time.
Vitamin B9 for your skin
Premature ageing is a cause of concern for many of us. With the growing stress and tension during the pandemic, it has become so important for everyone to take care of their skin. Spinach is rich in folic acid or Vit B9 that helps improve skin ageing, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Reduces Inflammation in the skin
Besides its anti-ageing properties, skin care products that have spinach in them help reduce inflammation or redness of the skin.
Dry skin is also one of the major causes of skin inflammation. We lead our lives with irritated skin and it lowers our confidence and causes discomfort to us. Spinach provides us with enough amount of water to help hydrate our skin. Moreover, Vitamin A, B, C and K in Spinach help reduce skin inflammation. When you provide proper nourishment and hydration to your skin, it is bound to look radiant.
Protects skin from damage due to UV Rays
Most people consider sun damage as tanning, but it is not as simple as it looks. Sun damage causes more harm to our skin than just tanning. It destroys our skin cells and increases hyperpigmentation in the skin. In some cases, sun damage leads to skin cancer. Skincare products that are made of Spinach have folic acid in a huge amount, responsible for producing DNA and RNA in our bodies, which in turn help prevent serious skin diseases. Therefore, it is important to provide our skin with the protection it needs by using products that are rich in Vitamin-B that will help the building of skin cells.
Reduces or Prevents Acne
Increased sebum in the skin leads to breakouts in the skin. Regular use of skin care products that are rich in folic acid can help control the production of sebum in your skin that leads to acne. Also, Spinach is rich in antioxidants that help detoxify your skin and reduce stress.
We encourage you to add spinach to your skincare and experience having wonderful skin. We might be in our homes right now, working hard each day under stress and pressure, but there will come a time when all of this will be over. Until then, take care of your skin because, in a post-pandemic world, we shall rise and shine with spinach in our skincare. *Wink* *Wink*
