Trend Alert: Fruits-And-Veggies Formulated Skincare To Keep Your Skin Radiant All Season Long
Fruits and veggies are not only great on your plate but also on your skin. While a fresh salad or a smoothie sounds delish, ingesting these superfoods is not the only way to get benefits out of them. One of the most popular trends in the beauty realm at the moment is using fruits and veggies as core ingredients for skincare formulas, and we’re totally here for it. Now, what’s the real deal about them? These contain a high level of antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients that can help fight aging signs and hydrate your skin. Also, fruits contain enzymes that help exfoliate dead skin cells to brighten up your complexion in a gentle yet powerful way, which makes these ingredients staples on a sensitive-skin routine.
While the range of products and brands experimenting with these is huge, there are a few that stand out because of how they develop their formulas while really thinking of the consumer and their needs and using fresh products to inject their skincare products with powerful nutrients. Sound like something you are ready to try? Here are some of our faves!
In their own words, “Fruits aren’t only delicious — they’re also amazing at nourishing and protecting the skin. That’s why we craft all our products with a superfruit base,” and oh, they’re right.

Truly formulated for everyone and anyone, their skincare lines cover all steps on your routine, from cleansing to exfoliating and moisturizing.
