15 Superfood Face Masks That Are Like Green Juice for Your Skin

With Thanksgiving now officially behind us, you may be feeling the need to detox, thanks to overindulging in salt-infused turkey, celebratory champagne,  pumpkin pie dessert (and seconds) and quite possibly even Black Friday breakfast thanks to excessive leftovers that, God forbid might go to waste. You know you’ve really celebrated the holiday of thanks the right way when you find yourself actually craving kale salads and green juices chock-full of antioxidants and vitamins.

While eating a healthy diet with plenty of leafy greens is essential nourishment for your body, overall well-being and, yes, even your skin, there are some serious benefits to applying superfoods and greens topically as well.

Kale for instance, is rich in vitamins A, C and K, as well as iron and omega fatty acids—all of which are commonly used active ingredients in anti-aging skin-care products. Other green fruit and veggies like spinach and avocado are also rich in omega-3 and -6 along with iron, vitamin C and chlorophyll.

These vitamins and nutrients not only have major skin-enhancing benefits when we eat them, but they also offer anti-aging benefits when applied directly to the skin as well. Whether or not you’re planning on going on a juice cleanse or not, your skin will thank you for treating it to these nutrient-dense face masks.
