Baobab for skin
A low-carb Super Fruit for Age-Defying Skin
Radiant skin isn’t just about using the right skin creams; it’s about radiating from the inside out and nothing makes your skin glow like a healthy lifestyle. For many, a healthy lifestyle includes a few choice supplements—and there are supplements that are tailor made to address good skin and overall health, like those found in our Perfect Supplements Radiant Skin Pack. This powerful combo includes a powerhouse trifecta for exceptional skin health: baobab (anti-ageing effects), hydrolyzed collagen (maintains skin elasticity and plumpness) and magnesium (promotes even, moist skin).
Today, I want to dive into how baobab contributes to amazing skin. Baobab contains certain nutrients, like vitamin C and magnesium, that have been shown to enhance your skin’s radiance. Baobab powder isn’t just a friend to your skin; it also offers an array of potential health benefits!
So, exactly how can supplementing with baobab be an asset to your skincare routine? Read on, and we’ll fill you in!
What is Baobab?
Baobab is a super-fruit that comes from the baobab tree or the tree of life found in Africa, and in keeping with its super-fruit badge, it contains an impressive nutrient profile. Here are some of the health benefits associated with consuming baobab:
- It’s nutrient-dense, so it’s good for supporting and maintaining optimal health
- It’s rich in prebiotics (different to probiotics) which feeds the colony of good bacteria in your gut (probiotics adds in more healthy bacteria and prebiotics is like food for these good microbes)
- It’s excellent for the skin as it’s anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral
- It reduces inflammation, thanks to polyphenols and antioxidants
- It improves satiety which can help with weight loss
- It can help control blood sugar levels
How Baobab Can Make your Skin Glow
The benefits of taking baobab aren’t limited to just improving your health. Supplementing with baobab can also bring out your skin’s natural radiance. Some of the key nutrients that have a role in turning up your glow are:
Two tablespoons of baobab fruit or powder contain 58% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C, which is a good thing because vitamin C is one of the most skin-loving vitamins out there! Anti-ageing skin care products rely on vitamin C because it’s rich in antioxidants which helps protect the skin from free radical damage — things like chemicals, smoke or pollutants. Free radicals chip away at your skin's elasticity, which leads to premature wrinkles. Additionally, vitamin C can brighten, hydrate, tighten fine lines and boost collagen production for more lustrous skin.
Magnesium is an abundant mineral in the body that’s involved in many biochemical reactions, but when it comes to your skin, magnesium is anti-inflammatory—meaning it can help prevent premature wrinkles. In addition, if you aren’t consuming enough magnesium, the fatty acid and collagen levels on the skin's surface plummet, leading to uneven and dry skin. Finally, magnesium plays a part in skin regeneration and repair, so for healthier skin, make sure you’re getting enough magnesium.
