Edible Ingredients: For Eating or Treating?
Maybe it’s that beauty brands are taking note of all the #eeeeats posts on Instagram, or perhaps they are focused on the undeniable skin benefits of food, but edible ingredients are showing up everywhere in our beauty products. While we’re all for a good DIY situation, the convenience of these powerhouse foods in ready-mixed formulas is certainly worth consideration (and ingestion).
Here are some of our most-adored products that contain foodie components:
While many eye creams with active ingredients cause irritation, Restorsea Revitalizing Eye Cream ($85) has a proprietary complex from a salmon egg enzyme to diminish fine lines and brighten, and is much gentler than its chemical-filled counterparts.
Davines MELU Hair Shield ($34) is a must before heat-styling thanks to the protection it offers from lentil seeds.
One Love Organics Oh Mega Calming Chia Oil ($49) relies on organic chia seed oil to soothe irritated skin.
Breaking out? Look no further than Arcona Raspberry Clarifying Pads ($36). These are a must post-workout.
While it may sound like a superfood salad, Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Quinoa Co-Wash ($36) is a non-lathering cleanser that conditions and nourishes while cleaning your locks.
It would certainly be easy to mistake Eos Vanilla Bliss Shave Cream ($4) for yummy cupcake icing considering the consistency and smell, but it’s not. This stuff makes shaving a cinch.
To double up on the relaxation while soaking in a tub full of Fresh Sake Bath ($82), bring a class of wine in as well!
While we love carrots as a vehicle for our hummus addiction, the glow that they provide in the form of Odacite CaR Wild Carrot Facial Serum Concentrate ($55) is pretty clutch as well.
Not only does May Lindstrom Skin The Honey Mud ($80) feel and look like pudding, it utilizes naturally antibacterial and healing raw honey to soothe skin.
