Surprising Ingredients for Clear Skin

Surprising Ingredients for Clear Skin

Bet you didn’t know bamboo could clear your skin! The truth is, there are tons of superfoods out there with the power to heal acne and banish future breakouts. Read on to learn about some surprising skin-savers!


Clear skin might be the last thing you think of when someone mentions algae, but it’s actually a powerful skincare superfood! Green algaes like chlorella and spirulina are ultra-rich in chlorophyll (also known as the stuff that gives plants their green color), which delivers oxygen and detoxifies. We love adding these vitamin-rich ingredients to our routine for clearer, nourished skin. You can find both chlorella and spirulina in our award-winning Clean Greens powder-to-gel face mask! 


Not just for panda bears! Bamboo happens to be the world’s richest plant source of silica, which is a key building block of collagen. Collagen is naturally produced in our bodies, and is major for skin health (and hair and nails too!). You can actually boost your body’s own collagen levels – and improve your skin’s clarity, radiance, and elasticity – by supplementing with vegan superfoods like bamboo. The most delicious way to add bamboo to your routine? Our 100% plant-based creamer, Coconut Collagen Boost. With a dreamy vanilla-coconut flavor, it’s the perfect addition to your coffee, smoothies, oatmeal, you name it – the possibilities are endless. 


Turmeric is a root that has been used in Indian cuisine and Ayurvedic medicine for many thousands of years. It’s known for being an incredible anti-inflammatory and powerful antioxidant, and some say this superfood just might be the most effective nutritional supplement ever. When it comes to your skin, turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties can keep breakouts away, calm irritation, and help you get that golden glow. You can find this iconic spice in all of our Superfood Latte Blends. Check out our Pinterest for latte inspo!
