The Natural Face Oil by @f.miller.skincare uses organic sunflower oil.

1. Sunflower Seeds

I always have a jar of toasted sunflower seeds in my pantry to throw into salads and dishes. They are rich in fatty acids, like linolenic and oleic acid, which are essential in helping the body to form collagen – the secret to plump skin! Sunflower seeds are also a great source of antioxidants, like Vitamin E, which helps fight free radical damage. Plus, these seeds are great for bringing down inflammation within the body, helping to keep the skin clear.

Sunflower seeds are also fantastic when applied topically to the skin. The Natural Face Oil by F. Miller Skincare uses organic sunflower oil as one of its star ingredients. It is a beautiful, lightweight oil that visibly leaves the skin hydrated, nourished, and glowing from within. It is a wonder for mature skin, as it restores radiance, enhances elasticity, and helps protect against environmental stressors.

2. Aloe Vera

Aloe is a heal-all ingredient. It can rapidly calm irritation, like sunburns or wounds. It is also fantastic when consumed as juice! It is very water-dense, so it is an incredible source of hydration, which in turn helps our skin stay hydrated and plump. Aloe can also help neutralize the effects of UV radiation on the skin. Plus, aloe can repair the skin from existing sun damage, working to prevent wrinkles and sunspots.

Aloe is also incredible for supporting the digestive system, which if operating at its best, helps the skin get the right nutrients. A slow digestive system isn’t able to absorb all the nutrients you’re eating! The ECM Advanced Repair Balancing Toner by Albiva uses organic aloe to deeply hydrate the skin following your daily cleanse. It is formulated to optimize the skin’s natural barrier and accelerate cell turnover, which slows down as the body ages.

3. Chamomile

What isn’t to love about chamomile? The smell, the taste, and the feeling you get after drinking a warm cup of chamomile tea. It is an anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial wonder, which is why it is usually used to treat nasty colds. Since mature skin takes a bit longer to heal, it is key to treat inflammation and from the inside too.

While chamomile treats inflammation, it also pumps the body full of antioxidants, helping to protect the skin against free-radical damage, also known as wrinkles! It also accelerates cell and tissue regeneration, which slows down dramatically as we age. The Natural Eye Oil by F. Miller Skincare uses chamomile to deliver hydration and brightness to the delicate eye area. Since this product has a cooling stainless steel roller ball, I recommend keeping this eye oil in the fridge for an extra de-puffing and soothing treat in the morning.

4. Shiitake Mushrooms

Not only are shiitake my favourite mushrooms but they are a true skin food. They are rich in vitamin A, vitamin E, and selenium, which are essential in keeping mature skin radiant and glowing. Shiitake also contains kojic acid, which naturally treats scars and sunspots. Plus, this particular mushroom is incredibly anti-inflammatory, helping to ease conditions like eczema and rosacea. Thanks to vitamin D, shiitake aids in helping the skin defend itself from environmental stressors, which can cause premature lines.

They are also an amazing source of copper, which is essential in boosting the body’s natural collagen and elastin production. Mushrooms, in general, are fantastic for the body and the skin. The Golden Shrooms powder by Wunder Workshop is an amazing way to incorporate apoptogenic mushrooms into your daily diet. This mushroom formula helps restless minds get the beauty sleep they need to wake up with a fresher complexion and brighter eyes!

5. Saffron

Saffron is one of the most expensive spices for a reason. Not only is it incredible for adding flavor, but it has a range of benefits for the skin. It is a very powerful antioxidant, helping to protect cells against wrinkle-causing free radicals. Crocin is what makes saffron red, and it is also what provides a high dose of antioxidants! It is responsible for helping the skin fight pollution while also reducing wrinkles and lifting the skin. Saffron is a favourite ingredient of Shiva Rose, who says it is “a magical ingredient that does wonders for clarifying the skin and evening out its tone.” [Shiva Rose, Whole Beauty].

Saffron actually has a very high vitamin C content, helping to brighten the skin and fade any dark spots. The Saffron Rose Facial Scrub by Shiva Rose is an amazing way to incorporate saffron into your skincare routine. It is a fantastic manual exfoliation that gently scrubs away dead skin while leaving the skin hydrated and brightened.
