You’ve heard about 10-step skincare, you’ve heard about skipcare, and now there’s a newcomer on the rise: meet Salad Skincare. Trust us, it makes sense. So, what is Salad Skincare? Byrdie’s Hallie Gould introduced the term recently in their newsletter. Basically, there are superfoods — raw food ingredients like kale and tomato, which are packed with nutrients and minerals that, when ingested or incorporated into your daily diet, do wonders for the skin. We know skincare is just as much about feeding your body as it is about putting stuff on it. But what if it was applied topically? Hold off on those sliced cucumbers for now.
Salad Skincare draws on the idea that plant-based skincare products, particularly those featuring superfoods as their main ingredients, will nourish your skin from the outside as well as it does on the inside. While there are DIY masks you can whip up easily from your kitchen cabinet, we’re talking more about professional formulations backed by science and research which you can add to your everyday skincare routine. Here are our product recommendations to get you started.
