Superfoods Benefit Your Body Inside and Out

Superfoods are all the rage these days. Do you know why? It is because they contain the building blocks our bodies require for optimum health. Only certain foods are considered superfoods. Through scientific studies certain foods have been found to contain high amounts of: 


  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Antioxidants
  • Low in Calories

Learning about and understanding what antioxidants provide is an important part of maintaining our overall health. Antioxidants help stop free radicals from attacking our bodies. "Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage cells, causing illness and aging.”

Superfoods are Abundant. 

When you think of superfoods, do you think of exotic fruits with hefty price tags? That’s not what they are. In fact, superfoods are usually local produce. They are abundant and easily accessible from your local grocer or farmers' market. Harvard Health explains further that enjoying a wide range of superfoods in our daily diet is essential. 

Eating a Variety of Superfoods Helps your Skin and Body

Remember that variety is the spice of life. We can find huge health benefits from consuming


Berries rich in color reduce signs of stress. They are rich in fiber. Berries contain ellagic acid, which may help protect skin collagen from breaking down in UV light. They also contain anthocyanins and resveratrol that may protect against cancers.

 

Dark green leafy vegetables provide you with carotenoids. These antioxidants are cell protectors and help block the early stages of cancer. These are also rich in lutein that helps protect us from ultraviolet light damage. 


Cruciferous vegetables include:


  • Broccoli
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Kale

These vegetables contain polyphenols that help protect your body from oxidative stress. These vegetables also contain vitamin C and carotenoids. 


Nuts and seeds such as walnuts and sunflower seeds are wonderful for the skin. “In general nuts and seeds are good sources of skin boosting elements,” says Healthline. They contain

  • Protein, 
  • Vitamins 
  • Essential elements required for healthy skin.

Whole Grains such as buckwheat contain rutin which helps with skin inflammation. Wheatgerm is an excellent source of biotin, a B vitamin that helps your cells process fat. Without enough biotin, your skin can become dry.


Fish is an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids that help your skin balance oils and moisture, reduce acne and slow signs of aging. Omega 3's can also help smooth and soften dry skin.

Superfoods Help Protect You from Sunburn

Isn’t it interesting that eating correctly has such profound effects on our physical bodies. These natural foods also provide us with protection from the burning rays of the sun. 


  • Dark Chocolate has been shown to reduce sunburn in women while also hydrating the skin.
  • Green tea helps protect the body from tumors.
  • Wild Salmon, nuts, and seeds contain omega 3’s. Omega 3’s helps your skin deal with extremes, such as too much sun.
  • Blueberries help fight free radicals
  • Watermelon, contains lycopene that absorbs UVA and UVB light. It can take a while for it to build up in your system, so consume it often.

These are just a few of the amazing foods that protect our skin.

By including these ingredients in our diet, we may lessen the chance of becoming badly burned or overly sensitive to the sun's rays.


It should be pointed out that it matters when you consume foods that give you sun protection. According to Healthline, you should eat these foods in the daytime and not as a mid-night snack.

Including Superfoods in our Daily Lives is Simple

Through the consumption of superfoods, we empower our bodies to heal from the inside out. These foods are often delicious and are already a part of our daily lives. We eat and drink superfoods 


  • During meals and snacks
  • By making smoothies with them as a refreshing and filling treat.
  • By juicing them to drink as internal juice cleanses and energizing drinks. 

What You Put on Your Skin is as Important as What You Put in Your Body

It is easy to understand that eating a well balanced diet full of beneficial food is important to your health. What and how you eat can reflect on your outer appearance. Just as you do not want to stuff your body with junk food and empty calories, you should also avoid putting junk on your skin.

The Largest Organ of Your Body is Your Skin

Your skin is the largest organ of your body. It protects you from many things you come into contact with throughout your daily life. Your skin helps regulate your body temperature so that you are able to adjust to heat and cold.


It is your skin that allows you to feel things through touch and to sense hot and cold. Skin protects you from the sun and filters many of the chemicals and pathogens we come in ‘contact with on a daily basis. It is one of your first lines of defense to the outside world. 


Your skin is also absorbent. Like a sponge, it pulls in what is around you. It lets you know if you are sensitive to certain external pollutants and chemicals through unpleasant reactions such as hives, dryness, or blisters.


What you put on your skin can readily be absorbed into your body. If the chemicals in your store-bought lotions are toxic when ingested, how can they be beneficial to your skin? This is why it is important to your health to pay attention to what you are putting on your skin.


Buying nourishing skin products doesn’t mean you can throw away your healthy foods. These products will help nourish you from the outside. Eating a diet rich in superfoods will help your body from the inside. Used together you have a powerful defensive system. 

Avoid Putting These Chemicals on Your Skin

Many skincare products readily available on store shelves contain nasty chemicals and fragrances. Not only do these products mask problems on the skin, but they can also cause further damage and could make us sick.


Whenever you are buying skincare products, read the labels and watch out for the following ingredients.

Say No to Fragrances 

Fragrances can have a profound effect on us. They can cause contact dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. Man-made fragrances are the worst because they contain solvents and preservatives. However, even organic fragrances can be irritating to our skin. Piperberry’s skincare products do not contain fragrances.

Chemicals and Compounds to Avoid

There are so many chemicals in our products today. Without having the necessary knowledge, it is easy for us to glance at the ingredient list and decide that no one would add potentially harmful substances to our beauty products. Unfortunately, this couldn’t be further from the truth!


Some products contain phthalates. Phthalates are used to soften plastic. When used in skincare products, they are meant to soften skin. Some phthalates are used to enhance  scents, such as DEP or diethyl phthalate.


Phthalates disrupt our endocrine system and could mess with how our hormones behave. Search for products that say they are phthalate free, as cosmetics are not required to list them.


Parabens should also be avoided. Parabens hinder the growth of mold and bacteria in products to give them a longer shelf life. Parabens have been known to pass through the skin and remain within your body. In fact, parabens have been found in breast cancer tissue


Like phthalates, parabens disrupt our endocrine system and can interfere with how our hormones work. Some mimic hormones others block certain hormones. Parabens commonly found in skincare products are:


  • Isobutylparaben
  • Propylparben
  • Butylparaben
  • Methylparaben

Formaldehyde and formaldehyde releasing preservatives, also known as FRP’s. are found in skincare and cosmetics. This chemical is a known carcinogen. It can cause cancer. It also causes skin irritations such as contact dermatitis even in small quantities.


Watch for and avoid  these ingredients in your skincare products

  • Quaternium-15
  • DMDM hydantoin
  • Imidazolidinyl urea
  • Polyoxymethylene urea
  • Much more

You should also avoid alcohol in your skincare and cosmetics. Denatured alcohols such as isopropanol is extremely irritating to the skin. Denatured alcohol in products can cause damage to your skin’s natural barrier. This damage could wreak havoc on your skin’s ability to retain moisture.

Piperberry Has Natural and Organic Superfood Solutions 

Piperberry realizes the dangers our skin protects us from. Their products are free of fragrances, dyes, and harsh chemicals that could make you sick. 


They offer natural skincare products that truly protect and nurture your skin and thus your body. With sustainable natural products that do what they say you are sure to find what you need.


It is not indulging to care for yourself in the best way possible. As we learn more about our chemical laden world today, it is no wonder we are returning to nature to meet our health and body care needs. By using superfood based cleansers and skin products you are benefitting your entire body.
