We're constantly discussing the best ingredients to put on our skin, trying potions for anti-aging, brightening, and smoothing on a daily basis. But it's important to remember it matters what you put inside your body as well.
To find out the best combination of skincare and body care, we tapped McKel Hill, registered dietitian and creator of the healthy living website Nutrition Stripped. Hill recently teamed up with Fresh for the launch of the brand's Vitamin Nectar face mask, as it includes crushed oranges, lemons, and clementines to impart a natural glow to your skin. Such ingredients are a huge part of Hill's recipes that promote a healthy body, soul, and of course, beautiful skin. Naturally it's a match made in heaven.
"I am inspired—okay, obsessed—by how nutrition affects our skin's health," says Lev Glazman, Fresh's co-founder and president of research and development. "After years of working closely with the Fresh research lab, we have bridged the world of vitamins into skincare—or, as we call it, skin nutrition—to create this highly innovative mask that awakens skin, minimizes signs of fatigue, and reveals a vibrant, healthy-looking glow."
As you probably already know, everyday environmental stressors can result in dull, tired skin. So Hill created five custom recipes featuring the same vitamin-packed ingredients found in the mask: clementines, lemons, and oranges. They taste delicious, are super easy to make, and will help keep your skin bright and healthy from the inside out. That, and if you make them while wearing the mask, you'll be killing two birds with one stone.
Just as taking a supplement provides both an instant pick-me-up and long-term health benefits, Fresh's Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask ($62) delivers an immediate boost that increases dramatically over time. The formula features an unprecedented level of food-grade ingredients, and because these fruits are naturally packed with AHAs as well as a blend of vitamin C, E, and B5, the mask gently refines the skin to improve clarity, soften, and smooth. Good skin? Check. Healthy body? Check, check.
Now all you have to do is press play, take a few notes, and you'll be glowing in no time.
