We all know eating a salad is good for your insides. Dark leafy greens are some of the most energizing foods available. And, in addition to being chock-full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, they also deliver a chlorophyll boost to your digestive tract and liver, helping to rid your body of environmental toxins you ingest from metals, herbicides, pesticides, and more. Broccoli is full of nutrients and natural fiber, which makes you feel satisfied longer while helping you maintain a healthy digestive tract. Tomato offers extra carotenoids like red carotenoid lycopene to combat the formation of free radicals. This is nothing new, right? Eating nutrient-rich foods is great for your health and body. But, what may come as a surprise is that you can use them topically as well—and the results are dramatic.

Below, we go through a few of our favorite salad ingredients and offer up reasons why you should wear them on your face as well as consume them during dinner. Each one has various superfood benefits—from hydration and sun protection to brightening and anti-aging. And, there are a ton of really great product offerings to get a proper serving of fruits and veggies on the daily. Keep scrolling to read about our favorites.
