Superfoods: To Know Them is To Love Them
We’ve all been there… ogling someone’s gorgeously overflowing acai bowl or chia pudding on Instagram. Or staring wistfully into the rainbow colors of a kale salad, brimming with all kinds of wholesome goodness (#foodporn for days).
We know the afternoon satisfaction that a frothy matcha latte brings to our lives, or the glorious richness of literally anything with cacao in it. And don’t even get us started on coconuts…
So here’s a little love letter, an ode to a few of our favorite Cancun Collection superfoods, the ones we’re lucky enough to work with and talk about on the reg because they’re part of what we do: wrangle their awesomeness to help you look and feel your best. Stay tuned for more of these, this is just the beginning – there’s lots more superfood love coming your way.
Let’s start with the simple, beautiful acai berry. For eating pretty, we have our delicious and oh so good-looking acai bowls and smoothies. You can also use acai powder to “cook” up some raw acai bites (how amazing do these look?)
Acai berries are higher in antioxidants than blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries (though all are amazing for you – and what a taste combo when they’re eaten altogether!)
But how about when they’re used ON your body, what are their skin benefits? Well, acai is known as the natural solution to anti-aging. High in antioxidants and jam-packed with fatty acids (omega 3, 6 and 9) it helps restore the skin’s elasticity. Hello, supple skin!
Tiny chia seeds. So small, yet so mighty. These guys are serious hydration bombs (and we all know how important that is).
These little dudes are everywhere these days – in pudding, cereal and granola, in bars, and in smoothies.
As for topical benefits – chia seeds deliver the goods – their oil is full of omega-3 fatty acids, the building blocks of healthy cell membranes. These (super) good fats also help to amp up the skin’s natural oil barrier, keeping it (you guessed it) hydrated. Hydrated = plumper, and plumper = younger looking.
Welcome our lightweight Chia Seed Dry Body Oil and Acai Deep Tanning Oil – both made with natural and nourishing ingredients for a flawless skin finish. Infused with antioxidant goodness to give your skin exactly what it needs to look and feel as radiant as you are.
