You might be familiar with this colourful root vegetable in your favourite salad, but did you know beetroot can work wonders when applied to your skin?
This amazing skincare ingredient is capable of more than one may realize. On top of having anti-bacterial properties, studies show that its vitamin C content is anti-inflammatory and can help repair skin because of its part in collagen synthesis.
You might be wondering, how does this overlooked ingredient pack so much punch?
Beetroot is high in folate, antioxidants, vitamin B6 and manganese, all things that can help your skin look and feel its best! This powerhouse root vegetable can also stimulate blood flow because it increases nitric oxide levels in your body. Not only can it help your body receive the oxygen it needs faster, but also, when used on your skin, expect to feel rejuvenated as beetroot can help with blood circulation when applied topically.
How do can we take advantage of these benefits, you might ask?
This superfood for your skin is one of the key ingredients in our Purify Clay Mask! Once it's on your skin, wait 15-20 minutes (or until it's dry) and rinse, and be prepared to be refreshed. You can also use this mask as a spot treatment for acne, dark circles and hyperpigmentation.
Another way I use beetroot powder in my weekly routine is with its Blume's Beetroot Blend. I add a teaspoon to a cup of oat milk and steam it up!
These health benefits are not to be missed!
