Just Another Reason to Love Chia

By now many of us have sprinkled Chia Seeds over our cereal, sipped it in our Kombucha, or blended some into a smoothie. Did you know you don’t have to just eat the superfood to reap its skincare benefit?

Chia Seeds have been proven to offer an array of beauty and skincare benefits when the oil is extracted from its natural state and applied topically. It’s the secret beauty ingredient that boasts amazing results and the product that has been missing in your daily regime. Here are some of the reasons why you need to Chia your skin!

It’s super hydrating, it reduces the appearance of ageing and fine lines and it protects and nourishes the skin’s moisture barrier- what more could you want?

Chia is naturally the richest botanical source of Omega 3 fatty acids. No wonder Chia Seeds have been utilised and idolised since the ancient times! Not only does Chia consist of Omega 3, but also the nutrient rich Omega 6. This power duo protects the skin from environmental forces and also assist in relieving and soothing the appearance of red and itchy skin conditions.

Sukin’s Chia Seed Oil also contains a blend of Hemp Seed, Olive Fruit and Baobab Oil which adds an amazing amount of complimentary hydrating properties into dry, dull skin. Super Green actives of Kale, Spirulina, Parsley and Chlorella are loved by both face and body as they give the skin both antioxidants and nutrients to assist in brightening the complexion and giving you that ‘glow’ everyone is always talking about. Do you happen to have oily skin? No stress- because while other oils may feel greasy and take a while to absorb, Chia oil is ultra-light and rapidly absorbs into the skin.

Gone are the days of flakey, dehydrated and uneven textured skin! Give your skin the TLC it needs and try adding Sukin Super Greens Nourishing Chia Seed Oil+ into your skincare regime - you won’t regret it!
