Many of us start our days by drinking a glass of lemon water, but do you know why that can be beneficial for your health and skin? 🍋
Among other things, lemons are rich in polyphenols (a powerful plant compound) that have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
When ingested, polyphenols have been shown to help balance blood glucose levels and improve insulin resistance, to aid digestion and support a healthy weight.
🌿 In the skin, polyphenols have shown to reduce inflammation, support the production of collagen by fighting off free radicals, and aid the repair of DNA on a cellular level, to prevent and reverse premature signs of aging from exposure to solar UV light.
Furthermore, polyphenols are also great team players and help to protect for example Vitamin E from oxidation, so they are essential to ensure that you benefit fully from the goodness in your self-care routine.
One of many reasons why we love polyphenol-rich botanical skincare.
