Though most of us make a point of adding kale to our smoothies and chia seeds to our breakfast bowls, how do we ensure we’re getting just as many vitamins on the outside as we are on the inside? Certain ingredients can do great things for your complexion too, as natural beauty brand Puretopia proves!

Avocado oil

Not just for guacamole, avocado also does wonders for your skin. Avocado oil is antioxidant-packed, with vitamins E to hydrate at a deeper level and skin-loving fatty acids to help keep the wrinkles at bay!

Shea Butter

Do you suffer from pesky crow’s feet, stretch marks and other fine lines? Shea Butter, with its high concentration of skin-smoothing vitamin A and E, is worth considering. The creamy nut butter boosts collagen production and works to de-puff while being gentle enough to be used around the delicate eye area.

Olive fruit oil

More than just a condiment, Olive fruit oil is deeply hydrating and rich in antioxidants and fatty acids to protect the skin from harm. It also has slow absorption through skin meaning it’ll keep it hydrated for longer and help and balance your skin’s moisture levels.

Used since ancient times and named the ‘plant of immortality’ by the ancient Egyptians, it’s like a cocktail of vitamins and nutrients to help hydrate and boost collagen production. Want more? It also has healing and anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce skin inflammation.
