You can make breakfast pudding out of them, add them to your smoothies like Candice Swanepoel does, toss them in homemade energy bars, and now, you can rub them all over your face. That’s right, this tiny little superfood is bringing its beautiful benefits to your skincare routine.
How? By extracting the oil from the seed. Chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which is a triple treat: it’s an anti-inflammatory, it soothes and calms skin, and it helps restore hydration into your skin which fights against wrinkles and redness.
This powerful ingredient is being added to moisturizers, serums, face masks and more, so keep an eye out for chia-seed products, or follow the link below for a few you can purchase now.
