Chia seeds aren’t only an exceptional ingredient for your detoxifying morning puddings, but also for nourishing your skin and helping it to eliminate toxins. Chia seeds are a nutritional powerhouse, loaded with antioxidant and skin protecting vitamin E, which diminishes the aging signs and help your cells fight against free radical damage. Their natural healthy fat and mineral content ensures your skin stays hydrated and moisturized, while maintaining a healthy mineral exchange at the cell membrane level. Combine chia seeds with oats for an exfoliating effect and add lemon to clear your skin spots and leave it glowing and hydrated.
