3 Tips to Prevent Dry, Winter Skin

Corn - A Secret Skin Energizer

When you think of natural skincare ingredients, plants such as aloe vera or rosemary might come to mind. But did you know that sweet corn can massively benefit the skin?

 Research has shown that sweet corn is one of the very few plants which produces glycogen as an energy source. This glycogen can provide massive benefit to our skin on a cellular level: promoting collagen and hyaluronic acid production, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, improving skin hydration levels, and reducing hyperpigmentation.

Cornmeal, a coarse flour made of ground yellow corn, is also a natural exfoliator. It fortifies your skin barrier function at the surface by stripping your skin of dead cells and debris. Cornmeal’s ferulic acid content also defends against environmental stressors and amplifies the effects of other antioxidants applied to the skin.
