Superfoods are a group of foods that are given a “superpower” for being a source of a multitude of nutrients such as proteins, vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, minerals and antioxidants. As a result, they are gaining prominence in our kitchens and in skin care treatments.

It should be noted that, although these superfoods are beneficial for the skin and the body, they are not miracle products, but complementary to a healthy lifestyle.
