Everything You Need to Know About Skin Superfoods

For summer, we're running a series showcasing the skincare products of our most-loved beauty influencers and what they're buying at Sephora. Each week, we’re sending our favorite gurus to their local stores to document their entire shopping sprees on Byrdie's Snapchat. Make sure to tune in each Saturday to follow along, and check back here monthly to see (and shop!) the items that made it into their Sephora carts. Enjoy.

Glowing, smooth, clear, youthful-looking skin? There's a superfood for that. While we all know the health (and skin) benefits of eating a nutrient-rich diet, applying these boosters topically can also do your body good. Our favorite salad staples (we're looking at you, kale) have been making cameos in the skincare world for some time now, and with summer now in full swing, we're ready to get serious about our diets—our skin diets, that is.

Since health and beauty gurus Aja Dang, Candice Kumai, Yovana Mendoza, and Teni Panosian are all about living a healthy lifestyle both inside and out, we knew they'd be the perfect people to turn to for more info on this new wave of superfoods skincare (and they were game to share their go-to products from Sephora as well). Consider yourselves warned: The products you're about to read about are good enough to eat—almost.
