There’s no denying that we are in the epoch of the Superfood: the crème-de-la-crème, often hard-to-pronounce ingredients with coveted powers that reign supreme in health food stores and likewise, pack a punch in your salads and smoothies. Fad foods are known to work wonders on the body, which raises the question—is it possible to eat your way to beauty, inside-out? 

 It may not surprise you that the answer is yes: The solution reveals itself in the form of Raw Complexions’ Skintox. The raw formula combines the best attributes of sought-after superfoods, whose properties are known to yield satisfying results. Rather than bothering with topical gels and the tricky business of supplements that oft disappoint, the powder’s potent ingredients such as camu camu, bee pollen, schisandra berry and flax meal speak—and act—for themselves.

 Add one spoonful of the Skintox powder to the smoothie or juice of your choice. Whether it be an additional boost to your morning, a post-work out indulgence, or an afternoon pick-me-up Skintox excels in its ability to seamlessly integrate itself into your diet, delivering an abundance of nutrients, with a side of glowing skin. After just three consecutive days of adding the Skintox to fresh juice (once a day is all that’s needed to see results), I started to notice my complexion develop a healthy glow—a radiance that I realized couldn’t come from a foundation or moisturizer, but from inside-out. An added bonus: it looks just as good in your beauty cabinet as it does on your kitchen counter.
