Quinoa is a powerhouse superfood to eat and add to your skin care regimen!

Quinoa has been found to inhibit the activity of matrix metalloproteinases—MMPs—that cause collagen breakdown.  It can lighten sun spots by blocking the enzyme required to produce hyper-pigmentation, and acts as an antioxidant to quell free radical-induced inflammation.

Quinoa is also naturally rich in collagen, which is essential for maturing skin, which offers it the ability to reduce wrinkles.  Quinoa can also calm acne by inhibiting excess sebum secretion.

Quinoa - the superfood for ALL!
