The avocado and cocoa combo that’s seriously good for skin

Meet the superfood skin mask that looks and smells good enough to eat, and will leave you positively glowing.

In winter it’s common for our skin to be feeling lacklustre, dull and depleted, as the cold weather, harsh winds and dehydrating central heating take their toll.

How about a face mask that will super-charge your complexion straight back to glowing?

And what if we told you of one that not only looks and smells like a jar of melted chocolate?

Welcome to the world of superfood infused face masks.

What exactly is a superfood mask?

Andalou Naturals’ Age Defying Avo Cocoa Skin Food Mask looks good enough to eat but this jar of yumminess is food for your skin, not your stomach.

A high-performing treatment designed to nourish and deeply condition, it cleverly blends fruit stem cell complex and resveratrol CoQ10 with organic avocado oil and pure dark cocoa, all abundant in antioxidants and amino acids. Let’s look at those ingredients.

1. Fruit stem cell complex

Using advanced technology, Andalou extracts some of nature’s most potent bioactive stem cells from the heirloom apple, grape, Swiss alpine rose, argan tree and hemp tree.

The fruit stem cells are packaged up in a liposome (used to “hold” stem cells) and blended into Andalou’s formulations to support skin protection, restoration and radiance.

2. Resveratrol CoQ10

A powerhouse combo, these ingredients sound like a sciency mouthful but are easily explained.

Resveratrol is a natural compound found in red grapes and wine and some other plants and is a powerful antioxidant.

Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10, is also a potent antioxidant produced naturally in our bodies and essential for energy production.

3. A for avocado

Loaded with healthy fats, fibre and a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals, avocados are high in potassium and heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, as well as fibre and antioxidants.

This versatile stone fruit is fast gaining in popularity as a natural ingredient in skincare for its moisturising properties and ability to help restore and smooth skin.

4. Can-do cocoa

More than just a delicious drink, cocoa contains a bunch of beneficial compounds, including body boosting nutrients.

One of the richest sources of polyphenols, it’s abundant in flavonols, which have potent antioxidant effects.

Science shows cocoa is also good for skin – antioxidants and amino acids help sustain healthy skin and protect against elemental damage.

So there you have it, a face mask that looks good, smells great and is rich, hydrating and nourishing for skin.

A high-performance, results-driven, multi-sensory experience that will have all your friends asking where your glow came from. Just don’t be tempted to eat it!
