It goes without saying that we’re big on skincare over at Goju. As a business focused on health and wellness from the inside out, our first point of call for healthy skin doesn’t come from serums or rose-quartz gua sha’s, it’s from the food we ingest. (Although, who doesn’t love a good facial roller?!)
Your skin is a reflection of your overall health, and what you eat plays a crucial role in keeping it healthy and glowing. A balanced diet rich in vitamins, healthy fats, and antioxidants is essential to maintain healthy skin.
Never ones to gatekeep beauty tips, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite skin-loving foods that you can find at the supermarket to help promote a radiant and glowing complexion:
