Tear your mind away from the food fantasies the title may have provoked and think literally. You see, your face, or at least, the skin on your face, may be trying to ask you for help in the dry winter months!

You’ll be able to feel it and see it, rather than hear it, of course. Look out for how your family members are doing too because after this, you will have a two-pronged plan to feed your face what it needs when the temperature drops and the rains stop.

  1. Feed yourself food to help your face
  2. Feed the skin on your face

What You Eat Matters to Your Face

You know this, we all do. But let’s face it - ‘scuse the pun, chocolate cravings are hard to resist. Yet, the glowing pimple that pops up on your face because of it pretty much carves your regret in stone. 

Foods rich in vitamins A, C, and E noticeably benefit the skin on your face. So will drinking the daily water requirement you also know ought to happen. 

Hot tip: Moms, we know you teach skincare to your daughters, but what about their father and your sons? SA men are beginning to wake up to skincare - it’s that or cancerous old-age skin!

What’s on the Menu for Your Skin?

Your skin is not asking a lot, just mindful eating to cover the bases your face needs. Food rich in vitamins and antioxidants will do for starters, mains and dessert:

  • Avocado
  • Banana
  • Gooseberry
  • Papaya
  • Pineapple

Real health altruists will use those same foods straight on the skin as a mask also! 

Feeding the Skin on Your Face 

Your skin does some self-help manoeuvres of its own without any effort on your part. It keeps itself constantly hydrated by extracting moisture from the atmosphere. Understandably, it struggles more with this in the winter months -  which is where you come in.

Here are some dos and don’ts:

Don’t scrub or over wash your face. Twice a day is fine enough. Else you’re only dehydrating it.
Don’t use products with parabens, irritants or chemicals on your face.
Don’t wash your face in hot water - lukewarm is best.


Do exfoliate properly. Gently rotations will increase blood flow to your skin.
Do use an organic formulation for the skin on your face.
Do invest in a simple home humidifier, your whole family will benefit.

In summary; a few smart habits for yourself and your family will keep your faces glowing with health, elasticity, and vibrancy. Wait to you read the menu of natural ingredients used for Supersalve Plus!
