The Beauty Benefits Of Fruits And Vegetables

We’re always told we should eat more fruits and veggies, but did you know they are fantastic for our skin too? SheSaid chats with Yes To co-founder Lance Kalish about the beauty benefits of tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers.

1. We know that we should eat more fruits and vegetables, but how effective are they for our skin?

Vegetables, particularly carrots offer a brilliant source of antioxidants and vitamins to help fight environmental aggressors and to keep our skin feeling and looking happy! Vegetables truly are your skins best friend they are packed with goodness that will nourish, protect and soothe your skin, body and hair naturally.

2. What are the beauty benefits of tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers?

Fruits and veggies such as tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers contain antioxidants that fight free radicals and protect the hair and skin from environmental damage.

Yes To Carrots has been created to nourish skin and hair. Carrots are packed with beta-carotene, a powerful anti-oxidant that protects and nourishes your skin and hair, leaving it soft and radiant.

Yes To Cucumbers offers hypoallergenic face and body products that are specially formulated for sensitive skin or those looking for a gentler, more lightweight formula for cleansing and hydration. Cucumbers help to soothe, protect, and calm skin, while providing gentle hydration and essential vitamins.

The Yes To Tomatoes Clear Skin formulas target combination and oily skin types, for those looking to refresh and clear skin naturally. Tomatoes contain natural fruity acids that work to exfoliate and cleanse combination skin and to help control sebum and oil production.

3. You also use Dead Sea minerals in your products. Can you tell us why they are good for our skin?

Dead Sea Mud and Minerals work to lock in vitamins, moisture, and antioxidants from our rich fruit and vegetable ingredients. It’s now been scientifically proven that Dead Sea Mud and Minerals actually do have a profound beautifying influence due to natural exfoliating agents and detoxifying properties.

4. Why is natural skincare so important? How does natural skincare compare to most supermarket and department store skincare?

Natural skincare is so important because what you put ON your body is as important to what you put IN your body. Lotions and creams are absorbed into the body’s bloodstream through a person’s skin, so it has become essential that consumers fully understand and are aware of exactly what ingredients they are allowing to enter their body. Many of the ingredients used in the conventional supermarket and department store skincare brands, such as parabens and phthalates to name a few, have been linked to serious health concerns. Natural skincare strives to set a benchmark for which ingredients should and should not be allowed in skincare, and to incorporate as a high a percentage of natural and naturally derived ingredients in a product as possible.

5. What are 3 your favourites product from the Yes To range and why?

My favourite products are the Yes To Cucumber Facial Towelettes, because you can take it anywhere and it gives you that fresh and clean feeling quickly and easily! Our Yes To Carrots Pomegranate Lip Butter with SPF 15 is also one of my favourite products – in the harsh sun and dry winter we have in Australia, I carry my Lip Butter in both pockets and love the feel and smoothness and protection it provides. Finally I don’t feel squeaky clean if I haven’t showered every day with my favourite Yes To Tomatoes Shower Gel!
