Australian top model Miranda Kerr has surprised us with her revelations about a spoonful of coconut oil a day and rosehip oil against wrinkles. Now, she suggests another super-product that will soon be the leader of sales. Miranda’s confidences used to increase the sales of coconut oil in European supermarkets by times.
Chia (Salvia hispanica) as an Anti-Ageing Ingredient
Miranda’s new fad is chia seeds. These seeds are the main food in South America, as well as corn. Why are they so valuable for youth and beauty? Why are they presented as a unique anti-ageing ingredient? By the way, another star, Gwyneth Paltrow, got interested in the magic seeds as well.
How Does Chia Work against Aging?
Cold pressed chia seed oil is one of the richest sources of omega-3 fatty acids. These healthy fats are even more abundant here than in the flax seed. In addition, chia seeds are high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, so chia oil can protect, soothe and restore the skin and moisturize it.
Where to Find the Chia Oil?
Chia seed oil is the basis for the products created by the Perricone MD brand. The brand was founded by dermatologist Dr. Nicholas Perricone. His magical serum, developed on the basis of chia seeds, is used by model Miranda Kerr.
Gwyneth Paltrow admires another product on the basis of chia seed oil – Skin Regimen Hydra-Pro Booster.
Do you believe in the magic of chia seeds, or is this another “last month’s sensation”, just as almond oil, goji berries, acai fruit, blueberries and broccoli once used to be?
