What is Kakadu plum, and why is it good for your skin?
The Kakadu Plum is a small fruit found in Northern Australia. They have the richest source of natural vitamin C of any food in the world and are packed with antioxidants.
Vitamin C is incredible for the skin, with a multitude of benefits. These include aiding in skin hydration, brightening, fading hyperpigmentation, and promoting collagen production and cell turnover. Its ability to assist in the production of collagen and evening skin tone also contribute to its youth-promoting characteristics; Helping with skin firming and the potential reduction of spots on the skin caused by ageing and sun damage.
Vitamin C also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it able to combat redness and help treat rosacea by soothing the skin. It also helps strengthen capillaries (which, when broken, can lead to more noticeable redness). Consistent use of Vitamin C has the potential to help protect against future rosacea flare-ups due to its ability to protect the skin from free radicals, some of which may be rosacea-causing.
