OK Babes!!! There’s a new skin superfood on the horizon + I’ve had my hands on it for a few months now. After using it every single night, traveling with it, experimenting with it + really diving into it… I’m super excited to say:
It IS worth the hype. And it is EVERYTHING.
So what’s this secret superfood I’ve been holding onto so dearly?
I’ll give you a hint: it’s a tiny leaf with a long stem. It’s mainly found in salads. And it’s grown in water.
Now, when I was first told about watercress, I imagined those white round things in Chinese food. But that’s water chestnut. WaterCRESS is this little leafy green that packs a mega PUNCH in keeping us young. It’s basically the new kale. And if I were a betting babe, I’d bet it’s going to surpass it’s very underrated status + probably pass kale in the health benefit race. I mean, there’s a reason Hippocrates (the infamous Greek father of medicine) selected the location of his first hospital based on its proximity to a stream where watercress grew.
So how do you get your hands on it? Well, I’ve been purchasing my watercress from Erewhon (an annoyingly bougie but really addictive, local grocery store). I’ve been adding it to my green smoothies.
But you don’t have to eat watercress to see its incredible anti-aging properties. You can also reap its benefits by applying it to your skin… in the form of OIL!!! And THIS oil babes, is hands down, 100 million percent the BEST oil I’ve ever used. I’m addicted. It is like liquid gold. I’m not joking.
I didn’t even make this product + I feel like it’s my baby. THAT’S how much I love it. And how much I truly believe in it.
