Everything You Need to Know About Skin Superfoods

Sponsor Content Created With Sephora


For summer, we're running a series showcasing the skincare products of our most-loved beauty influencers and what they're buying at Sephora. Each week, we’re sending our favorite gurus to their local stores to document their entire shopping sprees on Byrdie's Snapchat. Make sure to tune in each Saturday to follow along, and check back here monthly to see (and shop!) the items that made it into their Sephora carts. Enjoy.

Glowing, smooth, clear, youthful-looking skin? There's a superfood for that. While we all know the health (and skin) benefits of eating a nutrient-rich diet, applying these boosters topically can also do your body good. Our favorite salad staples (we're looking at you, kale) have been making cameos in the skincare world for some time now, and with summer now in full swing, we're ready to get serious about our diets—our skin diets, that is.

Since health and beauty gurus Aja Dang, Candice Kumai, Yovana Mendoza, and Teni Panosian are all about living a healthy lifestyle both inside and out, we knew they'd be the perfect people to turn to for more info on this new wave of superfoods skincare (and they were game to share their go-to products from Sephora as well). Consider yourselves warned: The products you're about to read about are good enough to eat—almost.


Aja Dang, who recently turned 30, tells us she's worked hard to hone in on her ideal skincare routine, and she has one particular concern top of mind. "I've noticed how much my skin has changed over the years," she says. "I'm really in need of products that'll give me a healthy, youthful glow." Well, she went to the right place: Sephora at The Grove, where she spoke with Keisha, a senior Sephora skincare expert, who helped her find the ideal products to add to her routine. What'd they land on?


Candice Kumai has been leading a healthy lifestyle for years. The model turned chef and food writer dedicates the majority of her time to creating original content and developing recipes with good-for-you ingredients. Since she's been part of the wellness industry for quite some time, she has her skincare routine down pat. Her go-to products?


For Yovana Mendoza, a healthy lifestyle means feeding your body, mind, and spirit with the best of the best. And to her, that's living a raw vegan lifestyle. The Rawvana blogger is all about creating harmony in life and being mindful of what she's putting in and on her body. In other words, she doesn't just eat well—she makes sure her skin does, too.


L.A.-based beauty vlogger Teni Panosian says she feels her best when her skin is awake, glowing, and clear. How does she do it? She curates her skincare based on her schedule. Since she spent some time at the beach in Santa Monica she gave her skin some extra TLC as soon as she was home. 

If you're ready to start taking better care of your skin, make sure to check out all the must-try products infused with superfoods at Sephora.
