The Benefits of Chlorophyll in Skincare
Chlorophyll has been making headlines in the skincare world over the past few months, thanks to a certain trend on TikTok with users claiming drinking liquid chlorophyll is good for acne-prone skin. While we can’t attest to this, there are a lot of chlorophyll benefits when it comes to topical skincare – and some high performing products containing the green good stuff, making it easy to incorporate this power ingredient into your routine.
What is chlorophyll?
Dig back to your school days and you may remember that chlorophyll is the compound that gives plants their green colour through the process of photosynthesis. It allows plants to absorb energy from light. Chlorophyll is present in most green vegetables with some studies suggesting it has health benefits when ingested, such as boosting energy levels and helping keep certain illnesses at bay.
What does chlorophyll do for your skin?
Chlorophyll has antioxidant properties and is high in vitamins C, A and E, which can help reduce the visible signs of ageing in the skin. Some studies have also shown that when applying chlorophyll topically, it has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which could help reduce acne.
