You know you’ve really indulged when you find yourself actually craving kale salads and green juices chock-full of antioxidants and vitamins that would ordinarily leave your repulsed. While eating a healthy diet with plenty of leafy greens is essential nourishment for your body, overall well-being and, yes, even your skin, there are some serious benefits to applying superfoods and greens topically as well. Superfood face masks are a great way to give your skin a dose of topical nutrition.
Kale for instance, is rich in vitamins A, C and K, as well as iron and omega fatty acids—all of which are commonly used active ingredients in anti-aging skin-care products. Other green fruit and veggies like spinach and avocado are also rich in omega-3 and -6 along with iron, vitamin C and chlorophyll.
These vitamins and nutrients not only have major skin-enhancing benefits when we eat them, but they also offer anti-aging benefits when applied directly to the skin as well. Whether or not you’re planning on going on a juice cleanse or not, your skin will thank you for treating it to these nutrient-dense face masks.

1. Pacifica Kale Charcoal Ultimate Detox Mask
This green mask is the ultimate solution for detoxing congested pores without completely stripping the skin of all moisture (as many charcoal masks do). Containing a blend of charcoal and clay to help penetrate the pores and remove impurities, it’s also infused with nourishing ingredients like kale and aloe vera to keep moisture levels balanced.
2. Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask
This hydrating mask contains an anti-aging cocktail of Japanese seaweed, avocado, and apricot kernel oil to help replenish moisture to the skin. This refreshing mask is especially ideal to use after long flights (or just a long week).
3. Innisfree Green Barley Peeling Mask
This K-beauty mask gently exfoliates the skin with natural fermented barley vinegar that works like a natural AHA to slough away dead skin cells.
4. Sircuit Skin Clarity Broccoli Sulfur Mask
This multifunctional mask combines the acne-fighting powers of sulfur with broccoli—a nourishing superfood that helps fight inflammation in both the body and the skin.
