This Salad Serum Is Proof That Kale Is Slowly Taking Over The World

We don’t really believe in “beauty rules,” with one major exception: If it’s good for your insides, it’s good for your outsides, too. One of the best examples of this is kale, everyone’s favorite leafy, green superfood. Packed with vitamins A, E, and C, it’s got the eating-pretty market cornered. So, the question: Is kale just as good slathered on our faces as it is for dinner?

The answer is a resounding yes — at least, if we’re to use Éminence’s new Citrus & Kale serum as evidence. In addition to kale, it contains spinach, broccoli, avocado, lemon, and grapefruit. The brand claims this zesty spring salad of a serum can visibly brighten and lighten sun-damaged skin, prevent inflammation, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

So, what’s it like in real life? The natural, organic product is more like a toner than a serum — it’s light as water and absorbs quickly. A few drops applied to one of my hands made my skin instantly brighter and less splotchy than my other, untreated hand. Applied to my face, it’s illuminating and soothing.

I already eat kale pretty constantly throughout the week, so incorporating this into my beauty routine feels like a natural next step. The green is still the darling of the healthy-eating world, and now it seems primed to take over your skin-care routine, too. And, if this serum is any indicator, that’s only good news for our complexions.

Éminence Citrus & Kale Potent C E Serum, $110, available June 1 at Éminence.
