Corn can help treat pimples as well as slow down skin aging. It is therefore worth incorporating the Mexican superfood into your skin care routine!
Corn is rich in important nutrients and contains a lot of vitamin E , which nourishes the skin and protects against free radicals.
Vegetable vitamin E has a much higher bioavailability and can be absorbed and utilized by the skin much better than synthetically produced vitamin E.
In addition, corn has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin and can therefore help in the treatment of inflammatory skin diseases such as pimples as well as inflammatory processes that accelerate skin aging.
Corn is not just corn!
