Hot Ingredient: Watercress

Watercress has an abundance of nutrients that help to detoxify and purify the skin. Sulforaphane, a naturally occurring compound in watercress also has antimicrobial, anticancer, and anti-diabetic properties. When applied topically it protects the skin against UV radiation damage, thus protecting against skin cancer. Some of our favorite products that contain watercress are Super by Dr. Nicholas Perricone Detox Elixir, Cellex-C Sea Silk Oil-Free Moisturizer, and Thalgo Ocea Perfect hair and nail supplement.
Super by Dr. Nicholas Perricone Detox Elixir: Detox Elixir is formulated with Sulforaphane, found in Watercress, to detoxify skin and refine pores. Can be used as a gentle exfoliator after cleansing, or as a refreshing mist sprayed throughout the day to wash away toxins and reveal a fresh, flawless face.
