Beauty Dust by Moon Juice

 An image of Moon Juice Beauty Dust - Adaptogens for Skin

Adaptogenic nourishment for the skin.

Skin is the body’s largest organ — so, it should be nourished in its entirety, rather than in parts (i.e. the face or hands). Edible adaptogens + superherbs, such as amla and ashwagandha, promote a healthy glow by calming oxidative stress and eliminating toxic free radicals building up on the inside. Mix the fine, tart dust in drinks to refine, protect, hydrate and purify the skin from within. Moon Juice, a women-founded culinary hivemind, has made it simple to care for skin as a whole.  Set yourself up for success with this incredible gift for your skin!
