Since kale became a staple in our morning smoothies and favorite salads, it didn't take long for us to notice that the vegetable reaped benefits for our health and our skin. Infused with antioxidants and iron, among numerous other nutrients, the leafy green reduces inflammation, treats sun damage, and promotes elasticity in the hair. No surprise here—kale is now making its way to the beauty aisle with topical treatments that reap similar benefits and more.

Kale is loaded with Vitamins A, C and K, lutein, iron, and antioxidants. The vitamin K in kale helps to reduce the dark circles under your eyes and 'tightens' your skin, thereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps to reduce the swelling and scars that may form after medical procedures. Lutein, a carotenoid, also promotes collagen production, which is essential for your skin's strength and 'full' appearance. Both vitamin A and antioxidants repair skin tissue while also preventing free-radical damage. Kale beauty products are also known to be beneficial for detoxification. These products help to keep your skin hydrated while cleaning out your pores and providing your skin with a healthier look.

Kale has both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which keep the hair and scalp moisturized. The fatty acids also reduce dandruff and alleviate a flaky scalp and may even speed up hair growth. Blend together four washed kale leaves, a lemon, and a teaspoon of olive oil into a thick paste. Massage into the scalp, let it sit for 20 minutes, and then rinse.

Since hair and nails are both made out of keratin, it's no wonder that the veggie has made its merry way to the nail too. Boasting high levels of vitamins A, C and K, kale stimulates keratin production and results in longer, stronger, and better-hydrated nails.
