As a beauty editor, I've noticed kale-infused beauty products keep popping up left and right. Kale, which boasts hearty doses of vitamins A, C and K, is high in antioxidants and is good for your body in more ways than one. Vitamin A, or retinol, boasts skin differentiation and regrowth, while vitamin C is important in the production of collagen and skin firmness. Lastly, kale is loaded with vitamin K, which is great for reducing under-eye dark circles. With benefits like that, it's hard to believe we haven't always been smearing kale all over our faces.
In case you want to start incorporating kale into something other than your salad bowl, we found three kale-infused products to help get you started.

So the next time you find yourself thinking kale is nothing more than a trendy veggie, think again. This is one powerful green that's really as super as it sounds.
