Mediterranean diet for the skin: If our culture was measured in the kitchen, the Mediterranean diet it deserves an encyclopedia in itself. A work of art among the diet, it is certainly one of the most complete and healthy. Merit also – and above all – of the fruit and vegetables always protagonists of the richness and culinary variety of Italy. Very important foods, because they are rich in water, life mines, fibre, minerals and nutrients able to help the body keep fit and healthy. The recommended dose? According to experts 4-5-servings per day, within a varied, healthy and balanced diet. And if fruits and vegetables are synonymous with well-being for our body, why should they not be for our skin too?
L’Erbolario starts from his Botanical Garden (in Lodi, of course, in the vast plot of land surrounding the production site and workshop, surrounded by the greenery of the Adda Sud Park) to create its new line skincare, as simple as it is avant-garde.
