Skin smoothing/antioxidant. Per http://theskincarepharmd.com/thelatest/-skin-care-benefits-purslane, "Purslane has strong regenerative effects on a cellular level and is rich in antioxidants as well as omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, purslane contains more omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid in particular) than any other leafy vegetable plant. Additionally, a publication in BioMed Research International shares how purslane also contains high levels of vitamins E, C, and beta carotene. All 3 of these ingredients are powerful antioxidants that can help to brighten your complexion and even prevent future signs of aging by reducing UV-induced damage."
