Let them help you shed the dull and the dead by seeking out skin care featuring these natural superstars. To assist you in getting your berry on, we put together this guide on berry easy way to include berries in your Repêchage regimen!
The Skin Benefits of Berries
The first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions berries is of course is that first sweet, juicy bite into a strawberry or blueberry grown to perfection. The second thing that should come to mind, especially to the super smart readers of the Beauty SEAcrets blog, is that berries hold wonderful benefits for the skin!
Strawberry – Often called “nature’s candy”, strawberries are known to be high in vitamins C, B6, K, fiber, folic acid, potassium, and amino acids. They are a perennial plant, the only fruit containing seeds on the outside, a great source of nitrate!
Blueberry – A sweet, tiny berry that packs a punch, blueberries are known to be nutritional powerhouses! They contain one of the highest natural antioxidant levels of any food, and are rich sources of vitamins C, K1, and manganese. Flavonoids, responsible for many of the unique qualities of the blueberry, are present in plentiful amounts too! This includes anthocyanins, quercetin and myricetin.
Beetroot – We include beet root in our professional Berryfina Facial, but don’t fret because it’s not a berry (psst… strawberries aren’t technically berries… mind blown?). Loaded with fiber, manganese, potassium, vitamins c and b9 (folate), beets are sweet for your palette and can help improve the appearance of your complexion. Beetroots contain inorganic nitrates, and a color so strong it is used to dye tomato paste a deeper red!
