Blueberries aren’t just for breakfast or your favorite muffin recipe. They are amazing little protection powerhouses for the skin, chalk full of antioxidants like bioflavanoids and resveratrol.
This delicious blue fruit was ranked number one in antioxidant activity by the U.S. Department of Agriculture compared to 40 common fruits and vegetables. The antioxidants in blueberries protect you from premature aging, hyperpigmentation and other skin imbalances.
While blueberries will provide your body with these antioxidants when you eat them regularly, you can also use the fruit topically to directly benefit your skin. For example, blueberries are vaso constrictors, which means that they aid in the reduction of redness. This makes them a wonderful ingredient for sensitive skin, acne and rosacea. In addition, blueberries help to balance acneic and oily skin conditions.
This amazing ingredient is the star of our Organic Blueberry Detox Peel at the skincare studio – if you haven’t tried this treatment yet – you are missing out!
