Blueberries: Not just for eating! July 28 2015, 0 Comments
Blueberries are both a superfood and a wonderful beauty agent- and for good reason!
These small fruits are rich in fiber, as well as vitamin A and C, and a great source of antioxidants. Antioxidants can help neutralize free radicals which might otherwise damage your fragile skin cells, and leave your skin with a younger and softer look and feel. Antioxidant rich blueberries, improve your skin’s overall health by helping stop the accumulation of sebum- helping manage skin that is prone to acne.
Treatments using blueberry extract have been clinically proven to decrease the healing time- especially after skin peels- as well as reducing scarring in wound and burn treatments.
