Blueberries and Skincare
Blueberries are famous for being a superfood. Eating them isn't the only way to reap the benefits.
Blueberries are the newest ingredient in the skin care market; and for good reason. Dr Kohli’s Blueberry Night Recovery Cream utilizes the nutrients of blueberries in a ph-optimized, paraben and mineral oil free moisturizing cream.
Known for being high in antioxidants, this superfood provides endless benefits when applied topically to the skin. It’s antioxidant properties fight premature aging. Antioxidants help fight cell damaging free radicals, which naturally increase as you age. Activities such as tanning, smoking, poor eating habits, and general UV light exposure can increase free radical production, which is why it is important to invest in products that help fight cell damaging free radicals.
In addition to it’s high antioxidant content, blueberries are high in a type of flavonoid called anthocyanin, which can support the process of collagen production. Collagen is a protein that gives your skin structure; it's what keeps your skin from sagging, and gives you that plump, youthful glow in your complexion. Naturally as we age, our collagen production decreases. Poor lifestyle habits that relate to diet, smoking and sun exposure speeds up this process; resulting in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and saggy skin. Blueberries not only contain properties that protect collagen from further damage, but promote an increase in collagen production. Incorporating blueberries into your skincare routine can prevent and even reverse the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and skin sagging.
This superfood can even be used as acne treatment. Blueberries are high in salicylates, which is a chemical found in many acne treatments. Altogether salicylates retain the ability to remove dead skin, fight bacteria, and prevent clogging pores. Incorporating blueberries into your skincare routine can prevent and fight against acne.
