We don’t know about you, but we looove a good Acai bowl! It’s the perfect summer treat, super refreshing and absolutely delicious - but did you know that Acai Berries are also super good for your skin?
That’s right! Packed full of antioxidants, Acai Berries have plenty of skincare benefits, making them one of our favourite superfoods for glowing skin! Full of Vitamins A and C, and with anti-ageing benefits - these tiny superfood berries are full of magic. Here are their top benefits for the skin!
Why Antioxidants Are Great For Your SkinYour skin is a battlefield, on which your cells are constantly fighting for you against environmental aggressors like pollution, toxins, radiation, stress, and bacteria. That’s right, you’re a proper warrior! But if your skin protective barrier is weak, your body produces free radical cells that can wreak havoc on your skin. That’s where antioxidants come in, helping to neutralise free radicals and restore your body to a healthy balance.
Boasting over 16 phytonutrients and antioxidants, Acai Berries contain ten times as many antioxidants as grapes and twice as many antioxidants as blueberries! If that wasn’t enough, Acai Berries also boast a powerful dose of Vitamin A - great for anti-ageing and to boost cell turnover. These mighty berries also contain brightening Vitamin C to rev up collagen production and give you that firm, glowing complexion.
How To Use Acai Berry In Your SkincareThe many Acai benefits are what make these small but mighty berries one of the superstar ingredients in our Superfood-infused skincare range. Here are a few of our favourite products to get you started:
