Everyone knows that delicious Raspberries and Strawberries are a tasty, healthy choice for any balanced diet. But these antioxidant-packed juicy fruits are also spectacular for your skin. That’s why we use both fruit extracts in our ROSE BERRY™ Rose Water + Berries Mask and PURE BLISS™ White Tea + Berries Mask. Both masks use the full fruit, including the seeds of Strawberries for natural and gentle exfoliation of skin cells.
Raspberries and Strawberries are loaded with powerful antioxidant compounds called phenolics, which help berries withstand environmental stressors in the wild. These same protective elements do the same for your skin, shielding it from free radicals, UV rays, toxins, and external pollutants. In addition, both berries are vascular constrictors, meaning they help decrease redness for those with sensitive skin. They’re also amped with Vitamin C to promote production of collagen fibers that keep your skin smooth, hydrated, and supple. What’s more, Raspberries can help protect your skin from the sun and skin cancer, thanks to their abundance of antioxidants and vitamins.
Raspberries and Strawberries are naturally abundant sources of Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and essential fatty acids, which mirror expensive skincare additives for nourishing and protecting the skin. The linoleic fatty acids in the fruit keep skin hydrated while protecting it from free radicals. Vitamin A boosts collagen to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, while firming and toning skin. Vitamin E helps the skin appear plumper, more supple, and youthful. As such, berries are essential ingredients to look for in organic skincare products to enjoy these benefits versus shelling out big bucks for less natural additives that attempt to do the same for cheaper costs to the supplier.
Finally, Raspberries and Strawberries have strong anti-inflammatory properties to aid us with sensitive skin and eczema, aiding dryness, redness, and itchiness, while hydrating and soothing the skin.
BENEFITS OF STRAWBERRY SEEDS
With their high levels of natural acids, Strawberry seeds clean and tighten your pores, gently removing grime, excess oils, and blackheads. They also rejuvenate your skin and reduce discoloration and swelling around the eyes. Most especially, Strawberry seeds are effective for exfoliating the skin like no other organic ingredient, gently clearing dead and dull skin cells without leading to redness or irritation that cheaper artificial exfoliators can cause.
