The Power of Cranberries
I'm usually telling people not to put on their faces, and I'm not talking about the cranberry dish that usually gets over-looked at the Thanksgiving feast.
Did you know cranberries contain the highest concentrates of antioxidants of any fruit or vegetable? So today, I am giving you a free pass, just kidding, don't put that on your face. Cranberries are also an excellent source of Vitamins C and essential fatty acids.
Cranberries are often used in skincare products to treat dryness, boost radiance, and improve your skin's overall health.
Here are some beauty benefits of cranberries:
1) Minimize the Appearance of Acne
Cranberries are also a natural source of salicylic acid, an astringent, and antiseptic that reduces sebum, clear pores, and reduces pimples' appearance. These super berries also contain a trace of anti-inflammatory properties and Vitamin C, which helps adult acne and acne scarring.
2) Deeply Moisturizing
Cranberries are the only berry with the perfect amount of essential fatty acids. This amount of cranberry seed oil allows the oil to absorb entirely into your skin, allowing its antioxidants to penetrate and provide your skin with intense hydration. These fatty acids are essential to keep your skin's moisture barrier intact, locking in hydration.
3) Firms + Tighten
Cranberries' high antioxidant content works great for protecting your skin against environmental stressors. The vitamins in cranberries fight free radicals to minimize visible signs of aging as well as hyperpigmentation.
