Breaking a few berries down and adding them to skin care will leave your skin protected and glowing.  The vitamin C content will help to dissolve dead skin cells and strengthen blood vessels.  The vitamin A content in the berries help to increase collagen production and stimulate cell production, which is important when the dead skin cells flake off and new, fresh cells form.

In a small bowl, smash with a fork:

  • small handful blueberries

Add:

  • 1/2 Tblsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup fine, granulated sugar

Mix well and apply to a clean face in a circular motion to help slough off dead skin cells.  The heat from your skin will melt the coconut oil as it is applied.

Rinse well, pat dry.
