Blueberries are a superfood. They contain antioxidants to help protect the body and skin from free radical damage, they help to combat disease, they boost your immunity, and they taste delicious!
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
- 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.
