The benefits of blueberries are plentiful for your skin and this post we’ll got over some of them. While James Christian Cosmetics specializes in helping people look their best on the outside, we also believe proper nutrition can greatly affect inner health and beauty. With our aesthetic services AND a healthy diet, our customers are some of the most gorgeous people in the world. So, how can you boost your beauty with what you consume? Start with blueberries!
Blueberries: Skin Superfood
Blueberries are not only yummy, but they are loaded with antioxidants. These compounds, called anthocyanins, shield the skin against harmful free radicals. Those free radicals damage the collagen that keeps your skin firm.
Just imagine those little blue berries as bullets killing off free radicals inside of your body and leaving behind a healthier, lovelier looking you.
In addition to decreasing collagen damage, the vitamin C in blueberries boost collagen production. The more collagen available in your skin, the firmer it is, keeping wrinkles and sagging skin at bay.
And this isn’t all that blueberries do for your skin. They also increase the circulation of blood in the skin. This helps your skin glow and keeps it that way every time you eat them.
Last but certainly not least, blueberries contain phytonutrients. These super nutrients help decrease the risk of skin cancer in some people. This doesn’t mean you can stop using your sunscreen. It simply aids in the fight against the damaging effects of the sun.
How to Add More Blueberries to Your Diet
Blueberries are so versatile. You can add them as a topping to:
- Frozen Yogurt
- Ice Cream
- Smoothie Bowls
You can also make smoothies with them. Combine frozen blueberries, bananas, plain yogurt and some almond milk for a healthy, superfood drink. Blueberries can also be added to water, lemonade, or iced tea.
You can just eat them by themselves, of course. They make a great low-calorie snack any time of the day (try them frozen – yum!).
