Berry season is upon us and so I want to take a moment to highlight why you should eat berries for beautiful skin.
Berries are essentially super foods; this is not just because they taste ‘super’ but also because they are packed with nutrients that have an amazing effect on your bodies health.
The berry family consist of blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cranberries, elderberries and gooseberries. That said the avocado, tomato, watermelon and olive are all types of berries too so we’ll include them in here for beautiful skin purposes.
Berries are power packed with nutritional goodness such as vitamins, minerals, flavanoids, antioxidents and lutein.
Berries contain a huge amount of vitamin C which helps to prevent the formation of wrinkles. They also contain fibre which helps your body deliver nutrients and eliminate toxins helping to boost your skins health. They are also excellent for helping to reduce inflammation.
Eating these foods the way that nature intended really helps to boost your bodies health and improves circulation.
Eat berries in season as much as possible; try to buy organic or go one step further and pick your own. The only other tip I need to give you is to stay well protected from the sun and ensure you apply a strong SPF!
What are you waiting for?
Go get some berries and get munching…
