Help your skin look radiant and refreshed this busy holiday season with the holiday season’s most popular berry: Cranberries! Cranberries are traditionally a Thanksgiving favorite! While their tart taste compliments the traditional turkey meal so nicely, they are used for a variety of other things as well. I personally like cranberries for baking and decorating with too! Let’s not forget Starbucks’ amazing Cranberry Bliss Bar. To die for!
While you are buying your stash of holiday cranberries, pick up a few more… your skin will love you for it! Not only are cranberries good for your internal health, they positively impact your skin as well!
3 Awesome Beauty Benefits of Cranberries:
- Cranberry juice helps detoxify the skin. It helps reduce skin inflammation, redness and itching, making it particularly helpful for those with acne or psoriasis. In addition cranberries help reduce skin inflammation, redness, and itchy, irritated skin.
- Cranberry oil helps fight free radicals. It is often used in anti-aging products! Easily absorbed into the skin, it makes a great mositurizer, improving skin elasticity and suppleness. It is also high in vitamin A and phospholipids
- Cranberries contain anti-bacterial properties. This makes them a good ingredient for facial cleansers, scrubs, toners oily and masks.
While you are using your cranberries for baking and decorating, apply a few mashed ones on your face for some great skin benefits (or just look for skin care products containing cranberries!).
