Blueberries are tiny packets of joy. They add instant deliciousness to yogurt and ice cream and they’re freaking fantastic on top of cakes. But, while blueberries are widely known for their nutrients and doctors regularly extol their health benefits, it’s rare that anyone discusses blueberries’ hidden secret: they’re phenomenal for your skin. Here’s why:
Blueberries fight acne
Blueberries can magically normalize oil levels in your skin. While this powerful fruit won’t counteract hormones that can be another cause for acne, they can make your skin less likely to produce excess sebum.
The skin on your face is so thin that any sort of stress to the capillaries beneath it can cause splotches. However, the vitamin C in blueberries has the ability to fortify blood vessels beneath your skin, helping your face look smoother.
Makes skin look younger
Antioxidants and phytochemicals neutralize free radicals. This is important because our diet and our environment can actually speed up the aging process; blueberries, however, can help counteract this damage and leave your skin looking healthier and younger.
Fiber and the skin
Ok, so eating more fiber will make you have regular bowel movements. How does that help your skin? A healthier body that’s processing nutrients properly will be able to better care for your skin, leaving you looking healthier and with a natural glow.
