What It Does
Strawberries boost collagen production and encourage cell turnover. It also protects skin from sun damage, and evens skin tone.
Why It Works
Strawberries are rich in antioxidants, such as ellagic acid and anthocyanin. Ellagic acid inhibits enzymes that contribute to collagen breakdown, and reduces inflammation by inhibiting melanin production. Anthocyanin prevents UV damage by inactivating highly reactive molecules that damage cells. Strawberries are acidic, which allows them to remove excess oil in the skin.
