Our July blueberry facial combines blueberries with pureed grapes, lemon juice, honey and aloe vera. Why? Because all of these delicious ingredients are helpful to your skin. Blueberries contain antioxidants that prevent premature aging and wrinkles, grapes are skin brightening, lemon lightens dark spots, honey kills bacteria and aloe calms skin. Wow! And all you do is relax and enjoy being pampered.
Blueberries aren’t blue by accident; instead it is caused is a compound called anthocyanin that contributes its deep signature blue. Anthocyanin is a powerful antioxidant – molecules that stop oxidation of other molecules.
I don’t want to get all “science-y” with you, but when oxidation takes place (as it does with increasing frequency as we age) a molecule loses electrons, which results in free radicals being produced. These bad boys can damage or even destroy cells.
Anyway, antioxidants protect your skin against free radicals. It is very simple. Blueberry antioxidants are beneficial when you eat them … they also work when they are rubbed on your skin. So, blueberries do more than just taste delicious — they make your skin look delicious!
On top of that (as if it wouldn’t be enough) blueberries also contain vitamin C and salicylic acid. Vitamin C is another powerful antioxidant and salicylic acid is widely used in acne treatments as it removes dead cells, opens pores, and inhibits bacteria. So if you tend to have blackheads or breakouts, this facial will help with those.
