BENEFITS of STRAWBERRIES for SKIN

BENEFITS of ANTIOXIDANTS: Antioxidants are chemical compounds or substances that inhibit oxidation. They are the body's friend. They seek out, neutralize and destroy free radicals that cause havoc on the body. Free radicals speed up the aging process by breaking down collagen and reducing oxygen levels in cells. When free radicals overcome antioxidants, aged or poor skin conditions may develop such as wrinkling, pre-cancerous or cancerous lesions.

ANTIOXIDANT FRUITS: strawberries, apples, oranges, plums, red grapes, blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, mangos, pears, bilberries, cantaloupe and more. Antioxidant fruits improve skin condition and boost the immune system.

BENEFITS of VITAMIN C: Strawberries have an especially high content of vitamin C. Vitamin C has anti-aging properties. Reduce appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes. Improve skin elasticity and regenerate new skin cells.

SALICYLIC ACID: Strawberries contain salicylic acid, a natural and gentle exfoliant for skin. Eliminate build-up of dead skin cells. Lighten skin, reduce dark under eye circles, attack damaging free radicals. Fight acne and pimples. Fade acne scars and blemishes. Improve overall complexion.

ALPHA HYDROXY ACIDS: Destroy free radicals. Lighten and fade age spots, acne scars and blemishes.

ELLAGIC ACID: Protect against the sun's ultraviolet rays. Reduce the appearance of slight hyperpigmentation. Heal damaged skin. Promote youthful appearance. Prevent hair fall or thinning hair with vitamin B5, B6 and ellagic acid.

NATURAL ASTRINGENT: Strawberries are a natural astringent and anti-inflammatory. Reduce under eye puffiness.

ACNE RELIEF: Strawberries help to reduce acne break-outs. Vitamin C, Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Salicylic Acid help clear acne and reduce oil from skin.

FOLATE: Regenerate and produce new skin cells.

SKIN CARE TIP: You can find homemade face masks recipes using strawberries, online, but use with caution. The salicylic acid in strawberries may be too drying and harsh for sensitive skin. Never apply a face mask to skin before trying a small spot test first. Check to see if skin reacts. Rinse with cool water and discontinue immediately if skin reacts poorly with redness, inflammation, itching, burning or other irritation. Contact your medical provider, if needed.
