Berries are delicious food. Most of us have savored the sweet, rich taste of their juice. I certainly have! However, did you know that being delicious is not all there’s to say about berries? They are also very nutritious, and what’s more? They are great for skincare! Berries as skincare agents is a function that’s not very much talked about. These super berries are not usually talked about, considering the multiple gains berries carry where skin health is concerned. Here are five benefits for the skin berries offer:

1. Berries keep your skin hydrated

All that juice in berries contains a decent proportion of water, helping your skin maintain sufficient turgor to retain its supple, healthy look. It also helps in preventing wrinkling of the skin. All these, in addition to berry juice, tasting much better than ordinary water!

2. Berries are great for preventing premature aging of the skin

Like that of other cells in our body, our skin cells are frequently under stress caused by free radicals. These free radicals, which are products of chemical reactions triggered by metabolism or sunlight, can have damaging effects on the cells. Skin cells are not spared either. Free radicals can have a debilitating impact on the skin and cause it to age prematurely. Enter berries with the antioxidant superpower! Berries contain a lot of antioxidants that help combat free radicals, giving your skin cells a significant boost against the stressor free radicals. With a reduction in the impact of free radicals, your skin is better protected against premature aging.

3. Berries help protect the skin against sun damage

Our skin proteins are made up of collagen and elastin, among other proteins. Collagen gives the skin its structural nature while elastin keeps our skins healthily elastic and firm. Sunlight can have damaging and degrading effects on these skin proteins causing an attendant reduction in skin texture and quality. Berries contain ellagic acid, which fights this damage, granting your skin a better chance out in the sun!

4. Berries give your skin a healthy glow

Berries are becoming popular components of beauty face masks designed to brighten the complexion and make the skin glow. Berries contain vitamins that are involved in keeping the skin smooth and glowing–in addition to other components that are also good for your skin and serve as exfoliants to help you get that clearer, smooth skin. You may want to look into introducing berry extract products into your skincare routine or even trying out your own berry beauty mask mix!

5. Berries are useful against acne

Acne is a common problem, especially among younger adults and teenagers. Here again, berries may prove very useful in the management of acne and some other skin conditions. Berries contain salicylates, which can help in exfoliation and opening of clogged pores that cause acne.

 

Conclusion

Berries have long been appreciated as a nutritious and delicious treat. However, its potential, especially in skincare, lies far above just being a healthy treat. Some of these skincare perks contained in this delightful treat are also in the form of a drink–making it easy and accessible for you to consume it anytime, any day. Guess there’s no excuse not to incorporate berries into our diet and skincare routines!

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
