Beauty Food: Strawberries

Everyone’s favorite red berry is now the hottest skincare ingredient. Strawberries are more than a tasty snack-time treat because their beauty benefits are just as sweet as their taste! The benefits of strawberries make a long list, including hydrating, brightening, exfoliating, and protecting your skin. While oranges are typically the go-to for vitamin C, an antioxidant great for protecting your skin against environmental stressors, strawberries deliver greater amounts of vitamin C, folate, and potassium. Including strawberries in your regular diet is a fantastic health boost, and now, you can give the same boost to your beauty routine.       

Strawberries have become so popular in skincare products, there is a strawberry product for almost every step of your routine. If your routine is needing a little extra pink, consider these berry-based products.

Finally, strawberry and black currant extracts brighten the skin and work to remove impurities. This strawberry cleanser is the perfect way to kickstart your routine.
