Cranberries for the Skin

12 Dec Posted by in Blog, Skincare | Comments Off on Cranberries for the Skin
Cranberries are known for their sweet yet tart taste when used for cooking and also for their ability to fight off urinary tract infections. They are also strongly associated with the holidays.   Recently research is now suggesting that cranberries are also valuable ingredients for skin and body care. 
Cranberries contain very high levels of antioxidants.  Antioxidants help to protect your skin against the effects of free radicals.  Free radicals can damage skin cells and speed up the skin’s aging process.  Cranberries are an excellent skin conditioner.  They moisturize the skin and help the skin to create a barrier to keep the moisture in.   Cranberries have the natural ability to ward off harmful bacteria.  One cause of acne is bacteria.  Cranberries are especially helpful for people with acne prone skin.  Cranberry oil is easily absorbed through the skin.  It helps to relieve dry, itchy skin.  The addition of cranberries to a facial can lead to improved results.  They will help the face fight acne, become more moisturized and appear more youthful.  A facial with cranberries is especially good for oily, congested skin but all skin types will glow after this wonderful treatment.
