Strawberries are a delicious superfood packed with health promoting bio-actives including vitamins, minerals, phenolic acids and flavonoids, especially anthocyanin, a phytochemical responsible for the red color of the berries.
Strawberries in Skin Care
With an acidic pH ranging between 5 and 6, strawberries, naturally promote a healthy acid mantle, the ideal skin surface pH in well balanced skin, which should be between 4.5 and 6.3.
Strawberries have one of the highest concentrations of VITAMIN C. Some people even go as far as calling Vitamin C the holy grail of preventing premature wrinkles. All in all, vitamin C is pretty awesome in age preventative skin care, and most definitely recommended.
The phenolic acids in strawberries promote smoother skin texture and help enhance your complexion.
Strawberries are a powerhouse ingredient that help soothe skin irritation, and combat inflammation. Studies suggest that the abundance of antioxidants deem the berry to have anti-carcinogenic benefits.
Antioxidants are a key to neutralizing cell damaging free radicals, which are responsible for many diseases and premature aging. They are essential for skin and over all well-being.
