It is true that I have taken a bit of a hiatus from blog writing, but I am officially back! For those who don’t know, my hiatus was a far cry restful, it has been an exciting journey of ups and downs, highs and lows; an adventure that only another start up entrepreneur would truly understand. But, like most entrepreneurs, I would not trade this experience and amazing journey for anything in the world!
My time over the past 2 years has been spent heavily researching the benefits of antioxidants from the inside out, and outside in, and in particular how antioxidants benefit the skin! Mother Nature has been kind enough to produce so many power packed anti-oxidants to help us stay healthy, youthful, and vibrant. While my heart will always be with the blueberry as an antioxidant powerhouse, there are a few other antioxidants that are noteworthy and worth knowing about.
Acai is an antioxidant that is well known as a powerful antioxidant food source, but did you know it has skin care benefits as well?
Acai has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits. It also has the ability to slow, or even reverse signs of aging that are related to oxidative processes!
It also has a variety of omega fatty acids. Fatty acids keep skin cells moist and strong, helping to fight off wrinkles and dry, dull skin. This means that Acai in skin care can help skin appear more youthful and supple! Acai is a good source of a variety of vitamins too, like Vitamin B, C, and E!
One of the coolest things about Acai when thinking about it in skin care is that when the oil is processed and stored long-term, the antioxidant levels remain high as opposed to other antioxidants that slowly loose antioxidant power over time. I love this fun fact about acai in anti-aging skin care!
Are you taking advantage of all Mother Nature’s little gifts? Don’t forget your anti-oxidants; inside and out!
