What is Acai?

The acai berries are a popular superfood often found in smoothies and other healthy recipes, however they provide more skin benefits due to the high levels of antioxidants, such as vitamin C, fatty acids and anti-inflammatory properties to name a few. Enriched in vitamin C you will find that dark spots and sun damage are reduced and provide further protection to exposure to harmful UV rays. You will also find that acai is able to boost the collagen production of the skin making fine lines and wrinkles less visible and give the skin a more youthful and plump appearance.

Containing ten times the amount of antioxidants then blueberries, acai berries can shield the skin from further free radical damage, such as pollution, central heating and other environmental aggressors. Those of you with blemish-prone skin will also find the anti-inflammatory benefits will reduce the size and redness of any active spots and blemishes helping them to heal more quickly.
