Beauty Benefits

The acerola cherry is a true “superfruit”. Not only does it help you keep yourself healthy internally, but it can also help you look healthy externally, too! This little cherry has a number of benefits to be had for skincare in particular, and it’s definitely a worthy addition to your diet if you’re looking for something that helps promote healthy skin.

Brighter Skin

We know that the acerola cherry has a very high vitamin C content. It’s one of the reasons that this little fruit is awesome for your health, in fact, as that vitamin C can help boost your immune system and keep you healthy. Did you know that it’s also great for your skin? The acerola cherry’s high concentration of vitamin C can help even out and brighten your skin, leading a radiant and glowing appearance.

Softer Skin

The acerola cherry helps your skin retain more moisture. This, in turn, helps you to keep your skin moisturized and soft. You might even find yourself using less moisturizer as your skin slowly rehydrates and fills with the moisture content it needs to look and feel its best.

Fewer Wrinkles

The acerola cherry can help increase the production of elastin and collagen. This means that your skin will appear plumper and your wrinkles and fine lines will appear much smaller. When coupled with the fruit’s ability to help promote moisture retention, your skin will feel and look younger.

 

As you can see, the acerola cherry is quite the superfruit! The next time you’re looking to add to your diet, consider trying this little berry and see just how much it can help your skin and your overall health.
