This small, purplish berry packs a serious punch when it comes to health and beauty. Due to its high levels of vitamin C, the acai berry is loaded with antioxidants that work to fight free radicals – those nasties that damage and age the skin. As such, it is used in organic skin care to help maintain that youthful, radiant skin we all know and love.
Thanks to its antioxidant properties, acai berries have a natural anti-inflammatory effect, which is excellent for treating acne, swelling, and even the pain caused by damaged nerve fibres. It is also one of the most natural ways to treat hyperpigmentation, a harmless condition whereby skin becomes patchy. Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanin – the pigment that produces your normal skin colour – forms deposits in the skin, and skincare products containing acai work to tone down the darkness.
Natural skincare benefits aside, eating acai berries will do wonders for your health. An exotic sister of the blueberry and cranberry, this antioxidant-rich fruit is a superfood for a reason: it's healing, immune-stimulating, and energy-boosting. Mix the fresh or powdered version in your smoothies and porridges for a health hit.
