Blueberries, strawberries, blackberries or raspberries… red berries can do a lot for our skin by protecting it from oxidative damage.

These are the benefits of berries for your skin

In particular, because of their high antioxidant content, berries are widely used in anti-ageing cosmetics to treat all types of blemishes, not just age spots.

Red fruits are a great ally for our skin thanks to the power of their antioxidants and their large amount of vitamin C, but also other vitamins such as B and E in the case of strawberries and blackberries: “If we have problems with acne, eczema or blackheads, both blackberries and strawberries will help us to fight them, the latter are very antioxidant. What is usually used in cosmetics is their extract and seed oil for a younger skin with much more luminosity and brightness” – explains Esperanza Sáenz, from the firm Nezeni Cosmetics.

Elena García Garrido, CEO of the company Goji Mediterránea points out: “These carotenoids are very present in both cherries and Goji berries, we are talking about a fat-soluble nutrient that is involved in vitamin A synthesis. The oil has a high concentration of linoleic acid (essential fatty acid) which smoothes wrinkles, improves elasticity and evens tone. It also stimulates blood circulation, increases skin metabolism and reduces melanin deposits such as freckles and age spots”.

Anti-ageing benefits of berries

Strawberries – Due to their anti-inflammatory properties, they are good for combating dark circles under the eyes, puffiness and puffiness in the periocular area, which will make us look younger. Cherries – Moisturisers and cellular antioxidants, they promote skin firmness and elasticity, as well as healing. They are rich in vitamins A, B1, B2 and B3. Raspberries – Their main active ingredient is ellagic acid, a polyphenol that unifies skin tone and restores lost luminosity. Blueberries – They are anti-inflammatory and therefore recommended for treating skin conditions.

They also help in wound healing and stimulate collagen synthesis. Blackberries – Like cherries, they help to increase the skin’s elasticity, as well as the production of collagen, which is essential for slowing down ageing. Currants – Rich in minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, iron and calcium, red and black currants help to tone the skin.

An exceptional case: Goji berries

Goji berries are a superfood packed with antioxidants and vitamins that offer health and skin benefits. In Spain, they are an exotic fruit that we tend to see mainly in their dried version. Of Chinese origin, they are not only beneficial for eye health, their components are responsible for their great anti-aging power, reducing wrinkles and expression lines. They also promote skin hydration and juiciness.
