We all know berries make a tasty, not to mention healthy, snack. But there’s more to the humble berry than meets the eye. From Peru to Poland, from South Africa to Spain, and of course not forgetting the UK, berries are grown in every corner of the world and come together to shape our food, beauty regime and lifestyle. Let’s take a look at what makes berries so great.
Firstly, they smell great. Let’s be honest smell is important when choosing a face mask. But it’s not everything, and berries need to bring something more to the beauty bar than just a gorgeous smell.
Strawberries contain hydroxy acids, which brighten the skin and are a fantastic exfoliator. Blueberries harness the power or anthocyanin, a powerful antioxidant, vitamins A, B complex, C and E, potassium, zinc, copper, iron and magnesium to prevent fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone and balance the oil levels in your skin. Is there nothing these super berries can’t do?
Mud within face masks acts as an emulsifier penetrating skin pore deep to absorb excess sebum and other impurities deep within pores. When you wash the mud mask off, you also wash away the dirt, grime, oil and dead skin. Mud also contains huge numbers of minerals which nourish your skin, leaving your face feeling fresh, clean and vibrant.
The perfect quick mess-free beauty boost. Infused with serum to instantly revitalise and revive skin. Alternatively indulge with the fabric masks infused with botanical clays for a unique beauty experience
Peel Off Masks
Peel Off masks are gentler and more effective than scrubs whilst leaving skin incredibly purified and smooth. You’ll be amazed at how many dead skin cells show up on the mask after use!
Berries are famous for being a bit of a super fruit. From reducing cholesterol to helping prevent diabetes and cancer, not to mention the fact they are a fantastic source of immunity-boosting vitamin C, when it comes to health benefits, the claims are vast and varied. What’s interesting is that the same nutrients which make you glow on the inside, also help you shine on the outside. Plus, they smell fantastic.
Ellagic acid, a bit of a heroic antioxidant if you ask us, protects your skin from sun damage and helps prevent the breakdown of elastin and collagen in your skin; leaving your skin feeling firmer. Essential fatty acids improve the skins hydration and smoothness, just what we need. And Vitamin C protects your skin from nasty free radicals and helps increase elastin levels. Perfect.
