Blueberries are known for their antioxidant power. They go head to head with all those free radicals in your body just waiting to do some damage. It seems to me to make perfect sense that these guys would do quite a bit of good if applied directly to your face and they do. The reason why is because blueberries are filled with vitamin C and E (the famously hardworking antioxidants). Blueberries can also be seen popping up on spa menus as fancy and pricey treatments but according to New Age Journal you can make this treatment yourself at home for super cheap. If you?re looking to get rid of dead skin just add about a tsp of sugar to the ingredients for extra exfoliation qualities. The masque below is awesome for adding hydration to the skin leaving you with soft, young skin tone.
