You may have heard a million times how good cranberries are for your health. Or you may just be a fan of the popular Thanksgiving side dish and patiently waiting for the holiday to arrive so you can fill your plate up. Any way you flip it, cranberries are loaded with antioxidants that protect your cells, including skin, from damage. Incorporating cranberry into your skin care regimen can help protect your skin from environmental stressors while omega fatty acids keep it hydrated and plump.
The moisturizing and skin-protecting properties of cranberries can help heal skin conditions such as dryness, lack of radiance, and loss of elasticity. As explained by an expert from skin care brand MyChelle Dermaceuticals, “Cranberry seed oil is the only oil known for having a perfect ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. This means it absorbs easily into the skin (allowing the antioxidants to penetrated deep into the skin) while providing intense hydration.” With summer long gone, there isn’t a more perfect time than now to begin incorporating cranberry into your skin regimen.
