Taking care of your skin is just as important as taking care of your body. Glowing, healthy skin is an essential part to being healthy. An easy way to ensure you will have that glow is to pick berries when choosing snacks. Not only are most berries packed with flavor and make any diet more enjoyable, but they are fantastic UV fighting foods.Blueberries contain high levels levels of anthocyanins – compounds that help prevent collagen breakdown and ensure that skin maintains healthy levels of a very powerful antioxidant, glutathione. Strawberries are high in an antioxidant called ellagic acid – it’s touted as having a photo-protective effect in the skin, reducing wrinkles and other aging effects caused by UV radiation. Chase those berries down with ample water throughout the day and you will maintain that youthful glow all day long and for many years to come!
