Berry Beautiful

A holiday skincare routine that’ll leave you with the scent of the season
By Audrey Ashe

Move over pumpkin, there’s a new fruit in town! (Did you know that pumpkins are a fruit? It’s true. But this article is not about pumpkins.)

Coming down from the giddiness of pumpkin spice and apple cider doesn’t mean the seasonal food bender has to end. We know fresh fruits and vegetables have great health and beauty benefits, but it doesn’t have to stop in the kitchen. One particular fruit, the lowly cranberry, is a gem hidden in plain sight. Cranberries have long been touted for their health benefits both inside and out. The fruit of evergreen dwarf shrubs which are native to North America, cranberries bear antioxidants and other properties that help keep your skin looking and feeling radiant, smooth, and youthful.

Cranberries offer the perfect trifecta of antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, along with enzymes that act as an exfoliant, which can tackle the dry outermost layer of skin and leave it silky smooth. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find that they have many anti-aging properties as well. Rich in antioxidants essential for protecting skin against damaging environmental stressors and free radicals, the cranberry also has a high amount of vitamins A and C, which help stimulate collagen production.
