Blackberries and apples have emollient properties making them ideal for dry or dehydrated skin that is in need of replenishment, hydration and moisturisation. They are cleansing and detoxifying and help to clarify and rejuvenate skin.
They can also be used on oily or blemish prone skin due to their anti-inflammatory and astringent properties, they help to reduce redness, swelling and treat acne and dark spots.
Blackberries and apples are rich in antioxidants including Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin K which help combat the harmful effects of the environment and UV rays on skin and hair and therefore reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These vitamins aid in the skin's cell renewal process and inhibit the formation of an enzyme that breaks down elastin and collagen in the skin. This leads to brighter, refined and revitalised skin as well as giving skin a firm and taut appearance.
Vitamin C within blackberries and apples also helps to strengthen hair, protect it against harmful environmental factors and promote collagen production which encourages the growth of healthy hair.
