Most of us are very much familiar with blueberries and what they look like. They are usually known for their good taste and health benefits. And just as the strawberries, blueberries are also known as the skin remedies. As the monsoon season has started already, and you are looking for your skin protection using something natural, here is something you must consider.
Blueberries have a lot of anti-aging properties that make your skin feel taut. Moreover, these can also help with the problem of acne. If you are looking for a natural cleanser for your face on a daily basis, blueberries can be of great help.
How to use blueberries as your beauty regime
You can make a face mask using the berries, for toning and to eliminate any skin problems. To make the mask, you will have to crush the berries and mix three tablespoons of curd to make a thick paste. Make sure the paste is consistent as well. You can use a blender for this. Apply the paste on the face and massage in a circular motion. Do not forget the neck area, because fine lines are more apparent on the this area. Keep the paste on for at least 20 minutes, then you can wash it off with lukewarm water. Remember to pat dry.
The curd can be used to exfoliate the skin and remove the dead skin cells, while the blueberries can improve the circulation of blood and make your skin glow and flawless.
Also, if you have pimples on your face, the gentle massage of blueberry can give you much relief. Blueberries are believed to contain salicylate, which is a salt of salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is used for treating acne.
Alternatively, you can also mix blueberries with lemon juice — a few drops of lemon juice added to crushed berries — a little bit of honey to make a paste. Apply this paste gently on the face and neck area, and leave it on for 15 minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water and you will notice a fresh glow in your skin. This can be used by people who have excessively oily skin. You should use this paste once a week.
