Blueberry - Dr Botanicals


More than just a delicious snack, blueberries are tiny powerhouses of vitamins, essential fatty acids and antioxidants. The benefits that blueberries provide to the body when included in one’s diet are many and widely known. But the fruit’s benefits to the skin’s overall health are often overlooked.

How do blueberries go into skincare?

In order to get the full effects of the superfood, most formulations will use Blueberry Seed Oil. Blueberry Seed Oil is produced when the seeds of blueberries are cold-pressed. This nutrient-dense oil is packed full of antioxidants and has a composition that makes it great for all skin types. It absorbs into skin quickly without leaving skin feeling heavy or greasy and isn’t likely to clog pores.

What can blueberries do for my skin?

Blueberries are amazing for protecting and healing the skin. They are a heart-health food and are believed to help deliver oxygen, collagen, and nutrients through the body and skin.

Blueberries draw their dark blue colour from anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants that work to provide a number of benefits. These antioxidants help to neutralise free radicals from pollution, stress, or sun damage. That destroy the skin’s connective tissue and prevent the further deepening of fine lines and wrinkles. They can also aid in improving skin quality, signs of ageing, and collagen longevity.

Quick refresher: Free radicals are little troublemakers that wreak havoc on your skin. They can cause hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles (AKA: signs of premature ageing).

In addition to its powerful antioxidant properties, blueberry seed oil is also high in omega-3 and omega-6. Together, these fatty acids are known as Vitamin F, they help to moisturise the skin. Regulate transepidermal water loss, leaving your skin soft and hydrated.

Overall, when properly formulated, skincare products containing blueberry seed oil can do wonders for your skin. The omega-3 and omega 6 fatty acids help to moisturise the skin and slow transepidermal water loss. The powerful antioxidant properties help to neutralise free-radical damage caused by UVA, UVB and even blue light exposure. Together, all of these properties help to fight signs of ageing.
