imagesCA17TNPNYum! Summer raspberries are here! This delicious, juicy little fruit has amazing benefits for your skin.

With twice the antioxidant capacity of a strawberry, and three times more than a kiwi, the raspberry is a tremendous tool in your beauty arsenal. The anti-oxidants packed into each raspberry neutralize enzymes that destroy connective tissue in the skin. Additionally, anti-oxidants repair proteins in blood-vessel walls, preventing future inflammation.

Raspberries are also an excellent source of vitamin C – which is great for the absorption of nutrients into your skin.

There are so many ways to include raspberries in your diet – like mixing them in a smoothie or adding them to a baked muffin.

Raspberry_LemonadeA fun, easy, and summery way to add this delightful fruit to your day is with a Raspberry Lemonade.

Enjoy and make a toast to your healthy summer skin!
