It’s time for Wellness Wednesday ! Blueberries !
Blueberries are high in antioxidants, fiber, and nutrients. Together, these may support your skin’s ability to fight inflammation related to acne, psoriasis, eczema, and premature aging.
Nurture Glowing Skin
Blueberries are jam-packed with vitamins and antioxidants, making them an incredible natural skin treatment. To make a nourishing blueberry face mask at home, mix 1/2 cup of crushed blueberries with 1 cup plain yogurt. Apply for 20 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.
Promote Hair Growth
