Açai berries are high in antioxidants and believed to assist in keeping the skin looking fresh and young by fighting the signs of aging. Açai is today a common ingredient that is present in skin care products that are available on the market to help your skin feel and look great.
Açai fights free radicals
Very high in vitamin C, açai is therefore very potent in antioxidant properties which work in fighting the free radicals that age and damage the skin. It is in this way that açai helps in maintaining radiant and young-looking skin.
Studies have found that açai by far contains the highest oxygen radical scavenging activity for any food that has been measured to date, thereby strongly supporting the antioxidant properties of these berries.
Because of their high antioxidant content, açai berries also have anti-inflammatory properties which makes it a natural ingredient for the treatment of acne. Scientists also believe that açai may assist in easing the pain that results from damaged nerve fibers.
Açai might treat hyper pigmentation
Açai has further been found to be one of the most beneficial natural ingredients for treating hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is a common, although harmless condition in which patches of the skin become darker in color than the rest of the surrounding skin.
This darkening is as a result of excess melanin which forms deposits on the skin. Melanin is the brown pigment that produces the normal color of the skin. Research is still ongoing to determine whether this ingredient is also beneficial in the management and prevention of skin disease.
