Berries are a great source of antioxidants. Antioxidants can be your skin’s best friend for many reasons. They provide skin-firming properties and reduce scars after blemishes. Berries such as raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries also increase blood flow to the skin which encourages the production of new cells.

Lemon, cucumber, mint
