Acerola – Packing A Cherryfull Punch

August 15, 2010

Everybody knows that cosmetics don’t just make you look good, they also make you feel great and nothing says passion, vitality and abundance quite like  the colour red with its bold “look-at-me” confidence and its warm and juicy personality.  So when you are looking for a cosmetic range that makes you feel as good as you are going to look, it pays to see life as a bowl of fresh red cherries!

Prepare to get your juice on as you indulge your senses in cherry power!

Cherry Skin Care. Tasty, Sweet and a little bit Special

In the world of cherries the Acerola reigns supreme thanks to a vitamin C content some thirty-two times higher than orange juice and another 15 skin-friendly antioxidants to nurture your skin back to health. So, if you are looking for some anti-ageing inspiration why not take a seat and prepare for some face food loving.

Vitamin C is the key ‘active’ within the Acerola and the fact that it is present in a mega-concentrated dose is great news for anti-ageing fans. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which means that it can mop up free radicals and boost the skins healing capacity – it also boosts collagen production which is why it is a must-add ingredient in any cosmaceutical cream or serum.   The only down side with this vitamin is the fact that it is very sensitive to heat, light and air, breaking down very quickly to less potent dehydroascorbic acid which has a far lower bio-activity – the formulator has to work smart to maintain efficacy.

In addition to the vitamin C boost the Acerola also contains a hefty dose of polyphenols which also help to clean up free radicals and we must not forget the Vitamin E – great for skin repair plus the trace minerals which help to re-mineralise tired skin.

So where can you get your hands on some cherry loving cosmetics?

If you are looking for something ready-to-wear you can try either DHC corp of Japan , Tarte Cosmetics  or Helena Rubenstein.  If you are looking to have a little play with this ingredient yourself,  head to New Directions and give their herbal extract a try!
