How To Make A Blackberry Antioxidant Infusion For Glowing Skin

As I approach 49 this December, I am amused to find I still get complimented on my skin. I don't have a big skincare regime nor do I wear much makeup, so my glowing complexion is owed to a wholefoods-based, healthy diet and my hydration habits. Today I am going to share one of my secret recipes. and one that I think has really helped give me that youthful glow.

Firstly, if you want beautiful, clear skin, water has to take over as your new BBF. You'll need to consume up to 3 or more every day to keep your body fully hydrated and reap the skin-glowing benefits. Water helps to flush out toxins from the body's organs--and the skin is our largest one! It keeps your dermis and the outer layers nice and plump and dewy looking giving off that youthful appearance we're all striving for as we age.

The health benefits of blackberries are really worth taking notice of when it comes to creating naturally glowing skin from the inside out. Just one cup of raw blackberries contains over 30 milligrams of essential vitamin C which is an essential partner in the body's ability to produce its own collagen.

Collagen is found in your bones, connective tissue, and blood vessels, and the dermis levels of the skin giving it a smooth appearance. As we age, the natural process becomes less efficient and we lose the elasticity seen in younger skin. The means wrinkle, imperfections and scar become more prominent adding to the an aged appearance.

Like vitamin C, manganese is another friend in the formation of collagen and fight against ageing. One cup of raw blackberries contains 0.9 milligrams of manganese, almost half the daily recommended value and can further support anti-ageing. Blackberries are also comprised of 85% water which aids your overall hydration levels and increases the plumpness of skin preventing it from drying out.

If you are drinking 3 litres of water per day, its time to start. However there are a few rules to follow to create this daily habits. First, always sip, never chug water. Too much all at once can be very damaging on the stomach and overload your kidney and liver. Sip often throughout the day but in small doses. This goes for infused water tonics as well. It is far better to sip on a consistent drip all day than binge in one sitting.

Blackberry Antioxidant Infusion

  • 1/2 cup blackberries, fresh and organic

  • 1/2 cup of crushed ice

  • 1 sprig of thyme or basil

  • 1/2 lemon, juice only

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)

  • 1 litre of water, filtered is best

In a large pitcher or your water bottle, add the ice and water. Squeeze the lemon juice and add to the water. Crush the berries leaving a few untouched as decoration. Add the crushed berries and stir well into the water/ice mix. Let sit in the fridge for 10 minutes before consuming, Add remaining berries for garnish.

Healthy + happiness,

This sounds super refreshing Emma, I'm going to try it. Can you use mineral water or is that not good for you? Lily
