This recipe is great to use up hot cross buns after the Easter weekend, but the blueberries can also be great for your skin.
So how do they help?
A diet containing food high in antioxidants is one of the simplest, most natural things you can do when it comes to enhancing your health and beauty.
Anthocyanin’s, members of the phytochemical group known as bioflavonoids, give blueberries their characteristic pigmentation. More importantly, these colouring agents possess powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that promote overall health. If you’re concerned about blotchy, dull or sun-damaged skin, eating blueberries and other anthocyanin-rich plant foods on a regular basis could help clear up problem areas and leave your skin looking clearer, firmer and younger looking.
