Welcome to the third instalment of A-Z of Natural Wellness. Today I’m excited to share the amazing health and beauty benefits of Blueberries!

In case you were wondering why there were two A’s…I just couldn’t leave one out so you might be surprised to find more than one post going forward!

Blueberries are packed with vitamin C making this delicious berry the number one ingredient in most anti-ageing beauty treatments. Vitamin C prevents skin damage caused by toxins, sun damage and pollution. Vitamin C found in blueberries could also improve your skin’s collagen’s ability to smooth out those unwanted wrinkles and even out your skin’s texture.
