Want a Glowing Complexion? Put These Fruits on Your Face
We all know that fruits keep our insides healthy and glowing, so it only makes sense that they’ll do the same for our skin, right? Fruits are nature’s most vibrant ingredients, but it turns out, putting them on your face will make your skin more vibrant too. It’s a win-win!
Confused on which ingredient is right for you? Not sure where to start? Here's our guide to figure out which fruit(s) you should be putting on your face!
Raspberry Seed Oil
This powerful little berry houses humble seeds with serious skincare benefits. Raspberry seed oil contains the highest alpha linolenic acid of any fruit seed oil giving it anti-inflammatory properties. So what does that even mean? Let’s break it down: Alpha linolenic acid is one of the fatty acids essential to our skin’s health, but that our bodies can’t produce on its own. That’s where raspberry seed oil comes in. This fruity oil allows you to apply this necessary acid topically, leaving behind healthy, glowing skin.
That’s not all, though. Raspberry seed oil also contains phytosterols and ellegic acid, which encourage new collagen production and reduce trans-epidermal water loss, which means your skin stays more plump. “I don’t want plump, bouncy skin,” said no one, ever.
Then there’s raspberry seed oil’s high vitamin E content, which prevents oxidative damage, encouraging your skin to look younger for longer.

Goji Berry Extract
Did you just picture a smoothie bowl? Us too! But there’s more to goji berries than just accessorizing your acai bowl creations. These berries have been used for over 2,000 years in ancient Chinese medicine to improve overall health and longevity.
Not impressed yet? Well, this superfruit (yes, super!) contains beta-carotene, an essential plant phytochemical known to promote healthy skin, reduce irritation and slow signs of aging. And who doesn’t want that?
This sweet and exotic (something we’d all like to be described as!) fruit contains oligonol, which reduces dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Lychee extract also contains high content of vitamin C, vitamin B-complex and phytonutrient flavonoids that neutralize free radicals, and protect skin cells from damage. Look for this ingredient when you’re trying to book brighter, more radiant skin an Extended Stay.
Acai Berry Oil
Back to the acai bowls, because those colorful healthy bowls contain more than meets the eye! As we age, our skin loses the ability to effectively retain moisture, causing fine lines and wrinkles to become more apparent. Oil helps plump your skin by passing through the lipid layer, meaning quicker, improved absorption of other ingredients and locking in moisture.
Acai berry oil specifically is rich in antioxidants, fatty acids, minerals and vitamins that tighten skin for more luminosity. Fine lines and wrinkles are plumped, because skin receives the vital nutrients and building blocks it needs to stay healthy.
Did you know that many oils lose potency over time due to exposure to light and/or oxygen? But acai berry oil is different: it remains effective in the long haul.
