Acai is an indigenous berry found in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest, jam-packed with antioxidants and both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, making it an excellent anti-inflammatory powerhouse. Thanks to its nutrient-dense content, the delicious purple-hyed superfruit offers a vast array of health benefits, from boosting immunity to improving energy and focus, and even helping to promote better heart health. While acai’s boundless health benefits are pretty impressive, it also offers a slew of skin-enhancing powers when applied topically as well. Acai comes in a wide variety of forms, including seed oil and extract, which are the two most common additives in acai-infused skin and body care products, and both have been found to have major anti-aging benefits to the skin.
Not only is acai berry chock full of anti-aging superstar vitamin C, but it’s also armed with an abundance of Vitamins A, B, and E, which have all been found to boost our skin’s regeneration process and heal damaged skin cells. And, just like your favorite vitamin C serum, acai is also capable of helping to protect skin from free radical damage—one of the biggest causes of premature aging. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite superfruit body creams that will soothe, firm, and hydrate your body from head to toe.
