What it Does:
Acai WebMD claims "acai oil may be a safe alternative to other tropical oils used in beauty products such as facial and body creams, anti-aging skin therapies, shampoos and conditioners, and other products. When acai oil is processed and stored long-term, the antioxidant levels remain high"
Strawberries are chock full of vitamin C and contain round seeds that gently exfoliate the skin, naturally. Yogurt contains a naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acid from lactic acid in the cream that exfoliates and renews the cellular surface of the skin, while brightening and toning with the help of the clay.
Resveratrol is rich in vitamin E and polyphenols and has been linked to anti-aging claims in medical research.
You can find the above ingredients at fine grocers, whole foods and natural supermarkets. White, kaolin or green clays can substitute if you cannot find pink.
