Move over, green tea. There’s a new antioxidant in town!

Acai, sourced from a berry that grows in Brazil, is said to have at least three times the skin-protective and strengthening powers of other antioxidants. And all of a sudden, it’s popping up in everything from facial serums to body scrubs.

I vacation every year in Brazil. On the beaches, there are stands that make acai slushees, and the kids eat these in the afternoon, kind of like ice cream -- probably one reason why the entire population of Brazil is naturally beautiful and healthy!

Stars like Whitney Port, Jessica Szhor and Kim Cattrall are getting their glow on thanks to acai! Find it in Fresh Sugar Acai Body Scrub and Kiehl’s Acai Damage-Repairing Serum.
