Beauty Trend Watch: Hot Ingredient Alert -- Acai
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!
