The Benefits of Blueberry Extract in Skincare
Why Blueberry Extract is Great For Your Skin
With skincare fads everywhere, it’s difficult to find natural, safe ingredients that work. Many products promise to improve your skin, but they don’t deliver and sometimes even make it worse.
Blueberry extract is clinically proven to improve your skin’s moisture barrier, which is necessary for beautiful skin free of blemishes, dryness, and fine lines.
What are the Benefits of Blueberry Extract?
Using skincare products with blueberry extract will help drastically improve your skin’s moisture barrier, which is the outermost layer of your skin that protects your deeper levels and helps to retain nutrients and (you guessed it!) moisture in your skin.
Blueberry extract is a natural antioxidant and pro-retinol that works on a cellular level to balance your skin, improving texture and appearance. The nutrient-dense makeup of blueberry extract feeds your skin what it needs to lock in moisture and help fight dryness, dullness, and large pores.
The rejuvenating properties in blueberry fruit skincare, like Roccoco’s blueberry age cream, work to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, skin impurities like blemishes, and uneven texture by boosting moisture retention and nourishing your skin.
By giving your skin the moisture it needs to remain a protective shield from skin pollutants, aging, and stress, your skin will be bouncy, elastic, and glowy no matter what your age is.
What is Glycation?
Glycation is an automatic process resulting from excess glucose in the skin. This causes a chemical reaction where sugar molecules in the excess glucose bind to the important properties that keep your skin healthy and supple—collagen and elastin protein.
Your collagen becomes weak as a result of the advanced glycation end products (AGEs) that form from this reaction. Without healthy collagen levels, your skin loses its elasticity and firmness, leaving you will dull, unhealthy skin that looks and feels older.
A high sugar food intake makes glycation more likely, as well as anything that makes your glucose spike, like irregular eating habits, poor sleep, and a lack of exercise.

Take a Deeper Look at the Blueberry Health Benefits
Blueberries aren’t just healthy for you to eat, they are great when applied to your skin, too!
Blueberry extract’s natural, nutrient-dense composition comes directly from the fruit, so all of the benefits of blueberries are retained in skincare.
Retinol and Vitamin A
Blueberries are rich in vitamin A and retinoids, which stimulate collagen production, fight AGEs, and heal your skin’s moisture barrier. Pro-retinol targets fine lines and wrinkles, breakouts, dullness, and texture concerns.
Antioxidants fight inflammation and allow your skin to repair itself, correcting visible skin concerns from the inside out.
Vitamins C and E
Vitamins C and E are powerful antioxidants that boost circulation and moisture, leading to bright, dewy skin that’s free of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, dryness, and breakouts.
Blueberry extract contains a ton of anthocyanins, an antioxidant with natural sun protection and anti-inflammatory properties that disturb AGEs by strengthening collagen and healing your moisture barrier. This protects from oxidative stress and unnecessary aging, leaving you with beautiful, healthy skin.

Blueberry extract is naturally rich in the properties you need to retain moisture and correct visible skin stress.
