Acai berry also boosts circulation, making it an excellent ingredient for women who have dark spots or other discoloration of their skin. It is especially useful on under-eye circles, which are created by leaking from broken capillaries. These capillaries deposit colored particles of blood in the hollows beneath eyes, creating a bruised, dark-blue discoloration. Acai berry can increase blood flow to the area, which will clear away the particles and help to mend the broken capillaries.

The nutrients in Acai fruit are essential to restoring and rejuvenate skin. An application of a product that contains acai can contribute to restoring any broken skin. Plus, encourages skin to grow new, more vibrant layers of cells, for a more youthful appearance. It also promotes the regeneration of elastin and collagen beneath the skin, which can help to fill out and plump the appearance of sunken, wrinkled skin.

Last but not least, acai berries contain oleic acids, which are some of the best natural moisturizers on the market. This acid not only penetrates the deepest layers of skin, for exceptional hydration but also helps to strengthen skin cells, making their walls stronger and more flexible. They become resilient to damage and can hold onto moisture instead of excreting it onto the surface of the skin.
