If you have ever had the opportunity to pick raspberries, you know how fun it can be to work your way through the bushes and pull fresh, ripe raspberries right from the spiny stalks. While most people are familiar with red raspberries, there are some different varieties, ranging in color from black to purple, to yellow, to white.

Antioxidants

Raspberries are packed with helpful antioxidants. In the skin care community, there is a lot of discussion about antioxidants, what they are for, and how valuable they are for the skin. The simplest description of what antioxidants do is protect the skin from harm, especially from sun damage. When the skin is exposed to too much sun or environmental pollutants, it can encounter free radicals, which can significantly harm the surface of the skin and the under layers. As they continue to destroy individual skin cells, they can cause some cells to mutate and being to reproduce unchecked, which can be the beginning stages of cancer. The antioxidants in raspberries protect the skin from free radicals.

Nutrients

Raspberries are high in some vital nutrients, from vitamin C to iron. Vitamin C is especially important for women who want to improve the brightness of their skin and who want to combat the signs of aging. With the right levels of nutrients, the skin can readily replenish itself, preventing lines and wrinkle which are exacerbated by dead and dying skin cells.

Naturally high source of Salicylic Acid

Raspberry is one of the only fruits that is naturally high in salicylic acid, which is a favorite of most people when it comes to natural acne treatments. Unlike other acne treatments which dry out the skin, salicylic acid helps to slough off dead skin cells and keep the skin at a balanced moisture level. This keeps your pores clear so that bacteria can't get clogged.
