Feed Your Beauty: Blackberry Sage Cooler

Everywhere we turn, people are talking about the amazing benefits of berries; be it Raspberries, Strawberries, Blueberries or our favorite, Blackberries! When we saw that our favorite berry teamed up with one of our favorite infusions, Sage, we knew this was a drink meant for our fans!

 

The antioxidants found in Blackberries help your body fight oxidative stress caused by free radicals that can lead to acne and premature aging. Vitamin C is one of our favorite antioxidants and is largely responsible for the health of collagen, which breaks down the older we get. Thanks to this super-fruit, time is on our side!

 

And how could we forget about Sage, one of the three extracts used in our fan-favorited Argan Infusion! Sage stimulates cell production and increases blood circulation, leaving the skin plump and smooth. The herb is rich in calcium and Vitamin, both needed for healthy cell regeneration. Young cells, young skin!

 

Do we need to say more? Check out this skin-loving beverage and enjoy the road to glow!
