Red raspberries are delishhhh. We can all enjoy some fresh raspberries in a spritzer, in a smoothie, or on a bougie charcuterie board, right?
Beyond raspberries' great flavor, they also have a ton of skin health benefits. The best part? You can get even snag raspberry seed oil that packs in all the positive effects in one handy skincare product!
At The Skinny Confidential, we have our own ah-mazing face oil called the ICE QUEEN FACE OIL that doesn’t only have raspberry seed oil, but it also has other beneficial fruit essence like blueberry seed oil and pomegranate seed oil! Talk about a 3 for 1?!
All that being said . . . we know you’re wondering what the hell is so great about raspberry seed oil??? And, why do we see it as a must-have skincare ingredient??? Here’s the DL on the benefits of raspberry seed oil for skincare:
10 Raspberry Benefits for the Skin
Boosts moisture and hydration.
Raspberry seed oil is both a humectant and emollient, which means it absorbs water and keeps it trapped in. This means seriously hydrated and healthy skin!
So, if you struggle with dry skin or just want that dewy glow, definitely incorporate raspberry seed oil to your skincare routine!
Protects against environmental damage.
Every day, our skin is exposed to a bunch of shit from our environment. Cigarette smoke, pollution, perfume, air freshener, and more are swirling around in our air all. the. time.
This stuff can be super damaging to your skin, but luckily, raspberry seed oil adds a layer of protection to your skin to keep the bad stuff out.
Absorbs UV rays.
Just like raspberry seed oil protects against environmental damage, it also protects against UV damage. If you’ve been with us for a bit, you know we do not recommend ANY sun exposure (no sunkissed tan for The Skinny Confidential crew.)
The sun can worsen signs of aging, like loss of elasticity and wrinkles. It can also cause sun spots and blotches of uneven skin tone—not to mention the risk of cancer!
Because of those hydration benefits of raspberry seed oil, the product can actually help strengthen your skin!
It boosts hydration and moisture to actually increase the integrity and barrier function of your skin. AMAZING!
Helps with eczema & psoriasis.
Omega-3 fatty acids (which raspberries have plenty of) have been shown to be a helpful natural healing ingredient for quite a few skin conditions. If you deal with irritation from eczema, psoriasis, skin cancer, or even chronic dry skin, raspberry seed oil can be super helpful.
One other health benefit of raspberry seed oil is its antimicrobial properties. It can actually help cleanse your skin of some seriously gross germs and bacteria.
Fights free radicals.
Free radicals are bad for your body. They cause a process called oxidative stress that negatively impacts your lipids, proteins, and DNA. They can even trigger diseases!!! No thanks.
Antioxidants are key to fighting free radicals, and luckily raspberries are rich in antioxidants!!!
Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are both helpful for improving acne! The raspberry seed oil has these fatty acids, of course, and it also has anti-inflammatory properties that can make your acne less angry looking. You know, the red and irritated kind!
Evens out oil production.
No matter your skin type, raspberry seed oil can help with oil production. When your skin isn’t well hydrated or hydrated consistently, your body produces excess oil, which can make your face look greasy and it can even cause acne!
Since your skin will be perfectly hydrated with the ICE QUEEN FACE OIL, your oil production will probably normalize. You’ll have perfectly moist skin! (But, not too moist, of course.)
Bonus tip: Try it on your hair too!
Keeps skin youthful and snatched.
Raspberry seed oil can also help boost collagen and elastin, which prevents fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, the hydration and protection benefits help fight premature aging, because it keeps your skin SUPER healthy.
Oh, and that vitamin A encourages your skin cells to regenerate for smoother, tighter, and more youthful skin. We’re telling you, this stuff is incredible!
Raspberry seed oil is a must-have skincare product!
All in all, raspberry seed oil is a super beneficial skincare product that packs SOOO MANY benefits. You’re seriously getting like 10 products in one with all these positive effects.
If you’re ready to add another bullet point to your HOT MINUTE PLANNER, run for the ICE QUEEN FACE OIL. It’s got your raspberry seed oil wrapped up in an adorable pink package.
