? Don’t let the recession show in your face! Now the acai superfruit from the Amazon rainforest can be used on your skin to make it look younger and healthier and help you to get your next job!

? The acai berry was voted the #1 superfood on Oprah last year and has been flying off health food store shelves in the form of drinks and supplements ever since. But several studies have shown that it is effective in promoting healthy, rejuvenated skin!

? The acai berry, a small, round dark purple fruit similar to a grape, has been used by the people of Central and South America for thousands of years. Açai was shown to be at the top of the antioxidant rankings of any food in a study conducted by AIBMR Life Sciences in 2006. Thus, the antioxidant content of the acai berry is 10 times more potent than that of red grapes.

? As well as being naturally enriched with antioxidants, açai berries contain numerous vitamins and minerals to help promote good skin cell health. Acai is rich in flavonoids which fight inflammation, one of the leading causes of skin cell aging. Good fatty acids and nineteen amino acids in acai help to regenerate skin cell growth and vegetable sterols in acai help to preserve collagen and skin tone.

? Several skin care lines have already made use of this incredible natural antioxidant in their skin care formulations and many more will probably jump on the bandwagon.
