How To Get Skin So Smooth You’ll Get Carded: Blackberry Mask and Smoothie

Do you dream of getting carded again or even being called “Miss”? If so, reach for a blackberry. Blackberries are healthy and skin-friendly, which is why your skin will love this blackberry mask and smoothie.

However, blackberries offer a host of health benefits. They’re packed with manganese and vitamins A, C, and K, which blast wrinkles and keep skin young, says Healthline. Also, like raspberries, blackberries contain anthocyanins, which fight aging and free radicals.

Free radicals speed aging and make you look older than your years, but blackberries contain oodles of antioxidants, which help slow aging and get your skin glowing again.

So, treat yourself to this DIY blackberry face mask and smoothie, and who knows? You might even get carded.

Now, let’s get to work.

This mask takes a minute to make, but your skin will soak it up. All you need is some yogurt, blackberries, and honey.

Plus, yogurt and blackberries make the perfect pair. Nutrient-rich blackberries protect your skin, while yogurt’s lactic acid sloughs off dead skin to reveal your freshest complexion.

So grab a blender and some measuring cups, and then gather the items below.
