Strawberry season is upon us, and there’s no better time to indulge in these juicy, vibrant berries. There’s a unique joy in visiting a countryside strawberry farm, where you can handpick the freshest, ripest strawberries and take home a basket or two (or more!) of these delightful gems. Enjoying seasonal foods is not only great for your health but also beneficial for your skin. With the height of summer heat waves, what could be more refreshing than a cool, delightful treat? Enter: Vegan Strawberries Cream Sorbet. Here are just a few reasons why we love strawberries:

Low Glycemic

Strawberries have a low glycemic index compared to other fruits, meaning they won’t cause a rapid spike in your blood sugar levels. This is particularly important for managing acne, as high blood sugar levels can trigger a cascade of hormonal changes that increase oil production and inflammation in the skin.

Antioxidants

Strawberries are rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and polyphenols, which are vital for skin health and acne management. Antioxidants combat free radicals, reducing skin cell damage and inflammation, key factors in acne development. Vitamin C supports collagen production for skin repair, while polyphenols have anti-inflammatory properties that help minimize acne redness and swelling.

Rich in Fiber

Strawberries aid in digestion and help maintain a healthy gut which is crucial for acne management. A balanced microbiome reduces systemic inflammation and improves nutrient absorption. Improved digestion also ensures that toxins are efficiently eliminated from the body, preventing them from being excreted through the skin.

Creamy Coconut

No need for dairy in this delicious treat. Coconut milk steps in to provide a rich and creamy texture without clogging your pores. Coconut milk contains lauric acid, a beneficial fat with antimicrobial properties that can help fight acne-causing bacteria. This makes it a fantastic choice for those prone to breakouts. Research has shown that the medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) in coconut milk can also support metabolism, reduce inflammation, and fuel the brain.

We’ve naturally sweetened this vegan strawberries and cream sorbet with 100% pure maple syrup, a healthier alternative to refined white sugar. Maple syrup not only provides essential minerals like zinc and manganese, which are important for maintaining healthy skin and immune function, but also has a lower glycemic index than white sugar. This means it leads to more stable energy levels and less impact on your blood sugar, which is crucial for managing acne. High blood sugar levels can trigger hormonal changes that increase oil production and inflammation, leading to breakouts . By choosing natural sweeteners like maple syrup, you can enjoy a sweet treat without the negative side effects associated with refined sugars.

Paragraph

Let's finally get your skin cleared up.

Acne is more than skin deep; it's a signal of internal imbalances. This explains why prescriptions, medicated creams, and high-end facials often fall short. Clearing your skin requires an inside-out approach, and we're dedicated to guiding you every step of the way.
