This little blue fruit is an antioxidant powerhouse: It’s got ample amounts of vitamin C, plus phytonutrients called anythocyanidins (which are found in the berries’ blue pigment). Besides their antioxidant benefits, blueberries may inhibit collagen breakdown, says Valori Treloar, M.D., an integrative dermatologist in Newton, Mass. In one study, subjects who applied blueberry extract to their skin showed an increase in skin thickness and moisture, as well as an improvement in fine lines.
