Bilberries (Vaccinium myrtillus) are small, blue berries native to Northern Europe.
Applied to skin, bilberry is known to strengthen skin against signs of redness, likely due to its calming properties. Bilberry can also boost skin's environmental defenses in the presence of UVA light.
The tannin content of Bilberries make them a great astringent, helping the skin feel tightening and toned. Locking in moisture while simultaneously helping to balance oiliness is what makes Bilberry products a must for normal, combo or even oily skin types.
These same flavonoids, anthocyanosides, are also why bilberry has become a key ingredient in beauty products aimed at anti-aging. Bilberry's astringent properties are cleansing, tightening, and nourishing, plus they're packed with plenty of antioxidants to help strengthen our skin and protect it against free radicals.
