Red roses and candy hearts aren’t the only crimson powerhouses we should be thinking about in February—it’s also National Cherry Month! Tart cherries specifically have been proven to have major super fruit benefits like anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants (www.choosecherries.com), but all snacks aside, we’re choosing to celebrate this sweet national holiday by rounding up our favorite products that are seriously the cherry on top of a great month!
Bite Beauty Whipped Cherry Lip Scrub
Bite Beauty is known for its all-natural lip care and lipsticks, which are good enough to eat and come in some seriously amazing shades! The 100 percent-natural, cherry-flavored lip scrub has a mousse-like texture and is infused with exfoliating beads that smooth and condition lips (just in time for Valentine’s Day kisses!).
$18; exclusively at sephora.com and Sephora stores
Éminence Organic Skin Care Sour Cherry Masque
A great masque for anyone with dehydrated skin and large pores in need of a little toning and revitalization. Using sour cherry, which is high in vitamin C, this five-minute masque tones, while honey moisturizes parched skin, and cinnamon tightens up open pores.
Nature’s Gate Cherry Gel Toothpaste
This cherry-flavored toothpaste brightens smiles and freshens breath with an exclusive AntioxiDental Blend™ of seven oral health botanicals (cranberry, pomegranate, white tea, grape-seed, aloe, ginger, and bisabolol). The cherry taste is perfect for families with children who are looking for all-natural, fluoride-free, and kid-friendly toothpaste.
Naturopathica Sweet Cherry Brightening Enzyme Peel
The Sweet Cherry Brightening Enzyme Peel exfoliates and brightens skin in just five minutes, twice a week, thanks to sweet cherry puree, which is rich in vitamins and phytochemicals. Vitamin C and beta carotene function as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents and help to prevent hyperpigmentation and refine mature skin.
LUSH Sweetie Pie
A sweet treat for bath time—it’s no wonder why Sweetie Pie, a cherry-coconut, skin-softening jelly, is one of LUSH’s best-selling products. This jelly (full of mineral-rich carrageenan extract, derived from seaweed) is great for both hair and skin—and uses sour cherry for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant powers.
