We love u-pick farms and blackberries are always the winner, no one can resist their tart and sweet combination.

Nourishing blackberry hair mask.
Blackberries are not only delicious, but they are also good for your hair! They are packed with nutrients like vitamins C and E, which are essential for healthy hair growth. To make a blackberry hair mask, simply crush a handful of blackberries and apply them to your damp hair. Leave the mask on for 20 minutes, then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Your hair will be softer and shinier than ever!
The antioxidants will fight the harmful effects of the environment on the hair and make it shiny and voluminous. Be sure to use dark towels and protect anything berry-stained because this mask can get a little messy. It is recommended to do this hair mask in the shower or in the bathtub.
Anti-Aging Mask with Berries and Yogurt.
Blackberries are extremely rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, C and K. They fight free radicals that lead to premature aging and are a wonderful ingredient for a face mask. They contain more antioxidants than strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Combine their antioxidant power with the exfoliating properties of yogurt and you have a complete mask. To prepare it, you will need:
- 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt.
- 2 tablespoons of organic honey.
- 1/4 cup blackberries or mixed berries.
Mix the yogurt, honey and berries in a blender and mix everything so that the mixture is homogeneous. Apply to clean skin using a face brush and leave on for 10-20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and then apply a moisturizer.
Body scrub with honey and blackberries.
Maybe you have a few overripe berries, or it’s impossible to return them to the freezer? Instead of throwing them in the trash, use these blackberries for an exfoliating body scrub. To prepare it, you would need:
- 4 tablespoons of organic honey.
- 2/3 cup blackberries.
- 2 teaspoons of fine sugar.
Mash the blackberries with a fork or run them through a blender until chopped. Add honey and sugar and mix well. The coarser the sugar, the more exfoliating/abrasive it will be.
In the shower, as it can be messy, gently apply and rub in the sugar in a circular motion, focusing on rough areas like elbows and knees. Once you have thoroughly scrubbed your body, you can leave it to act as a body mask for 10 minutes for maximum benefits. After 10 minutes, take a shower and apply body moisturizer.
Fortifying blackberry hair mask.
If your hair breaks easily when you brush or comb it, try a blackberry hair mask to improve its elasticity. Blackberries are indeed a food rich in vitamin A that helps strengthen and repair hair. You would only need:
- 2/3 cup blackberries.
- 2 tsp of coconut milk.
In a blender, blend the blackberries until smooth. Add enough coconut milk to make a paste, then apply directly to clean, damp hair. Leave for 15 minutes, then rinse.
