Did you know that the month of July is National Blueberry Month? It’s easy to see why these sweet little berries deserve a whole month to celebrate their awesomeness. They’re good for eating, juicing, dying, homespun beauty regimens, and more.
Blueberries have historically been used in teas, compresses, and other homeopathic remedies for centuries. They’re low in fat, sodium, and calories, but pack a powerful antioxidant punch, making them an awesome food choice when your body is healing from a new tattoo or piercing mod. Plus, they also appear in many blue colored vegan hair dyes, thanks to their powerful pigment anthocyanin.
But blueberry coloring is good for more than just your tresses; deep blues are making waves in fashion this year too. From cobalt, to sapphire, to indigo, rich blue hues are a great of the moment accessory. For extra oomph, try a few coordinated pops of shining titanium. And remember, the fun doesn’t have to stop when the month ends; being blue (in the good way) is always in style.
