5 REASONS YOU SHOULD INVEST IN LAVENDER BASED SKIN CARE PRODUCTS
Skin is always in. We can’t stress this enough. As a result, we’re always on the lookout for better ways to care for our skin. Our latest discovery is the sweet-smelling Lavender. As it turns out the flower, as we know it, isn’t only good for its scent but has some skin repair qualities too.
Take a look at few of those we found:
1. Treatment of Acne
Lavender is one of few natural ingredients you utilise to aid in getting rid of acne troubles. It has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that can fight the bacteria that causes acne and inflammation.
2. Treatment Of Eczema
Eczema can be a very embarrassing skin condition which many have deemed incurable. However, lavender has the ability to relieve itching and reduce the symptoms of eczema. It also helps the irritated areas on the skin by adding moisture, thereby accelerating the healing process.
3. Detoxify The Skin
Given the obnoxious variety of environmental toxins and other pollutants, our skin is exposed to most of the time, it is not surprising to know that our skin’s health is deteriorating with each passing day.
But we have lavender to the rescue – it contains powerful antioxidants that can fight against the harmful effects of pollutants on the skin.
In one study conducted by the Howard University College of Medicine, Washington, DC, it was found that lavender oil was one of the few potent essential oils that can inhibit the growth of skin bacteria
4. Heals Burns
The antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties of lavender oil again play a role here. The oil is beneficial in healing the burns, and also helps treat the scars caused by them. In addition, lavender oil also acts as a pain reliever.
Just add a few drops of lavender oil to the burnt area after keeping it under running water for about 10 minutes. Doing so can accelerate the healing process. However, keep in mind that you must consult a doctor immediately in the case of serious burns.
5. Tones the Skin
Lavender tones and makes your skin firm as it boosts circulation, thus resulting in an adequate supply of oxygen and nutrition to the skin cells. This helps in keeping the cells healthy and boosting their renewal process.
You can make a toner at home with lavender and water. Boil 100 ml of water in a bowl and then put in the lavender buds, so that they are completely submerged. Cover the bowl, leaving the brew to steep for a few hours. Drain the mixture into a clean glass bottle and refrigerate it. Spray some of this lavender water on a cotton pad and gently wipe your face with it (after washing your face in the morning). This will refresh your skin like a toner.
