It is such a great blessing that we are surrounded by beautiful things that have amazing characteristics, which we can then use for many different things. Take flowers as an example. They are good as decoration for the home, giving off amazing and natural scents, and as a present to someone special. Moreover, their extracts can be incorporated into skin care products for that healthier and clearer complexion everyone dreams of having.
Here are four flowers that have great benefits to our skin:
Rose is called the “queen of all flowers” because of its hydrating powers and ability to heal broken blood vessels, making it perfect for mature skin type. This flower is the best at rejuvenating the skin, as it really purifies and preserves it. Rose is also able to fight free-radical damage, as well as condition the scalp and promote the growth of healthy hair. It is also able to minimize scars, stretch marks and wrinkles.
Lavender has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It can also balance sebum production to prevent the formation of pimples. This flower is also great for renewing skin cells making it perfect for speeding up the healing process of cuts, burns and abrasions. Lavender contains a huge amount of antioxidants that fight the harmful effects of pollutants.
Chamomile has the ability to soothe dry and irritated skin, as well as improve its elasticity. It has long been used in the ancient times to treat wounds and promote healing because of its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Moreover, it is capable of naturally brightening the skin and giving it glow. Chamomile can also reduce the formation of acne, as well as eliminate scars. Lastly, it has the ability to rejuvenate the cells, help shrink pores and slow down the ageing process.
Sunflower is rich in Vitamin E, Sterols and Squalene, which are important in keeping the hair and skin healthy. It is also able to help in retaining moisture and treating acne. This flower is overflowing with antioxidants that aid in preventing early signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. Additionally, it has the ability to create a protective barrier for the prevention of UV damage.
These flowers just go to show that our environment does have everything we need, not only to make our skins healthier but to live a more amazing life.
