Exposed to dirt, pollution, chemicals, UV rays of the sun and microbes all around us, the skin needs protection. Collagen and elastin produced inside the skin give it the smooth, even-tone texture and elasticity. As a person ages, the production of elastic and collagen is gradually decreased, mostly around the late 20’s. Stress levels further catalyze the skin ageing process.
A good skin care regime packed with necessary skin foods such as vitamins, minerals and moisture help in taming the aging process. Wrinkles, dry patches, fine lines, lack-luster look and much more are the signs of aging that natural herbs effectively fight and keep the skin away from for a long time. Rather than turning to anti-aging creams full of chemicals, one must go for naturally occurring and growing ingredients that will not only be damage-free but also more potent.
Lavender Extracts are naturally occurring effective skin cleansers. Lavender regulates the production of oil by the sebaceous glands thereby guarding the skin from pollution, foreign bodies and infections that may harm the skin. All skin types benefit from Lavender extracts as they aim to bring the skin’s pH to its natural balance giving it a leverage over a disturbed pH skin which is prone to acne attack, allergies and much more. Skin eruptions are visibly reduced and skin remains hydrated for long.
Another very important property of Lavender Extracts is the ability to promote cell re-growth. Dead and damaged cells are exfoliated and in their place new cells are rapidly generated by the action of Lavender extract, renewing the skin with every use. Lavender’s sensual perfume soothes senses while Lavender Extracts do what they are best at, killing microbes, preventing aging and protecting the skin from attack.
Growing in the Mediterranean, Rosemary is an effective treatment in itself for premature skin aging. Essential oil from Rosemary is distilled from its leaves and flowers. This oil’s chemical contents make Rosemary an effective herb for skin care. From toning the skin to providing firmness, Rosemary oil is an effective astringent that keeps the oil production under control. Too much oil can gather dirt and cause pimples and acne.
Rosemary increases the flow of blood to the skin which improves complexion, helps nutrients travel faster to the skin’s layers and facilitates getting rid of toxins. Puffiness and swelling is visibly reduced with the use of Rosemary oil. Its stimulation effect refreshes and rejuvenates the skin, soothing the muscles. Skin regeneration is another aspect of Rosemary that makes it tick. Cells get proper nourishment and hence rapidly multiply reducing effects of ageing and fades away fine lines and wrinkles.
