Lavender is the most widely used essential oil in aromatherapy and can actually be found in plenty of popular skin care products. This fragrant plant does far more than just add a beautiful scent to your product, lavender has some amazing natural beauty-enhancing benefits and can do wonders for your skin!
What makes lavender so special?
Lavender has a number of beauty-enhancing properties. Some of the main benefits of including lavender oil in your skin care routine include:
Protection from free radicals
Lavender oil is a potent source of antioxidants that fight free radical damage - caused by environmental stressors like pollution and the sun. This means the antioxidants in lavender oil can help to protect your skin from damage and reduce the appearance of things like wrinkles, fine lines, and dark age spots.
Acne often flares up when your skin does not have enough oil. Dry skin can start to overproduce oil to compensate, leading to clogged pores and breakouts. Lavender oil not only moisturises skin, but itsanti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties can also help fight the bacteria that causes inflammation and acne. This makes lavender oil perfect for preventing and also healing acne.
Lavender oil is commonly used in herbal remedies for promoting relaxation through its calming, desative, and anti-convulsive effects. It can therefore be effective in treating conditions such as insomnia and anxiety. Using lavender in your skin care routine will allow you to enjoy the relaxing benefits and can also help you to manage daily stress.
Lavenderoil is renowned for its skin regenerative properties which can effectively delay the appearance of fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles. Using lavender oil as part of your regular skin care routine can help prevent and even erase the damage that time inflicts, allowing you to maintain a youthful radiant complexion for longer.
Heals injured skin
Lavender oil has been used for centuries to clean wounds, treat burns and other skin injuries. Its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties also help skin to heal faster, while fighting and preventing further infection.
Soothes dry skin conditions
As we discussed above, lavender oil does an amazing job at balancing your skin’s moisture barrier so it isn’t too oily or dry. This means that it can be used to help soothe dry skin conditions like eczema, and reduce symptoms like redness and itching.
How can I get the benefits of lavender oil?
Including lavender oil in your daily skin care routine is a great way to keep skin looking healthy and beautiful. Make sure that you look for natural products that are free from chemicals like parabens. These ingredients can be harsh on the skin and could have a number of harmful long-term effects on your skin and body. You can have confidence in the fact that all of our products are made using the highest-quality natural ingredients, are dermatologically tested, and always paraben and cruelty free, making them gentle on the skin and perfect for every skin type.
There are a number of ways to include lavender oil in your skin care routine. One of the most effective ways to benefit from the properties of lavender oil is through a hydrogel face mask. This is because hydrogel masks can maximise the absorption of all the benefits of lavender oil directly to the skin.
What is a hydrogel face mask and how do I use one?
Hydrogel sheet masks are the newest generation of face mask and were designed to offer improved, longer-lasting results. They are made using hydrogel, a unique plant-based formula, which has the ability to hold huge amounts of liquid and stick to your face like a second skin. This allows superior absorption of the nourishing serums that are within the sheet mask. Hydrogel facial masks are the easiest way to give skin a serious boost in hydration, due to the masks unique hydrogel formula. Making sure your skin is properly hydrated and supple can enhance elasticity, plump the skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, for a more radiant and youthful complexion.
Hydrogel face masks are super easy to use! You simply open the packet, carefully remove the mask and place it on your face, let it work its magic for 20-30 minutes, and then remove. You can easily treat your skin to a hydrogel mask while doing chores around the house, or even on a flight, as there’s no need to wash your face after. All it takes is a 20 minute mask session to replenish hydration and nutrients for happier, healthier skin.
