It’s an absolute must to pencil in some time for self-care, especially in the midst of a busy day or week. When it comes to your self-care products, it’s best to look for ones that don’t include harsh chemicals on their list of ingredients—a hard and fast approach to taking care of your body doesn’t necessarily mean garnering better results than if you were to choose products with natural ingredients. Below are some natural ingredients you should look for in your beauty products and what they can do for you.
1. Coneflower helps strengthen your hair.
Coneflower is commonly used in herbal medicine to help address colds, flu, and even skin-related concerns like allergies or eczema. Its extract also helps promote hair growth by enhancing blood circulation and strengthening your hair follicles.
2. White tea boosts hair growth.
3. Lavender oil keeps you relaxed during me time.
The scent of lavender oil is widely known as a relaxant, which is what makes it one of the most popular essential oils. Its fragrance alone can help calm the mind, put you at ease, and even treat mild anxiety. Add to that the healing properties of lavender oil to help reduce inflammation and treat damaged skin tissue, it’s like a spa in a bottle for both mind and body.
4. Rosemary extract moisturizes skin.
Rosemary has more use than just as a kitchen condiment. As a natural skincare ingredient, a study proved that rosemary extract can help improve skin hydration and elasticity. It also functions as an antimicrobial and antioxidant to help treat skin concerns like acne and oily skin.
5. Lotus flower helps reduce the appearance of pores.
In various Asian cultures, the lotus flower is a symbol of purity. Since it's rich in antioxidants, it often acts as a moisturizing agent, giving your skin a natural glow. It also helps increase skin elasticity, erases fine lines, and gives instant hydration to your skin.
