Flowers are Beautiful—and Great for Your Skin
We’re always happy to see flowers blooming in our gardens—but what if we told you that flowers belong in our skincare too? Flowering plants have skincare benefits that reach much farther than just their lovely scents (though they do have those too). Flowers have been used in skincare for centuries, sourced and distilled for their anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties. Rose oils and waters are known to have soothing and redness-reducing benefits while calendula, or marigold, is hailed for its moisturizing and calming effect on the skin. Orchid has been used for ages to repair and protect, and both camellia and hibiscus are rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants. That's why botanical-based skincare is blooming across the skincare aisles this season. We love the natural benefits that these innovative products bring to our cleansing, moisturizing, and toning routines, so we’ve chosen a few of the best natural ingredient-filled products for you to add to your daily skincare regimen. From roses to sage, these products incorporate great skin benefits in innovative floral skincare. Try these toners, masks, oils, and creams to nourish and pamper yourself this season. Bloom on, gorgeous skin!
