Botanicals: How Can They Enhance Your Skincare Routine?

Botanicals: How Can They Enhance Your Skincare Routine?

When it comes to skincare, whether you need help tackling excess oil and dry skin, going back to basics is often best. Products containing natural ingredients such as botanicals can quickly target your skin concerns while leaving your complexion looking and feeling fresh. Swapping chemicals for naturally derived products could be the key to improving your skin.

In this blog, we discuss all you need to know about botanicals.

What are botanicals?

Botanical ingredients are extracts from plant’s roots, leaves, bark and flowers.  When used in skincare, the plant is dissolved and the liquid or powder can be added into skincare products often in a concentrated form. From cleansers and toners, botanical extracts have become the future of skincare and new ingredients are coming to market every year.

Some of the most popular ingredients include:

  • Aloe vera
  • Tea tree
  • Lavender
  • Rosemary oil

How do botanical ingredients benefit your skin?

Thanks to mother nature, botanicals provide a wide range of skincare benefits. Each plant has its own properties which can prevent, heal and enhance the look and feel or your skin. Complicated formulas often struggle to target specific areas for long-term effectiveness. In comparison, botanical-based ingredients contain essential vitamins and minerals so your skin can benefit from the pure properties without them being masked in chemicals.

Why switch to botanical skincare?

If you want to have more control over what you’re putting on your skin, choosing botanical products is a great place to start. It can be hard to know exactly what is in your skincare items, but with natural ingredients you know that your skin is being treated kindly. Botanicals can restore your skin and help it flourish, unlike some artificial ingredients that can do more harm than good. If your current skincare routine is not working, give botanical inclusive products a go and treat your skin to naturally derived ingredients that are effective, sustainable and specially sourced for you.
