Botanicals for Softer Skin
Many complexion concerns focus on the skin’s visible appearance: lines, wrinkles, redness, pigmentation and dullness. It makes sense – these are, of course, the qualities we’re most likely to notice when looking in the mirror. But equal attention should be given to the way your skin feels. Is it rough, tight or dehydrated? Let’s see how you can overcome both.
Achieving skin that feels soft, hydrated and well-balanced takes commitment and regular use of the right botanical ingredients. That’s the true wonder of the Rose – this gorgeous flower craves six hours of sun per day and yet boasts delicately soft petals with unique hydrating properties.
One of our favourite Rose varieties grown on the Jurlique farm in South Australia is Rosa gallica. Not only does it have the most sublime scent, it’s also known for its superior hydrating properties, capable of restoring the skin and leaving it feeling soft and supple.
While Rose is gentle enough for most skin types, those with very sensitive skin can benefit even more from soothing botanicals, like our farm-grown Calendula. This botanical is rich in antioxidants and oleanolic acid, which helps to calm the complexion and soothe even the most sensitive skin. It’s also ideal for skin that reacts to environmental aggressors.
For skin that’s very dry or dehydrated, a botanical oil, such as Rose Hip or Safflower, is full of essential fatty acids to deeply nourish. They provide immediate relief from dehydration and over time, help restore balance to the skin so that it feels softer and looks smoother. Once sub-par skin will finally feel satisfied – as will that face in the mirror.
