The 4 Magic Ingredients to Restore Your Skin
Posted on January 31 2019
We all want perfect skin and will go to great lengths to get there. Whether we're over exfoliating, over cleansing or saturating with serums, we're constantly on a path to achieving that fabulous glow. One thing that's important to note is that our skin is an organ and needs time to recharge and rebalance. Over exfoliating or just over pampering can disturb our skin's natural oil balance, remove healthy skin cells and weaken it's natural barrier.
If this sounds all too familiar and you feel as though your skin is in need of some serious TLC, look out for below ingredients and make sure they are included in your current skincare routine.
Pomegranates are rich in vitamin C! And vitamin C helps speed up cell turnover, significantly improves hydration, evens out your skin tone and shields skin from the visible impacts of pollution. Essentially, vitamin C is a nutrient VERY important for skin's overall health. Pomegranates are also loaded with antioxidants such as proanthocyanidins and flavonoids that work well in a skincare routine by delaying the signs of ageing (such as wrinkles).
2. Centella Asiatica
Also known as Cica, Gotu Kola or Indian Pennywort, is a small plant that grows only up to six inches in height. It's mainly found in shady and damp areas in many different parts of the world. Cica is packed full of antioxidants that boost collagen production and is loaded with Vitamins C, A, B1 and B2, which together help brighten the skin and slow down signs of ageing.
Cantella Asiatica does a great job with promoting collagen production and also inhibits inflammation that leads to scarring. But wait, there's more... it also contains madecassic acid; a miracle for acne-prone skin, as it fights against enzymes that cause inflammation.
Geranium is widely regarded for its positive effects on various skin disorders such as acne, rashes, eczema, dermatitis, fungal infections and others.
One of the greatest aspects of geranium essential oil is that it is a cicatrisant; Meaning it has skin-healing, wound healing and cell regenerative properties! It can help fade scars gradually and make your skin look flawless.
Geranium is also an excellent anti ageing combatant. How? Geranium encourages facial muscle and tissue contractions and in turn tightens our skin. The result?, less wrinkles and overall skin sag.
4. Goji Berry
Sometimes, that ingredient all health food fanatics go crazy about also doubles as phenomenal skin care staple. Goji berries are full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that help reduce skin inflammation, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, increase skin firmness, reduce the appearance of scars and protect against free radicals. But its glory lies in its ability to control melanin content, which means reduced hyper-pigmentation and a more even complexion.
Sounds great but where to start? Some of your skincare products may already have these ingredients. In fact, they probably do. If not, you can find all 4 of these in the Vitamasques Ruby Face Mask, which is a part of the Vitamasques Gemstone collection.
