Lets learn about the best ingredients for each skin issue.
Best Natural Ingredients For Every Skin Issue
Problem: Sagging Skin | Fix: Acai Berry
Acai berries are an antioxidant dynamo. One of the best natural ingredients for your skin, this fruit from Central and South America comes chock full of Vitamin A, C and E antioxidants. In skin care, it’s used to reduce the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. And not only does acai put a check to the fine lines and wrinkles, it improves the look of elasticity in your skin. For example, the Firm Skin Acai Masque is powered by acai, blueberry, raspberry and blackberry to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Problem: Wrinkles | Fix: Goji Berry
Another natural ingredient that’s good for your skin is the goji berry! An important part of the Chinese diet for millennia, this superfruit was historically to improve eyesight, strengthen the immune system and stimulate circulation. For skin care, goji berries smooth out the look of lines and wrinkles, protect the skin against ultraviolet-induced damage and have also been shown to block melanin production, helping to fade dark spots.
According to Allure, “Its antioxidant ability comes from its natural content of Vitamin C, polysaccharides, flavonoids such as quercetin, carotenoids such as blue light-protective zeaxanthin and beta-carotene.”
Problem: Breakouts | Fix: Tomato
The trendiest natural ingredient for problem skin, the common tomato is packed with lycopene, an antioxidant that helps reduce the appearance of breakouts. Not only do you want this delicious fruit on your menu, you also want to apply tomato extracts topically to reduce the appearance of acne.
Problem: Uneven Skin Tone | Fix: Licorice Root
Another popular ingredient which originates in China, licorice root is effective in reducing hyperpigmentation. The root contains an ingredient called glabridin which brightens the appearance of the skin by blocking an enzyme needed to produce melanin (pigment) in the skin.
Problem: Irritated Skin | Fix: Chamomile
Just as a cup of chamomile tea soothes the soul, a topical application of chamomile extract goes far to calm the appearance of the skin. Chamomile relieves the complexion and helps balance irritated skin.
