Lavender is well known for itsrelaxing properties. It is often used to reduce anxiety, to create feelings of calmness, and to help people sleep. The fragrant plant can be found in aromatherapy, hair care, and pain relievers, but how can it benefit your skin?
Please note: Lavender oil is safe for skin application, but be careful! It should NEVER be applied directly to the skin as it will cause severe irritation, and in rare cases, allergic reactions. Instead, dilute 1 drop of lavender oil in 10 drops of any carrier oil like almond or jojoba.
Lavender improves circulation by pumping more oxygen into skin cells. The increase in oxygen kick starts the skin cells, causing them to regenerate faster. These new cells give your skin a healthy glow. Better circulation also helps plump up wrinkles, making you look younger. Lavender also helps reduce the appearance of age spots and fine lines.
LAVENDER: A Natural Antioxidant
Lavender is full of antioxidants that are great for your skin. Antioxidant protection helps the skin by neutralizingfree radicals like UV rays and pollution. In addition, adding lavender oil to skincare products helps the texture of your skin, because the antioxidants in the oil remove dead skin cells, which in turn triggers the production of new skin cells that form a barrier against pollutants.
Lavender oil’s antimicrobial properties work well to clear your skin of acne. A wonderful anti-inflammatory, it will help get rid of any redness that comes with irritated skin. Lavender will even help reduce the frequency of breakouts, because it helps lower stress levels! However, if your breakouts are due to hormone level fluctuations, it is a better option to manage them at the core by exercising and eating a healthy diet.
