Ancient wisdom & hidden gems

Looking through my skincare, I see so much fascinating facts & legendary benefits renowned for centuries in these ingredients (and interesting stories!) So just thought I note down some key ones for some #skincarechat 

  1. Rose: soothing, toning.
  2. Cucumber: cooling, calming.
  3. Brown Sugar: prevent moisture, buff away dry skin cells.
  4. Green Tea Seeds:’moisture seeds’.
  5. Ginseng Berry: contains 15 times more saponin than normal ginseng; nutrition and shine.
  6. Plankton: fountain of youth; anti-ageing.
  7. Indigo: anti-inflammatory, reduce irritation, natural healing for all skin types esp skin consistent with symptoms of dermatitis and eczema.
  8. (Activated) Charcoal: draw out dirt and pores.
  9. French Sea Clay: Absorbs impurities and toxic substances, minimize pore size.
  10. Volcanic Pumice Rock: exfoliate, clear dead skin cells.
  11. Coconut: immediate skin conditioning.

Love skincare!
