Spring is mere weeks away and we’re looking forward to shedding our winter clothes and our winter skin! It’s no secret that blooms are good for your mood, but they’re also good for your face and while we won’t go as far as sticking flowers to our forehead, we will shake up our beauty routine with these botanically based potions.
Hibiscus flowers contain alpha hydroxy acids that gently exfoliate and give the skin a youthful glow so use this hydrating face mist after you cleanse and before you moisturize.
For those of you of a certain age who need a little plumping and firming, why not turn to the flower power of kangaroo paw in this day cream that has the added benefit of smoothing out fine lines.
We knew that echinacea flowers help cure colds but didn’t realize that they also contain anti-oxidants that protect the skin from inflammation. Dior’s micellar water removes makeup with one swipe while delivering the soothing benefits of this versatile bloom.
Known for its ability to protect even the most sensitive skin from dryness, calendula is mixed with aloe vera in this gel masque which will instantly refresh winter-stressed skin and give your complexion that fresh spring glow.
And finally, what better way to scrub away the winter than with a body scrub with the invigorating power of geranium leaves – this botanical beauty not only helps purify and calm the skin, its scent may just cure the winter blues. What’s your spring beauty routine? We’d love to hear!
