As our gardens reach full bloom, we are reminded of how floral essences offer up some of the most powerful skincare ingredients. Flowers used in skincare have been prized for centuries for their fragrant smells and potent therapeutic properties. Here are some of the most effective floral ingredients for the most petal pretty complexions.

Rejuvenating Rose
One of the most common flowers in beautycare is rose. Rose is best known for its rejuvenating properties, so is a common addition to anti-aging formulations. Rose water itself can be used to calm and tone the skin as well as promote cell regeneration. Because pure rose oil is wildly expensive, many products replace it with diluted or synthetic versions. Look for organic rose and avoid rose absolute for a higher quality rose essence.

Balancing Orange Blossom
Orange blossom, also known as neroli, is a fragrant flower that both purifies and heals skin tissue. Neroli oil helps to treat blemishes because of this along with it being an anti-microbial and scar healer. Neroli flower’s mending properties are also repairing for broken capillaries in the skin.

Skin-Loving Lavender
Lavender flowers are pretty as they are skin-loving. These purple buds accelerate the regenerating process; so have been long used as a remedy for cuts, scrapes and burns. The water extracted from Lavender also aids imbalanced and combination complexion types by regulating oil production and infusing the skin with hydration.

Healing Helichryse
Also called Immortelle, or Everlasting, the fact that the Helichryse flower promotes youthful, glowing skin built into its name. Helichryse has been traditionally used after tattooing and body piercing for its disinfecting and healing actions. Its extract and oil are also excellent for treating inflamed, depleted and sun-damaged skin.

Comforting Camellia
Camellia is the flower that green tea is made from. But beyond being ingested for its nutrients, the oil from its seeds also nourishes the body topically as it is packed with vitamins and fatty acids. Camellia oil is extremely comforting for irritation, making it a soothing and protective natural moisturizer.
