There are many skincare products that use lavender as one of their ingredients. One primary reason for inclusion is to beautifully scent the product, but other major benefits of lavender for skin care are the cleansing and calming properties.
Lavender, most commonly found as Lavandula angustifolia (Bulgarian lavender), is an evergreen shrub that blooms elegant purple flowers with an extraordinary scent.
The lavender plant grows in dry and hardy conditions and as such, is excellent as an all-year-round plant for your garden or landscaping. Lavender is generally planted in the spring to flower in the summer and can grow up to three feet in height. The lavender plant can survive for ten years if well-tended.
The versatility of lavender makes it a favored ingredient to add to topical solutions. Products using lavender as an ingredient to neutralize the skin, control dryness, and plump-up the skin stretch across every step of a skin care routine from cleansers, to toners and serums, and finally, creams for the body and face.
The natural antimicrobial and antioxidant properties in lavender refresh and neutralize the skin, helping to clear bacteria and excess oil.
Lavender in your skincare products can help to equalize the skin’s pH balance. Lavender oil moisturizes and controls the oils in your skin. Your skin will be more supple and healthy-looking without dry or flaky patches.
The scent of the lavender plant is used in many nighttime skincare products to give a calming effect and to induce quality sleep. Throughout the years lavender has become famous for helping you to achieve a calm state and better sleep (by relaxing your body).
A great deal of sleep-promoting products use lavender as a base ingredient to promote that lavender helps to relax muscles, calm your nerves, and get started on a good night’s sleep.
