Flowers and their extracts have been documented in beauty routines from ancient times. From grandma’s secret face packs to palacial skin routines of Mughalai Queens flowers have been intimately associated with Indian skincare. Along with natural flavours and perfumes flowers bring with them promising skin modifying properties.
Here are the most popular flowers in skincare products:
Rose hydrates the skin and nourishes it. It absorbs excess skin sebum and is a boon for oily to combination skin types. Rose water also has natural astringent properties that help close up pores in skin and prevent acne outbursts. Rosewater has always worked wonders on dark circles as well.
Lavender is historically known for its antibacterial properties on the skin. Laver extract is also noncomedogenic and best suited for acne prone and sensitive skin as it does not clog any pores. Lavender goes well with essential oils and has been used in skincare since forever.
Lotus is a long kept Indian skin care secret. It helps balance oil production in the skin and is best suited for oily skin. Lotus flower and root extracts are rich in antioxidants and flavonoids and thus used for their antiageing properties.
Hibiscus is an excellent skin cleanser. The AHAs present in the extract helps cleans the pores, remove and read skin and act as a natural exfoliator. This also promotes cell turnover and keeps the skin youthful and radiant. In addition this helps prevent acne breakout
Deyga Organics has revolutionised Indian natural skincare by fusing age old natural skin and hair recipes with evidence based research. Every product is handmade by a blend of natural ingredients and is sustainable and cruelty free.Purity is their Moto. Each product goes through scrutiny from beginning to packaging to ensure it is in the purest and natural form.
My top favourite flower based skincare products from Deyga Organics is their Jasmine facial Toner and Multi Flower Glow mask.
Multi Flower Glow Mask
It is a harmonious blend of flower extracts of Lotus, rose, lavender and hibiscus with vegetable glycerin and Guar Gum. It promises to prevent appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and leaves one with a youthful and radiant looking skin.
How to use ?
Cleanse the skin with any gentle and natural cleanser. Apply a sufficient layer of the multi flowe mask on the skin and rest for 30 minutes. Wash off with cold water and dab the skin to dry with a soft face cloth. Repeat twice a week for four weeks to see best results.
My personal with the facepack is that it is an excellent skin hydrant and perfect for the summer weather when the skin is thirsty and neglected of moisture. It helped control the excess oil in my skin and left it with a warm glow. The fragrance of the facepack leaves you feeling truly rejuvenated.
Jasmine Facial Toner
This toner made from steam distilled jasmine water is another commendable product for skin moisture rejuvenation. The intense strain of jasmine water replenishes the skin with a load of moisture and leave it feeling fresh and supple.
How to apply?
Though the text book way would be to spray some toner onto cotton and dab it on your face I love spraying it on my skin directly as it leaves me feeling fresh
I have used the toner to dilute face packs as well. The fragrance of jasmine is not overpowering. I prefer to refrigerate the toner a few minutes before spraying it on for extra effect.
