An aloe vera-infused serum that makes our complexion extra luminous? Got it. A rose body oil that encourages a healthy glow? Done. An exfoliating scrub that combines jasmine flower and amethyst gemstone? Found. Cue flower-derived beauty products that promise to be mainstays in your beauty routines.
As it turns out, flower extracts come with a slew of skincare benefits. We’re talking restored radiance, fighting off environmental skin aggressors, and even controlling sebum production. We’ll definitely bite.
But all that inside scoop doesn’t do us much good if we aren’t aware of the best ways to champion these botanical powers. Ahead, the beauty brands that are capitalising on this flower craze.
Their lightweight floral scents may draw you in, but its antioxidant and hydrating properties should be the reason you add these to your cart.
