The royal poinciana tree in my garden is blooming. The gorgeous red flowers have added panache to the elegance of it. But honestly, it is not only about how beautiful my plants make my backyard look.
I’m somewhat more interested in knowing the beneficial properties that the plants come with. And knowledge is the key to the most powerful weapon. Don’t you think so? So, to know more about the benefits of plants follow along. In this article, I will be discussing the 5 best plants for your skin.
Aloe vera perhaps is the most common, easy to find, and beneficial plant not only for your skin but also for your health. It is known to work very well to remove wrinkles, and stretch marks. Alongside it helps with hyperpigmentation, restoring even skin tone. It increases blood circulation, which enhances the wound healing ability of the skin. Aloe vera also prevents cell death around the wound, which also helps in wound healing.
Winter is coming to an end. And with that, the extensive use of coriander in every recipe is also about to end. This is amongst those herbs we can never get enough of which. But its benefits are not only limited to make a dish look, smell and taste good. It also has several health benefits and is good for your skin as well. Mixing ground coriander seeds with any of your DIY masks will help to soothe your skin. Needless to say, coriander has anti-inflammatory properties present in it.
In a study, by a group of researchers from the Leeds Metropolitan University of the United Kingdom, it was found that thyme can help to heal acne caused by the Propionibacterium bacteria. It can also be used to cure stubborn acne scars. All you have to do is get a handful of thyme leaves and soak them in apple cider vinegar for around 2 weeks. Then simply strain the solutions to separate the leaves from the liquid, and voila! You have a magic solution prepared all by yourself to mask out all the pimple scars.
I love how the vibrant colours of the calendula flowers make my garden look. It’s like heaven made of vibrant colours and balsamic. But, as I said, I have always admired these plants more for their beneficial properties. Having a calendula plant is like having a short-term and long-term wellness plan for your skincare regime. In case you are frowning now and thinking, “how so?”, then here is the answer – calendula makes your skin plump and more supple, almost instantly. It makes your skin tighter, helping you to achieve more youthful skin. Whereas in the long-term, it helps to protect the elastin and collagen present in your skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is also rich in antioxidants.
Just tell me one thing about this particular plant to not love about it. Seems like everything has fallen into a saga, and was meant to be. I, personally, am a huge fan of lavender essential oil. But did you know that lavender also has amazing skin cleansing properties due to the antimicrobial properties present in it? Well, it is. And if you are still not using it to its fullest potential, then maybe this is the time you do.
