If you haven’t heard, echinacea is the latest ingredient to take the beauty world by storm. Commonly known as purple coneflower, echinacea is a botanical extract found in the eastern and central parts of North America. Below is a breakdown the main benefits of this best-kept beauty secret:
Helps Combat Wrinkles and Acne – Echinacea is rich in tannins, which helps protect the skin from oxidation (the cause of fine lines and wrinkles) and improve skin’s hydration. Additionally, acne creams that contain echinacea extracts help bring down the swelling of skin tissues and rid the skin of toxins.
Disinfects Wounds – Say goodbye to wounds. Echinacea also works as a topical disinfectant for cuts, bruises, or rashes as it can increase cellular regeneration. Similar to that effect, beauty products that contain echinacea can help protect the skin by supporting natural collagen and combatting uneven skin tone.
Hydrates Skin – Who knew a small flower could impact the skin so much? Echinacea is also known to be chock-full of nutrients like vitamin C, beta-carotene, selenium, and zinc. Whether you use a serum, moisturizer or eye cream infused with echinacea, your skin is sure to be hydrated after continued use.
