Lavender is best known for its dreamy smell and its relaxing effect that leads to deep sleep. But, did you know lavender oil can also work wonders on your skin? Let’s explore some of lavender oil’s skin benefits.
Lavender Oil to Soothe Dry Skin and Eczema
If you are dealing with dry skin or eczema, lavender can work to soothe it thanks to its anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Slather Hygieia Night Cream on any dry or inflamed areas and let it go to work while you sleep. The perfect blend of organic antioxidant herbs and oils provide maximum rejuvenating properties to maintain healthy, beautiful skin while you sleep.
Lavender Oil to Fight Wrinkles
When used in a product like the Hygieia Anti-Aging Cream, lavender oil can help fight wrinkles and signs of aging. Free radicals play a big role in creating fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Lavender oil is packed with antioxidants that help protect your skin from said free radicals.
Lavender Oil to Fight Inflammation
You can also use lavender oil to fight inflammation. The oil’s pain-relieving and numbing effects can also soothe inflammation, while the beta-caryophyllene in the oil also acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. The lavender oil’s anti-inflammatory properties in the Hygieia Eye Cream can fight puffy eyes while rejuvenating the skin and diminishing the appearance of fine lines.
Lavender Oil to Fight Acne
As we mentioned, lavender oil works to kill bacteria. This can help prevent and heal acne breakouts by unclogging the pores and reducing inflammation when put on the skin. Dilute some pure lavender oil with coconut oil, and then apply it to the face after washing your face.
Lavender Oil for Skin Lightening
Did you know that lavender oil can also help in skin lightening? This is because it reduces inflammation, and it can also reduce discoloration, including dark spots. Lavender oil also works to lessen redness and blotchiness. If you are dealing with hyperpigmentation on the skin, products that contain lavender oil or pure lavender oil may do the trick.
Lavender Oil to Heal Wounds
The ancient Greeks used lavender oil to clean wounds, heal burns, and treat other skin injuries and wounds. This is because lavender has antiseptic properties that can also help the skin heal faster while fighting and preventing further infection.
If you have a burn, scrape, cut, or any other wound, lavender oil may help speed up the healing process. A 2016 study found that lavender oil promotes the healing of skin tissue. To use lavender oil on wounds, mix three to four drops of lavender oil together with a few drops of coconut oil and apply the mixture directly to your wound with a cotton ball. What’s more, when the wound heals, lavender oil can be used to reduce scarring.
As you can see, lavender oil has many benefits to heal skin and keep it looking youthful. That’s why so many Hygieia products contain the powerful natural substance. No matter what skin issue you’re looking to resolve, give some products that contain lavender oil a shot.
