with that in mind, here are some recommendations from our side which can do wonders on your skin!

(However, before using oils or extracts, be careful to adequately dilute them because applying them directly in their most concentrated form might be harmful.)

Coconut Oil 

Coconut oil is widely used and well known for its ability to hydrate; its effectiveness is comparable to that of mineral oil.

Argan Oil

Argan oil is mostly recognised for its ability to moisturise hair, but it is also great for your skin. It keeps it moist and supple.

Almond Kernel Extract

We've known for a long time that almonds’ high vitamin E concentration is beneficial for your skin. Recently, almond kernel extract was discovered to be effective in treating eczema and acne, according to Cosmetics, a publication devoted to publishing skin research.

Aloe Vera Extract

Nobody is aware of Psoriasis and its origin, and treating it is extremely challenging. In order to determine if aloe vera extract may effectively cure psoriasis, a 12-month study was done by the European Journal of Tropical Medicine and International Health. When the topical cream was used, 83 percent of the people saw healing.

Spanish Chestnut Extract

let’s be honest. After years of enjoying yourself in the sun, it's not unlikely that you have skin damage beneath the surface. Fortunately, it has been demonstrated that castanea sativa extract, often known as chestnut extract, can alleviate symptoms of early ageing brought on by sun exposure.

Blueberry Extract 

it contains natural ingredients that provide the skin with antioxidants and soothing effects.

Date Palm Extract

the anti-aging capabilities of date palm extract were examined in a study published in the International Journal of Tissue Reactions. Researchers came to the conclusion that it was successful in lowering wrinkles. 60 percent of the people saw visual improvement.

Pomegranate Extract

Could plants really replace SPF in the future? Pomegranate extract is determined to be an effective UVA and UVB radiation protector by the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, while further long-term research is likely required.

Coffeeberry Extract

Coffeeberry extract, which is derived from the full fruit of Coffea arabica trees rather than the actual coffee beans, has been linked to improved rosacea and the control of hyperpigmentation. Additionally, it's one of the most potent antioxidants in skin care right now, according to Leslie Baumann, professor and director of cosmetic dermatology at the University of Miami.

Chamomile Extract

do you have red or irritated skin? Look for extract of german chamomile. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it was discovered to lessen redness and irritations in addition to having favourable benefits on curing wounds.

we hope you like our recommendations!
happy skincare, folks! live aastey!
