Spring has officially given way to summer but the sights and smells of freshly bloomed flowers remain, accentuating the beauty of this exciting season. Although the aesthetic beauty of these marvels of nature seems to be the main draw, it’s the amazing power waiting to be unlocked within these flowers that reveals their true value.
Whether it’s roses, echinacea, or Madonna lilies, nature holds a veritable bouquet of beautiful flowers containing incredibly effective ingredients for improving the health of your skin. Not the least among them is a beautiful violet flower called the lilac.
For as many shapes and colors wildflowers may come in, there are seemingly an equal amount uses their essential ingredients have for treating various skin problems. When it comes to lilac, those ingredients are practically hand designed to treat acne of all kinds.
Acne Prevention and Recovery
First of all, lilac has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties to not only keep your skin clean but also actively aid in the healing process of inflammation or acne scarring caused by inflammatory lesions. The rapid calming effect that lilac has on skin is striking, as those who swear by its effectiveness have seen a major reduction of any and all acne inflammation in less than 30 days of use.
So lilac can prevent acne and treat the resulting skin damage acne causes, but what can it do to actively fight an active breakout?
As we have discussed in the past, acne is caused by in imbalance of the skin’s moisture. So, to put it simply, when your skin is too dry it overcompensates and saturates itself with too much natural oil which ends up clogging pores and causing breakouts.
Lilac has a direct answer to this issue as it has the ability to reduce transepidermal water loss, keeping your skin at the appropriate level of moisture. It locks in moisture so your skin can better naturally regulate how much natural oil it needs to function properly.
On top of all of this incredible acne-fighting ability, lilac is also a powerful antioxidant which means it bolsters your skin’s defensive functions. Having antioxidants around helps to stem the tide of free radical damage, keeping your skin plump and youthful.
Oh and have we mentioned it smells great? Because that’s important too.
Given all of the incredible capabilities that this incredible flower possesses, it was obvious to us that we needed to use it in our acne-busting ICE Line.
