Benefits of daisy flower extract for skin:
Shine bright like a daisy
Daisy flower extract is a non-toxic substitute for hydroquinone. Though we have plenty of beauty products on the market not all of them are healthy for the skin. So, daisy extract is that healthier alternative that will help you brighten your skin. Stay bright like a daisy as the daisy extract helps in reducing the appearance of dark spots and thus lightens and brightens your skin naturally. Also, if a person can’t tolerate hydroquinone, kojic acid or is pregnant, then daisy extracts are the safest option.
Prevents pigmentation and discoloration
Stepping out on sunny days can lead to skin problems. Your chances of pigmentation and discoloration increase if you’re doing it without sunscreen. Harmful UV rays trigger the production of melanocytes (melanin-producing cells). So, extreme exposure can induce the overproduction of melanin. So, here comes a daisy extract for your protection. Daisy extracts can block the formation of melanin and prevents pigmentation or discoloration.
Maintain youthful skin
Frequent exposure to harmful sun rays can damage the collagen fibers and scar tissue buildup. Also, it interferes with the creation of new collagen, crucial for healthy supple skin. Daisy extracts can prevent wrinkling and sag, thus keeping the skin youthful. Add the daisy extract to your skincare routine for young healthy skin.
The antiseptic properties of daisy flower extract can remove bacteria from your skin surface, keeping it healthy. Also, daisy flower extracts were used for treating wounded soldiers in ancient times because of their anti-bacterial properties. So, the extract also helps in healing the skin.
Enhances skin cell turnover
Skin cell turnover involves the production of new skin cells replacing the existing skin cells. So, exfoliating the right way helps us in getting rid of dead skin cells. The high concentration of exfoliating acids, malic and tartaric acids in the daisy flower extract aid in natural cell turnover. Enhance the skin cell turnover naturally with the daisy extracts and feel the difference. The daisy extract’s ability will help you deal with acne and skin aging issues.
