Aloe & Willow – A Match Made in Heaven
There are certain skincare ingredients that can do so much to pamper your skin. Overall, you want healthy skin that glows with radiant beauty; that includes having an even tone, smooth texture, and balanced hydration. Easier said than done, right? This is especially true if you have sensitive skin.
With the right skincare regimen, you can have that and even solve some skincare concerns, like sensitivity. There are many skincare ingredients that we absolutely love at FloraKatherine Skincare, but two in particular have caught our attention. They are aloe vera leaf juice and white willow bark. If you aren’t familiar with this dynamic duo and what they can do for your skincare regime, you’re in for a treat! Let’s explore the many benefits of aloe vera and willow bark and why we use them in so many of our skincare products, because we just love them!
Aloe Vera Leaf Juice and White Willow Bark– Star Ingredients in our Calm Facial Serum
One of our cornerstone products at FloraKatherine Skincare is our Calm facial serum. This product not only contains soothing aloe vera leaf juice and white willow bark, which has natural anti-inflammatory effects, but you will find that with continued use, your skin feels pampered and nourished to the core. Fortify your skin against the daily elements that strive to damage it, making it more sensitive, by using Calm. For best results, use at night, after thoroughly cleansing your skin with our facial cleanser, applying to both face and décolleté.
The Benefits of Aloe Vera
Aloe vera has been used for centuries in skincare, specifically due to the fact that it contains two skinhealing hormones, Auxin and Gibberellins, both displaying properties that can reduce skin inflammation. Topically, people have always used aloe vera to heal and treat wounds. Your grandmother may have grown it in her garden and you remember her putting it on scrapes and burns. Those properties haven’t changed. The soothing properties of aloe vera, when used in skincare, can truly help sensitive skin feel less irritated and reduce the appearance of redness. Overall, when you utilize aloe vera on a regular basis, you will find that your skin texture is well-balanced and has the ability to retain moisture like never before. Moisturizing, hydrating and soothing are three of the main reasons we love aloe vera in our skincare products.
Why White Willow Bark is a Natural Choice
White willow bark, if you’re not familiar with this ingredient, is harvested from the bark of the white willow tree. The benefits are numerous when added to skincare, but we love it because it acts as a natural anti-inflammatory, soothing the skin through bouts of sensitivity. Willow bark is also known to balance moisture in the skin and act as a natural exfoliant. You’ll find that once you incorporate white willow bark into your skincare routine, the texture of your skin is smooth and silky soft.
A Powerful Duo
Aloe vera and white willow bark work so well in tandem together because they are a powerhouse of calming ingredients, making the after effect soothed and nourished skin. When you add our Calm facial serum to your skincare regime, you will see for yourself why we are so in love with them!
