When it comes to trying out something new in your beauty routine, what better place to look than across the waters for inspiration?
Some of the best skincare ingredients come from a multitude of continents, and this summer, we are on a beauty adventure to discover our favourites to keep our complexions beautiful.
Global Beauty Ingredients for your Skincare Regime
South America – Buriti Oil
A favourite amongst Brazilian women, Buriti Oil contains a blend of Vitamins C and E, to brighten, hydrate and protect the skin against environmental aggressors. Plus, as its rich in essential fatty acids, it keeps the skin incredibly hydrated.
We love Pai’s Head to Toe Hero Buriti Balm, which contains a conditioning blend of oils, including Buriti to hydrate the skin. You can use it on your body, lips, hands and any dry areas. It leaves a delicate scent of vanilla behind too.
Africa, Baobab Oil
Baobab has long been a hero ingredient in the African diet, but it’s only recently that brands have started recognising its skincare benefits.
bareMinerals’s newest skincare venture includes the Externalixir Skin Volumising Oil Serum, which contains Baobab Seed Oil and Plantain Leaf Extract to add radiance into the skin and plump up the complexion.
Asia, Mulberry Extract
Mulberry Extract contains a powerful blend of antioxidants to help keep the skin looking youthful and glowing. As it’s such a potent ingredient, it’s used in a lot of anti-ageing products and brightening products.
The Alpha-H Liquid Laser Cleansing Oil contains White Mulberry to brighten the skin and Hibiscus to soothe and protect. The cleanser is brilliant for helping to combat lacklustre and dulling complexions, as well as protecting more mature skin types.
Europe, Peony Extract
Peony Extract has incredible regenerative properties, which helps to calm down skin inflammation, whilst also firming and toning the skin.
Decléor’s Orexellence Energy Concentrate Youth Cream is brilliant at smoothing the skin and softening any dry or dehydrated areas. It contains a blend of Peony and Lychee Extracts, which also help to boost the skin’s radiance.
Australia, Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree Oil is a potent antiseptic ingredient, found in Australia. It helps to fight blemishes, clear infection and leave your skin clean and healthy. As it’s incredibly purifying, it’s brilliant to use if you have a spot outbreak. Visit our guide to the benefits of tea tree oil for hair.
Jurlique is an Australian skincare brand, and their Blemish Cream contains Tea Tree Oil to cleanse, and Calendula to soothe any redness. It’s brilliant at helping to reduce any blemishes that pop up overnight.
