Botanical Ingredients To Look Out For…
When it comes to choosing botanical makeup, where do you begin? There are lots of phrases and ingredients you should look out for that help to enrich your skin and give your complexion a gorgeous, dewy finish.
- Hyaluronic Acid – This super hydrating ingredient holds 1000 x its own weight in water, making it an essential compound to look for if you have dry or dehydrated skin. As makeup can dry out your complexion, opting for products which contain Hyaluronic Acid can counteract this and make sure it stays well moisturised. The Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation is the perfect base for dehydrated skin types as it contains Hyaluronic Acid to keep the skin glowing.
- Green Tea – Packed full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, Green Tea helps to shield your skin against environmental aggressors. Look out for lipsticks and lip products which contain this ingredient as the skin on your lips is incredibly thin, and needs an extra boost of protection. Chantecaille’s Brilliant Lip Gloss is super hydrating thanks to its unique jelly system, while the blend of Green Tea helps to keep the lips nourished.
- Grape Seed Extract – This super nourishing ingredient is found in a lot of skincare products, but is now making its way into makeup. It helps to keep the skin looking smooth and the complexion glowing, making it perfect to use if your skin has been looking a little dull lately. Try Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour Creme Rouge Blusher, which has a blend of vitamins and Grape Seed Extract to condition the skin and make your complexion appear super smooth.
- Rosehip Extract – This antioxidant powerhouse is a great all-round ingredient to use no matter your skin type. Its packed full of Vitamin C so helps to keep your complexion energised and radiant. Try the Trifle Cosmetics Sponge Bronzer, which not only contains Rosehip, but a blend of Goji Berry and Aloe Vera too, to nourish and protect the skin.
