Calendula oil properties
Did you know that calendula oil is useful for treating cases of acne and sensitive skin? Stay in this post and we'll tell you.
Calendula is much more than a decorative plant, it is a flower with great medicinal potential for the skin.
It comes from Central Europe, Western Asia and the United States, it is also characterized by its intense orange color and aroma. The oil is created by maceration in the base oil of its flowers, which allows extracting its properties that will be used in different cosmetic products.
1. It is a natural anti-inflammatory.
Due to its active ingredients, it reduces inflammation of the foot, therefore, it becomes a very useful product to treat sensitive and atopic skin that experiences swelling, either due to an allergic reaction or acne. Calendula is ideal to use to help in cases of eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, insect bites and diaper rash.
2. It has healing and antioxidant properties.
These properties help in the process of healing wounds and scars. In fact, calendula helps to calm the skin when it is red or irritated, for this reason, it is advisable to use cosmetic products with its oil after a waxing or exfoliation session.
3. It's moisturizing.
If what you want is to hydrate the skin, calendula is very good for you because it has fatty acids that prevent the cells of the dermis from losing water. This makes it beneficial for dry skin. Its moisturizing property helps prevent wrinkles, since the flower is rich in vitamin E, a component that nourishes the skin internally.
4. It has antiseptic and disinfectant properties.
And as if that weren't enough, these properties keep your skin clean and disinfected, especially helping to remove traces of makeup, making it a good alternative if makeup removers irritate your skin. It can even be a natural exfoliant if you mix it with lumpy products like salt or sugar.
