ashwagandha herb

It can sometimes feel difficult to achieve healthy and glowing skin, especially naturally. But there are natural herbs that have been used for centuries to help maintain your complexion and keep you looking radiant all year round. One such herb is Ashwagandha!

Whether you have oily skin, dry skin, combination skin, or another skin type, you can benefit from using Ashwagandha to promote healthy and glowing skin. The herb has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce redness and inflammation on the skin, which can help to treat even more severe cases of acne. Plus, the herb also helps to protect against environmental damage like UV rays and pollution, which can contribute to premature aging and wrinkles.

What is Ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha is an Indian herb used extensively in Ayurvedic medicine. It’s commonly available as a dried root, which is ground into a powder and added to food, drinks, or tablets. Used traditionally for improving strength and stamina, ashwagandha has recently been promoted as a supplement with anti-stress effects that apply to the skin as well as the body. Known for these excellent skincare benefits, Ashwagandha is used as a natural ingredient in botanical moisturizing soothing cream and other skincare products.

Properties of Ashwagandha

  • Ashwagandha is adaptogenic and protects your skin from cortisol, the stress hormone.
  • The anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties help them heal and improve acne.
  • Ashwagandha also has anti-aging properties that boost DHEA, which is a precursor to both testosterone and estrogen to help your skin look young and healthy. (DHEA and estrogen stimulate collagen generation and increase the natural skin oils, which provides a youthful look to your skin. It also lowers cortisol levels and prevents stress from aging the skin.)
  • It’s rich in bio-active principles such as withanolides, saponins, and alkaloids which deeply cleanse, moisturize and calm the skin.

How Does Ashwagandha Help Your Skin?

Some of the major skincare concerns of today are pigmentation, premature aging, skin cancer, acne, and more. Another primary concern is pollution – when your skin is exposed to air-borne pollutants, they get trapped in pores resulting in skin damage and oxidative stress to the skin. This leads to imbalanced skin pH.

Products that harness the power of Ashwagandha deeply moisturize without clogging pores! Best of all, it works well with all skin types: oily, dry, or combination. So, you can easily incorporate these products into your skin care routine for dry skin.
