Lavender Skincare: How To Use It In Your Skincare Routine

Share this post

Lavender is popular in aromatherapy because the fragrance from lavender oil is believed to promote calmness and wellness by reducing stress and anxiety… But, did you know that’s not all lavender can do? In India, lavender has been used for centuries to treat everything from headaches and insomnia to anxiety. Nowadays, it’s become a popular beauty ingredient. 

Lavender has many properties that make it a must-have in your beauty routine to get that glowing complexion you’ve always dreamed of. In fact, lavender’s soothing properties have been shown to fight wrinkles, acne, and dry skin! 

While native to the Mediterranean, Lavender grows all over the world. At Dilmaherbals, we source our lavender from the mountainous regions of Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir.

How is lavender essential oil made? 

Lavender essential oil is produced using a steam distillation process that extracts essential oils from various plants.

Put simply, the process of steam distillation for lavender involves heating up the plant matter, capturing essential oil vapour as it rises and cooling that mixture before letting it condense back into a liquid state. 

That’s all there is to it! Who says simple can’t be effective?

Lavender Helps Combat Acne

Acne breakouts can be a nightmare and fighting them can be a tough task. However, lavender is the perfect solution for your acne woes. 

Lavender is both antimicrobial and antibacterial, making it an ideal natural remedy for acne flare-ups and also preventing them from occurring! Often, acne sufferers worry moisturising will only make their skin greasier but hydration is actually key in healing blemishes. Lavender’s antibacterial properties mean you can heal from breakouts quickly and hydrate the skin deeply, all without leaving your skin oily.

Lavender Nourishes The Skin 

When choosing a moisturising cream, you want to make sure to choose one that is kind to your skin. Lavender is a powerful antioxidant that nourishes your skin and helps shield your skin from the elements. By using a beauty cream that includes lavender oil, you can rejuvenate your skin and leave it looking rested and refreshed.

Our Aahana Rich Moisturising Cream is specially formulated to provide your skin with intense moisture and protection. The lavender oil in our moisturising cream acts as a barrier for the delicate layers of skin beneath the surface layer. Our 97.59% natural ingredients help nourish your skin and protect it from environmental stressors all at the same time!  

Lavender is an Anti-Inflammatory 

Lavender is not just good for your mental wellbeing, it can also have a soothing effect on the skin! Many people who suffer from skin issues like psoriasis and eczema find lavender oil can provide relief thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. Many people who use lavender oil in this way report a reduction in itchiness and soreness in their skin, making it easier to go about their day without pain and irritation. 

The anti-inflammatory properties are because lavender is rich in beta-caryophyllene which can be found within the essential oils.

It’s no secret that lavender can work wonders in helping to promote calmness and relaxation but lavender is often overlooked when it comes to skincare. The soothing effects of this beautiful flower can be combined with all its other benefits in one beauty cream. The result? You look AND feel better!

Take our Aahana Light Moisturising Cream, for example. This light moisturising cream has a fast-absorbing, deeply penetrating formula that leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. It also has the added bonus of including all the amazing benefits lavender oil can provide!
