BEAUTY: NATURAL INGREDIENTS TO KNOW

Meet the best of nature’s own skincare powerhouses

Words by Christina Ko

Cleaning up your beauty routine? In the world of beauty today, “natural” can take on many meanings. One thing’s for sure: to know the right ingredients is to have gorgeous, glowing skin, from inside out. We round up mother nature’s most hard-working complexion protectors.

Centella Asiatica

A soothing agent that is extremely popular in K-beauty, centella asiatica is a herb found mainly in Asia that soothes distressed skin. Filled with antioxidants and amino acids, it helps reverse damage and is particularly gentle. Little-known fact: Often marketed as cica, it was used in products for years before becoming a household skincare ingredient.

24K Gold

It seems a little too obvious that gold could really deliver a golden glow, but that’s exactly one of its chief benefits. Besides adding radiance courtesy of light-reflecting properties, it’s also anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory – not to mention being extra indulgent to apply.

Berries

If your skin is due for a good detox, berries which contain polyphenols which are known for their potent antioxidant abilities. Different varieties will have different effects: blueberries prevent ageing and repair damage; cranberries are a natural source of beta-hydroxy acid; pomegranates – technically leather-skinned berries – boost collagen production.

Sakura

The cherry blossom is revered as a special flower, and it’s not just because of its beauty in bloom. Sakura petals contain fatty acids that can help smooth skin, while the extract fights collagen loss as well as working miracles on hyperpigmentation by inhibiting melanin production.

Clarifying and healing, honey supports the skin’s natural barrier, helping to fight off harmful internal or external distressors. Because it’s so gentle, it’s suitable for even the most sensitive skin, including eczema or rosacea sufferers.
