Licorice root comes from a flowering plant called Glycyrrhiza glabra that grows in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. It has been used as a medicinal herb for thousands of years.. Licorice root has a number of skincare and hair care benefits.
#1: Helps hyperpigmentation
Improving hyperpigmentation is one of this plant’s most well known attributes. Hyperpigmentation occurs when your skin produces more melanin in certain patches or spots than in others, giving skin an uneven tone and darkened appearance.
#2: Carries glycyrrhizin, a powerful antioxidant
Licorice does well in treating atopic dermatitis, rosacea, and psoriasis – due to the presence of glycyrrhizin (glys-err-eye-zin), an anti-inflammatory property. As an antioxidant, it protects our skin against free radicals. Some of the most obvious signs of free radical damage show up on our epidermis, and sun damage is one of the most prevalent stressors in daily life. This is why it’s so important to protect yourself from UV rays with a clean, cruelty-free sunscreen!
3. Contains glabridin, a UV-fighting super ingredient
Glabridin (glab-rye-din) is one of the most active ingredients in licorice root extract. This substance helps diminish any dark spots you have from scarring or sun damage. It also prevents pigmentation from UVB rays by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme that causes dark pigments after sun exposure.
1. It’s anti-inflammatory.
Inflammation can cause so many frustrating skin issues. Inflammation of the skin causes many skin problems such as breakouts, rosacea, eczema, sensitivity, even a breakdown of collagen. All these inflammatory skin conditions can benefit from calendula’s soothing effects. The anti-inflammatory properties are thanks to calendula flower’s potent dose of flavonoid, saponins, and triterpenoids. These give calendula the ability to prevent your body’s release of histamines which can cause redness, pain, allergies, and inflammation. And when it comes to treating breakouts, calendula’s gentle nature means it won’t dry your skin out and it’s safe to use with other acne-fighting ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
2. Wonderful Moisturizing Effect
You’ve probably heard about the health benefits of a diet rich in essential fatty acids. Well, those same essential fatty acids, like the linoleic acid in calendula oil or extract, can also nourish your skin. They give your skin cells the ability to absorb nutrients and hold onto water longer—great news for those with perpetually dry skin. Products formulated with calendula tend to cause the skin to look smoother, more supple, and more nourished skin.
