Flax seeds are packed with benefits. They contain a high content of vitamin e, omega 3 fatty acids, proteins, and have an anti-inflammatory effect.
These properties make flax seed gel great for:
- flared acne
- calming irritations
- hydrating dry skin
- repairing damaged/scarred skin
- moisturizing dry hair, and even boosting hair growth.
Calming lavender and peppermint together gently cleanse, reducing bacteria while providing hydration. These botanicals soothe irritation and redness from rashes to breakouts, even dry itchy scalps. The astringent properties within peppermint tone and balance skin’s pH level. The menthol brightens skin with a cooling affect. The high content of antioxidants in lavender protect from damage and even detoxes harmful elements from skin or hair. Both tighten skin, improving blood circulation creating a suppler appearance as well as stimulate hair growth.
Uplifting geranium and lemongrass combined create an acne-fighting and oil-balancing duo. With stronger cleansing properties than the former, this combo is in favor of oilier skin or hair types, but still not drying. The detoxing and toning properties help unclog as well as minimize the appearance of pores. The anti-aging properties reduces the signs of premature aging. Together they improve the appearance of hair, making it shinier and stronger.
