Echinacea: Benefits for Soothing Skin Sensitivities and Acne

Echinacea: Benefits for Soothing Skin Sensitivities and Acne

Regardless of skin type, we all suffer from sensitivities at some point. Sensitive skin can be naturally occuring or as a result of a skin condition such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, or irritation and sensitivity caused by intensive skincare products or harsh ingredients. Soothing sensitive and irritated skin shouldn’t require fuss and a lengthy period of discomfort. With the right products and the right ingredients you can rapidly soothe skin sensitivities...

Echinacea is a herbal ingredient  famed for its medicinal properties and has been used throughout history to soothe cold and flu symptoms and heal wounds. With a remarkable ability to soothe skin it’s the star ingredient of the NEW Bloomeffects Royal Tulip Nectar + Echinacea. 

As a skincare ingredient, Echinachea is antioxidant-rich and provides incredible skin benefits. Echinacea is proven to:

  • Boost collagen production
  • Provide hydration 
  • Brighten skin
  • Boost skins natural moisturizing factors
  • Protect the skins outer layer, helping to lock in moisture

Bloomeffects Royal Tulip Nectar is an innovative, award-winning “ointment-to-serum” formula. With a rich, honey-like consistency, this skin-quenching ointment transforms into a comforting skin serum once warmed and applied to the skin. With the addition of Echinacea, this Nectar provides the ultimate skin-soothing, revitalizing, and comforting experience. 

TOP TIP:

This soothing ointment is the perfect cold-season must have, working to comfort and protect the skin,  use it to help treat and heal chapped areas around the nose caused by tissue burn!

Echinacea for Acne

Echinacea is both an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory ingredient, and fantastic for the treatment of acne. Antimicrobial properties soothe skin of irritation and prevent the spread (and growth) of acne-causing bacteria.All too often, treatments for acne include harsh, drying ingredients which strip the skin of its natural oils. This can throw off the skin's pH balance and cause it to over-produce oil to compensate for excessive dehydration and dryness (often causing more acne in the long run!) Anti-inflammatory properties can assist in soothing inflammation (read: red, irritated pimples, and cystic acne). A  nourishing skin treatment which includes Echinacea (like the Bloomeffects Royal Tulip Nectar + Echinacea) can assist with soothing irritation whilst simultaneously treating (and preventing) acne. 

TOP TIP:

Use Bloomeffects Royal Tulip Nectar + Echinacea to soothe and comfort the skin after exfoliating (or using skincare with highly active ingredients such as retinol)

Echinacea for Sensitivities 

Sensitive skin conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis can cause extensive skin discomfort. Often prone to irritation, and incredibly temperamental, it’s important to choose specialized ingredients to comfort highly sensitive skin. Echinacea not only works to soothe sensitive skin, but it can also assist in protecting the skin from harsh elements (especially heating and cooling which can dry out the skin). In addition to Echinacea, Bloomeffects Royal Tulip Nectar + Echinacea also contains a healthy dose of Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally sourced humectant which works to draw moisture into the skin for lasting hydration and nourishment (vital for Eczema!) 

Bloomeffects Royal Tulip Nectar + Echinacea is rich in active ingredients including Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, peptides, and silk amino acids which work in harmony to prevent moisture loss and protect against free radicals, environmental stressors, and aging. Bloomeffects signature Proprietary Dutch Tulip Complex, a scientifically driven complex sourced from tulip bulbs further benefits the skin, working to soothe, nourish, repair, and protect.

How to use:

Always consult your doctor or dermatologist before beginning to use new products if you have extremely sensitive skin. 

Warm a small amount of Bloomeffects Royal Tulip Nectar + Echinacea between the fingertips and apply to freshly cleansed skin! For deeper nourishment, apply a thick layer and use it as a sleeping mask.
