Rosemary (or Rosmarinus officinalis) is an exceedingly aromatic, evergreen herb that is found in the Asian and Mediterranean regions. But other than the cooking applications, it’s the rosemary essential oil extracted from the leaves that it is widely known for, and the extracted oil has many wonderful benefits for your skin.
Look younger and fresh
Using rosemary for your skin works like magic and reverses fine lines and age spots that have started to appear on you as you age. It also makes your skin feel smooth and fresh, giving off that fine silky feeling on your skin.
Heals sun damage
High in vitamin A, using rosemary for your face will help heal any damage the unforgiving sun rays might have caused your skin. Rosemary not only reduces the activity of skin-damaging enzymes, it helps get rid of any coloring and tanning caused by over exposure from the sun.
A natural skin cleanser
Rosemary is effective in releasing skin or pore clogging. It effectively removes germs, dead skin cells, and other impurities that clog the skin and dull its appearance. Rosemary also aids in removal of white heads, black heads and other problems that affect the outer layers of the skin.
It helps reduce acne
Acne can affect anyone at any age. That’s where rosemary’s antiseptic, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties effectively resolves acne problems.
It fights skin infections
Since we already know that rosemary have anti-microbial and anti-septic properties, not only is it effective against acne but it is also effective in eliminating germs and bacteria that causes skin infections and breakouts. Furthermore, it works as an anti-inflammatory agent that minimizes redness and swelling around the area of infection.
Minimizes skin redness
Rosemary wonderfully soothes the skin and minimizes inflammation and puffiness as well. Not only does it affect the skin but with regular application it helps improve blood circulation which can greatly improve your skin tone or color. This also makes it very effective in treating wounds and mending scars as well as speeding up the healing process, especially when you are currently suffering from skin infections. The properties also help to minimize fluid retention and bags under your eyes.
Makes skin tighter
Rosemary also has natural astringent properties that causes skin pores to reduce in size. As a result, when you use rosemary, your skin appears firm and extended. Rosemary also removes excessive oil, leaving your skin dry and clean.
