Millions of people go to great lengths for perfectly smooth skin. But skincare products that contain chemicals or harsh ingredients can not only damage your skin, but they can also cause inflammation and irritation. There are numerous benefits found in natural ingredients, but have you heard about the ultra-nourishing properties of Chlorophyll for skin?
What is Chlorophyll?
Chlorophyll is the pigment in green plants that helps transfer light into energy during photosynthesis. Like all leafy green vegetables, it’s an excellent source of vitamins A, C, E, and K.
Chlorophyll does much more than make plants green. Its biological compounds can work wonders for the body, including headache prevention and weight management. As a topical skin treatment, chlorophyll can also refresh and reinvigorate all skin types. Using chlorophyll for skin problems can calm irritation, fade discoloration, and leave your skin looking brighter.
Benefits of Chlorophyll
1. Heals Wounds
Chlorophyll is the natural solution for burns, cuts, nicks, and inflammation. When applied to wounds, it helps prevent scarring and infections by killing germs. Its natural anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties help nourish and soothe skin.
2. Minimizes Wrinkles
Wrinkles are caused by sun damage and oxidation caused by free radicals. The antioxidants in chlorophyll help reduce free radical damage to make your skin look younger and healthier, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Chlorophyll is also a natural sunscreen that helps protect the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
3. Fades Blemishes
Chlorophyll for skin helps fade blemishes due to its antibacterial properties. As an antioxidant, it also removes toxins and cleanses the blood. Chlorophyll neutralizes pimples, fades redness, and reduces discoloration caused by other skin issues.
4. Natural Deodorant
This compound has a natural ability to conceal odors. As it seeps into the skin, it fights foul smells caused by acne-causing bacteria.
5. Contains Vitamins
Your body needs nutrients in order to repair your skin and keep it looking young. Chlorophyll contains vitamins A, C, E, and K to restore your skin’s natural glow. Chlorophyll is crammed with vitamins that rejuvenate and revitalize skin. Vitamin A encourages cell growth to replenish skin and maintain firmness, while vitamin C stimulates collagen production, which keeps skin plump and fills fine lines. The high antioxidant content in vitamin E helps fight free radical damage to prevent skin from looking tired and dull. Vitamin K heals bruises, wounds, and neutralizes dark spots and discoloration.
What is Floralux?
Our signature Floralux complex is a unique blend of chlorophyll, copper and powerful antioxidants. This powerhouse ingredient has a variety of benefits for the skin, improving the health and appearance of your skin from the inside out.
Helps Battle Breakouts
Chlorophyll has long been recognized as cleansing and calming to the skin, but we're the first to perfect it for soothing away breakouts. Floralux is designed to visibly reduce redness and hyperpigmentation associated with acne and breakouts, decrease P. Acnes (a bacteria thought to contribute to acne), fight free radicals and feed and defend cells with an alphabet of nutrients. When combined with plant-powered ingredients and gentle yet effective salicylic acid, Floralux has the power to help clear your breakouts and reveal a radiant glow!
Fights Signs of Aging
One of the main contributors of premature aging is free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable molecules that stabilize themselves by bonding to other atoms or molecules. For skin, this can cause oxidative stress and damage in the form of premature aging, pigmentation, and uneven skin tone. Our bodies naturally produce free radicals through your metabolism and the natural aging process, but external causes of free radicals include air pollution, tobacco smoke, UV rays and poor diet.
So how do you fight free radicals? Add antioxidants to your diet and skincare routine! Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and this is where Floralux comes in. Floralux is designed to fight free radicals, visibly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also battling breakouts, redness and hyperpigmentation.
