Winter is the perfect time to savor the scent, taste, and goodness of Sage.
Sage, a natural desert plant, is commonly used in cooking, for herbal remedies, and aromatherapy. But did you know that Sage carries some powerful skincare benefits as well? In fact, its benefits are absolutely crucial for your anti-aging regimen to keep your skin supple and glowing.
Firstly, Sage is high in Vitamin A, otherwise known as the “natural retinol”. Vitamin A, like a chemical retinol, stimulates cell regeneration, which is good for both acneic skin and those concerned with the signs of age. Routine cell renewal means your skin will stay youthful AND avoid getting clogged pores.
Sage is also high in Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant for your skin! Vitamin C helps combat free radicals that can cause damage to your cells, and at the end of the day will give you a gorgeous, vibrant glow.
Breakout-prone skin will benefit from the retinol-like qualities of Sage as well as its anti-bacterial properties. Sage helps to eliminate bacteria from the skin and control sebum production, which lessens the likelihood of an unruly pimple.
And, as if that weren’t enough, the anti-inflammatory properties of this sumptuous herb can help bring relief for symptoms of eczema and psoriasis, and improve the appearance of varicose veins and broken capillaries.
To get the full benefits of Sage in your day-to-day routine, it’s best to study some aromatherapy and topical techniques, but use caution; as with any herb, you’ll want to try it on a small area first. You can also try the benefits of Sage by using our Red Raspberry Day Serum, which contains Sage oil along with Red Raspberry Seed Oil and a hydrating blend of ingredients to keep your skin deeply protected from age and sun damage.
