Ashwagandha may not be the first ingredient that naturally springs to mind when you think of your skincare products but due to its health and skincare benefits, it is certainly an ingredient that we should be paying more attention to.
Ashwagandha, or Indian Ginseng as it is more commonly known, has been used in
Indian Medicine for hundreds of years and is often recognised as the Queen of
Ayurveda due to the wealth of health problems and ailments it has helped alleviate with its powerful properties . As an adaptogen, Ashwagandha (much like Reishi Mushroom, which you can read about in more detail here), helps the body to adapt to external factors such as stress, disease and other health complications. It is best known for its calming properties on both the body and mind, helping to provide some relief from the symptoms of insomnia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Fibromyalgia, Anxiety and even Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
So it is no surprise that these calming qualities can also aid the skin when used topically within your beauty routine as they help our bodies adapt to physiological elements that change the way our skin looks and feels.
The most noticeable benefit of Ashwagandha is that it is full of free-radical fighting
antioxidants that not only help to prevent premature aging but can also repair pre-
existing environmental damage such as uneven skin tone and pigmentation when used over a long period of time. Its antibacterial and calming properties also excel at
maintaining a clear complexion, soothing irritation and promoting skin healing. As
Ashwagandha is also effective at boosting circulation, it will also help eradicate a dull or lack-lustre complexion leaving you with skin which is positively glowing.
We personally love Ashwagandha’s intensely nourishing properties that helps to deeply moisturise dry skin and smooth and soften any rough or chapped areas on the body. This is the main reason why we included Ashwagandha in our Tangerine Dream Body Massage Oil as it is an amazing ingredient to boost skin health and give you the soft, smooth and glowing skin you’ve always dreamed of. Tangerine Dream Body Massage Oil is a complete sensory experience and provides you with a spa-like treatment at home, marrying the calming benefits of Ashwagandha with other skin loving ingredients to promote a sense of peace, serenity and wellbeing in your skincare routine.
