Dr Oz did a segment called Flower Power for Younger Looking Skin, because the secret to younger looking skin may be at your florist. Doctor Oz spoke about using Lavender for Dry Skin, Echinacea for Acne, Feverfew for Eczema and Psoriasis, and Rose Hips for Sun Damaged Skin.
Dr Oz: Lavender for Dry Skin
Dr Oz asked which flower helps to heal dry skin? And the answer is that Lavender helps with Dryness. As you age, your sebaceous glands make less oil, and the Lavender helps to hydrate your skin. You can find lavender in eye creams and body creams. Look for Lavender Oil on the Product Ingredient List.
Dr Oz: Echinacea for Acne
Dr Oz asked which flowering plant helps to heal blemishes? The answer is that Echinacea helps to get rid of acne. Many people think that Echinacea is a natural cold fighter, but this does not work so well. However, Native Americans used Echinacea to treat skin wounds and to get rid of inflammation. Look for Echinacea Toners and Echinacea Face Masks.
Dr Oz: Feverfew for Eczema & Psoriasis
Dr Oz asked which flower treats red, inflamed and irritated skin? The answer is that Feverfew helps with Eczema and Psoriasis. Feverfew was used in the middle ages and the name actually comes from words meaning to cast out fevers. Feverfew contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties to soothe your skin. Look for Feverfew or Chrysanthemum Parthenum on the Product Ingredient List.
Dr Oz: Rose Hip or Rose Canina for Sun Damaged Skin
Dr Oz asked which flower helps to reverse sun damaged skin? Roses actually help! After a rose blossom fades, you are left with Rose Hips and they are used to make Rose Hip Oil which is high in antioxidants and works well to protect your skin. You can find Rose Hip Facial Cream and Rose Hip Serums, but look for Rose Hip or Rosa Canina on the Product Ingredient List.
