Liquorice isn’t only a tasty treat for your sweet tooth, but it can be very beneficial for your skin, helping to replenish, add radiance and glow. Liquorice extract has been scientifically proven to get skin looking healthy and clear, becoming a key ingredient in many skincare products, which is why we’ve included it within our Vitamin C Miracle Mask.
The root of the matter
The source of all liquorice’s goodness is in the root of the plant, Glycyrrhiza glabra meaning ‘sweet root’ in Greek. It’s used as an ingredient in many over-the-counter skincare products, ranging from cleansers and face creams to spot treatments. The liquid from the root contains plant sterols, which helps skin elasticity, fights inflammation and the sign of wrinkles.
Keeping skincare sweet
It’s been proven liquorice extract helps with evening out skin tones, fading dark spots, preventing skin issues, helping to heal troubled and irritated skin, as well as treating skin disorders such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.
The extract is an anti-inflammatory which helps the skin to eliminate infection and irritants from the body, which can appear as swelling, redness, itching and rashes on the skin. With concentrations as low as 1 to 2 percent, liquorice can target these areas effectively.
Antioxidants in liquorice extract can also monitor the skin’s oil production, making it a crucial component in acne skincare creams, as skin outbreaks tend to be caused by pores being clogged by oil glands.
Our Vitamin C Miracle Mask is made with the perfect combination of Vitamin C and liquorice, giving your skin a quick fix for brightening and adding some radiance. It helps to provide an overnight glow boost by combining the power of Vitamin C with liquorice to help enhance skin radiance. Hyaluronic Acid & Shea are also included to help provide intense hydration. Meanwhile, Papaya Extract is rich in Omega 6 and 9 essential fatty acids, as well as Vitamin A, C and K.
The use of liquorice within our Vitamin C Miracle Mask means it creates a healthy formula to help nourish skin overnight, for a more radiant complexion by the morning.
