Have you ever met Centella Asiatica named “Cica”??? It is an antioxidant-rich herb that can do wonders for dry, itchy, red, and sensitive skin, thanks to its natural anti-inflammatory properties. It can also boost the microcirculation of the skin and allow for more nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and oxygen to be delivered to the skin. Additionally, it can repair skin damage, stimulate cell metabolism, and help generate more youthful-looking skin.
When taken internally, cica’s high antioxidant content protects neurons from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. But, when applied topically it can do magic:
- It can promote the collagen production and improve the skin firmness and elasticity, and soothe minor itching
- It can improve the skin’s hydration and reduce the moisture loss
- It can speed up the wound healing and decrease the skin's inflammation
Other than these cica acts as an effective anti-ager. Cica extract is high in skin-benefitting phytochemicals such as vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B1, and B2, niacin, and carotene, which when combined together can brighten the skin and fight the premature aging. It also has a remarkable level of natural antioxidants, which again improve that this herb is a super anti-ager. It produces the type 1 collagen, which is responsible for the skin to stay plump and youthful. Cica’s ability to boost collagen level also has proved the plant to be useful in treating cellulite. Thus, it is an even better ingredient for acne-prone skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties can fight against skin inflammation and work amazingly on fading out the acne and breakouts. It is the best natural ingredient that fights inflammation and scarring caused by acne.
The bottom line is that this plant is really good for the skin, especially for the skin that does feel dry, and skin that suffers from breakouts and irritation. With its constant use, the skin will only look and feel better than ever.
