The early signs of skin-ageing are a result of free radicals. Being a potent source of anti-oxidants, lavender oil protects the skin from the free radicals. It fights the free radical damage caused by environmental stressors and fights the signs of premature aging.
As the essential oil reduces inflammation, it also aids in lightening the skin. It can be of extreme help for hyper-pigmentation and discolouration.
How to apply?
The application process of the oil depends on the problem you are applying it for. Pure essential oils can never be applied directly on your skin as they are very potent and can cause severe irritation and burns on the skin. It is usually mixed with carrier oil.
