spotlight on: mint

Mint or Pudina is a common #ingredient used to flavor dishes all around the world. It is also a common ingredient in cosmetic products thanks to the excellent #skin care #benefits that it offers. It is often found in #moisturizers, #cleansers, conditioners, lip balms, and even shampoos. These products usually claim to have a “cooling effect” on your skin, but mint offers a myriad of other benefits when it comes to skin care.

Mint is an abundant source of #menthol and has strong #antibacterial properties. It is often used in cleansers, astringents, toners, and moisturizers. You can find mint extract in our upcoming collection of eye care serums and dedicated treatments.

At \tim-les\ we make our own #botanical #extracts. mint is one of the ones we carefully make and put in our products.

Here's why:

  • Mint has an extremely #refreshing and #soothing effect on your skin. When applied to the skin, it allows it to relax while acting on any #blemishes that might be present. This leaves your skin looking bright and refreshed.

  • Mint has strong #antibacterial properties and contains #salicylic acid – both of which effectively prevent acne. It also contains #vitamin A, which controls the secretion of oil in people who have oily and #acne-prone skin. The application of this ingredient dries up and eliminates acne while cleaning your #pores.

  • Mint is a mild astringent that can be used to tone your skin. The ingredient removes dirt and grime from your pores and refines them to leave you with smoother, softer, and well-hydrated skin.

  • The topical application of mint can boost blood circulation, ensuring that your skin is well nourished. This rejuvenates your skin and keeps it healthy. The ingredient is also rich in #antioxidants that keep your skin healthy and damage-free.

  • As mint boosts the circulation of blood to your skin and hydrates it, it also delays the formation of #wrinkles and fine lines.
