25 Apr Amazing Beauty Benefits of Vanilla + Recipe
MORE THAN FRAGRANCE
The health benefits of vanilla can be attributed to its properties as an antioxidant, aphrodisiac, anti-carcinogenic, antidepressant, sedative, tranquilizing and relaxing substance.
When we think of vanilla, eating cupcakes may come to mind, but vanilla is also stellar as a skincare ingredient.
Note: the extract we use in skincare is not the same as the traditional vanilla at your market. See my Vanilla Vinaigrette recipe below for an unexpected treat with traditional vanilla extract.
LITTLE KNOWN SKIN BENEFITS
Promotes Healthy Skin:
Vanilla is a good source of B-vitamins like niacin, thiamin, Vitamin B6 and pantothenic acid which play an important role in the maintenance of healthy skin. The antioxidant properties of vanilla protect your skin from damage caused by environmental pollutants and toxins.
Vanilla is rich in antioxidants which prevent and reverse skin damage caused by free radicals. It helps to slow down signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.
Treatment of Acne:
The antibacterial properties of vanilla make it beneficial for the treatment of acne. Vanillin, through its antibacterial effects, helps cleanse your skin, reducing the occurrence of breakouts.
Vanilla has been used as a traditional remedy to heal burns, wounds and cuts, so it’s a common sense ingredient in recovery skincare.
