How can Ginkgo Biloba help my skin?
Containing anti-inflammatory properties, Ginkgo Biloba helps to reduce the area of swelling, easing redness and the pressure caused. Skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema can be calmed and soothed with this ingredient, and used regularly, can slow down the rate at which these conditions occur.
Anti-Ageing & Antioxidant Rich
Substances such as polyphenols and flavonoids which are found within Ginkgo Biloba help to reduce the damage caused by free radicals. It also helps to prevent further oxidative damage from occurring in the skin, and it is this which can speed up the ageing process. With these antioxidant compounds present, the skin will begin to look younger and healthier, with the signs of ageing reduced and fine lines and wrinkles fading.
Evening Out Hyper-Pigmentation
Helping to soften the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, Ginkgo Biloba does this by balancing out the skin’s melanin content. Areas of a higher concentration will be lowered, creating an even complexion and will be beneficial for those suffering with skin conditions such as Vitiligo.
With natural anti-bacterial properties, Ginkgo Biloba is an excellent ingredient for combating breakouts and skin conditions such as acne. Keeping the surface of the skin free from bacteria, skin will look brighter with an even texture and will heal and grow new cells much more efficiently.
Boosting collagen production, Ginkgo Biloba stimulates the fibroblasts found within the skin, which in-turn causes an increase in the production of collagen, helping skin to preserve its firmness and elasticity.
