Refresh Your Skincare Regime with Mint

When you think of mint, what comes to mind? In all likelihood, you’re probably thinking of toothpaste. Or chewing gum. Or you might be picturing the fresh, fragrant, bright green leaves of one of the most popular herbs in the world. Perhaps, you also use mint quite frequently in the kitchen, as an ingredient in all kinds of sweet and savory dishes.

But what if we told you that mint can be used in skincare, too, and with lots of beneficial effects?

Let’s take a closer look at how you can incorporate this wonderful ingredient into your skincare routine – keep reading our article.

The amazing properties of mint

Using mint-infused skincare products regularly can yield a range of benefits – below we have listed five of the most impressive properties that mint possesses. 

1. Rejuvenating

Applying mint to your skin can help promote better blood circulation, which in turn translates into smoother, healthier, and younger-looking skin. 

In parallel, mint also helps to nourish and hydrate the skin, delaying the formation and appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

2. Hydration and Replenishing

Mint is naturally hydrating, which means that your pores will tighten and your skin will look plumper as a result. If you have dry, itchy, or irritated skin, using mint can help to soothe and soften your complexion. 

In addition to this, mint is also considered a mild astringent and can be used as a skin toner to unclog your pores and eliminate dirt and grime.

3. Brightening

One of mint’s most celebrated properties is its refreshing effect. Applying mint to the skin enables you to enjoy deep relaxation while promoting a brighter, more glowing complexion.

4. Lightening

Because mint contains small amounts of salicylic acid, you can use it to banish acne and blemishes. This is because salicylic acid promotes the natural cell turnover, breaking down dead skin cells and making sure that the new ones that are produced are healthy.

5. Soothing

Have you been bitten by a mosquito? 

Try using mint-infused skincare products. Mint boasts anti-inflammatory properties which means it can help calm the irritation that is often caused by insect bites and other skin conditions.

Incorporating Mind into Your Skincare Regime

Let’s now take a look at three great ways to incorporate this wonderful, all-natural ingredient into your skincare regime.

  1. Regular skincare

To enjoy the goodness of mint every time you feel like you need a fresh, fragrant pick-me-up, nothing works better than Sabon’s Relaxing Lavender 2 in 1 Face Polisher. This is a luxurious cleanser and exfoliant enriched with natural mint crystals, and features an indulgent, creamy texture that you can treat yourself to every day.

As a scrub, this polisher instantly releases an invigorating cooling effect, while delicately exfoliating your skin without stripping it from its natural oils. Besides mint, our polisher also contains three wonderful ingredients: Rose of Jericho, Dead Sea minerals, and Rose Water.

  1. A touch of luxury for a loved one

This beautifully presented gift box is a treasure trove of our mint favorites: our Cleansing Oil, Floral Mask Gelée, and Face Polisher in energizing Mint scent.

Trust us, this is one gift that has the power to turn any frown upside down, thanks to the mood-boosting, refreshing, and soothing effects of mint.

  1. Alleviating sun burns

With summer just around the corner, now more than ever you need to ensure that you are always wearing your sunscreen, wherever you go. If you forget it, or if the amount you applied wasn’t enough, you might risk a sunburn.

Don’t rush to the nearest pharmacy straight away, though. Try an all-natural concoction of mint leaves and cucumber. Both ingredients have a naturally cooling effect on the skin, which is paired with mint’s anti-inflammatory properties and helps to ease any sunburn-related pain and promotes faster healing.
