Botanical beauty has been in use for thousands of years. The term refers to beauty products, especially skincare, that are plant-based and use the properties of oils, flowers and herbs to improve the appearance of the skin.

Not only does this fragrant flower have a calming scent, but it also has antiseptic and healing properties, making it the perfect ingredient to restore damaged skin. This luxurious face oil from Rodin contains Bulgarian lavender stems and flowers for a truly unique blend that is designed to relax both the mind and body. It provides a beauty pampering experience that will enhance your complexion and soothe away your worries.
Rosewater and rose oil have been used as a beauty aid in places like the Middle East for centuries as it brightens the complexion, making your skin “bloom”. Rosewater is also slightly astringent, making it perfect for toners to clear pores and prevent pimples. This Pure Rosewater by Chantecaille is a spray that promises to freshen skin using the Queen of Flowers.
This exotic fruit is no longer just for eating – it’s also used in high-end beauty products. The oils and acids found in the seeds help to prevent signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, strengthening and rejuvenating the outer layer of your skin. Try this hydrating moisturiser from Korres for a piece of the goodness.
The humble tomato may seem like an odd choice for a beauty ingredient, but it is actually brilliant for cooling and brightening troubled or dull skin. But before you plant yourself face first in a salad, try this face mask from all-natural brand Yes To.
