December 28 /2021

Getting to know the list of ingredients on your go-to beauty products can be quite the daunting task. Trust us, we’ve done the legwork. But babe, being aware of exactly what you’re putting on your skin is crucial. What’s more, it is a vital part of choosing which products are best suited for your cute face. It is no secret that we love using organic and natural ingredients in everything we create, and it is safe to say that we’ve gotten a little, well, *obsessed* with breaking down the benefits of these guys at any chance we get. In this one, we’re psyched to share 7 Beneficial Herbs for Your Skin that you’ll want to incorporate into your daily beauty routine, pronto.

Amazing in a latte, but even better on your skin: Peppermint.

If you’ve been riding with us for a while, you might have noticed how many of our ingredient lists contain this beneficial herb. Around here, we love sneaking peppermint into just about anything we can, and with good reason.

Many babes associate peppermint with its refreshing scent. But in reality, it is so much more than that. When it comes to dealing with acne, peppermint is the herb you want on your side. It is a natural antiseptic and works to cleanse the skin with its antibacterial properties. Meaning, it’s an ingredient that can prevent acne flareups before they even surface. Additionally, peppermint contains anti-inflammatory properties, so it is great for getting bumps and irritation to calm down. So much so in fact, that you might have heard of peppermint being used on bug bites as well!

Looking to add some peppermint goodness to your skincare routine?

We’ve got you, sis. As we mentioned above, there is no shortage of nourishing BBE products that contain the peppermint goodness you so deserve in your skincare routine.  

BBE’s oil control moisturizer is *oozing* with peppermint extract. For real! As soon as you apply this lightweight moisturizer, you’ll immediately feel and smell this refreshing herb. What’s more, this moisturizer is an acne-prone babe’s dream because it is formulated without any thick, pore-clogging oils. And if you’re not acne-prone? You’ll still love this formula as a go-to daytime moisturizer, or for layering underneath your makeup.

You don’t have to stop the peppermint party at your skin, babe. BBE’s peppermint lip balm is seriously nourishing, and just what dry & chapped lips need. Some products are formulated with drying ingredients, petroleum, soy, and fragrance that will leave your lips parched and anything but soft. Not this peppermint-infused gem, though. We only used organic butter and oils that will leave your pout seriously moisturized, smooth, and nourished.

The beneficial herb you’ve likely been using all along: Rosemary.  

Babe, you might be surprised to learn about how many of your beauty products contain this next ingredient on our list of 7 Beneficial Herbs for Your Skin. Rosemary is often used to reduce puffiness, heal burns, and deal with severely dry skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.

Moreover, rosemary does a stellar job of increasing circulation which means it can make your skin look dewy & glowing in a cinch. Whether you choose to apply this herb topically or to sneak it into some of your go-to products, you’ll want to benefit from this nourishing ingredient on the regular.

If you thought this next herb was just a weed, think again…

Forget associating dandelion with pulling weeds and ruining your garden. Instead, think of it as an anti-aging powerhouse that increases collagen production, improves hydration levels, and helps to increase cell production. We don’t know about you babe, but after that impressive list of benefits, we’re never calling dandelions a nuisance again.

Many babes opt to reap the benefits of dandelion by taking it as a supplement. However, you can also find skincare products that contain this mighty herb. It is packed with antioxidants which are crucial to protecting your skin against oxidative stress and cellular damage. Who would have thought this little yellow plant could be this beneficial, #amirite?

The beneficial herb that will help heal your skin: Comfrey.

This next gem on our list of 7 Beneficial Herbs for Your Skin is what we like to call a super healer. Comfrey is known for its ability to treat wounds and reduce inflammation, all while making skin healthier overall. Meaning, it is a star at reducing the appearance of scars and dark spots and can greatly help with those annoying breakouts.

They come in a pack of 6 and we're sure you will love them!

Want radiant, hydrated skin? Calendula is the herb for you.

From soothing and hydrating to promoting collagen production, the benefits of using calendula on your skin are numerous. Many babes turn to this ingredient to soothe the most serious of dry skin issues, sans irritation. This herb is known for being way gentle, yet way effective – and we can vouch!

Additionally, calendula contains a significant number of antioxidants. All of which play a vital role in preventing wrinkles and diminishing signs of aging. This is why you can find this herb in so many beauty products. And since it is so hydrating, you can even find this gem in some of your favorite lip balms.

The beneficial herb that is every babe’s best friend: Rose.

Calming, soothing, and loaded with antioxidants – this herb is way better used on your skin than it is in a vase. I mean, we love receiving a bouquet of roses as much as the next babe. But when you find out how beneficial rose is for your skin, you’ll totally get what we’re getting at here.

Firstly, we love using this ingredient because it can tackle multiple issues. When it comes to dry skin, rose is loaded with minerals and oils that can provide immediate relief. Additionally, for babes who struggle with acne, this herb also has significant astringent properties. Meaning, it is stellar at combatting breakouts, redness, and the inflammation that often comes along with acne-prone skin.

The product we reach for when we need a little rose in our lives…

Babe, it doesn’t get much better than spritzing a refreshing rose-infused toner onto your cute, cleansed face. BBE’s facial toner with witch hazel and rose petal water is the product your skincare routine has been missing, and the easiest way to get your daily dose of this beneficial herb. Not only does this product clear excess oil, but it’s also the perfect way to prevent breakouts and calm any irritation your skin may experience throughout the day.
