Ingredient Spotlight: Ginger

This pungent root has formed a reputation for being a healing plant. It is very likely that you have heard of many go-to home remedies using ginger to treat common colds and stomach aches due to its accessibility and familiarity. 

Likewise in skincare, ginger is known to be a ‘rejuvenator’ with countless beauty benefits. 

Some of its main benefits include anti-aging, scar reducing and numerous anti-oxidant properties. Ginger also helps to even skin tone and improve the skin’s elasticity. 

Because of its toning and antioxidant properties, ginger has the ability to work its magic and normalise hyperpigmented scars while keeping the skin soft and evenly toned.

Lipid Peroxidation is the oxidation of oils on our skin, and is the main reason for ageing caused by UV damage. Lipid peroxidation can lead to congestion, blackheads, wrinkles and dehydrated skin. 

Adding ginger to our skincare routine can protect our skin's lipid barrier and potentially prevent lipid peroxidation. 

Similarly, the Youth Beam night serum with ginger root extract is able to reduce the appearance of scars, lighten pigmentation and slow down collagen breakdown.
