I asked Kana to share her top three herbs for freshening up your skincare routine this spring (because if you're like me, winter has left your face a lil' drab!).

Although I can’t get diamonds all over my body like Cardi, I can get herbs. Kind of the same thing, right? Both from the earth, both magical. There are several ways to use herbs. You can use the root, stem or petal. They commonly come crushed into a powder as well. You can use any form of them to make tinctures, salves, and tea just to name a few.

 

Fave Herbs for Spring

Calendula

All time favorite herb, it helps with so many ailments. It’s anti-inflammatory, hydrating, helps firm and tone. It also helps the process of regeneration of the cells.

Best Usage: This one is amazing for any scratches or bites. Look into purchasing or creating a tincture or salve with this amazing plant.


Nettle

This plant is highly nutritive and nourishing. It is one of the highest nutrient dense plants. It’s packed full of vitamin C and antioxidants. This can brighten the skin and boost the immune system.

Best Usage: Steep this and drink it. There really are too many benefits of health of this one to name.


Lavender

If liking Starbucks makes you basic, in the herb world same goes for Lavender. Nothing wrong with going back to the basics though. This beautiful, aromatic, purple plant does just about everything. The most notable are reduce inflammation, improves mood and It’s best known for stress relief.

Best Usage: Keep a dried bushel next to your bed.

 

Remember to approach any new addition to your skincare lineup – all-natural or otherwise – with care. Test a small patch for sensitivity before using all over.
