Are you ready to discover the real story of these magical plants that grow right in your own backyard? Below are our top 5 amazing herbs and plants that have an extremely beneficial effect on your skin.

  1. Vitamin K in Irish Moss improves the elasticity
    Seaweed may not be your best friend during your summer-swim-sessions but it can be surprisingly beneficial for your skin. Chondrus Cripus, also known as Irish moss, is a seaweed that is found mainly along the coast - yes, you guessed it - on the Irish coast. 

Irish Moss is rich in vitamin K, which:

  • Improves the elasticity of the skin and thus prevents wrinkles and other aging phenomena
  • Protects, nourishes and soothes the skin 
  • Relieves the side effects of psoriasis, allergies, rashes, cuts, dandruff, eczema and even sunburn

  • For this reason, Irish moss is now often added as a binding agent to high-quality skin creams, check out our cellular rejuvenating cream or serum  which are rich in vitamins.

    2. The Siegesbeckia herb heals the skin

    The yellow Siegesbeckia herb is found in Asia and Madagascar among other tropical regions and is known as a medicinal plant with soothing and wound healing stimulating effect. From a cosmetic point of view, the Siegesbeckia Orientalis helps foster smooth, fine skin as it:

  • stimulates collagen for firmness and elasticity of the skin
  • reduces pigmentation spots also known as age spots

  • Especially impressive is the property of the herb to reduce the absorption of melanin in the horn cells and to permanently support a smooth skin appearance. We love this herb!

    1. Plant extract Rabdosia Rubescens lets your skin shine
      Now your skin can light up the room with Rabdosia Rubescens - in China known as the famous Dong Ling Cao. It is a type of perennial herb which also grows in a tropical climate. The plant extract inhibits the absorption of melanin into the keratinocytes which:

  • promotes a softening and antioxidant effect 
  • ensures an even, radiant complexion

  • In addition, this herb prevents the appearance of dark spots and redness, while providing that beautiful promised shine.

    1. Bacopa Monniera (Brahmi) cures the skin
      It is true, Bacopa is a pharmacy in its own right. This herb is also referred to as a longevity herb in ancient Indian and Chinese traditions. Nowadays it’s widely used in anti-aging serums and creams as it has miraculous effects on the skin.

      This herb is increasingly gaining attention in the cosmetic industry because of its many (many!) positive effects on the skin. Here are the most important ones for you:

  • Soothes skin and minimizes scars
  • Cleanses, softens and protects the skin
  • Cures acne by treating acne prone skin effectively
  • Renews cells to brighten the skin and enhance complexion
  • Treats skin problems like eczema, psoriasis, ulceration and abscess
    1. Rich substance Allantoin renews the skin
      Allantoin is a substance found in comfrey and wheat germ, among other things. This rich substance has traditionally been used for the healing of wounds and skin ulcers. Allantoin replaces your scrub products as it removes the dead skin cell layer and leaves a soft, smooth and glowy surface. What else can we expect from Allantoin?

  • The substance supports the water retention in the skin cells, so it has a moisturizing function
  • It softens rough and flaky skin

  • Allantoin is non-toxic, non-irritating and effective in low concentrations. Such a perfect ingredient for your favorite skin products.

    I hear you thinking - I want that seaweed in combination with the shine from the Siegesbeckia, and I also want the plant extracts that renew and cure my skin, plus the herb that prevents wrinkles - of course, we ladies deserve it all (and our skin too)! That’s why DI Skincare developed many rich skin care products  that include every single one of these amazing natural skin ‘healers’.

    A gorgeous skin is the result of a healthy skin care routine leaving you without the need for heavy makeup or Instagram filters!
