With its reputation as one of the most expensive spices in the world, saffron has several skincare benefits to give you a glowing complexion. Touted as a beauty agent across the world, saffron can be especially beneficial in brightening skin tone, reducing hyperpigmentation, and treating acne scars and blemishes.
Let’s take a look at why you should include saffron in your skincare routine.
1. Makes your skin glow
You can easily whip up a DIY saffron face mask for radiant and glowing skin. Add a few strands of saffron to 1-2 tbsp of hot water in a small bowl. After about half an hour, crush the strands with your fingertips to get the saffron extract. Mix it in honey, apply over clean skin, and leave it on for 10-15 minutes.
Packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, this face mask is excellent for improving skin tone and complexion.
2. Has anti-aging effects
Environmental and lifestyle factors such as smoking, excess sun exposure, and vitamin D deficiencies all contribute to premature aging.
