3 Beneficial Ingredients in Skin Care and How They Work

If you want to know more about some of the most beneficial natural skin care ingredients, this is the article for you! Let’s get straight to the top 5 natural skin care ingredients!

Moringa oil

Moringa oil is one of the most nutrient dense oils in the world, which makes it no wonder that it has been used for health and beauty for centuries!

Moringa oil comes from the seeds of the moringa oleifera tree, which is the most common species. Moringa tree is native to the sub-Himalayan areas of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan.  

The moringa tree is also called the "Miracle Tree" and "Tree of Life" because of its many benefits and uses. Most parts of the tree are edible and nutritious, and parts of it can be made into medicine also.

Moringa oil is also very nutritious, clear, odourless oil which can easily be absorbed by the skin. These properties make it a favorite among skin care oils, not to mention its various antioxidant and  skin rejuvenating properties.

As moringa oil absorbs easily into the skin, it can quickly and effectively improve the appearance and radiance of skin. It is packed with nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E, as well as antioxidants, all nutrients which are famous for their rejuvenating and skin-repairing qualities.  It also is beneficial to treat dry skin and even conditions like dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. Moringa oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, and it even helps fight hyperpigmentation (such as age spots). No wonder it’s the “miracle oil”!

Manuka Honey

This special honey, which is found only in New Zealand, is used in both traditional and modern medicine because of its natural antibacterial properties. It can also be eaten as a superfood for many health benefits.

Manuka honey is produced by bees that collect nectar from the special Manuka bush, indigenous only to New Zealand. The bees gather the nectar and take it to their hive. There they add an enzyme called glucose oxidase to the nectar in order to preserve the honey. This way the bees are giving the honey antibacterial, anti microbial, antiviral, antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti fungal properties – thus giving us a great gift of health!

It also has many beauty related qualities, which make it a great ingredient in natural skin care products as well. It is, for example, a very effective moisturizer and antioxidant. Manuka honey also soothes inflamed skin while healing blemishes, and helps balance the skin’s pH.

Did I already mention it contains powerful amino acids which help clear away away dead skin cells, helping to keep pores clear and the skin able to rejuvenate itself?  In addition to that, Manuka honey nourishes your skin with vitamins, minerals and proteins, helping to support collagen and elastin production, plus it is a good moisturizer, too.

This ingredient is truly packed with wonderful properties for damaged or aging skin!


Natural Vitamin E

The benefits of vitamin E (also called alpha-tocopherol) for the health of the skin are proven. Vitamin E can help fight the damaging effects on your skin of free radicals, which come from various sources including pollution, poor nutrition, and as a result of aging.

Vitamin E can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and also helps prevent the appearance of age spots. It has also been shown to significantly reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the skin and it can even help scars to gradually fade away.

There’s one problem though. Many forms of vitamin E are synthetic. These synthetic vitamins are likely to be much less effective than the natural forms of vitamin E. That means you’ll be better off with a product using natural vitamin E.

You could try the Lift Creme by Blissoma to enjoy the effects of Vitamin E for anti aging.


Together, these 3 ingredients that I have just talked about are some of the most powerful age defying skin care compounds available on the market today. They have a dramatic effect on your skin, if you use them, you are bound to look healthier, younger and have less wrinkles.
