what is horsetail extract and what can it do for my skin?
Have you ever heard of horsetail extract? Despite not being common nowadays, it has been an herbal remedy for centuries. Ancient horsetail plants were as tall as modern palm trees, and the plant is a perennial with a stem that resembles a horse’s tail. It does not reproduce with seeds, making it sterile, producing with spores instead. It goes by many different names, including Shavegrass, Bottle Brush and Scouring Rush, among others. The last is because its stem is covered in silicates that are abrasive enough to scour metal pots. Horsetail is commonly found in North America as well as temperate areas of Asia and Europe.
Also, Horsetail contains many nutrients and minerals. These include calcium, iron, manganese, silica and antioxidants. Besides being an antioxidant, horsetail is also antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antiinflammatory.
When the body is damaged, or as it ages, cells are created called free radicals. They are unstable and steal electrons from stable cells, causing a chain reaction of damage. Therefore, antioxidants protect the body by donating electrons to stabilize free radicals. Free radical damage can cause cancer, among other issues, as well as promote aging effects such as wrinkles and sagging skin.
Along with free radicals, when the body is damaged it also creates inflammation. This is the redness and puffiness associated with wounds. Inflammation is a red flag, calling the immune system to the scene to help. Inflammation can also cause the formation of free radicals, starting a cycle of damage: damage causes inflammation, which causes free radicals, which causes damage, which creates more inflammation and free radicals. Reducing inflammation reduces damage as well as other redness. Skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema are all results of inflammation.
Horsetail has been used for centuries to treat many different maladies. Taken internally, it can help with bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchial tubes), tonsilitis (inflammation of the tonsils), gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), foot infections (a result of inflammation and bacteria), sore throat (inflammation), as well as many other issues.
Hair and Nail Benefits
Horsetail is very beneficial for nails and hair. The minerals in horsetail can help strengthen brittle fingernails when horsetail extract is taken daily. It can also help by soaking the nails in an infusion of dried horsetail and water up to four times a week.
The silica in horsetail can help grow strong healthy hair as well. Ingesting horsetail extract as a tea or supplement as well as applying it straight to the hair can have beneficial effects. Mix horsetail extract with oil such as olive or coconut oil then massage it into the scalp to stimulate hair growth by improving circulation. It can also be used as a conditioner by pouring horsetail tea over hair and washing out. This conditioner will make hair shiny and less frizzy.
Along with the antioxidant benefits of antiageing, and the antiinflammatory benefits for acne and irritation, horsetail extract has other skin benefits. Applied to the skin, it can help heal rashes, burns and wounds thanks to its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.
Another antiageing benefit is the silica horsetail contains collagen. Collagen is an important part of the skin, keeping it taut and wrinkle free. Silica can help form collagen, especially when the production is slowed with ageing. Horsetail extract is used in skin products for this reason as well as for combating inflammation. Horsetail tea can also be used as a toner to calm the skin. After cleansing the skin, swipe on cooled tea with a cotton ball or swab. Horsetail can shrink pores when used this way.
How to Apply Face Cream
Start with a clean face and hands. Wash your face with lukewarm water and a face cleaner suitable for your skin type. Splash your face with cold water and gently pat it dry with a soft towel.
Take out a pea-sized amount of face cream onto the back of your hand. Don’t worry if you took out too little. A little bit often goes a long way. You can always apply more later, if necessary.
If the cream comes in a jar, then scoop out a small amount using a small spoon or scoop. This will prevent your fingers from contaminating the product inside the jar. You can find scoops at most beauty supply stores.
Start applying the cream to your face. Dab the cream onto your face in small dots. Focus on trouble areas, such as the cheeks and forehead. Avoid areas that tend to get very oily, such as the creases to either side of your nostrils.
If you have combination skin, focus more on the dry areas and less on the oily areas.
Blend the face cream in using your fingers. Gently massage the cream into your skin using small, upward, circular motions. Never drag downward on your skin. Be sure to leave a ½ inch (1.27 centimeter) margin around your eyes. Most face creams are not suitable for the delicate, sensitive skin around your eyes.
Apply more cream, if necessary. Look over your face. If there are any bare patches on your face, apply a little bit more cream. Don’t slather the cream on, however; more cream is not necessarily better or more effective.
Consider applying some face cream to your neck.
Many people tend to forget this area. The skin on your neck is delicate, and tends to age the fastest. It needs some attention as well.
Wait for your skin to absorb the cream before getting dressed or putting on makeup. During this time, you can do your hair or brush your teeth. You can also start putting on your lower garments, such as underwear, socks, pants, and skirts. This way, you won’t risk rubbing off your face cream and getting it on everything else.
