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.
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. Antioxidants protect the body by donating electrons to stabilise free radicals. Free radical damage can cause cancer, among other issues, as well as promote ageing 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 use a serum?
Serums deliver a highly concentrated blast of nutrients directly to your skin. To use, apply a few drops after you wash your face but before you apply moisturizer. Serums absorb deep into your skin, rather than sitting on the surface like moisturizers. Serums work great for specific concerns like acne, dry skin, brightness, and wrinkles. After you wash your face, apply a pea-sized amount of serum to your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin. For best results, use both a daytime and nighttime serum.
Try a serum with aloe vera for an all-purpose option. If you have a “normal” skin type or simply want a serum to keep your skin flawless, try one with these ingredients. Aloe vera reduces redness and boosts skin hydration.
This is a great option if you don’t have any “problem areas” but still want to treat your skin to rich nourishment. It’s also a good option to help fade sun damage and acne scars.
Apply a serum with hyaluronic acid if you have dry skin. Hyaluronic acid help the skin retain moisture. The serum will not feel like a heavy moisturizer, and it will deeply hydrate your skin in seconds.
Choose a serum with peptides to reduce wrinkles. Peptides help build healthy skin. This serum contains various peptides. Combine these ingredients, and you have a fabulous, wrinkle-reducing serum. For best results, apply these serums at night so your skin can absorb the serum as you sleep, helpful when treating wrinkles.
Use this as an under-the-eye serum to reduce the appearance of dark circles. There are specially formulated serums specifically made to target dark circles under your eyes. If you want to reduce the appearance of under-the-eye circles, opt for one of these.
Choose both a daytime serum and nighttime serum for best results. Daytime serums are typically less concentrated, so you don’t have to worry about sun exposure. Nighttime serums are very concentrated, and the ingredients take effect while you are sleeping. Use both to keep your skin as healthy and flawless as possible.
Start slowly with your serums to give your skin time to adjust to new products. Start by applying your nightly serum once every other day, and gradually increase build toward nightly application over the course of a few weeks. Then, add your daily serum.
Use an antioxidant serum in the morning to keep your skin protected. Apply a nighttime serum with retinol to keep a youthful appearance.
How to apply your serum:
Wash and exfoliate your skin before you apply your serum. Before you apply your serum, wash your face with a facial wash or scrub. Wet your face, then massage your face wash over your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. Move your fingers in small, circular motions, then rinse the face wash away. Washing your face removes superficial dirt and oil, while exfoliating gets into your pores for a deep clean.
For best results, wash your face daily and exfoliate your skin 3-4 times a week. Do not use a manual exfoliator and a chemical exfoliator like glycolic acid in the same day.
Apply 1 drop to each section of your face if using a thin serum. The amount of serum you use will vary depending on the consistency of the ingredients. When using thinner serums, you only need a tiny amount. Apply 1 drop to your finger, then rub onto your cheek. Repeat this for the other cheek, as well as your forehead and nose/chin area. Gently rub the serum in an upwards motion
Warm 3-5 drops in your hands before applying a thick serum to the face. More dense serums need to be warmed up before you apply them. To do this, drip a few drops into the palm of your hand, then rub your hands together. This evenly distributes the product on both of your hands, as well. Then, use gentle pressing movements to apply the serum over your face. Cover both cheeks, your forehead, your nose, and your chin.
When applying the serum, you want to push the product into your skin with gentle sweeping motions.
Tap your skin gently for 30-60 seconds until the serum is absorbed. After you’ve rubbed the serum onto your skin, place your fingers on your cheek and press your skin in small, circular motions. Repeat this across the entirety of your face for about a minute.
This way, the serum will absorb deep into your skin.
Wait one minute to apply moisturizer over all of your face. Your serum will mostly dissolve into your skin after about a minute. Then, squeeze a dime-size amount of moisturizer into your hand, and rub it over your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin.
The moisturizer seals in all of the serum’s nourishing properties, so your skin will look radiant and glowing in no time.
If you are doing this in the morning, you can apply your makeup after you apply the moisturizer. Just give the moisturizer another minute to dry before starting your makeup routine.
