How does daisy flower extract lighten the skin?
Common Daisy flower extract contains a naturally-occurring substance called L-arbutin.
This can help to lighten the skin. It may also help prevent or improve existing skin pigmentation problems. L-arbutin lightens the skin by interfering with pathways that lead to the formation of melanin or pigment, which is responsible for skin coloration.
Exposure to the sun’s UV rays can trigger melanocytes or melanin-producing cells. Excessive exposure can cause overproduction of melanin, which leads to pigmentation or discoloration.
This becomes obvious as we age. Daisy flower extract can block the formation of melanin, effectively preventing pigmentation or dark spots.
Daisy flower extract is a safe, natural alternative for a common skin lightening chemical called hydroquinone. It is effective in skin whitening and improving pigmentation. However, hydroquinone can have adverse effects, especially when used for a long time.
Other beneficial substances in daisy flower extract are antioxidants, malic, and tartaric acids (skin-firming natural acids).
Common Daisy flower extract can help in case of the following issues.
Sunspots occur due to prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. They are brown, round, flat patches that usually appear on skin that gets regular sun exposure.
You might find them on the nose, cheeks, forehead, ears, neck, upper lip, arms and back of the hands. Sunspots are terribly challenging to treat, especially if you can’t bear products with hydroquinone.
The good thing is, products with daisy flower extract are known to be potent skin lighteners and they are safe to use.
2. Uneven skin tone
Patchy skin (areas that are darker than others) can lead to uneven melanin buildup in the skin.
When exposed to the sun, the areas of the skin with more melanin will darken more rapidly than other areas, resulting in uneven skin color.
Daisy flower extract can naturally lighten these patches, helping to prevent the skin discolorations.
3. Premature wrinkles and sagging skin
Frequent UV exposure leads to the damage of collagen fibers, scar tissue buildup, and interference of the creation of new collagen - essential for healthy, supple skin.
As time goes by, your skin doesn’t spring back the way young skin does, thus wrinkling, drooping, and sagging begins. Using products containing daisy extract can help keep skin looking youthful.
4. Hydroquinone Intolerance
If you react adversely to skin care products that contain hydroquinone or kojic acid, daisy flower extract is an excellent natural substitute.
If you have allergies to plants or flowers, check with your doctor before using any new skincare product.
