Beauty Find: The Miracle of Calendula
August 10, 2005
Calendula comes from marigold plants and truly is natureâ€™s wonder remedy for your skin. I first discovered its power when my facialist lathered my sunburned face with Jurlique’s Calendula Cream. All I can say is â€œovernight relief.â€ Biologiqueâ€™s Creme Dermopurifiante can also be used as a moisturizing mask for problem skin and works well as a protective night cream. Or for a mere $2.54 you can get all-over action from the Tom’s of Maine Calendula bar. But the king daddy of calendula is REN Clean Skin Careâ€™s Calendula Omega 3/7 Hydra-Calm Moisturiser. The fatty acids reduce inflammation restoring the skin’s elasticity while chamomile and calendula protect against free radicals and pollution. I could care less about the specifics, what I love is the gentle scent and the fact that my face is thanking me by glowing. And not in its usual scary red-faced way. Find it at hqhair.com.
