What flower extract is best for your skin type?Flower extracts are big news in skincare.

But their body-boosting benefits are anything but new. In fact, anti-oxidant rich flowers have been used in skincare treatments for centuries, which is why there is plenty of evidence to support complexion-enhancing qualities.

Here is a lowdown on the perfect petal for your skin type.

Rose
Rose extract is brilliant for intensive moisturising, which is why it’s one of the most popular floral extracts used in skincare products. It’s ideal for those with particularly dry skin. Plus, according to Chinese medicine, rose is thought to have spot and pigment reducing power too. Try Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream.

Hibiscus
The tropical flower is a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids which exfoliate skin, speed up cell turnover, and help control acne breakouts, all of which can encourage fresher, younger, and smoother looking skin. They also increase moisture and improve flexibility and elasticity. Try Decleor Relaxing Eye Cream with Hibiscus Extract.

Orchid
If flawless, even-toned skin is what you’re after, then why not opt for extract of orchid. The flower, a powerful antioxidant, is known to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and acts as a humectant that moisturises, soothes and conditions skin. Try Garnier Vital Restore Night Cream, which is enriched with orchid extract.

Poppy
These pretty petals help calm and soften your skin, and possess powerful anti-inflammatory properties. The poppy can be found in products formulated to soothe, condition, protect and hydrate. Try Sisley Buff & Wash Gel with poppy extract.

Jasmine
Extract of jasmine is gorgeously nourishing for skin and works to reduce fine lines and increase elasticity. Try Jurlique Jasmine Hand Cream.

Lavender
Perfect for stressed skin, lavender’s beauty benefits aren’t to be underestimated. For a hugely soothing treatment, try Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair Mask.
