Mother Nature ApprovedMother nature-approved ingredients that offer a bevy of beauty benefits!

Chamomile
Yes, this calming herb comes in handy when you need a relaxing cup of tea before bed, but helping you fall asleep is only one of the many ways chamomile can make you look and feel prettier. In addition to being a key ingredient in many hair products—it's accentuates natural highlights in blondes and brunettes and is a stellar conditioner—chamomile works wonders to soothe skin and diffuse acne flare-ups. It also helps with the treatment of eczema and contact dermatitis. Look for it in: Calm Cool & Corrected anti-redness tranquility cream.

Rosemary
The energizing aroma of rosemary is definitely a love-it-or-hate-it type of smell. But either way, you can't disregard its phenomenal ability to stimulate your scalp and make your hair look incredibly shiny. Look for it in: shampoos, conditioners and scalp treatments.

Lavender
The ultimate aromatherapy fix, one whiff of this extremely calming scent relaxes both mind and body. Lavender is known for its antiseptic properties, which make it ideal for helping to treat acne (by reducing inflammation). It also comes in handy when soothing a sunburn. Look for it in: fragrances, moisturizers and bath and body products.

Sage
A member of the mint family, sage is a universally skin-friendly herb. The vitamin-rich oil in the sage leaf is stimulates cell turnover and improves circulation, making it a popular natural anti-aging ingredient. It is also used to reduce redness, which helps improve the look of varicose veins. Look for it in skin treatments and toners.

Ginseng Root
Used as a natural beauty ingredient for centuries in Asia, the extract of this ancient root can be found in many skincare products. Loaded with antioxidants, essential oils and minerals, ginseng is commonly found in antiaging treatments because of its rejuvenating effects: it stimulates collagen production, which strengthens skin. You will also find that ginseng root extract may help treat brown spots (aka hyperpigmentation). Look for it in toners, moisturizers and masks.
