Orchids are not just beautiful. They’re also known to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, it acts as an anti-oxidant and humectant that moisturizes, soothes and conditions our skin.  It is one of skincare’s beauty secrets, restoring one’s smooth, radiant complexion and flawless skin tone.

Orchid leaves contain certain pigments from a group of plant pigments called Anthocyanins. These synthesize in response to stressors like UV radiation, temperature extremes, drought, diseases and pollution. In turn, they do the same wonders for your skin.

Anthocyanins are also part of a larger group of phytochemicals called flavonoids, which are known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities. Certain flavonoids have Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) — fighting radicals up to four times more than Vitamins E & C. Thus, orchids help sooth, and enhance tone while minimizing oxidative stress.
