Marshmallow Root: Goodness for the skin
Happy skin is healthy skin, we all know that but how exactly do we keep our skin happy when there are external stressors ready to damage it if we forget to protect it? Our skin is the largest organ of our body and it is important that it gets enough nutrition and hydration just like the rest of our body.
We need to keep our body healthy by protecting it from infections, viruses, and inflammation. To do this, nature has provided us with incredible herbs and medicines. One of them is Marshmallow and it is not a fluffy confectionery.
What is Marshmallow Root?
Do you know, the famous sugary treat Marshmallow derives its name from a plant using which it was made previously. Eventually, the use of the Marshmallow plant to make Marshmallows stopped completely.
The Marshmallow is a perennial plant with small pinkish-white flowers. It is native to Europe and western Asia. The leaves and roots of the Marshmallow plant are used for its herbal properties. The roots of the Marshmallow plant have various medicinal purposes. Some people use it to treat stomach problems and mouth ulcers. The Marshmallow Root Extracts (MRE) contain a high amount of mucilage which is helpful to our skin.
Why use Marshmallow Root in skincare?
Marshmallow roots have incredible anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. These properties help our skin to fight inflammation and reduce skin infection caused due to parasites. It is also just as effective on insect bites and skin burns. Marshmallow Root Extracts also have immunomodulatory effects. That is, they can harness a person’s immune system to combat skin problems.
The high mucilage content present in Marshmallow roots softens and hydrates our skin. This is helpful because dry skin is more prone to premature aging than well-hydrated skin. It also has amazing skin healing properties. As a result, it has been used traditionally to heal cuts and burns and protect the wound from infection. It soothes our skin by reducing inflammation and acne.
