When you think of peonies, you probably think of Instagram-perfect petals in a luscious bloom. Or maybe you think of a peony bush in a well-tended garden, bursting with beautiful clouds of the delicate flower.
You probably don't think of skincare. But there's a reason we harnessed the power of peony for our Peony Foot Mask: it's a powerful ingredient.
1. It has antioxidant benefits
As you know by now, UV rays from the sun damage your skin. Peony's antioxidants help protect against free radicals that cause oxidative stress—which is just a fancy of saying peony helps strengthen your skin against sun damage. That means it can help your skin look healthier and better shield it against the signs of aging.
2. It contains paeonol
Paeonol is an anti-inflammatory compound that also acts as an antibacterial and anti-fungal agent. That's especially great for serums used on feet; after all, feet sweat and are confined in tight spaces most of the time, which makes them prone to fungal infections and other issues.
3. It helps brighten and firm
Peony is great for improving your skin's brightness, making it look healthier along while looking firmer. That makes it a fantastic addition to facial skincare products.
4. It's gentle
Unlike other harsher skincare ingredients, peony is extremely gentle and can be combined with any other products and ingredients without interactions. It's a great choice for those with sensitive skin.
