What It Does
Deriving from southeast Asia, ginger is anti-inflammatory, and an antioxidant. It evens skin tone, soothes, and heals skin. Ginger increases collagen production, reduces dark spots and repairs skin.
Why It Works
The antioxidants in ginger, such as gingerol, counteract oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals to reduce inflammation. Ginger also hinders the process of collagenase, the enzymes that break down collagen and contribute to premature signs of aging.
