It’s only natural for us to borrow from other cultures (without appropriating, thank you)—and when it comes to skincare, we don’t hesitate. The benefits of Japanese Cherry Blossoms, aka Sakura, go beyond their ability to treat our eyes to aesthetically-pleasing visuals of trees drenched in swirls of candy-floss pink. Rumor has it that they’re a skin-loving delight. And our stalking of the flower has led us to believe that Sakura is, indeed, a delectable treat for the skin.
Sakura is replete with antioxidants, and can accelerate the synthesis of collagen, and suppress the growth of skin-damaging toxins and radicals that speed up ageing to improve elasticity, and reinstate the suppleness and smoothness of the skin.
It sloughs off build-up of impurities and dead cells on the surface of the skin, and promotes the growth of newer cells to reveal youthful-looking skin.
It exhibits anti-inflammatory properties that can soothe and treat irritation, redness, and rashes. For those with acne-prone or sensitive skin, this is your go-to ingredient for soothing and rejuvenating effectively.
Since Sakura can control the overproduction of melanin, it’s ideal for combatting hyperpigmentation, and countering uneven-ness in skin-tone. Your skin looks less patchy and spot-riddled over time. A natural skin-brightener? Check.
It’s rich in fatty acids that repair and strengthen the natural barrier of your skin. This endows you with a healthy, even-toned appearance.
This gel-based cream is packed with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that hydrate, soothe, and reinstate your glow while leaving behind the scent of cherries for you to revel in throughout the day.
Even though toning isn’t a non-negotiable skincare step, it is beneficial, provided you choose the right one for yourself. This one hydrates and brightens your complexion over time, and leaves you feeling rejuvenated even before you’re through with your skincare routine.
A spring-time favourite, savour the scent of cherries and shea-butter as they melt into one another, and roll off your body in waves of invigorating fragrances. This one’s ideal for softening and hydrating the skin. It seeps into your skin effortless for an iridescent finish without leaving behind a sticky residue.
Don’t forget to complement your cherry-scented lotion with a cherry-scented shower-gel. Imagine the most divine cocktail of scents ricocheting off the walls of your shower. We’re sold.
This one smells just as exotic as its name suggests. A best-selling body-mist from Bath And Body Works, it’s laced with a fragrance that makes you feel like you’ve fallen face-down into a sea of blossoms. And it lends a touch of sparkle to your skin. Pretty exotic!
