Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK - Chloe Bur­cham @Chloe­bur­cham

Whether it’s down to the ban on mi­crobeads or the wave of green-juice drinkers tak­ing over the coun­try, there’s been a huge rise in the de­mand for nat­u­ral beauty. And now the boffins are tak­ing it back to ba­sics, us­ing herbs to pimp up our sk­in­care. But you don’t need a de­gree in botan­ics or ac­cess to a pes­tle and mor­tar to see why these tra­di­tional in­gre­di­ents get a mas­sive yes from us.

Co­rian­der

Not just for your cur­ries, co­rian­der con­tains Omegas 3, 6 and 9, which deeply nour­ish the skin, leav­ing it hy­drated and smooth. Try: Ae­sop Co­rian­der seed Body Cleanser, £17

Laven­der
