How Glo Skin Beauty Uses Henna To Benefit Your Skin

12 Dec 2019

What is Henna used for?

Henna is most popularly known for its uses as a natural hair dye and a dye for temporary body tattoos. Used in Eastern cultures for thousands of years with even Cleopatra adorning her body with henna designs, Henna has a lot of healing properties that make it a staple in Ayurveda.

Along with being a natural and nontoxic dye for hair, Henna has well known properties that nourish and promote healthy hair. It is a wonderful conditioner with protective and restorative powers. It works by sealing the cuticle of the hair therefore preventing hair from breaking. By improving the structure of hair and coating each hair shaft, henna makes hair thick and glossy, giving it a lustrous sheen. It also restores moisture to your locks, reducing frizz and split ends. 

Henna also helps maintain scalp health by balancing the oil production and pH levels of your scalp. Its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties contribute to cooling and soothing the scalp. Being an excellent cleanser, it helps unclog hair follicles while restoring the normal functioning of the sebaceous glands. This also helps reduce dandruff. A healthy scalp, along with the improved structure of your hair, stops hair loss and enables faster hair growth with improved texture and condition. 

Henna is not just for your hair, but also for your skin

The use of Henna on the skin is usually thought to be just cosmetic in the form of natural temporary body tattoos. However, Henna contains immensely beneficial properties even for skin care. Proven to be an astringent, Henna is used to reduce signs of aging, wrinkles, and fine lines. It is also used to reduce blemishes, dark spots, and scars on the skin. Its antiviral, antibacterial, and cooling properties also make it useful for treating wounds, sunburns, and skin rashes.

Henna is also used to improve nail quality. It protects cuticles and the space under the nails from infections and bacteria. Its antifungal properties also make it an excellent and natural treatment for foot and nail fungus, a decidedly stubborn condition.
