Skincare products constantly flood our inboxes in Instagram feeds; however, Saffron has the highest praise and reception. You probably have smelled the Aroma of Saffron in Persian and Indian restaurants garnishing rice. This Magical Potion of the Middle East happens to be the most expensive spice in the world. Saffron has been praised for its medicinal and healing properties for centuries. It turns out that some of the same properties that give this spice its total-body benefits can also brighten, calm, and protect your skin.

What Is Saffron?

Saffron is a stigma of a scarce Ayurvedic flower, which can only be harvested in a two

-week window by Hand. Now we understand why Saffron is so expensive. Saffron is called the magical elixir of skin care for the following reasons:

A powerful antioxidant: Saffron is a powerful antioxidant, rich in vitamin C, and has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It protects against UV damage and pollutants that produce free radicals.

Brightens skin: It is a soothing brightener due to its natural antioxidant properties.

Helps skin recover from environmental stressors: Saffron contains crocin and crocetin. These two elements are known for cell repair properties. They repair and heal any existing sun damage.

Heals cuts, scrapes, and other wounds: Saffron has cell turnover and skin production ability.

Reduces Hyperpigmentation: High volume of antioxidants and vitamins breaks down melanin production and fights Hyperpigmentation.

Calms inflammation: Saffron is a great healer that helps inflammation and acne.

Anti-aging: According to studies, the two rich antioxidant crocin increase the skin's elasticity for a more youthful look.

How to get the most benefit of Saffron for your skin?

Saffron is formulated into many products, from masks to cleansers to serums. Shrankhla Holecek, the founder of Uma Oils and an expert in Ayurvedic and holistic medicine, believes you'll reap the most benefit from a leave-on product. "Given its preciousness and miraculous benefits, saffron is most used in skincare intended for leaving on the skin to promote ongoing repair," she says. "It'd be cost-prohibitive, and perhaps a little wasteful, to use it in a cleanser, as it won't be on the skin long enough to have all the impact it can have."
