Soothe your Tired Legs with Avena Arnica Lotion
Work, socializing, doing chores, being on your feet all day… everything takes a toll on your legs, and before you know it, they start hurting, or go numb, or swell up.
To avoid this, try getting proper rest, taking a cold bath to stimulate blood flow, going for a light walk, lying down and raising your legs, or getting a massage. And of course, it’ll help to take advantage of one of the most valuable natural ingredients in skincare: arnica montana.
What is arnica?
Arnica is a lovely yellow flower from the Asteraceae family, and it has been used in natural remedies to treat bruising, pain, and muscle inflammation for ages.
But what’s so great about arnica? Well, the fact that all of its active ingredients (especially Sesquiterpene lactone, flavonoids, xanthophyll, choline, and phytosterols) contain the following qualities that provide important benefits for your skin:
- Healing: helps with injuries
- Moisturizing: softens the skin and soothes inflammation
- Astringent: dries excess oils and tightens pores
- Antimicrobial: inhibits the spreading of harmful microbes
- Antioxidant: helps combat free radicals that cause premature aging (is that a term or do I use early signs of aging)
- Anticoagulant: thins the blood
- Analgesic: helps relieve pain.
- Anti-inflammatory: reduces pain and inflammation
