The Ingredient You Need To Add To Your Skincare Routine

By now, we all recognise the importance of a good skincare routine, but it isn’t always clear which products and ingredients deliver real results. That’s where Herbal Essentials comes in. Its range uses ingredients inspired by the world of ayurveda – all of which are designed to go deeper and make a visible difference to your complexion. Here’s what you need to know about the brand’s hero ingredient – Himalayan Active Water – and three of its must-have products…

Created in partnership with Herbal Essentials


Herbal Essentials prides itself on formulating simple, natural and affordable skincare that’s perfect for slotting into your everyday routine. But the philosophy behind the brand is more than skin deep. It believes effective products should penetrate the skin's barrier to promote internal healing and produce better results. That’s why many of the products contain ayurvedic ingredients, to target the dermis and stimulate skin renewal for a plumper, brighter complexion.


The brand’s hero ingredient – Himalayan Active Water – contains three essential minerals to protect, strengthen and hydrate the skin’s barrier from within. Magnesium calms redness and irritation, while calcium improves antioxidant production and boosts cell renewal. Finally, potassium ensures the skin is aptly nourished, supporting the skin's ability to hold onto moisture. This blend is also clinically proven to visibly support cell renewal – and therefore help heal the skin from within. It also stimulates the process of keratin regeneration in the epidermis to achieve visibly healthier and more resilient skin.



The Nourishing Cream, £12

It’s no surprise make-up artists rave about this cream, which is designed to prep the skin and deliver that dewy glow. Around 95% of the ingredients – like most Herbal Essential products – are derived from natural origins. This list includes skin-loving heroes like aloe vera which has anti-septic properties that keep breakouts and blemishes at bay, as well as apricot oil which contains naturally occurring Vitamin C and E to soothe and nourish skin

The Refreshing Toner, £15

Anyone craving glow should add in this award-winning toner, morning and night. Not only is it clinically proven to boost hydration by 41%, it’ll minimise the appearance of your pores, while refreshing ingredients like rose water and cucumber extract will perk up the skin.

The Photo Finish Face Veil, £15

Even though it’s known for its skincare, the brand dabbles in make-up hybrids like this new product, which is full of hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and natural antioxidants. Blurring ingredients smooth the look of enlarged pores, while added actives improve the look of imperfections over time.
