The dandelion herb helps flush the skin of toxins, reduces skin inflammation, and improves skin’s overall complexion. Additionally, the overwhelming presence of antioxidants in the dandelion equips skin to fight skin cell-damaging free radicals, thus slowing down and guarding skin against the visible symptoms of aging. Dandelion’s natural antifungal qualities and high alkaline levels enable this ingredient to help fight off skin tissue infection when incorporated in skin care products.

Dandelion’s natural detoxifying abilities enable it to help regulate proper secretion of hormones and help keep the skin cleansed and shielded against infection.
