ONE THING Hottuynia Cordata Extract 150ml

£12

All of One Thing’s potent single ingredient extracts can be used on all skin types but Houttuynia Cordata Extract is especially beneficial for blemish-prone skin.

This medicinal herb is also known as Heartleaf and boasts a string of healthy skin benefits – it’s anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, astringent and has antibiotic-like properties, which means it works to prevent infections that may occur with acne and blemishes while calming active, angry spots at the same time.

This herbal plant is rich in Quercetin, a plant pigment or flavonoid that has antioxidant properties. It protects the body from free radicals and offers some serious soothing, restoring and anti-ageing effects too. You’ll see clearer, calmer, happier skin for the long term.

KEY INGREDIENTS

  • Houttuynia Cordata Extract to calm breakouts and inflammation while soothing and rejuvenating skin at the same time
  • Butylene glycol, a humectant to prevent water loss

WHY WE LOVE IT

This is a true troubled-skin saver. Soak a cotton pad in the extract and keep it on the problem area for 10 minutes to help calm, heal and restore the skin barrier. It’s great for irritated scalps too. Dispense it into a mini spray bottle and spritz it into partings to help soothe any red, angry areas on your scalp. You can mist it over bare skin too throughout the day or pair it with a layer of aloe vera on especially sensitised areas for extra soothing and healing benefits.

After cleansing, apply this extract in a variety of ways. Use it as a toner and let it absorb into skin; soak cotton pads in it and apply them to your face for a bespoke sheet mask; dispense it into a spray bottle and use it as an on-the-go mist; or add a few drops into your favourite moisturiser to reap its benefits by multi-tasking. Follow with a serum and moisturiser.
