Cucumber

Cucumber is 95% water, and loaded with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients which makes it hugely beneficial for your skin. Some of the benefits include reducing swelling, preventing break-outs, combating premature ageing, soothing skin irritation, hydrating, reducing inflammation, preventing free radicals, tightening the skin, and helping to keep the skin moisturised. Cucumber has been used for decades on the skin for its therapeutic benefits, which is why it is such an important ingredient in Sportskn Recovery Gel.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is one of the super ingredients when it comes to skincare. Aloe Vera is loaded with antioxidants, as well as having antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties along with hundreds of active compounds such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that all work together to work wonders on the skin. Some of the benefits include, the soothing of sunburn and skin injuries, moisturisers the skin, helps to prevent and fight breakouts, slows the signs of ageing, soothes redness and irritation. We use Aloe Vera in our Sportskn Recovery Gel because we want the very best ingredients for your skin, and Aloe Vera reigns supreme. 

Chamomile

Chamomile previously would have been seen a lot as a herb that for thousands of years has been used to promote sleep, relieve stress, and soothe the mind. More recently however, Chamomile’s peaceful properties have been used to calm, heal, and soothe the skin. This is because of the hugely beneficial antioxidants found in this sleepy herb. Chamomile reduces redness which often occurs after a workout, soothes the skin, relieves inflammation, and also helps in decreasing the signs of ageing. Sportskn Recovery Gel is all about treating, protecting, and speeding up the recovery of the skin, and Chamomile is an important ingredient in that process.

Ginger

Ginger is a rejuvenator. Long used in food and teas to manage everything from an upset stomach, to the flu, more recently ginger has been found to be hugely beneficial for the skin because of its anti-inflammatory properties. We also love ginger in our Sportskn Recovery Gel for its dampening effect on the enzyme that breaks down collagen. Collagen contributes massively to the youthful look of your skin, which means a more even skin tone, as well as the fading of scars and scratches may be caused from your work out.

Purple Coneflower

Purple Coneflower, also known as echinacea, is loaded with antioxidants which help protect the skin from free radicals caused from UV rays and pollution that are commonplace for those who work out frequently. Purple Coneflower’s deep nourishing benefits also help to kill bad bacteria on the skin and prevent acne and breakouts. We use Purple Coneflower in our Sportskn Recovery Gel for all these reasons, but also because Purple Coneflower nourishes the skin from the inside out, boosting your skin’s moisturising properties, meaning less moisture can escape, leaving your skin feeling and looking better than before.

Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus has long been used for its therapeutic benefits most notably as an essential oil, usually inhaled. However, the eucalyptus plant also has antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties which make it a super plant for the skin. Eucalyptus has been said to help with the healing of wounds, as well as relieving pain, and easing inflammation. Eucalyptus is the inspiration behind the design of our Sportskn logo, and a key ingredient in our Sportskn Recovery Gel.

Lemongrass

Lemongrass is a potent cleanser and has been used for decades as an ingredient in skin and haircare. We use Lemongrass in our Sportskn Recovery Gel for its ability to detoxify the skin, helping to remove dirt from open pores, reduce oil build up, and fight against acne causing bacteria. Lemongrass’ anti-inflammatory properties also help to prevent redness, itching, and swelling, hugely beneficial after a tough workout. 

Peppermint

Peppermint has antiseptic and antibacterial properties which help to keep skin clear and clean, reducing the risk of break-outs, and keeping your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated. Peppermint is in our Sportskn Recovery Gel because of its cooling sensation on the skin, which helps with sunburn or long sun exposures, as well as kick-starting the process of cooling the body and beginning the recovery process. Meaning feeling better faster.

Thyme

Thyme is an essential oil, known to rejuvenate and stimulate. Which is perfect for our Sportskn Recovery Gel as it increases blood flow and circulation to the skin, which increases overall skin health and reduces fatigue. Thyme’s antiseptic and antifungal properties also mean it helps prevent breakouts, reduce redness, and gives relief from itchiness or tightness. Thyme leaves skin feeling and looking fresh and rejuvenated, and is a pivotal ingredient in our gel.
