The cherry blossom tree is not just a thing of immense beauty. Its pale-pink blooms have proven to be a reliable ally when it comes to tackling a number of skin concerns. So while the delicate cherry blossom may bloom only between mid-March and May, you can continue to reap its benefits all year round with products infused with extracts of the exquisite flower. 

In fact, many beauty brands in India and across the world have entire collections of skincare and fragrances dedicated to cherry blossom. We’ll get into that, but first, let’s get to know the dainty flower a bit better, shall we?

Chasing Cherry Blossoms

Travellers the world over often add cherry-blossom viewing to their bucket list, visiting destinations such as Japan and France to catch a glimpse of these breathtaking, but short-lived, blooms.

Representing the fleeting nature of life and beauty, cherry blossoms – or sakura as they are known in Japanese – are highly revered, with the Japanese even celebrating Hanami, a traditional flower-viewing custom of enjoying the beauty of these transient cherry blossoms. It includes picnics in public gardens where tourists and locals with their friends and families sit together under the mesmerising flower-laden trees, taking in their beauty and their light, refreshing scent, all while enjoying food, drinks and conversations. How perfect is that?

Sakura In Skincare

Cherry blossoms are also packed with some amazing skin-healing properties. It’s no wonder then that it is one of the most sought-after botanicals across the world and many beauty brands in India offer specific product ranges. Here’s how it can help…

Anti-inflammatory: Sakura flowers have been found to have anti-inflammatory properties and help reduce nitric oxide in the skin, which tends to cause irritation, inflammation and redness.

Helps repair dull, tired skin: Cherry blossoms are rich in fatty acids and antioxidants that have the ability to strengthen your skin’s natural barrier, giving you a smooth, even-toned and well-hydrated complexion. 

Skin brightening: By inhibiting the production of melanin, cherry blossom extracts can help lessen hyperpigmentation and visibly brighten the skin. 

Tackles signs of ageing: Cherry blossom extract has been proven as an anti-glycation agent that helps generate collagen and elastin which leads to plumper, younger-looking skin.
