Saffron skin benefits

Saffron is one of the most expensive and fragile components in the world. It is 10 times more expensive than vanilla, more expensive than gold and five times more valued than caviar. Saffron is used in cosmetics that are used for anti-aging purpose and to look beautiful. This is because the flower pistil, which contains glycan, that is, a chain of saccharide structures with the capacity to regenerate cells and strengthen the natural barrier against free radicals.

Therefore saffron has got anti-oxidant, anti-aging and anti-stain properties. Since it is very expensive many may abstain from using saffron skin benefits. But you must understand only a small amount is enough for skin care.

Choose the right type of saffron

Now it is important to choose the right type of saffron for proper skin care. The darker the color the better the quality of the product. The best is dark red with orange. Since saffron is expensive, many people go for cheaper option. For the skin care masks that we have provided below you need to choose the best quality saffron which is the darker one.

If the saffron is yellow in color then it is not good and is adulterated.  Another way to find if saffron is adulterated is to put the stigma in hot milk. If it retains its color after 10 minutes of being in the warm milk, then the saffron is not adulterated. If it turns white then it is not good quality.

Saffron is also available in powder form. But for powder it is difficult to tell whether or not it has been adulterated just by looking at the color.
