We’re not complaining at all that K-Beauty has taken over our life. K-Beauty has given the beauty industry everything it could want, from viral trends to luxury skincare ingredients. While we’re on the subject of Korean skincare ingredients, we know many that give us amazing benefits but there’s often one underappreciated ingredient that’s forgotten.

We’re talking about Mugwort. Harry Potter fans, this one might bring back memories of the time in Professor Sprout’s herbology class. The Harry Potter series featured a lot of magical concoctions that contained Mugwort. This herb, often known as artemisia deserves all the hype.

Mugwort is appropriate for all skin types, in contrast to other ingredients that only work with particular skin types. For sensitive skin, it performs amazingly. This ingredient is a game-changer for sensitive skin because the market is overrun with items designed specifically for oily, dry, or normal skin.
