Orchids are having a major moment, you guys. The gorgeously delicate buds seem to live forever, and as it turns out, there’s actual, legit reasons why they’re so strong—which totally benefit your skin. Orchids are not only some of the most beautiful blooms, but orchid extract is known to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, act as an anti-oxidant and humectant that moisturizes, soothes and conditions our skin. Yes, we know Pantone named "Radiant Orchid" the Color of the Year in 2014—but no, the anti-aging benefits don’t come from the color. So rather than ride the purple wave, we pulled together the best orchid-infused products on the market—for your hair, face and bod—so you can get a taste of the A-List ingredient, too.
