Licorice extract is one of many natural compounds that act as a skin brightener when applied topically. An extract of licorice called liquirtin, is successfully used in the treatment of Melasma. The main active ingredient found in licorice extract for skin bleaching is glabridin. Glabridin inhibits pigmentation by preventing tyrosinase activation. Further, the licorice extract also has anti-inflammatory properties. Licorice root extract when applied topically can inhibit the production of irritants which cause acne and Rosacea. Thus from skin brightening to treating acne and Rosacea, Licorice root has a very promising role to play in boosting skin health.
