The ancient Greek physician/botanist Dioscorides (AD 40–90) was the first to record the healing benefits of milk thistle. Since then, the multitasking palliative has evolved into a fixture of natural medicine, used to treat everything from liver problems to diabetes to depression. It’s also a popular skin care ingredient thanks to its emollient and antioxidant properties. Applied topically, it nourishes the skin and protects against free-radical damage that can cause visible signs of aging.
