Elder flowers are rich in bioflavanoids that help prevent wrinkles from developing. They have astringent properties that cause the skin to tighten, reducing the size of pores and smoothing the skin. Elder flowers also contain anti-oxidants that protect against sun and other free-radical damage, plus anti-microbial and anti-fungal compounds that help keep the skin healthy and clear.
