For centuries, humans have been searching for and experimenting with interesting beauty concoctions to help us look our best. Say hello to the new “it” ingredient for health, wellness, and beauty: mushrooms.
These adaptogenic ingredients have been used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years and are currently making the rounds as skincare superstars. Celebrated for their ability to improve overall skin health and youthfulness, it’s no wonder they’re topping every beauty guru’s list.
Read on to discover why mushrooms are about to become your favorite new skincare ingredient.
What is Snow Mushroom?
Snow mushroom – or tremella fuciformis – usually found in the tropics. This gelatinous ’shroom has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine and cuisine (snow fungus soup, anyone?) for its ability to provide deep and long-lasting hydration.
What are the Benefits of Snow Mushroom?
Snow mushroom has been compared to hyaluronic acid, a popular beauty ingredient that’s best known for improving the skin’s ability to retain moisture. The snow fungus contains an enzyme that does just that — except it does a better job than its chemical counterpart. The mushroom also penetrates the skin easier because its particles are smaller than those in hyaluronic acid. Add in the fact that mushrooms are all-natural — a major plus these days as many people make the switch to chemical-free products.
Enhances Skin Strength & Elasticity
In addition to attracting moisture, snow mushroom excels at keeping it in place. By encouraging your skin to retain as much moisture as possible, your skin forms a naturally flexible film that traps in water and prevents it from escaping. Restoring dry skin to its optimally hydrated state, enabling it to better carry out functions that keep it strong, supple, and elastic, making you look younger.
