Bamboo is becoming the key ingredient in skincare products, especially in the Korean beauty range because it consists of lots of benefits. Bamboo has astringent and anti-acne properties that make it popular in the beauty industry. Also, it has some powerful antioxidants and is a powerhouse that every skin loves. Well, well, bamboo actually contains 70% natural silica, an organic compound, essential for the body and makes our skin radiant and supple. Let’s know more reasons why our skin deserves this miraculous ingredient in our skincare routine.
Strengthens The Skin
It can leave your skin with the perfect firmness and strength that makes it perfect for acne-prone skin. Acne damages the outer layer of the skin that protects it from environmental pollutants and bacteria. So, bamboo strengthens the barrier and restores the outer layer of the skin making it easier to fight acne.
Makes Skin Radiant & Supple
If you dry and dull skin, then one should invest in bamboo-infused skincare products. It has moisturizing properties that keep your skin supple and boosts hydration. The silica in bamboo helps in the production of collagen and of course, you’ll get firm skin. And if you use Bamboo regularly as an ingredient it would leave your skin supple.
Consists Antibacterial Properties
For people who have acne-prone or irritated skin, take notes because bamboo extracts have antibacterial properties which you should include in your skincare routine. Whenever you touch your skin with dirty hands or use another pillow, there’s new acne popping up? Acne is caused by damage to your skin’s moisture barrier and bamboo silica can help strengthen the skin’s barrier. Also, it has anti-inflammatory properties that help to keep your skin calm by protecting the skin cells against irritation.
Protects Skin From Free Radicals
It acts as a powerful antioxidant that acts as a barrier against free radicals. Yes, our skin needs the magic of bamboo and it’s high time that you invest in bamboo enriched products. Also, it diminishes fine lines and keeps your skin comparatively moisturized and supple. Well, this may have something to do with the fact that silica enhances your skin’s elasticity.
Enhanced Skin Elasticity
Silica plays an essential role in the formulation of collagen but is also responsible for hydroxylation enzymes that improve your skin’s elasticity and strength. The healthier your collagen production, the more your skin becomes firmer and tighter. And without adequate silica, our bodies don’t produce collagen. Did you know our collagen levels in our bodies decline as we age and so do our silica? The increased collagen makes our skin glow and silica is an essential mineral that helps to strengthen blood vessels.
