Benefits of Bamboo Skincare
By: Angelique Macris Saffle ~
When you think of bamboo, does a picture of a cute panda come to mind? They love to munch on bamboo leaves and for good reason!
Well bamboo isn’t just for pandas. It’s an effective ingredient popular in Korean skincare…so it’s no wonder we’d want to add it to our skincare stash!
Bamboo is a rich source of SILICA - an essential nutrient that keeps the skin healthy. Our skin’s collagen and silica production starts to slow in our 20’s, so in addition to focusing on collagen production, adding silica to skincare also helps keep skin plump and healthy looking. It has excellent moisturizing as well as hydrating properties. It is also gentle and anti-irritating, so products with bamboo extract will soothe the skin while it's working.
Studies using bamboo have found that it works on fading dark spots as well as helps with acne. It’s full of many essential compounds including amino acids and flavonoids. Adding bamboo to your regimen will help strengthen the skin’s overall health and is a great addition to any skincare routine!
