Reishi: Vital mushrooms with rejuvenating potential for the skin

Natural cosmetics contains various ingredients - important are those that enrich the product with the active substances of the plant richness of nature. One such active ingredient is Reishi, a mushroom that seems to fight for more than just human health: its beneficial properties also unobtrusively move into the world of skin and hair care cosmetics. What can it do in external use?

Reishi. It is also nicknamed the mushroom of immortality – and rightly so as it has been a common natural remedy in Asia for centuries, used daily in the East. For example, as a supplement in the treatment of cancer or infections. It is also part of traditional Chinese medicine which uses the power of medicinal mushrooms and other natural ingredients. This remarkable mushroom is rich in antioxidants, substances that support our immune system. Due to its overall composition, it brings benefits to the human body not only when used internally – in cosmetics it comes in the form of an added extract in skin and hair care products because it is also effective when applied externally, which will perhaps soon be proved by more professional studies. So what can Reishi do and what is its potential in the world of natural cosmetics?

Fight free radicals

Antioxidants. These are exactly the substances in the skin that protect it and prevent premature aging. In addition, they also increase both the protection against harmful UV radiation and the total skin immunity. And this is where Reishi comes in, maintaining the level of the two strongest antioxidants in the skin – ergothioneine and reduced glutathione. Products with Reishi extract support the skin's ability to respond to external stimuli that can damage the skin.

Redness and irritation have no chance

Irritated skin usually responds to some discomfort. Such skin is not only unpleasantly itchy and irritated, but also often ugly – red spots, maps, redness may appear on it. But – natural cosmetics suitable for sensitive or inflamed skin containing Reishi can quickly relieve irritated skin. The immunity enhancement of the adaptogenic properties of mushrooms soothes the skin and reduces redness. The result is a reduction in tension and a unified skin.

Hydration, a way to vital and youthful skin

Hydration here, hydration there. Hydration is mentioned everywhere wherever you look – it's simply because the skin really needs moisture to maintain all its properties and fresh appearance. What has Reishi got to do with this? Reishi is rich in polysaccharides that hydrate the skin. Hydration results in a reduction in the appearance of fine wrinkles. Hydration with Reishi extract is one way to maintain the youthful appearance of the skin.

Goodbye, unwelcome acne scars!

The consequences of sebaceous gland inflammation are never pleasant. It is usually relatively difficult to restore skin balance and get rid of acne scars. Vital mushrooms can appear as helpers in this case as well. Reishi inhibits the melanin-producing enzyme tyrosinase. It is useful in reducing pigmentation and discoloration of the skin, so it can literally make the scars almost disappear. Reishi really helps with vital, healed and radiant skin. And healthy skin does not respond with inflammation and other manifestations of fight: instead, it is beautiful. This is what the harmony of the skin looks like. Or skin in harmony?

A bit of health from nature?

Reishi mushrooms are new in the world of cosmetics, but in terms of their health benefits, they are a well-known and widely used natural treasure. The mushroom of immortality increases energy levels, can help with depression and fatigue. It supports the immune system, soothes inflammation, helps to restore the body's balance. It will probably soon become a versatile helper not only as part of a natural first aid kit, but also a cosmetic bag.

Ingredient of cosmetics: REISHI

Ingredient type: Hydration, antioxidant
Benefits: restores moisture loss, fights fine wrinkles, anti-aging, unifies, regenerates
Frequency of use: Reishi products can be used twice a day or as recommended for specific products
Works well: with other mushrooms, especially Shiitake and Maitake; plants that have anti-inflammatory and soothing effects
Do not use with: Reishi mushrooms are safe even in combination with other substances

Summary: Why does Reishi help the skin?

A pile of beta-glucans that quickly soothe dry and itchy skin. These can get even to places where other active substances do not penetrate. The result is regeneration and healing in those places where other ingredients do not reach. Deep hydration can reduce the appearance of fine lines and first wrinkles, and Reishi's antioxidant properties help reduce swelling, redness, scaling and irritation. Reishi can quickly become a popular rejuvenating ingredient in natural cosmetics – its benefits will also be used by sensitive skin, which tolerates this medicinal mushroom very well.
Reishi. In short, strong in properties, but with softness even for the most sensitive skin. This looks like an interesting step in a beauty routine that we'll hear more about!
