Japanese Skin Care Ingredients That Make Women Ageless
For many years, the special ingredient used in Japanese skin care unique remained a secret kept from the rest of the world; but not any more because that ingredient has recently been discovered by westerners. Japanese women are known to age gracefully due to their life style, diet and this wonderful ingredient.
The name of this secret ingredient is Phytessence Wakame; this is a unique sea kelp that had remained a well guarded secret to the Japanese women ageless beauty for years. It helps to make the skin soft, smooth and young looking.
Its major function is to inhibit the activity of a harmful enzyme called hyaluronidase; this enzyme breaks down hyaluronic acid in the body. Hyaluronic acid is a vital component of the skin that promotes tissue repair. If the enzyme breaks down hyaluronic acid; the collagen and elastic fibers lose their 'glue'. Thus leading to the formation of dark circles around the eyes and loss of youthful appearance.
Phytessence Wakame is a potent antioxidant highly regarded in the Japanese skin care industry for its ability to keep the skin youthful. It is also proven to increase the elasticity of the skin; it heals irritated and dry skin.
Studies also show that Wakame contains 15 times more calcium than milk; it also contains other important minerals such as sodium, iron, potassium and calcium which all help to balance the skin's moisture level, and keep it looking firm and healthy. Its high content of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12 helps to sooth inflammation of the skin.
It is proven that Wakame contains sulfated polyfucose, a potent ingredient that helps to protect the skin against damage from UV rays and other environmental pollutions.
