BAMBOO In Skincare?!?

Have you ever tried bamboo skincare? Would you ever use that product again? When I think of bamboo, I think of snack that giant pandas munch on. But bamboo can also be used in skincare. In fact, bamboo is a popular star ingredient in korean skincare because of itsโ€™ many benefits: ๐—›๐˜†๐—ฑ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด Bamboo is made up of 70% natural silica, making it the richest natural source of essential minerals. Silica binds to the protein molecules that contribute to the skinโ€™s ability to hold on to water, something people with dehydrated skin may struggle with. ๐—”๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐˜…๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜ ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜€ Almost all plants have antioxidants properties and, while bamboo falls under the category, it isnโ€™t the strongest out there. If youโ€™re specifically looking for an antioxidant, green tea is a classic. ๐—ช๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—›๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด Bamboo is a beneficial ingredient for those who suffer from acne-prone skin as it has been proven to promote wound healing. The outer layer of the skin acts as a barrier against bacteria, grease, and pollution. These can clog pores and triggers inflammation, resulting in the formation of acne. Pollution can also weaken the skin barrier making it prone to more inflammations and irritations. Bamboo extract can leave the skin with a greater strength and firmness, which is perfect for a damaged skin barrier and acne-prone skin. ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ In traditional Chinese medicine, bamboo was often used on cuts and wounds to promote would healing. Basically, it was used to make cuts and infections heal faster!

i have that toner. i got it in the first picky box. itโ€™s a no for me. itโ€™s basically water and not very hydrating for me. If I had to use it, Iโ€™d use it as a mist in between layers or something to freshen up during the day
