Adaptogens: Nature's Balance for Your Skin

There is probably no need to discuss why it is useful and important to choose natural and clean cosmetics. But what is the best way to choose active ingredients? How to know what is really effective and how it affects your skin?

In this article, we want to introduce you to particularly effective and often found ingredients in cosmetics - adaptogens.

 What are adaptogens?

Adaptogens are specific plants, herbs and mushrooms that help the body adapt to external and internal stressors. You can take adaptogens by adding them to food or drink, or as a tincture. However, another great way to use them is in your face care products. Used externally, they have many different, but extremely beneficial effects on the skin. Some of the most popular adaptogens are pink radiole, turmeric, holy basil - but in this article let's discuss two popular adaptogens used in Hypha cosmetics - licorice root and ginseng.

Ginseng is said to help strengthen the body's immune system, and the same is true for the skin's immune system. Based on the philosophy of TCM, ginseng helps restore the balance of the skin, and its natural and gentle properties make it beneficial for almost all skin types and facial types. Ginseng can increase skin hydration, improve skin barrier function, increase skin blood flow, visually brighten darkened, uneven skin tone, and even help smooth fine lines. Basically, it's an all-natural multi-tool that your skin needs if you want glowing skin.

Considered one of the world's oldest herbs, it comes from the root of the licorice plant, licorice root is native to western Asia and southern Europe. Derived from the glycyrrhiza glabra plant, licorice has long been valued in Japan for its medicinal properties and health benefits. Licorice root extract helps brighten and soothe itchy and irritated skin. Licorice root extract is rich in antioxidants, so with regular use it can help brighten the skin and is suitable for use even on sensitive skin.

Who benefits from cosmetics with adaptogens?

Technically, anyone who works in a fast-paced environment and lives in a city can benefit from adaptogens. But more specifically, if stress tends to worsen the condition of your skin, adding facial products with adaptogens to your routine may benefit you because they work on the body's stress response system.

Although the majority of adaptogens used in the cosmetic industry are suitable for sensitive skin and should not cause allergies, it is very important that the products you choose, enriched with adaptogens, are dermatologically approved and suitable for sensitive skin.
