Trending Adaptogenic Ingredients Today & How to Choose the Right Product

When shopping in the online beauty isles, the array of product and ingredients can sometimes become overwhelming. Generally, keeping the regimen simple and targeted for you and your lifestyle is an ideal focus. You may have seen the ingredient term "adaptogen" move it's way into the beauty pages. You may be pleasantly surprised.

Adaptogen ingredients are known immune boosters and have been studied for over a century by ground breaking scientists who addressed and bolstered the issues and of immunity and wound healing during WWI.

Some early studies during WW1 trialed ginger root, ginseng and schisandra extracts. Scientists showed an improvement in the physical health of military personnel, they were faster, stronger and could heal more rapidly when on tour. Today, we use adaptogens in nutritional ways to boost our immunity, for digestive health, liver function and for increased energy. In cosmetics, adaptogens are used for the improvement of suppleness of skin, skin microbiome and cell rejuvenation. 

Find detoxifying skin solutions that contain Korean ginseng for sensitive and aging skin in the up-trending beauty aisles. Astragalus is another adapto-ingredient that can improve dull or stressed skin - it is pro-circulation and balancing. Rhodiola is a favourite that can help to brighten and detoxify skin - a great addition to a day moisturizer. Now that online venues are first access to the latest skin nutritives, it's harder to get immersive in the sensory joys of cosmetic shopping that we have all come to enjoy. I hope these introductions to adaptogens makes you a smarty pants beauty face.
