In addition to its famous antioxidant effects, do you know what are the benefits of grape seed extract on skincare?
What are the benefits of grape seed extract on skincare?
1. Increase skin elasticity
Grape seed has a dual effect on the skin. On the one hand, it can promote the formation of moderate cross-linking of collagen. And on the other hand, it acts as an effective free radical scavenger, preventing the skin from “over-cross-linking”, thereby preventing the appearance of skin wrinkles and vesicles, and keeping the skin soft and smooth.
As a person ages, the free radicals in the body’s skin will be damaged, and the ability to resist the outside world will decline. The stronger the UV ability, the faster the body will age. Grape seeds are also a kind of beauty and skin care product that can be anti-oxidant and scavenge free radicals, so eating grape seed extract can make the skin better and play a role in wrinkle removal.
3. Whiten the skin
Nowadays, human skin will be damaged by ultraviolet rays and various cosmetics. And free radicals are also generated in this process, which will lead to metabolic disorders or the death of a large number of cells on the skin’s surface. There are many harmful substances that cannot be excreted from the body, resulting in the precipitation of skin pigment, accelerated skin aging, and dull skin color. Grape seeds can promote the metabolism of new cells, making the skin whiter and more tender.
4. Spot removal
Grape seed oil is one of the most potent free radical scavengers ever discovered. Its anti -free radical oxidation capacity is 20 times that of vitamin C and 50 times that of vitamin E. It can eliminate all kinds of spots such as skin color spots, melasma, butterfly spots
Free radicals attack normal skin cells, causing significant damage to the skin cells. When cell membranes are damaged, water is lost from them, causing dehydration in the skin. Grape seed extract can protect the new cells and retain water to achieve moisturizing effect.
6. Acne removal
Acne is caused by the accumulation of lipids and bacteria that damage the skin. Grape seeds extract can remove these harmful substances and make the skin smoother. It can also play a role in healing scars.
From the above information, we can see that grape seeds have many benefits for our skin. Therefore, if you want to get better skin, try using products that contain grape seed extract.
