I've been experimenting with mushroom powders in skin care, and now you can, too!
The benefits of Reishi mushroom (Ling-zhi) have been studied in China for over 2000 years. This "Mushroom of Spiritual Potency" is traditionally used to promote longevity and vitality.
In so far as skin care is concerned, reishi are very high in a type of antioxidant glucose molecules known as beta-glucans, which make them valuable anti-inflammatory agents.
At the same time, they contain polysaccharides that can help to hydrate skin while gently fading dark marks/scars.
And, particularly notable, reishi can help our bodies synthesize ceramide -- the protective layer running over the surface of our skin made from sphingosine, a chain of carbon atoms with an amino acid attached to it. In more direct terms, this can help skin retain moisture in while blocking environmental stressors.
This dual extracted powder blends easily with water for use as a mask. Use it alone or blended with a light clay to help draw impurities away from the skin.
Please note: This product is offered for use in facial care. For use as a dietary supplement, please consult your health care provider for information specific to your individual needs, including suitability for internal use during pregnancy/nursing.
