In the world of beauty, there are always new trends and miracle cures that promise to fight skin aging and improve skin health. However, one ingredient that has been known for a long time and is becoming more and more important is isoflavones. In this blog post, we'll show you why isoflavones are so important in facial care and how you can reap their benefits.
Was sind Isoflavone?
Isoflavones are natural plant compounds found in many legumes such as soy, chickpeas, lentils and also in red clover. They are known for their hormone-like effects in the body and are often referred to as phytoestrogens. This means that they act in a similar way to the female hormone estrogen and can thus help to balance the hormone balance.
Isoflavones in facial care
The benefits of isoflavones in facial care are many. For example, a 2011 study showed that isoflavones can help increase collagen production in the skin. Collagen is an important component of the skin, which is responsible for its elasticity and tone. So, by increasing collagen production, the skin can look firmer and more youthful.
Isoflavones also have an antioxidant effect. This means that they can help protect skin cells from free radicals produced by pollution, sunlight, and other factors. Free radicals can accelerate skin aging and lead to fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation spots.
How you can benefit from isoflavones
To benefit from the benefits of isoflavones in facial care, there are several options. One option is to use skin care products that contain isoflavones. For example, there are creams, serums and masks that contain isoflavones as an important ingredient. In our Nuus Booster you will find red clover extract as an important ingredient. We have made a conscious decision to use red clover extract especially for the 3. cycle phase in our booster, because after ovulation the level of estrogen in the body naturally decreases. Red clover is a well-known phytoestrogen that can increase the natural level of estrogen in the body and thus bring the hormonal balance back into balance. By increasing estrogen levels, the skin can be better moisturized even after ovulation, making it look firmer and more youthful.
Another option is to supplement your diet with foods rich in isoflavone
Soybeans are a particularly good source of isoflavones. Other foods that contain isoflavones include chickpeas, lentils, red beans, and peanuts. Flaxseed, oatmeal, and certain vegetables such as broccoli and spinach may also contain small amounts of isoflavones.
Isoflavones are an important ingredient in facial care that can help improve skin health and slow down the aging process. Whether it's by using isoflavone-rich skincare products or supplementing your diet with isoflavone-rich foods, there are several ways to reap the benefits of isoflavones.
