Adaptogens & Skincare
adap·to·gens
| \ ə-ˈdap-tə-jəns\ | noun
1. nontoxic substances that increase the body’s ability to resist damaging effects of stress or restore normal physiological functioning (Annual Reviews | Annual Review of Pharmacology)

What does adaptogenic mean in skincare?

Adaptogenic ingredients from plants adapt their function to your body’s needs. So, what skin needs can these powerhouse adaptogens help with?

1. Strengthen the Natural Repair Cycle

As we grow older, weaker cells are often eliminated to protect us from harmful pathogens. Fortunately, adaptogens can enhance this natural repair cycle by increasing the body’s resistance to stressors. They also help prevent the exhaustive effects caused by inflammation without harming or disrupting normal physiological functions. With the help of adaptogens, our body’s healing and protective mechanisms can be strengthened, allowing us to feel better and stay healthier. (US National Library of Medicine1)

2. Protect from Environmental Stress
Our skin shields us from harmful pathogens and toxins, but exposure to stressors can weaken it. Adaptogens in skincare can improve resilience and reverse damage caused by UV rays, free radicals, and toxins by enhancing antioxidants, repairing cells, and strengthening the skin’s barrier. (US National Library of Medicine2)

3. Delay Natural Aging Progress
Aging is a natural process, but it often comes with visible changes in our skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and sagging. However, by incorporating adaptogens into our routine, we can enhance our body’s natural repair cycle, which leads to the continuous replacement and strengthening of fibrous tissue. This can help slow down the cellular turnover process and even repair some of the visible signs of aging. With adaptogens, we can take a proactive approach to maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin. (US National Library of Medicine3)
