WHY BEANS IN SKIN CARE WILL BECOME YOUR NEW FAVORITE

There are many different ailments and conditions that our skin can suffer from, ailments that affect our self-esteem and self-image, which can be incredibly frustrating. Knowing how to deal with skin redness, acne, gray and dull skin or even wrinkles or dry skin can be difficult, and we totally understand that! It can be tempting to look for quick fixes to these common skin problems with unnecessary gadgets and new treatments, but often the best plan is to turn to all-natural ingredients.

This is where soybeans come into play, and in many cultures and families, soybeans are a large part of their diet, which has been shown to have good results for the skin. But beyond eating them, not many people know that the benefits of soybeans can also be seen when we use them on our skin. Some of the benefits of using soybeans in skin products include evening out skin tone, reducing redness and also increasing the production of collagen. Soybeans offer huge beauty benefits, whether you have them on your plate or in your face cream. We'll take a closer look at why we think this ingredient could become a new favorite for many.

WHAT IS SOYBEAN EXTRACT AND WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?

Before we get into the benefits of soybeans for your skin, let's look at what the ingredient actually is and what it consists of. When we talk about soybeans in skin care, it is usually soybean extract that we see on the ingredients list. This extract comes directly from soybeans and is a natural and powerful antioxidant that acts as both a soothing and regenerating agent for your skin.

Soybean extract is derived directly from soybeans, and with all the benefits we see it having for our skin, it's no surprise that it has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine. Soy's lipids, proteins, and vitamins are known to have moisturizing properties while promoting an even skin tone, softer skin, and fighting signs of aging. It is even said that workers in factories handling soybeans were known to have particularly soft and youthful hands with an even skin tone precisely because they regularly handled soybeans.

Soybeans in skin care have now become a permanent part of the cosmetics and skin care world and are an important ingredient in many different anti-aging skin care products.

ARE SOY BEANS GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN?

Soybeans are a relatively new ingredient that we're seeing popping up in various skin care products, and we have every reason to believe that it's only going to become more and more common in the future. People are often skeptical of new ingredients and wonder if soy is really good for the skin or if it's just a new trend. However, soybeans undoubtedly come with many benefits for your skin on various levels.

During the fermentation of the soybeans, nutrients such as fatty acids and amino acids are broken down into different substances. It is through the proteins and amino acids in soybeans that the ingredient gives us its anti-aging properties by increasing firmness and elasticity in the skin that is gradually lost over time, as well as speeding up the production of collagen.

The process involves an even greater variety of components, including carbohydrates, minerals, fiber and proteins. This is one of the reasons why it is preferred among vegetarians and vegans as a plant-based protein source. Once the process is complete, soybeans will be loaded with antioxidants, the two most important being genistein and daidzein. They are known for their ability to regulate our hormone levels, improve bone and cardiovascular health, and provide benefits against cancer.

WHAT DOES SOYBEANS CONTAIN?

When we look at skin care products that contain soybeans as an ingredient, it will often be listed as soybean extract, fermented soybeans, or soybean oil. This is ultimately just different ways soybeans have been processed and different ways the ingredient is used, depending on the product it is used in. However, the benefits and content of the ingredient will remain the same.

Soybeans are filled with omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, manganese and vitamins. With the help of the fatty acids in the beans, you will be able to easily rebuild collagen in the skin and at the same time increase the elasticity of the skin, reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles and also work to prevent the formation of new ones. In addition to these fatty acids, soybeans contain vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that builds up the skin's own barrier and protects against free radicals. Free radicals are known to cause signs of early aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles and skin discoloration. With the help of a stronger skin barrier, you want to lock in moisture and thus also achieve healthier and younger skin.

Vitamin E has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties that can prevent redness and swelling of the skin. These anti-inflammatory properties will also help to reduce the visibility of acne, scars and spots in the skin that come from various skin conditions such as rosacea.

In other words, there are a number of different benefits to be seen in soybeans and what they can add to skin products, whether you choose to use it in skin products such as serum, face cream or body lotion.
