We know this sounds odd but bear with us here. Turns out we can now add yet another item from our pantry shelves to the number of edible ingredients in our skin care.

How do mushrooms benefit your skin?

The process of implementing these fungi into your skincare routine is not as out there as you might think. We're not suggesting you go out into the woods digging for truffles, but check out these mushroom benefits and discover just how these former-pizza toppings can help your skin in the long run.

Powerful anti-inflammatory & anti-redness properties

Possibly the biggest and best benefit of these guys is their anti-inflammatory properties. With such a potent ability, these mushrooms can help improve the appearance of eczema, rosacea and acne. NuFace NuBody Hydrating Leave-on Gel Primer contains hyaluronic acid and an exclusive Phytomoist Complex that deliver softness and hydration to the skin, and improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

The same properties that help with inflammation also help visibly reduce the appearance of redness in your complexion.

Anti-aging abilities

With so many benefits, mushrooms may be on the brink of being labeled a superfood. Studies have found that mushrooms contain the highest dietary amount of two of the most potent antioxidants. Antioxidants help neutralize the free radicals that our bodies produce.

Free radicals are the by-product of oxidation—a process our bodies use to turn the food we consume into energy. This oxidation process can be detrimental long-term, so including antioxidants in your routine can be beneficial not only for the health of your skin but also for the well-being of the rest of your body as well!

Replace both your SPF and primer with Murad Invisiblur Protecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30. This primer protects, corrects and perfects while also providing anti-aging benefits to the skin! Mushroom peptides help regulate the production of elastin and collagen and visibly reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Who knew that something so powerful has been sitting on top of our favorite American dinner this whole time? Discover more products with mushrooms on the SkinStore website today!
