For centuries Kombucha has been used in Asia and Europe as a power house antioxidant probiotic tea. So what is this Kombucha and how is it derived?
Kombucha is a bacteria and yeast culture made by adding specific strains of bacteria, yeast and sugar to black or green tea, then allowing it to ferment for a week or more… I see bubbles!
During this process, bacteria and yeast form a mushroom-like film on the surface of the liquid. This is why Kombucha is also known as “mushroom tea.”
Kombucha is rich in antioxidants, probiotics, amino acids, enzymes, and vitamins. We all know how wonderful these benefits are for our body, our gut, and our skin.
If we listen, our skin actually speaks to us – and we all know what we consume is a reflection on our skin! Many skin conditions have been cited to have connections with digestive health, such as acne, rosacea, dermatitis, eczema, etc.
What’s so great about Kombucha is that it helps build a healthier stronger relationship with your gut and your skin = glowing radiance skin.
So how does this add any benefits when used skincare? Could this be the next secret weapon to combat aging?
The secret is Kombucha feeds the fibroblast cells in our skin that begin to deteriorate with time, hence we lose the elasticity and that youthful bounce back… Everything we don’t want!
That’s where Kombucha plays a huge role to help tighten and firm the skin.
As an active ingredient in skincare it combats the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles…
… and it’s been clinically shown to improve clarity, skin radiance and brightness while decreasing skin roughness.
Seems like this ancient elixir could help our skin look younger.
