The Reishi mushroom, also known as ganoderma lucidium or lingzhi, has been a staple in Eastern medicine for many years. It has these potent healing properties that we incorporate in TES Beauty products.
It is a powerful antioxidant that has various skincare benefits:
1. Fades acne scars and pigmentation
It inhibits the melanin-producing enzyme tyrosinase which makes it an excellent remedy to reduce acne scars, skin discolouration, and hyperpigmentation.
2. Deeply hydrates
The polysaccharides in the Reishi mushroom provide humectant with deeply hydrating benefits essential for making the skin soft and smooth
3. Fends off fine lines and wrinkles
Loaded with antioxidants, they prevent free radicals from binding with healthy cells, protecting and supporting healthy looking skin.
4. Reduces inflammation and redness
Immune boosting adaptogenic properties result in soothed, calmed skin as well as reduces redness
5. Makes the skin less adaptive to environmental stressors
Your body’s natural store of ceramide depletes over time and when it does, your skin can start to look more irritated, wrinkled, or dehydrated.
By restoring your body’s supply of ceramides with Reishi, your skin becomes less reactive to the stress from the environment.
