Brown algae extract in the mask - strengthen skin metabolism

Maintaining youthful and healthy skin is a must-do for all skin types.

Many people are over the age of 25. If they have bad living habits, stay up late, have a lot of stress, eat unhealthy food, take care of their skin care, or use products that do not match their skin type, they will accelerate the aging of their skin.

The aging of the skin is divided into the epidermis and the dermis. The skin texture begins to become rough, dry, dull complexion, and pigment spots increase. This shows that the epidermis of the skin is aging. If there is no enough attention and maintenance at this time, the aging of the dermis will occur, and gradually enlarged pores, wrinkles, loose skin, and red blood streaks will appear.

Brown algae grows in the pure sea area with a visibility of 47 meters. The main effects of brown algae extract on the skin are as follows:

1. Anti-aging

Skin aging will cause changes in the gene expression level of the skin, thereby affecting the integrity of the ultrafine structure of the skin, causing skin dryness, sagging, and wrinkles. Brown algae extract can restore the expression value of special genes in skin fibroblasts, thereby improving the skin's barrier function and skin hydration, improving skin elasticity and reducing wrinkles.

2. Antioxidant

Brown algae extracts have antioxidant effects, which can be expressed through a variety of mechanisms, one of the main ways is the inhibition of tyrosinase activity. Tyrosinase is the rate-limiting enzyme in the formation of black spots on the face. Inhibiting the activity of tyrosinase can prevent the formation of black spots on the face. Brown algae has antioxidant effects and can inhibit the activity of tyrosinase at the same time.

3. Restore skin elasticity

A variety of MMPs inhibitors have been identified in brown algae and can be used as active ingredients in mask materials. The study of fucoidan is relatively in-depth, and it affects the metabolism of collagen through various mechanisms. In addition to inhibiting the activity of MMP-1, fucoidan can also increase the synthesis of type I procollagen, improve and enhance the skin condition. Fucoidan also has MMPs inhibitory activity, and it is expected to be used as a potential MMP inhibitor in functional cosmetics. It can effectively reduce the degradation of collagen in the dermis and reduce the appearance of skin wrinkles.

4. Instead of preservatives

Preservatives are often added to mask products to inhibit bacterial growth, but even the best preservatives can have adverse effects on the skin. Studies have found that ingredients extracted from brown algae can be used as plant preservatives.

Based on the above, brown algae extract can well regulate the ecological balance of the skin, strengthen the skin barrier from damage, and maintain skin stability.
