Finding effective solutions for aging skin is a complex problem that science has been attempting to address for decades. With the advent of retinoids, it was thought that anti-aging technology had peaked, but of course with the progression of our understanding of how our bodies age, new and exciting ingredients are always being developed. There has been a societal push to include more natural ingredients in skin care, and the recent development of Eggshell Membrane as a skin care additive is perhaps one of the most exciting and effective ways to combat the signs of aging.
What Are the Benefits of Eggshell Membrane?
You may be wondering: What is Eggshell Membrane? Simply put, it is the elastic membrane within an egg which protects the egg’s contents and separates it from the hard, outer shell. If you’ve ever peeled a boiled egg, you’ve seen eggshell membrane. It may seem like an unassuming part of what we consider food, but that membrane is absolutely packed with beneficial compounds that have been scientifically proven to fight inflammation, heal skin and reduce scars, and protect from external environmental factors. It’s even antimicrobial!
Eggshell Membrane Reduces Inflammation
The most drastic effect of Eggshell Membrane is its ability to reduce inflammation. In skincare terms, inflammation is more of a blanket term that includes any sort of irritation, adverse reaction, or the breakdown of healthy cell processes, all things that happen naturally as we age, or due to the use of less than ideal products. Basically, Eggshell Membrane naturally and effectively reduces these reactions by soothing the skin and boosting collagen production, which further protects your skin from additional damage while helping to heal damage already present.
Eggshell Membrane Visibly Reduces Fine Lines
Eggshell Membrane has also been proven to visibly reduce the appearance of lines and imperfections in the skin, which is an additional benefit of the collagen-boosting properties. Youthful skin is packed with natural collagen, and exposure to sun, wind, pollution, harsh cleansers, and aging all work together to diminish your collagen content. It’s not enough to simply put the collagen in the skin, the skin needs to be protected from further damage and encouraged to produce its own collagen, which is exactly what Eggshell Membrane has been proven to do.
Eggshell Membrane Prevents Loss of Moisture
In addition to soothing skin and boosting collagen production, Eggshell Membrane also has incredible effects on your skin’s ability to stay hydrated. By protecting the outermost layer, your skin can maintain moisture more effectively, which helps your skin appear smooth, hydrated, and youthful. Using a moisturizer is important, but using a moisturizer that not only hydrates but also prevents the loss of moisture is a much more effective way to take care of your skin.
