Snow Mushroom Skincare
Tremello fuciformis is a species of snow mushroom. It looks more like a fuzzy marine sponge than like a fungus. Snow mushrooms are gelatinous, tropical mushrooms used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine and cooking.
It is making its rounds in the skin care industry thanks to its incredible 100% naturally-occurring skin-boosting properties. It is considered the natures-own hyaluronic acid. Snow mushrooms have polysaccharides (a pile of sugar molecules with water-binding properties) which helps hydrate your skin by binding moisture on the surface.
Well, a snow mushroom can hold 500 times its weight in moisture, and the particles are tiny enough to get into your skin. The result is natural skin “firming” from the efficient hydration. This may lead to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Not only is it a powerful moisturizer, it may help to promote the production of collagen and improve the skins elasticity. Another advantage snow mushrooms have to offer your skin is that they are gentle on even the most sensitive of skins.
What Does Snow Mushroom Do For Skin?
1. Works as a moisturizer
Many ingredients are already known for doing a good job at moisturizing. You may hesitate about switching to Snow Fungus because of its moisturizing effects when you are already using a more famous ingredient such as Hyaluronic Acid. But snow fungus is not called “the moisturizing magnet” just because of its moisturizing qualities.
Not only does snow fungus increase your skins humidity, it helps pull the moisture deeper into the skin, ensuring your skin is moisturized from within. This allows for better skin moisture retention, ultimately leading to a reduction in overall dryness of your skin.
2. Provides Anti-aging benefits
It is not surprising so many people like Snow Fungus, as it is very high in collagen, promoting the production of collagen. Collagen is the key to anti-aging, as it is a naturally produced protein that prevents premature aging and helps to keep skin looking youthful. Without adequate amounts of collagen in the skin, the skin loses its elasticity and can easily develop fine lines and wrinkles. Snow fungus helps to boost your collagen production, making your skin stronger and more elastic.
3. Has Wound Healing Powers
Snow fungus has been consumed orally in order to reduce the temperature of the body if you are experiencing a fever. When applied topically, snow fungus still has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which helps restore proper temperature and balance in the skin. The healing powers of this magic herb are due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities. Snow fungus picks up the inflammation in your skin as injuries occur or virus infiltration occurs, and supports your healing process by neutralizing free radicals caused by stress.
4. Contributes to Skin Brightening
Snow Fungus inhibits the melanin production that is responsible for freckles, long-lasting scars, and uneven skin tones. The effectiveness of snow fungus for whitening and illuminating the skin cannot be compared with any other comparable ingredient known to lighten skin as no other ingredient suppresses melanin production as effectively as snow fungus.
