When you think of caviar, you immediately think of an extravagant delicacy once reserved for royalty. But, did you know that it also has skin health benefits?
Caviar is basically the raw eggs of the sturgeon fish. Does that mean you need to put raw eggs on your face? Not exactly. Some spas do offer facials using the raw fish eggs; that’s not usually how caviar is used as a beauty product. The extract of the caviar is actually the one being used in caviar skin care products.
Here are just some of its many benefits.
Caviar is rich in amino acids which help rebuild skin cells. These same amino acids also prevent skin fatigue and aging, which gives your skin a more energized, youthful, and healthier glow. And because the cell structure of the human skin is quite similar to that of caviar, the skin experiences a boost in production of collagen when applied on the skin. And not just any kind of collagen, but a high-quality one. The boost in collagen production delays the skin aging process.
Hydrating and Moisturizing
Amino acids are essential for keeping the human skin as hydrated and moisturized as possible. Caviar is made up of 50% to 70% water whose amino acids have similarities with the ones found on the human body. The similarities make it much easier for the water in caviar to be absorbed by the skin keeping it hydrated at all times.
Provides Skin Protection
Caviar is made up of up to 70% water, creating a barrier to the damaging elements such as pollution, dehydration, and climate, as well as the harmful effects of the UVA and UVB rays. It is also a rich source of antioxidants, which further strengthens the barrier against these elements to help inhibit skin aging and damage.
Caviar may not be the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to beauty products, but the fact remains that it has powerful moisturizing and anti-aging properties. So, the next time you see a beauty product with caviar as its main ingredient, why don’t you give it a try? You never know. It might just be the best skin care product for you.
