I had no idea shiitake mushrooms had so many beauty-enhancing and rejuvenating benefits for the skin until I read about them on BellaSugar...
Many skin care products—particularly anti-aging products—now contain shiitake extracts because the 'shrooms are thought to:
- Reduce inflammation
- Increase elasticity of the skin
- Encourage faster skin renewal
- Provide antioxidants to protect skin
- Block skin aging proteins
- Help fade spotting from the sun and acne
