Why Soy is Good for Your Skin

Skin care is a multibillion dollar industry. Literally hundreds of products are available to help your skin look its best. With so many choices, it’s easy for consumers to get confused on what to use.

So, how do you go about choosing a product that’s right for you? First, it’s important to remember that great skin care isn’t just about using the product. It’s also about the process.

Cleansing the skin is an important first step in skin care. But what if you suffer from dry, oily, combination, eczema, psoriasis or acne-prone skin? Selecting a soy based cleanser is a great choice for different skin types because it removes dirt, oil, and bacteria without striping skin of essential moisture.

Beauty experts warn against cleansing your face too often, but with a natural soy based cleanser, you don’t have to worry about that. Maybe you spend a lot of time outdoors or just prefer to clean your face throughout the day. The natural emollients in soy won’t dry skin out, no matter how often you cleanse your face. A soy based cleanser can also be used on other parts of the body with similar benefits.

Follow up with a moisturizer or lotion designed to replace what the environment takes away. Soy based moisturizers take the guesswork out of skin care because they are designed for all skin types. Soy reduces blotchiness and discoloration, enhances skin’s elasticity, and controls oil production.

Soy based moisturizers are also full of antioxidants, which stimulates the production of collagen, something our bodies don’t produce enough of as we age. Collagen gives our skin that youthful, smooth, and wrinkle-free appearance.

Soy is naturally bountiful in other vitamins that promote anti aging properties and helps skin retain its moisture and oil balance. It also contains Vitamin A, which plays a pivotal role in cell renewal. Vitamin A is also one of a few vitamins that can be absorbed directly in the skin.

Getting enough sleep and proper nutrition also play vital roles in skin health, however, it’s hard to achieve those with hectic lifestyles. Using a soy based skin care routine can help us look our best even if we aren’t getting enough sleep or eating right.
