Pearl Skincare Routine
Posted on July 22 2019
While pearl has been a skincare staple in Asia for more than 2000 years, it’s a recent addition to Western beauty routines. This ancient remedy is making a comeback in trendy Korean beauty products. Studies prove its efficacy in healing skin, helping cell turnover, and enhancing the skin’s ability to develop new blood vessels. Azure combines pearl powder with other healing ingredients like charcoal and hyaluronic acid to create luxury products that are perfect to add to your daily routine.
How It Works
Pearls are small, shiny rocks pulled out of oysters. So how exactly is pearl incorporated in any skincare product? Pearls are finely ground creating what is known as either pearl extract, or more commonly, pearl powder, and is safe to use on dry and sensitive skin types. While pearl powder may seem like a bad idea for acne-prone skin, the ingredient is actually noncomedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores.
Pearl is the perfect ingredient to heal dry or scarred skin. Here’s how it works: studies have shown that the presence of antioxidants and amino acids in pearls help hydrate and moisturize the skin by preventing transepidermal water loss– the water on your skin that gets evaporated by the air resulting in dry skin. Since these molecules prevent moisture loss, they also help retain the elasticity in your skin, which is a sure-fire way to prevent aging.
Pearl has also been shown to slow the production of a hormone called tyrosinase. Tyrosinase is the hormone responsible for darkening the skin around an injury. As pearl extract can help slow this hormone down, it also helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and scars.
