 Stem Cells And Snail Mucus, Bizzaire Skincare Ingredients That Really Work By Barbies Beauty Bits

 Award winning beauty blogger barbies Beauty bits

As a beauty editor, it is my job to stay on top of all things BEAUTYful, especially in the skincare and aesthetic industry. This niche is one of my favorites for advancements in skincare, whether with at-home skincare gadgets, cosmetic treatments, or cutting-edge skincare ingredients.

And today, I am going to be talking about two buzz-worthy and slightly bizarre skincare ingredients that have intrigued me. One is stem cells, and the other is snail mucus, aka snail mucin. Now I know the first thought to many when you hear this is the thought of some crazy horror movie. But there is nothing scary here.

For this post, I partnered up with Glowyskin.Care to try out some Shidoa skincare products that included these two buzziest skincare ingredients.

So, if you want to find out why you need to add snail slime and stem cells to your skincare routine, continue reading about "Stem Cells And Snail Mucus, Advanced Skincare Ingredients And How They Work"

Snail Slime Has Slid Into Skincare
Snail mucus, also known as snail mucin, is one of the most trusted skincare ingredients in the K-beauty world. And while there may be an initial yuck factor involved, you will soon be sure to get over that when you hear about all of the tremendous anti-aging benefits that snail mucin can offer.

What The Heck Is Snail Mucin, And Where Does It Come From
Snail slime began with the ancient Greeks and was later rediscovered by Chilean farmers who noticed their hands were softer after touching snail secretion. So what the heck is slithering skincare substance? Simply put, it’s the excretion that snails naturally create to protect themselves. It's made up of properties like glycoproteins, glycolic acid, and hyaluronic acid all of which have long-documented benefits for the skin. And no worries, there are various “cruelty-free” methods of snail production and slime extraction, making it widely acceptable in the skincare industry.

The Many Benefits Of Snail Mucin For The Skin
This powerful ingredient is a multitasker skincare ingredient. It can do so much, all while helping your other skincare ingredients to penetrate the skin further. See some of the many benefits of snail slime for the skin below.

Snail Mucin Promotes Collagen Production: Snail mucin is secreted when the snail feels stressed. It consists of natural growth factors meant to repair and protect by triggering collagen production and new cell growth.

Snail Mucin Moisturizes The Skin: Fitting the name, snail slime is highly moisturizing and is fantastic at repairing damaged, dehydrated skin.

Snail Mucin Soothes Skin Irritation: Snail secretion contains Allantoin, a healing component that calms and smooths the skin while stimulating cell regeneration.

Snail Mucin Is Enriched With Vitamins, Minerals, And Antioxidants: Microfiltrate snail slime contains peptides, which are great at aiding in collagen production while minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. It also includes antioxidants such as vitamins A and E, which are a must to helping restore the skin from oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

So Where Can I Find Skincare Products With Microfiltrate Snail Slime
As mentioned earlier, I partnered up with Glowyskin.Care to try out some of their Shidoa skincare products. If you're looking to use snail mucin as a multi-purpose anti-ager, try Shidoa Snail & Hyaluronic Face Cream. This product contains other well-known active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid- a star skincare ingredient naturally occurring in the human body.

Hyaluronic acid attracts up to 1000 times its weight in moisture; add that to the snail slime, and you are in for an ultra-moisturizing treatment that helps to keep skin hydrated, plump, and more radiant. It even visibly softens fine lines and wrinkles without breaking the bank.

Stem Cells For Younger Looking Skin
Yep, this is another brilliant, must-have skincare ingredient that dermatologists have raved about for years for antiaging.  But no worries, unlike stem cells used to treat medical issues, you will not be rubbing someone's stem cells on your face, as the stem cells I am talking about are derived from plants.

Similar to human stem cells, plant stem cells contain proteins and amino acids, two powerhouse ingredients for skin rejuvenation. And according to  Dr. Michele Green, board-certified dermatologist, stem cells naturally have antioxidant properties that nourish skin cells, promoting cell turnover and increasing collagen production and elastin.  

If there is a magic potion that can delay skin aging and protect it from further damage, it is a powerful antioxidant. Not only are they super anti-inflammatory, but they’re also excellent at neutralizing, repairing, and preventing free radical damage (the number one cause for premature aging).

How To Incorporate Stem Cells Into Your Skincare Routine
Now that you understand how stem cells and antioxidants can serve as a line of defense against free radical damage, it's time to start guarding your skin with some stem cell skincare products like Shidoa Stem Cell Face Cream.

This face cream is excellent at protecting your face from external factors and creates a more youthful look because it goes into the skin’s cellular level.  Delivering moisture and reparative agents to where they need to go.

A Bonus Tip: Dead skin cells lay on the top of the skin and act as a barrier against skincare products. Hence for better results of your Shidoa Stem Cell face cream, I suggest exfoliating to remove any dead skin cells creating an unobstructed pathway to the layers of your skin.

Show Your Eyes Some Love With A Stem Cell Eye Cream
You look in the mirror, and what are those crinkly areas around the eyes that you see? Crow's feet! While we may say the eyes are the windows to our souls, they present a clear picture of something else; premature aging, as unfortunately, this thin, delicate skin around the eyes is one of the first to show signs of aging.

But no worries as Shidoa Stem Cells Eye Contour is here to the rescue. This 100% natural stem cell eye cream has been created with an extraordinary AM and PM formula, which is indicated to help firm and tighten the delicate eye area while helping to smooth the appearance of crow’s feet and fine lines for a more awake, lifted complexion.   

For ultimate results I like to keep this eye cream in my skincare fridge. Not only does storing this eye cream in the fridge help it to last longer, but the cooling sensation is perfect for bagging puffiness and brightening a tired appearance.

So there you have it, some bizarre skincare ingredients that actually work! Add that to bee and snake venom, magnetic clay, cactus oil, Cica and I think I've more than dipped my toe in some unique skincare ingredients.
