When it comes to looking great, one of the biggest beauty factors is your hormones – estrogen, specifically.
Estrogen is known as the “beauty” hormone because it enhances every aspect of femininity – from beautiful body curves, to glowing skin, to gorgeous hair. In fact, studies show a direct correlation between a woman’s estrogen levels and her perceived attractiveness, health, and femininity.
Since estrogen levels start to decline during one’s mid-20s, it’s never too early to consider how your hormones are impacting your beauty routine.
Thanks to the latest crop of phytoestrogen-infused beauty products, there’s an easy way to maintain (or restore) your gorgeous glow. Unlike synthetic hormones, plant estrogens – known as phytoestrogens – are a safe and natural cosmetic ingredient. In fact, phytoestrogens are found in over 300 plants, including dozens of common foods like flaxseed, soybeans, sesame seeds, alfalfa, pomegranates, apples and apricots.
Applied topically, phytoestrogens can help boost collagen to give your skin a firm, plump, glowing appearance – something we all want!
Here are 5 phytoestrogen-infused beauty products for face and body to consider adding to your routine.
