Why can silymarin "eliminate" acne? Because silymarin has strong antioxidant capacity, its antioxidant capacity is 10 times that of vitamin E. after oxidation, the excess cortex of oily acne skin will produce secondary products such as oxidized squalene and oxidized free fatty acids, which play a key role in the formation of acne.
Silymarin can greatly reduce the production of oxidized sebum. On the one hand, it can reduce the decomposition of fatty acids from triglycerides. On the other hand, it can prevent the oxidation of sebum through its antioxidant capacity.
The formation of acne is also related to the excessive reproduction of bacteria and the generation of inflammation. Silymarin can inhibit bacterial adhesion and the formation of biofilm, so as to achieve effective bacteriostasis without drug resistance. In addition, silymarin has the best anti-inflammatory and wound healing promoting abilities among natural plant extracts, which can help skin heal, thus reducing the generation of acne marks.
The effects of anti-oxidation and bacteriostasis have been enough to make silymarin become the "mother of oil skin" and make the oil skin spend the summer safely. However, silymarin plays a far more important role in skin care. Because it can prevent collagen degradation, inhibit saccharification and provide light protection for the skin, silymarin shows skin care effects such as lightening spots, anti wrinkle, improving skin firmness and elasticity.
The main culprit of aging and yellowing skin and becoming a "yellow faced woman" is saccharification reaction. The carbohydrates we consume every day are decomposed into sugars through the digestive system, and the sugars are transported to the cells. Under the action of enzymes, the carbohydrates release energy through chemical reactions in the body, meeting the needs of the human body. When we were young, our metabolism was normal, and most of the carbohydrates we consumed were metabolized and would not accumulate in the body. With the growth of age, the metabolism slows down, the pressure of life and work increases, and the irregular living and eating habits, the sugar intake will not be metabolized immediately, but will accumulate in the body. Free sugars react with collagen in dermis without the action of enzymes to form some reversible primary "glycosylation products", and then form irreversible "advanced glycosylation end products", namely ages. The whole process is "glycosylation reaction".
With the gradual aggravation of collagen cross-linking, the solubility of collagen decreases, the insoluble collagen accumulates, and the permeability of skin tissue decreases, which hinders the exchange of nutrients and metabolites between cells, and eventually leads to the decline of skin elasticity, relaxation and wrinkles, the color of glycosylated collagen protein turns yellow, and the texture becomes brittle. With the continuous accumulation of ages, the skin turns yellow gradually. Aging, relaxation, wrinkles and yellowing of skin caused by "saccharification reaction" are irreversible reactions. Silymarin can inhibit the occurrence of "saccharification reaction", thus delaying aging and yellowing of skin.
