When you think of bamboo, you may think of sweeping mountains in Asia or cuddly pandas munching on tender shoots-but do you ever think of bamboo as a supplement to your health? This ancient, woody plant has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries as a treatment for infections such as toxemia, as well as for ailments such as heat buildup, constipation, obesity, and high blood pressure.

Bamboo doesn’t just improve your internal health-it can also work wonders for your skin.

Bamboo is the largest natural source of silica, a mineral your skin uses to hold in moisture and smooth out wrinkles. As we get older, our need for silica increases, but our ability to produce it naturally diminishes; therefore, using products with bamboo can be very beneficial. Bamboo has been known to help even out skin tone, improve skin complexion, and lessen skin inflammation. It can also help to support the rebuilding of the skin’s natural support structure, which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Trivani has taken advantage of the great effects bamboo can have on your skin by including bamboo extract in its Day Protection Serum and Night Repair Crème. These two fabulous products can help you achieve the appearance of youth with smoother, younger-looking skin that will have people talking.
