Here's everything you need to know about wheat protein in skincare, and how it can bust your dimply skin.
What is Wheat Protein in Skincare?
Wheat protein is a ceramide-loaded skincare ingredient that can attract and hold onto moisture, helping to plump skin from within.
When wheat protein enters the skin, it inserts it with lipids and amino acids that plump up the skin as they attract moisture. In addition to filling out hollowness and fine lines, it provides the skin with a healthy source of hydration.
Compared to the likes of gold-tier actives like vitamin C, retinol (vitamin A), and collagen, wheat protein isn't that famous. While it makes an appearance in firming lotions and anti-aging serums, people generally don't talk about it enough. And yet, it's one of the best ingredients around for diminishing dimples.
Is Wheat Protein an Effective Cellulite Treatment?
Wheat protein plays an important role in water-retention function and barrier function in the outer layer of the skin. It prevents trans-epidermal water loss from occurring too quickly by holding onto water in the skin.
Since cellulite can appear much worse in a dehydrated state, due to it causing skin to become thinner and weaker, adequate hydration is crucial for make cellulite appear less visible. What's more, wheat protein can decrease free radicals in the skin that destroy collagen and elasticity -- those responsible for keeping skin firm, plump, and supple.
In addition, wheat protein holds skin cells firmly together in the upper skin layer, keeping fluid in the skin while protecting it from allergens and external aggressors.
Ultimately, wheat protein is an effective skincare ingredient for making skin look smoother and less dimpled. That's why our products are packed with it!
