spend a lot of money to buy whitening skin care products in summer, but there are many kinds of skin care products on the market, and the quality is uneven. Some whitening products even contain harmful substances, which can not only stimulate the skin, but also cause skin allergy. In fact, many common ingredients in life have whitening effect. Let’s learn about skin whitening assistant sesame.
sesame seeds are sweet in taste and flat in nature; they enter the liver, kidney, lung and spleen meridians. Sesame has the effect of tonifying blood and eyesight, benefiting liver and hair, strengthening body and anti-aging. Su Dongpo, a great poet in the Song Dynasty, also believed that eating sesame seeds helped prolong life. Sesame is rich in vitamin E, which can prevent the harm of lipid peroxide to the skin, counteract or neutralize the accumulation of free radicals in cells, make the skin white and moist, and prevent all kinds of skin inflammation. Recently, a study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science found that sesamol in sesame has antioxidant and anti melanin effects. The antioxidant and anti melanin effects of sesamol and its positive control compounds (arbutin and kojic acid) were systematically analyzed. The total antioxidant activity of sesamol was determined by scavenging diphenyl bitter acyl radical and iron ion reduction / antioxidant capacity. The results showed that the DPPH radical scavenging ability and Fe ^ 3 + reduction ability of sesamol were higher than those of the positive control group. In addition, sesamol also plays a whitening role by inhibiting mushroom tyrosinase and intracellular tyrosinase. In conclusion, sesamol has strong antioxidant and anti melanin effects. The nutritional value of
