This is the BIZARRE ingredient taking over the beauty world

Rebecca O'Keeffe

A common ingredient in the kitchen.

There’s nothing I love more than an exciting new beauty trend.

From the weird to the wonderful (and everything in-between), there’s always something exciting happening in the world of beauty.

The latest trend sweeping the land of skincare? Mushrooms.

Yes, really.

Don’t get me wrong, I adore mushrooms in pasta, but I was initially skeptical about the idea of using it on my skin.

However, after a little bit of research, I am totally sold on the mushroom idea.

Scientists have proven that mushrooms can boost a person’s immune system.

Mushrooms have been used in Asia for centuries as a form of medicine.

It was used to aid arthritis, allergies, bronchitis and even various forms of cancer.

Madness, I know.

And lately, mushrooms have been spotted in loads of different cult beauty products.

Why though?

Mushrooms are a fantastic anti inflammatory, so they’ll reduce any puffiness in the face. Yes please.

Here are my favourite mushroom products:
