I’ve always liked to drizzle a few drops of truffle oil on my pizza to give it that added pungent, earthy flavour that makes your mouth water. Recently, I’ve taken my obsession with this rare golden elixir one step further by making it a prominent part of my skincare routine. You may be surprised to learn that these little mushrooms, which grow only at the roots of trees in certain parts of Umbria, Italy, in the winter months, are loaded with moisturizing fatty acids and antioxidants that keep the complexion young and glowing.
Fatty acids are some of the most underrated heroes in the skincare world. They are some of the building blocks that make up your skin’s protective barrier, the natural shield that keeps moisture locked into the skin. As a result, these fatty acids help skin stay well hydrated and retain its soft and supple appearance all year long.
Truffle oil is also a rich source of antioxidants, particularly Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). SOD is an enzyme that targets and destroys the Superoxide radical, the absolute worst kind of free radical. The Superoxide radical is extremely dangerous, both to the health of your skin and body, because it is the primary trigger of inflammation, which is one of the underlying causes of premature wrinkles, dark spots and metabolic diseases, such as cancer. SOD neutralises it before it has the chance to wreak the damage, keeping your skin free from wrinkles and your body free from deadly diseases.
Needless to say, I don’t use truffle oil straight from the bottle; the culinary kind is simply too greasy and not at all suitable for use on the skin. Instead, I get my skincare fix from Skinfood Truffle Age Defying Serum, a luxurious anti-aging formula that sinks quickly into my skin. Its texture is so lightweight because the oil is trapped into tiny capsules that break open once they’re rubbed all over the skin, a clever technology that has the added benefit of delivering the nutrients right where they’re needed.
I notice a subtle difference in the feel and look of my skin right after application: not only it feels much softer to the touch, but my fine lines look diminished and my entire complexion is glowing. But, as is the case with all anti-aging products, the wrinkle-fighting benefits appear only weeks later. After a month of use, my skin has become a little firmer and more elastic, a clear sign that its antioxidants benefits have been hard at work on my skin.
Who knew that this rare delicacy could perform such miracles on the skin?
