What is Adaptogenic Skincare?


Adaptogens are “super” plants, herbs, and mushrooms that can help improve the body’s response to stressors.They can be found in supplements, or food items. Adaptogens can ward off fatigue, boost endurance, and improve concentration. Other adaptogens help with feelings of relaxation or tranquillity. In short they adapt to all life's stressors ( pollution, oxidation, UV rays, etc.), so you can better fend them off.
