SILK COCOONUpdate: 3/25/2017
Every woman desires beauty. They look for whatever can keep their face young. Today, a new healthy skin-care method, which has been passed down generations by Chinese ancestors to keep skin smooth and blemish free, is called as silk cocoons.
What are silk cocoons?
The name “silk cocoon” usually refers to mulberry silk cocoons. A silk cocoon is a small and scrotiform protection layer woven by silkworms. There are several kinds of silk cocoons, most of which are white or soft yellow and have oval or round shapes. A regular silk cocoon has a length of about 3-4 centimeters. It is used by people to cleanse and exfoliate skin for the purpose of beauty.
Effects on Your Skin
Silk cocoons contain natural proteins, animo acids and collagen which are excellent for anti-aging and keeping skin supple and nourished, removing blemishes and dead cells.
When gently massaged your face, those luxuriously soft silk cocoons release Sericin that is essential to the human body, which helps make your complexion clearer and smoother with continued usage.
Sericin is a protein that is part of the natural silk produced by caterpillars of the silkworm. Serricin is akin to human skin component and consists of 18 amino acids. Sericin is considered effective in the treatment and prevention of acne, allergies and skin irritation, and it suppresses the production of melanin, which causes a discoloration of the skin (pigmentation).
Statistics show that UV damage and scarring have improved by 20% after using the silk cocoon for a month or so.
How to Use Silk Cocoons?
1.Soak it in lukewarm water for about 3 minutes.
2.When it becomes soaked and soft, place it on fingertips through opening
3.Massage face with it gently in circular motion
Before using, perform the test to make sure that there is no allergy to silk.
During massage, do not press your finger on the cocoon.
Do not use on damaged areas of the skin and in areas where the skin is thin (around the eyes).
