Melatonin, a hormone known mainly for regulating sleep patterns, has attracted renewed interest in the field of cosmetics. Its powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties have led to the use of melatonin in cosmetic products, offering potential benefits for improving skin health and fighting the signs of aging.
The power of melatonin
Melatonin is naturally produced by the pineal gland in the brain, mainly at night, to regulate the sleep rhythm. However, recent research has revealed that melatonin has other noteworthy properties that can have a positive effect on the skin. It is a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize harmful free radicals that cause oxidative stress and damage skin cells. In addition, melatonin has been found to have an anti-inflammatory effect, reducing redness, swelling and irritation.
Benefits of melatonin in skin care:
- Anti-aging effect: Melatonin's antioxidant activity helps protect the skin from environmental stressors, such as UV radiation and pollution, which contribute to premature aging. By neutralizing free radicals, melatonin helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, promoting a more youthful skin tone.
- Skin repair and regeneration: Melatonin stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that are essential in maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. This can lead to improved skin texture and reduced visibility of scars and imperfections. In addition, melatonin helps the skin in its natural repair process, speeding up wound healing and reducing inflammation.
- Enhanced hydration: Melatonin has the ability to improve the skin's ability to bind moisture, resulting in better hydration. This can be especially beneficial for people with dry or dehydrated skin, as melatonin helps restore the skin's natural protective layer, reducing moisture evaporation and improving overall skin hydration.
- Soothing effect: Melatonin's anti-inflammatory properties make it a valuable ingredient for soothing sensitive or irritated skin. It can relieve the redness, itching and discomfort associated with conditions such as rosacea, atopic dermatitis or dermatitis, promoting a calmer and more balanced skin tone.
