The chestnut, a fruit with unsuspected beauty virtues

It’s in season! But the chestnut is not only appreciated on the plate, containing many properties for the skin, ideal as winter approaches. Chestnut extract not only deeply hydrates the skin, it also helps repair and protect it throughout the cold season.

Chestnut is an ideal ally as winter approaches, whether you consume it or choose to apply it to your skin, helping to get rid of fatigue, boost energy, or help the body to fight against free radicals. The multiple vitamins, minerals, and trace elements it contains, among others, are no stranger to this multitude of properties. As is often the case, it is not surprising to learn that this seasonal fruit offers as many benefits for health as for the skin, giving full meaning to the very principle of holistic beauty.

A good dose of hydration

While it is essential to moisturize your skin all year round, the winter season is more prone to dry skin. Using chestnuts can therefore be a good idea to give yourself a boost of hydration until spring. Rich in sugars and carbohydrates, the chestnut fruit deeply hydrates the skin, naturally, while leaving the skin soft.

But that’s not all, chestnuts are also rich in antioxidants which, as we know, are known to help protect the body’s cells – and therefore the skin – from the effects of free radicals. In other words, it helps fight against skin aging.

Protection and repair

If you are used to picking chestnuts in the middle of the forest, you are undoubtedly already familiar with the bug, this covering bristling with prickles which ensures the protection of the fruit. A fortiori, it plays the same role with the skin, revealing itself to be a perfect shield against free radicals, as we have seen, but also against other types of external aggression. Once again, nature being well done, the fruit is ideal for protecting the skin in autumn and winter.

While there are many oils and waters based on chestnut extract today, one brand has specialized in this very particular fruit, highlighting an innovation halfway between dermatology and cosmetics. Created by Adéline Constance, L’Accent Cosmetics is undoubtedly the expert in the field today, offering dermo-makeup to combine beauty and benefits for the skin. At stake ? A multifunctional chestnut-based tinted powder that provides continuous hydration and UVA protection.
