Few products fit as well into the luxury lifestyle as caviar, the most decadent of delicacies from the roe of the sturgeon of selected seas.
And if you’re not a fan of eating the fish, caviar can still be a thrilling accoutrement to your well-being as the skin care product you’ve been searching for.
The deeply moisturizing oil extracted from sturgeon eggs contains omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, proteins, vitamins and antioxidants that work together to lock in our skin’s moisture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, boost collagen production and protect us from UV rays (though it can’t replace sunscreen).
It also fights the breakdown of elastin, reduces inflammation for those with sensitive skin or conditions like rosacea, is non-irritating and available at a lower price point than the edible version.
And nothing feels quite as extravagant as this rich, ultra-hydrating substance oozing across your face. You can even get facials where the roe is applied directly to your skin. But most users apply the extract in the form of moisturizers, serums and masks.
Its heavy, luscious feel leaves your skin younger and softer, and some prefer to wear it at night because they find it a little too much for daytime. It can be a game-changer for your skin health.
However, it should not be used by people who are allergic to fish or shellfish. Also, if your complexion is oily or acne-prone some caviar extract products can leave a slick residue on your skin that’s probably the last thing you’re trying to achieve.
Your hair will thank you, too!
It’s less common, but caviar extract also is used in hair products as it can help fortify our follicles, repair split ends and may prevent hair loss while hydrating our hair and scalp.
Just like with skin, those with oily hair may not get the best results from caviar-bearing shampoos, conditioners and serums.
