Natural beauty, from Polynesia the juice of beauty

Anti-aging, anti-wrinkle and anti-inflammatory, makes the skin more elastic, toned and hydrated, reduces wrinkles and expression lines, useful in case of acne, itching and dandruff
The beauty remedy we are talking about today, noni juice, tastes of white beaches like talcum powder, crystalline seas and exotic islands! Noni is a typical plant of Polynesia and its fruits have been, for centuries, sustenance, medicine and cosmetics for the inhabitants of these islands. Today, we know that tradition and popular wisdom had understood well in advance what science was then able to prove. In fact, noni, and the juice obtained from the fruit of this plant, are a concentrate of substances that are beneficial for health and for the skin. In this article, we will focus on what noni juice can do for our beauty when applied topically. Yes, because you can do this too! But let's understand better.

Noni juice as a cosmetic, what science says

Generally, when we talk about noni juice, we always refer to its properties shown following oral intake. However, noni juice can also be applied to the skin where it proves to be a valid ally for all skin types, both young acne-prone skin, mature wrinkled skin, irritated and sunburnt skin. These effects are attributable to the content of noni in vitamin C, phenolic compounds and triterpenes, such as ursolic acid (Nowak et al, Evid Based Complement Alternat Med, 2019). In fact, these substances, when applied to the skin, have been shown to counteract the inflammation and proliferation of some strains of bacteria, including Propionibacterium acnes, one of the main causes of acne (West et al, Foods, 2018 - Quinteiro Dos Santos et al, Naunyn Schmiedebergs Arch Pharmacol, 2019). Not only that, these substances also give noni juice powerful anti-aging properties, capable of fighting wrinkles, dry, toneless and dehydrated skin and aging processes (West et al, Foods, 2018). It has been observed that the use of cosmetic products based on noni juice already after two weeks has been able to improve the quality of the skin, making it more elastic and toned and reducing expression lines and wrinkles (West et al, Current Research Journal of Biological Science, 2012). Noni is soothing and healing and helps in case of sunburnt but also irritated and itchy skin, including on the scalp (Inada et al, Nutrients, 2017).

Noni juice, DIY cosmetics

You can apply a tablespoon of pure noni juice on a clean face or scalp, if it is itchy and there is dandruff, leave on for ten minutes then rinse (Scot Nelson and Craig Elevitch, Noni the complete guide, PAR). In this case it must be anticipated that the smell of noni juice can be pungent and sour, but this is absolutely normal, it is the smell of the product and does not indicate something that is spoiled. One more idea is the following. Studies have shown that the combination of ursolic acid, contained in noni, and resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant contained in black grapes, maximizes the anti-aging and anti-inflammatory action of the compounds taken individually (Cho et al, Cancer Prev Res, 2015). When it's the season, get a nice bunch of black grapes. Blend 5 grapes, add 2 tablespoons of thick yogurt and a teaspoon of noni juice, mix and apply to cleansed face for ten minutes for a powerful anti-aging, brightening and anti-inflammatory effect.
