How to use stevia for the skin care

Imagine having a wrinkle-free skin and expression lines without undergoing any  radical cosmetic procedure. Did you like the idea? All this is possible from the use of Stevia Rebaudiana, a plant with several benefits.

With a similar taste to the sugar, the plant has been widely used over the last few years as a natural alternative to sweeten foods and beverages. Stevia is rich in acetylcholinesterase, a powerful enzyme.

It is able to degrade acetylcholine, a chemical mediator of muscle contraction. In other words, it performs the stoppage of muscle, which results in an effect similar to botulinum toxin, the famous Botox.

This substance, present in Stevia, when it is manipulated in cream form, can be used around the eyes, and especially in the forehead region, resulting in an effective reduction of muscle relaxation with longitudinal wrinkles.
