The ABC's of Skincare

The ABC's of Skincare

Can you believe it’s already “Back to School” time? As we get ready to send the kids back to school, we thought it would be a great time to take your skin back to school and talk about the ABCs of beautiful skin. There are three basic things to focus on for gorgeous skin – antioxidants, building blocks and consistency.   


A = Antioxidants

Antioxidants are, arguably, the most important line of defense when it comes to your overall health. They are our body's "soldiers" that defend against free radical damage and keep our immune systems working strong. Free radicals are also the biggest skin aging culprit because they damage healthy skin. 


Antioxidants fight oxidative stress while also protecting and supporting new and existing collagen which leads to a brighter, more youthful complexion, increased skin elasticity and the reduction in the appearance of fine lines. 


Antioxidants are a superhero for our skin! And a key element in all Glotrition formulas. Glotrition’s Super Beauty Elixir contains a potent blend of some of the most effective antioxidants on the planet – Fruit Powders, Resveratrol and Vitamin C, to help reduce damage to existing collagen while also nurturing new and developing collagen.  


B = Building Blocks

There are three key building blocks to great skin – Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid. 


Collagen makes up about 75% of the skin and is the most abundant protein in your skin. It is responsible for keeping skin firm, plump and bouncy while warding off fine lines and wrinkles. As we age, the body’s ability to produce collagen slows down. Environmental factors such as sun exposure, smoking and diet also play a big role in the destruction of collagen. Increasing levels of collagen can help brighten and tighten the skin, helping us have smoother skin with a beautiful glow.


Collagen is found in some of the foods we eat but it may be beneficial to add a collagen supplement to your daily beauty wellness routine. Look for a Bioactive Collagen Peptide, like the one found in Glotrition’s Super Beauty Elixir. This assures that the collagen you're taking is "hydrolyzed" or broken down to a point that it is bioavailable to your body and ready to get right to work on your skin. 


Elastin helps give your skin spring and bounce while also preventing wrinkles. Often confused with collagen, elastin is another protein altogether that is also very abundant in the body. Elasitin is a stretchy protein resembling a rubber band. It can stretch out and shrink back and is a major component of tissues in the body that require stretchiness like the lungs, bladder, arteries and even some ligaments. 


It’s also found in the connective tissue of the dermis layer and it’s what gives the skin the ability to stretch and snap back. Fun fact – elastin is about 1,000 times stretchier than collagen. While the Super Beauty Elixir nourishes collagen, Glotrition’s Afterglo Gummiceuticals nourishes elastin. Together, the products work synergistically to enhance skin smoothness, making skin more flexible and elastic.


Hyaluronic Acid is the third building block which helps your skin gain and keep hydration so it’s moist and plump and supports your collagen and elastin as they are forming. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is the perfect humectant. Also known as hyaluronan, its main function is to retain water to keep our tissues lubricated and moist with the largest amounts of it found in the skin, connective tissue and eyes. The HA in our bodies holds a thousand times its weight in water! And not only is it retaining all that moisture in our skin and joints, but it’s also preventing that moisture from evaporating into the air. 


About half of the HA in the body is found in the skin. Its job in the skin – to hold water and keeps skin hydrated and plump. Just like collagen, the amount of naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid in our bodies decreases as we get older. The HA in Glotrition’s Super Beauty Elixir helps prevent the decline of natural HA by giving the body extra amounts to incorporate into the skin. It is an important component of the Glotrition Super Beauty Elixir, providing optimum cell hydration which helps moisturize dry skin from the inside out. 


C = Consistency

Consistency is the key with any healthy habit or routine including skincare. Whether it’s topical skincare like washing your face and moisturizing or ingestible beauty like Glorition’s beauty supplements, it’s important to make sure these things become part of your daily routine to ensure the best results for you and your skin. 


The effects of skincare are cumulative and you will see more results the longer you use products like Glotrition. That’s because you are not only adding things like Bioactive Collagen Peptides that help stimulate new collagen growth, but you are also protecting new and existing collage with Glotrition’s powerful antioxidant blend. By supporting the ongoing regeneration process of the skin, each new layer appears healthier. With continued use, skin appears smoother, plumper and even has more elasticity – all keys to healthier, youthful looking skin.

Your beauty wellness routine may have gone out the window over the summer but now is the perfect time to get it back on track which includes making sure you are supplementing your skin. Getting back in the habit of drinking your Super Beauty Elixir and taking your Afterglo gummies can lead to healthier and younger looking skin. Now is the time to get your GLO on!
