If you're a skin junkie like we are, you're probably excited by the term "cellular renewal" and right now you're wondering how you make it happen on your face, stat!
First, a little Skin 101. Your skin is the largest organ on your body, and it's made up of three layers.
- the Epidermis, the outer layer and thinnest layer of your skin but responsible for protecting you from the environment
- the Dermis, the middle layer responsible for wrinkles and where you find collagen and elastin
- the Subcutis, the skin’s fatty layer - reduction of tissue in this layer causes your skin to sag as well as wrinkle
You may have noticed that throughout your life, your skin changes constantly – sometimes for the better and sometimes not! The fact is, your skin regenerates itself approximately every 30 days, though that process slows down as we age.
Yep, each month to month and a half, those fresh skin cells that form deep in the Dermis start their journey to the surface of our skin. This is why it's SO important to feed those cells the proper nutrients so when they approach the surface, they are well nourished and bouncy, not starving and tired.
But, how do you reach these cells deep in the Dermis? From the inside! With quality supplements specifically designed to treat your skin.
Here are some of the key nutrients you should be looking for to keep those skin cells happy.
Bioactive Collagen Peptides
Collagen is a protein in our skin, responsible for keeping our skin firm and bouncy. Environmental factors and aging can slow down your body’s ability to produce collagen, so it's important to take a collagen supplement. But not all collagen is created equal. Look for a Bioactive Collagen Peptide. This assures that the collagen you're taking is "hydrolyzed", or broken down to a point that it is bioavailable to your body...ready to get right to work on your skin. Increasing levels of collagen can help brighten and tighten the skin to give you a beautiful glow.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by your body and its main function is to retain water and keep your tissues moist. And surprise – the largest amounts are found in your skin! You’ve seen tons of products with it as a topical ingredient but taking it as a supplement promotes healthier and more radiant skin.
And then there are Antioxidants... our "skin ninjas"! Antioxidants work to ward off damage from free radicals, the crazy molecules that attack healthy cells and cause all sorts of damage. Free radicals love to feast on collagen fibers. In fact, free radical damage is the leading cause of aging.
Make Your Water Make a Difference
It’s so important to take care of all the layers of your skin. The lower layers are responsible for creating and pushing up those new skin cells. And new skins cells, when fed properly, can make the skin appear healthier and plumper, giving you a healthy glow.
There are lots of things we can do to take care of skin and help support the regeneration process – drink enough water, get plenty of sleep, exfoliate, cut down on sugar...
And adding Glotrition Super Beauty Elixir to your routine! It feeds your skin from the inside out, leaving your skin truly nourished. With a patented Bioactive Collagen Peptide that has been clinically shown to increase skin firmness and reduce wrinkle depth in 30 days by spurring new collagen growth, it also supports the other building blocks by providing Hyaluronic Acid, Biotin, Vitamin C, and a targeted blend of powerful antioxidants help to nourish skin cells and protect collagen fibers.
