Protein to Build Healthy Skin

Your body is made of protein and thus, to have healthy radiant skin, sufficient intake of protein is important to:

  • Provide essential amino acids, which are not made in your body to optimize skin’s function.
  • Support production of healthy skin cells.
  • Repair and generate new skin cells and tissue.
  • Produce healthy hormones and vital enzymes for skin.
  • Support production of amino acid glutathione that helps to shield skin cells against sun damage.8

Antioxidant Protection with Vitamin C

Vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant promotes healthy skin by neutralizing free radical damage. However, your body is unable to produce vitamin C and must be consumed through diet. Regular intake of vitamin C helps to:

  • Reduce appearance of wrinkles, soothe dry and rough skin.4
  • Promote collagen synthesis and skin regeneration.5,6
  • Aid in wound healing.5
  • Defend against free radicals.5

Firm Up with Collagen

Collagen is an important structure for your skin. It maintains your skin’s elasticity and prevents wrinkling, scarring and sagging. The best news is your body can produce it.

However, as you age, the amount of collagen produced slowly decreases, exposing you to risks of developing wrinkles and sagging skin. Delay these aging signs and start taking collagen now:

  • Better skin elasticity.1
  • Minimize the appearance of wrinkles.2
  • Supple, firmer skin.1
  • Reduce scar visibility.2

Retain Skin’s Moisture with GLA

Healthy skin depends on the amount of skin’s lipid particularly, the gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). This fatty acid plays an important role in maintaining skin’s moisture and:

  • Reduces itching and scaling of skin.3
  • Retains skin moisture.4
  • Fights inflammation.7
