At last, the beautiful season is here! July rhymes with holidays, beaches and sun. Now, we all know that it’s necessary to protect our skin from the sun with a 30 SPF sunscreen. But did you know that you can also protect and nourish your skin from the inside with the help of natural supplements? Indeed, certain nutrients are essential to keep a beautiful and healthy looking skin all year round.
Vitamin E for example is an antioxidant which protects from free radicals caused by sun exposure. It delays the appearance of wrinkles while softening the skin. We can find vitamin E in wheat germ oil, sea-buckthorn oil, sunflower oil, wheat germ, walnuts and seeds. You can also go for vitamin E supplements which will assure you to get the maximum benefits.
Collagen helps densify, protect and regenerate the skin. We can find collagen in the gelatinous part of animal broth (chicken broth, veal stock made with bones and cartilage).
The synthesis of collagen in the skin tends to decrease with age and that’s why a supplement is often recommended to compensate. Adrien Gagnon’s Triple Action Collagen is a simple and effective way to nourish your skin from the inside. This product contains:
• Collagen: for the various amino acids necessary for its production;
• Lysine: one of these amino acids necessary for the production of collagen; the body does not produce lysine so we have to ingest it as part of our diet or as a supplement;
• Vitamin C: essential to the activity of the enzymes necessary to build collagen.
Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid that is not only good for the heart but also helps maintain beautiful skin. A person who lacks good fat or has difficulty assimilating it, may have very dry and scaly skin, especially on the legs and the arms which are more exposed to the sun. Omega-3s are found in fatty fish such as anchovies, sardines, tuna, salmon, trout, herring and mackerel. Our liquid Go-Omega product is a good way to get these essential fats especially if you don’t eat a lot of fish. A single teaspoon per day gives you all the benefits, it’s better than a capsule and it’s easier to digest.
NB. A minimum of three months of these three products is recommended to see a noticeable improvement of the skin.
