Cosme.. what’s? Cosmeceuticals is a relatively new term that is fast becoming a ‘buzz’ word in the cosmetic industry. It refers not only to topical beauty products that promote ‘medicinal’ anti-aging solutions for your skin – but also to natural oral products that benefit your skin from the inside-out. Most of us are familiar with ingredients in topical products that have shown to help reduce wrinkles, diminish brown spots, and help produce smoother skin. However, the oral ingredients that have shown to benefit the anti-aging of skin are not as recognized, even though their impact on results is just as, if not more important than the topical creams, serums, etc.
The most studied and effective oral components that have shown to beneficial are: collagen, vitamin C, green tea extract, Vitamin E, grape seed extract, resveratrol, and pine bark extract. Collagen, a structural protein, is key to the structural support of not only your skin, but also for your internal organs, bones, teeth, joints, and tendons. The remainder of the list are considered important and effective because first and foremost they are all a type of anti-oxidant. Their anti-oxidant powers fight the damaging effects of free radicals… and each a bit differently. Additionally, Vitamins C and A are essential for collagen production. Vitamin A has also shown to help protect the skin from premature aging caused by sun damage. Resveratrol (as an isolated compound or from grape seed extract) has been linked to a slew of anti-aging benefits; including and not limited to heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. It has been dubbed ‘The Super Anti-Aging Anti-Oxidant’ and often referred to as the fountain of youth ingredient. Vitamin E has shown to be effective in its role as free radical fighter in the skin against outside forces such as air pollution, and harmful UV light. And last, but not least pine bark extract was shown in studies to bind to collagen and elastin to help protect skin from various harmful enzymes – thus helping to rebuild elasticity and promote smoother looking skin. It also has anti-oxidant properties that help neutralize free radicals and protect the skin from sunburn and photoaging.
This shows why the ingredients in our PC Nutrition’s Wrinkles Away product were selected. This product was originally developed for our professional clientele, including Estheticians, Dermatologists, and Plastic Surgeons. As a long time favorite, we are pleased to introduce it to our OneLifeUSA customers.
