We’ve uncovered some ways to turn back the hands of time with both lifestyle changes as well as supplements to include in your regime for great health.
Skin Science 101
Since our skin is the largest organ it tends to be the most important as well, but many of us just don’t give it the support it needs to look it’s best and to function at its best.
Our outer layer of skin (the epidermis) is continuously regenerating which means it needs a lot of support from the nutrients we take in. Under the top layer the dermis needs a lot of different proteins to remain healthy, but because of our general poor diet and lifestyle in the US it is undernourished.
So to get the most out of your anti-aging program, here is what we recommend:
- Consume lots of veggies with rich colors
- Use sunscreen at all times. UV Light can penetrate clouds
- Consume moderate amounts of alcohol
- Drink Plenty of Water
When it comes to supplementation a great way to get the most of the supplements is through an IV.
There are a few key nutrients that play a crucial role in skin health. You should consider the following as you are creating a supplement plan for your skin and your overall health.
5 Key Skin Nutrients:
1. Vitamin A (retinol—the active form of Vitamin A)…
Vitamin A is required for maintaining many essential physiological processes in the body including normal growth and development, normal vision, a healthy immune system, normal reproduction, and healthy skin and barrier functions.
UV light depletes the skin of Vitamin A. So it’s clear why this vitamin is part of anti-aging and skin improvement formulas.
2. B3 also called nicotinamide:
Niacinamide helps with moisture retention in the skin.
Nicotinamide shows promise for the treatment of a wide range of dermatological conditions, including autoimmune blistering disorders, acne, rosacea, aging skin and atopic dermatitis.
3. B5 Dexpanthenol
Like Niacinamide, Vitamin B5 is also important in maintaining tissue hydration. It reduces cholesterol levels and inflammation.
4. Vitamin C
Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid, is a very important antioxidant known to reduce the photo-aging because it protects against UV light damage. It also plays an integral role in collagen production.
IV infusions with Vitamin C are very easy to tolerate and have the added effect of increasing overall energy and vitality.
5. Glutathione (my personal favorite)
Glutathione is a major antioxidant in the body and plays a critical role in detoxification in the body. This means it inactivates toxic molecules like heavy metals and makes them more water soluble, so that the kidneys can then flush them out.
Many patients report that their complexion becomes more even, better skin tone and moisture after IV Glutathione treatments.
By eating well, and taking the right supplements (along with the other lifestyle tips noted above), you can get that glowing, beautiful skin you have always wanted, reverse the signs of aging and enhance your overall health at the same time.
