Glowing skin is always an indicator of vitality and perfect health. However, with air pollution surrounding us, with the stressful lives we lead, the unhealthy food intake, and lack of exercise, glowing skin is now very difficult to achieve, even more, maintain.
To get glowing skin, many people waste their time and money with ineffective skin care treatments in the clinic, or go to expensive spa solutions, or buy beauty creams that just don’t work. If you want to effectively get glowing skin, there are only three important things to work on.
Diet has a lot to do with glowing skin. Foods such as fruits and vegetables, lean meats like chicken and tuna, are full of vitamins, minerals, nutrients and antioxidants and are the only foods you need for healthy skin. If you keep on eating deep fried fast foods or oily foods, you are giving your skin a very difficult time.
The Right Skin Care Products
To provide your skin the best treatment possible, it is important that you keep it healthy with the right skin care products. Invest in skincare products that are clinically proven to heal the skin and to give you a very radiant complexion, and are free from harsh ingredients that will do the skin more harm than good.
The Right Supplements
No matter how healthy you try to get, most people simply don’t get enough of the right nutrients from diet alone. This means you will need the help of supplements that will not on help you get glowing skin but will also give you the healthier body you deserve.
The Special Ingredient
How do you know which skin care product or supplement is right to give you the glowing skin you have always wanted? It is quite simple – look for the ingredient Phytessence Wakame. This is a powerful oxidant that can be derived from a special sea alga that are native only in Japan. It is extensively cultivated in Japan and is eaten either fresh or dried, or included in many of their dishes because of its health-giving properties and its ability to keep the skin looking youthful. No wonder these Japanese have the skin we can only envy!
Wakame is rich in sodium, potassium, iron and calcium (in amounts 15 times more than milk) – minerals that are important in maintaining the moisture balance in the skin and keep it firm and healthy-looking. It is also rich in B-group vitamins which are important in soothing skin inflammation.
Furthermore, phytessence wakame inhibits the enzyme called hyaluronidase. This enzyme promotes the breakdown of hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid, together with collagen and elastin, is very important for maintaining the skin’s elasticity, tone, and smoothness. Hyaluronic acid acts like a glue which puts together elastin and collagen fibers, without which sagging, dark eye circles, and other unhealthy skin problems will set in.
Finally, research has shown that sulfated poly fucose, an active ingredient in phytessence wakame, can help protect the skin from damage caused by environmental pollution and UV rays.
Glowing skin is not a far off reality if you eat right and choose the right products and supplements.
