Naturaceuticals and skin health

Treatment
This month I will be focusing on how to look radiant not just with amazing skin boosting medical facials, but how the connection between nutrition, skin conditions and ageing has been at the forefront of research more recently. After all, don’t they say true beauty comes from within?
Nutraceuticals and skin benefits
Over the years vitamins A, C & E have all demonstrated the ability to im- prove both the health and overall appearance of the skin. However nutrients which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties provide protection from damage caused by the sun, supporting skin health, collagen synthesis and cell renewal.
Vitamin A – promotes dermal growth, regulates sebaceous gland activity. Both these actions are essential for skin cell turnover and prevention of acne symp- toms.
TRY RETINOL PEELS or Inspira Med lift serum or Neostrat retinol plus NAG, both are high grade and results are amazing.
Vitamin C – is a multi tasking Skin healer. Antioxidant, anti- ageing, natural skin brighter and melanin suppressant to prevent hyperpigmentation.
Try daily vitamin C orally, also topical solutions like Inspira Med radiance serum, Excuviance skin capsules, Obaji Brightalivs or Flavo C Forte.
Vitamin E – highly effective antioxidant, studies show vitamin Eorally can help protect the skin from harmful oxidants.
Examples of Dietary antioxidants to protect the skin – green tea, dark berries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, red wine and soy all have an effect on helping to pro- tect the skin.
Examples of dietary anti-inflammatories to protect the skin, curcumin and ginger can be added to food or drinks.
Treatments that can promote better skin health and appearance-
Treatment 1
– Derma roller – micro needling is a natural skin rejuvenation method that is able to soften wrinkles and scars. The process creates hundreds of microscop- ic ‘pinpricks’ to activate your body’s wound healing process. As your skin heals it uses your own collagen to fill the valleys of wrinkles and scars, great for open pores, sun damage and uneven skin tone.
Treatment 2

Treatment 3
