Not long ago, I wrote about nutrients that promote healthy, youthful skin. I mentioned that I don’t recommend heavy cosmetic creams and cover-ups to my patients. And I’m afraid I may have created some confusion.
So today, I’d like to clear that up… by talking about how to nourish your skin from the outside.
Build Healthy Skin by Working From the Inside Out
A good contractor puts up a house’s foundation and framing before he adds the clapboards and paint. A house that’s just a pretty exterior – without a strong foundation and frame – will fall apart quickly.
Your skin is a lot like that house. The nutrients we discussed earlier – vitamin C, green tea extract and grape seed extract – are your solid foundation. They work from the inside out. But when your framework’s done, you can move on to the exterior.
I’m not talking about putting goopy make-up on your face, though. I’m talking about “food” for your skin. Today, you’ll discover three nutrients that protect and rejuvenate your skin from the outside.
Soothing Protection for Your Skin
One of the best things you can do for your skin – from the outside – is to apply aloe vera gel. Aloe has been used for centuries to promote healthier skin – and to sooth skin after injuries of all types.
Modern science says that this ancient practice is still a good idea. And soothing sore skin is just the start. Studies show that aloe supports your body’s defenses against radiation damage,1 reduces inflammation,2 speeds skin repair,3 and much more. It’s a powerful protection package.
But as remarkable as aloe gel is, there’s an even more remarkable nutrient that’s already in your skin.
Increasing Your Skin’s Natural Protection
You may have heard of hyaluronic acid (HA). It’s the major component in many of the injectible products used to reduce lines and wrinkles in skin.
But it’s also an important component of your skin itself. HA promotes skin repair and naturally inhibits scarring. It helps keep your skin elastic and youthful, too.
HA is easily absorbed through the skin. In fact, it penetrates into your skin so rapidly, that some researchers think your body may actively “pull it in.”4 And once HA is in your skin, it promotes natural hydration5… so your skin looks smoother and younger.
Surprising as it may seem, HA isn’t the only substance already in your body that can make your skin appear more youthful from the outside.
CoQ10 to the Rescue
CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant. It’s at its highest concentration in your skin in your 20’s. By the time you reach 30, your skin’s CoQ10 level begins to drop.
But here’s the good news: Like HA, your skin absorbs CoQ10 quite easily. When you apply it to your skin, it provides antioxidant protection… and also helps lessen the appearance of wrinkles.6
Best of all, both HA and CoQ10 are completely natural – and completely safe. Added to aloe vera, they provide your skin with powerful protection. And promote a smoother, more youthful look.
The Complete Package – Inside and Out
Vitamin C, green tea extract and grape seed extract work from the inside to support healthier, younger-looking skin. Aloe vera, hyaluronic acid and CoQ10 do a similar job from the outside.
Together, they make an unbeatable team to keep your skin feeling and looking younger and healthier.
