What is your skin diet?
The condition of your skin reflects your general health and like the rest of your body, your skin needs good nutrition to look and feel its best. It is important to have a balanced diet that is rich in vitamins and minerals. There are also products available that can help your skin texture and tone from the outside in.
Cosmeceuticals are skincare products that contain topically applied ingredients that may provide benefit to the skin, particularly in the treatment of ageing and photo-damaged skin.
Common ingredients include:
- Retinoids that consist of vitamin A. They may act to reverse photo-ageing, evening out irregular pigmentation and appear to promote the formation of a new layer of collagen in the skin.
- Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) or fruit acids such as glycolic and lactic acids may improve the condition of the skin and help you maintain a healthy, glowing complexion. AHAs do this by encouraging the production of collagen which helps to decrease wrinkles and produce lighter, more youthful-looking skin.
- Antioxidants such as vitamin C and E help prevent damage to the skin by neutralising free radicals and the damaging chemicals produced by the sun, smoking, pollution and other environmental factors. They also promote the formation and repair of collagen, which makes your skin more supple and elastic, and reduces wrinkles. .
