The formula for achieving beautiful, (almost) wrinkle-free skin... and how to keep it that way!
Environmental and weather conditions often take their toll on the skin. The skin must therefore be cared for and protected accordingly, but keep in mind that each skin-type has its own individual needs. The following applies across the board, however:
- Consistent care of skin - (inside and out) throughout the whole year, in combination with a healthy diet and enough exercise are the main pre-requisites for a healthy and fresh-looking skin.
- In order to support the skin’s natural moisture, a moisturizing lotion should be used regularly. This is of course in addition to eating healthily. Areas of the body particularly affected should be treated with extra rich products. It is highly recommended that a body lotion is applied after every sun-bed treatment or after lying in the sun. The application of moisturizers does not, however, replace a sensible diet. Where dietary requirements cannot be or are not being fulfilled, such as in the case of an acknowledged amino acid deficiency, a targeted supplement should be taken.
- As the ‘elixir of life’, water is indispensable to healthy and fresh-looking skin. Sufficient intake of fluids (at least 2 litres per day) will greatly support the skin’s capacity to function. This is particularly important during the dry and cold seasons.
- Targeted intake of vitamins B and C can greatly help to increase the skin’s resistance. Amino acids such as l-arginine and l-glutamine support the circulatory functions and enable optimal nourishment of the skin, resulting in a firmer connective tissue.
In treating dry skin, it is not only important to moisturize, but also to add natural moisture- retaining elements such as amino acids. These hygroscopic (i.e. readily takes up and retains moisture) substances supply appropriate doses of moisture to the skin over the long-term. For the treatment of oil-free skin, a supplement of specific, corresponding lipid-types can be added. Ceramides, cholesterol, free, unsaturated fatty acids and amino acids such as l-glutamin and l-carnitine also play an important role here.
