As we age, caring for our skin becomes more important and what we see happening at the surface is often a reflection of the breakdown of what's happening on the inside.
This means that in addition to wrinkles, stretch marks and cellulite, you may also feel this breakdown of connective tissue in your joints, circulatory system, or even in the gut and intestinal lining and you're left feeling the signs of premature ageing; achy joints and backs, sore, bloated tummies, more food sensitivities and unhealthy bowel habits.
Because of this internal breakdown it means that fancy creams can only solve a part of the problem, as they're not absorbed past superficial layers of the skin. It’s not just about what you put ON your body, but what you put IN your body that has an impact.
If you have been loving the Spring Box then chances are you have been using the Ancient and Wild Organics Beauty Elixir, which is designed to have an impact beneath the surface.
The Beauty Elixir contains high potency hydrolysed marine collagen peptides and hyaluronic acid to feed the skin and body from within and they both work together to synthesise collagen and boost hydration and elasticity for healthier, younger looking skin.
How to help treat your skin!
Your skin needs collagen to stay smooth, supple, and strong and science shows that supplementing with marine collagen is the most effective way to treat and prevent cellulite and stretch marks from within. This is because consuming collagen stimulates your body’s own collagen production and repairs damaged collagen that is already present.
Besides choosing to eat collagen-rich foods and taking a marine collagen supplement like Youth Elixir Marine Beauty Collagen, you can also make a few other dietary adjustments in order to optimise skin regeneration and repair.
As with preventing premature ageing, it is essential to avoid pro-inflammatory foods, like wheat, refined sugar, dairy, soy, gluten, refined grains and oxidised oils. This is because inflammation ignites an immune response. Once this happens, white blood cells release something called collagenase, which is an enzyme that breaks down collagen. Collagenase is now enemy number 1.
But by using a whole food collagen supplementation with Youth Elixir Marine Beauty Collagen, you can naturally keep inflammation in check. Collagen, fermented foods, alkalising greens and probiotic beverages will also help heal the gut and reduce harmful inflammation.
Also, be sure to eat foods that contain:
- Vitamin C: Vitamin C is necessary to synthesise the proteins needed to produce collagen, as well as enhancing the absorption of your Youth Elixir Marine Beauty Collagen Supplement.
- Zinc: Zinc deficiency has been found to inhibit the formation of collagen, especially after trauma, so pop down to your local chemist as they usually offer free zinc testing which only takes a few minutes.
So let's be real now, who wouldn’t love to radiate health? And as a side effect of that have smooth, unblemished skin.
Healthy skin is a DIRECT sign of internal health. Supporting skin integrity with the right diet and collagen supplement does more the diminish scarring and cellulite - it contributes to full body health from the inside out!
