Summer is upon us which means holidays, long evenings and lots of sunshine. Daily exposure to the sun is important, especially for critical vitamin D production, but excessive sun, while unprotected, can be very harmful.
Prolonged exposure to the sun can drive a process within the body known as oxidative stress and its definitely something we want to avoid. Excessive UV
light from the sun on unprotected skin causes the generation of free radicals, harmful by-products in the body which drive oxidative stress. This process leads to the oxidation of important proteins, DNA and healthy moisture promoting fats in skin cells. It is these damages to the body, through oxidative stress, that cause signs of premature ageing in the skin from wrinkles to sagging.
There are steps that we can take to protect our skin from sun damage, both outside and within, promoting healthy ageing and younger looking skin. A good sun block or sun screen is very important to protect from skin damage from UV exposure, but there are a number of nutritional steps we can also take to battle skin damage and premature ageing from within.
Antioxidants like Vitamin C and Vitamin E are great for helping to clear out the harmful free radicals inside us generated by UV exposure. These antioxidants help protect our bodies, tissue and skin from the process of oxidative
stress keeping it youthful and healthy. Phytoceramides also work to protect from sun and oxidative stress damage by promoting a strong, vital skin barrier by ensuring tightly joined skin cells. A compromised skin barrier can also further accelerate premature ageing by leaving our skin more susceptible to damage, but that is where Marine Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid come it. Collagen helps to restore the structure of the skin, while Hyaluronic Acid works to restore
much need moisture into dry and cracking skin layers. Together the Marine Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Phytoceramides, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and more, all work together and promote each other effectiveness at not only protecting our skin from sun damage and oxidative stress, but also works to give us back younger and healthier looking skin every day. Revive Active Beauty Complex is nurturing the skin from within.
