How Oligoderm Compares to Topical Solutions for Skin Health
The skin is the largest organ in the body, and keeping your skin healthy can keep it functioning correctly. The skin’s main job is to protect the body by providing a barrier from external dangers, like bacteria, chemicals, extreme temperatures, and ultraviolet light.
Any visit to a drugstore will confirm the importance of healthy skin. There are thousands of products that promise to restore and maintain your skin. However, the options for taking care of your skin can have you acting like a chemist layering serums, lotions, and creams without knowing how effective they are.
While topical solutions have their place in skin care, achieving healthy skin is best addressed from the inside out.
Better Health, Better Skin
Healthy skin is a reflection of your overall wellness. So while you still need to take measures to care for and protect your skin directly, your skin will show it if your health is poor.
Fixing your skin always starts with what you put in your body. If your skin isn’t getting the vitamins and nutrients it needs to perform, it will show on your skin’s surface. Prioritizing your internal care allows for you to use fewer external treatments.
Using Oligoderm™ to Restore Your Skin Health
Quality of Life’s Oligonol® uses lychee fruit and green tea to provide the body with highly absorbable polyphenols. The antioxidant ingredient in Oligonol® is clinically proven to support cardiovascular health, relax blood vessels, and enhance circulation.*
As a result, Oligonol® supports your skin’s health and appearance, increases your endurance, lessens fatigue, and can even reduce visceral fat.*
Quality of Life’s newest supplement, Oligoderm™, uses a special formulation of Oligonol® and niacinamide to offer the skin a comprehensive solution that creates brighter, smoother, healthier, and younger-looking skin.*
Skin Health and the Circulatory System
Your circulatory system is critical to every aspect of your health, including your skin. The skin relies on the network of blood vessels and capillaries to bring it the oxygenated blood and nutrients it needs to prosper. Carbon dioxide and other waste must also be transported away from the skin so you don’t experience a buildup of toxins.
Poor Circulation and Your Skin
When the circulatory system begins to slow, it can cause several changes in your skin. Without proper oxygen and nutrients, your natural complexion can change, and you can experience skin discoloration. Pale, dull skin is often associated with poor blood flow.
Lack of blood flow also often leads to dark, under-eye circles, as the skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate. As that skin receives less oxygenated blood, shadows can begin to appear under the eyes.
In addition to undereye circles and a duller complexion, you may experience more breakouts from poor circulation, as toxins aren’t being efficiently carried away from the skin, and your skin isn’t getting the nutrients it needs. In addition, other skin discolorations, like sun spots, are more likely to form when there is poor circulation.
Lack of blood flow means less collagen and vital proteins in the skin and a buildup of waste and toxins in the skin that can lead to more vulnerability. As a result, common skin conditions can flare up, and skin can become dryer, thinner, and more likely to develop wrinkles and laxity.
Polyphenols and Skin Health
Polyphenols encompass a group of about 4,000 antioxidants. They naturally protect plants from damaging UV rays of the sun. You can restore your skin by consuming polyphenols, like the ones in Oligoderm™, to protect your skin cells from free radical damage.*
In a 2011 study from The Journal of Nutrition, participants were either given a beverage containing green tea polyphenols or one that did not over twelve weeks. Then they measured participants’ skin elasticity, roughness, scaling, density, and other factors.
The participants who consumed polyphenol-containing beverages showed greater blood flow and oxygenation to the skin, significantly improving overall skin quality.
How Do Polyphenols Improve the Skin?
To understand how polyphenols work, you first need to understand free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules and have the potential to damage the skin. Since free radicals are missing an electron from their outer shell, they search for other atoms or molecules that have these electrons so they can become stable.
As free radicals try to bond with other atoms or molecules, they cause oxidative stress, wreaking havoc on the skin. Oxidative stress weakens cells and tissues and makes you more vulnerable to other health concerns.
Unfortunately, free radicals can be anywhere, and your body (and skin) encounter them daily. The body even produces free radicals as part of the natural aging process. Common external causes of free radical damage include:
- Air pollution
- UV radiation
- Poor nutrition
Our body’s constant exposure to free radicals makes loading up on antioxidants, specifically polyphenols, an essential part of protecting your skin and overall health.
Polyphenols work to fight off free radicals and stop them from harming healthy cells. While free radicals are missing an electron from their outer shell, antioxidants contain an extra electron that they can donate to free radicals without becoming unstable.
The structure of polyphenols makes them uniquely capable of binding to free radicals and offering free radicals their extra electron. As a result, free radicals become balanced before they can harm your cells.
While you can’t completely avoid exposure to free radicals, you can arm yourself with Oligoderm™ to stop them from causing damage.
The Impressive Benefits of Niacinamide
Niacinamide is a workhorse in the skincare world. Reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing the appearance of pores, lightening dark spots, and calming redness and blotchiness are just a few of the skin-boosting benefits of niacinamide.
Niacinamide not only calms and restores the skin but also balances and protects it. Niacinamide helps your skin build keratin and grow a lipid barrier. Keratin helps the skin stay firm and healthy, while the lipid barrier helps to balance and retain moisture, offering skin strength and protection against further damage.
The niacinamide and Oligonol® combination, found only in Quality of Life’s Oligoderm™, offers your skin the unique combination of highly researched, skin-supporting ingredients.*
With Oligoderm™, you can nurture your skin from the inside out by providing your largest organ with the protection, nourishment, and rejuvenation it needs to shine.*
