How to Best Care for Your Skin Health
One of the biggest misconceptions about winter and cold weather is that you no longer need sunscreen. You're likely covered up and bundled when it’s cold out, complete with a shawl or scarf, but your face, and sometimes arms or hands, are still exposed to sunrays. Walking during midday, especially driving, when the sun is high in the sky can do some damage to your skin, and you wouldn't notice as much as during summer months because it’s cold out!
"Unfelt" sun damage is why some people end up surprised at how much their face hurts or why they have rashes or redness when they look in the mirror. If any parts of your body are exposed to sunlight, using sunscreen should still be part of your daily routine even in the height of winter.
Other than sunlight, people also often forget to drink their liquids when it's cold. After all, you're not sweating, and the cold air can help soothe feelings of thirst. On top of being detrimental to overall health, being dehydrated is one of the worst things you can do for your skin.
Don't forget to drink water throughout the day during cold months. Set a reminder or alarm on your phone if needed that tells you it’s time for a glass or two. Maybe even bring a big bottle to work or a bottle that measures water intake throughout the day and make it a goal to drink it all. Staying hydrated is one of the best things you can do for your complexion and overall health!
Use Oils like Jojoba and Vitamin E
Vitamin E helps lock in moisture as well as reduce flaking or dryness. Jojoba oil is known to help retain moisture, acting as a sort of skin barrier against dryness. You can also apply a thin layer on your hands and face if you don't have sunscreen, but ensure it isn’t an irritant to your face before incorporating this. Sometimes our skin needs much more moisture in the winter months, more than a moisturizer or lotion could provide, and that’s why incorporating oils could be the skin saver you’re looking for this winter!
Quality of Life’s Skin Health Supplements
Exequel™: Skin Soothing and Hydration
Exequel™ contains natural ingredients that increase the comfort and hydration of your skin.*
Many products marketed to treat sensitive skin contain controversial ingredients like parabens, petroleum, or propylene glycol. These ingredients can have unpleasant side effects, and some of these compounds have safety concerns that science has not yet been able to address.
With Exequel™, you never have to worry about harsh ingredients.* The star ingredient, L-92®, which comes from beneficial bacteria that soothes irritated skin.* This ingredient has shown a lot of promise and potential for treating sensitive skin.*
Because of its effectiveness in reducing skin sensitivity and discomfort, L-92® won the NutrAward for Best Functional Ingredient in 2016.*
L-92® is a patented strain of heat-sterilized bacteria, L. acidophilus. This bacteria is found in the healthy yogurt products you see at your local grocery store. L-92® regulates the activity of cytokines, which are immune cells that cause skin reactions.*
When you take Exequel™ with L-92®, you might discover begin experiencing less skin discomfort and a calmer system.*
Juvecol®: The Healthy Aging Skin Supplement
Aging affects everyone’s skin at some point in their lives. You can’t completely avoid wrinkles, fine lines, and dryness. However, with Juvecol®, you can combat the visible signs of aging by nourishing your skin from the inside out.*
Juvecol® contains BioCell Collagen®, a patented formulation of beneficial ingredients for your skin.* BioCell Collagen® has the same structure as the collagen your body naturally produces.* This means your skin can use these fibers to become more elastic and firm.*
BioCell Collagen® also contains hyaluronic acid, a hydrating substance that keeps your skin youthful.* As you age, your skin produces less hyaluronic acid, resulting in dryness and wrinkles. With BioCell Collagen®, you get plenty of hyaluronic acid to nourish your skin and promote a smooth, hydrated complexion.*
Your skin needs proteoglycans to stay elastic and “snap back” into shape, proteoglycans are not present in most mainstream collagen supplements. Juvecol® contains a patented form of salmon cartilage extract that provides your body with proteoglycans.*
When combined with collagen and hyaluronic acid, these proteoglycans refresh the youthful elasticity in your skin.*
The proteoglycan blend in Juvecol® has been studied in human clinical trials.* The results speak for themselves: after two weeks, most participants noticed improvements in their complexions.* They reported fewer wrinkles, less blotchiness and redness, and more skin moisture.*
Oligoderm™: Skin Protection and Repair*
Oligoderm™ features two important ingredients for skin rejuvenation: Oligonol® and niacinamide.*
Oligoderm™ uses the circulation-boosting powers of Oligonol® to nourish and repair your skin.* This ingredient has shown promising results for youthful-looking skin in clinical studies.*
Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, plays an important role in evening out your skin tone and reducing red patches.* If you struggle with dry, flaky, or scaly skin patches, the niacinamide in Oligoderm™ may help.*
This dual-action skin health supplement protects your complexion from signs of aging and sun damage while boosting collagen and elastin production.*
Oligonol®: Circulatory Health*
Oligonol® is our circulatory health supplement that helps keep your skin youthful and healthy.* This supplement increases blood flow throughout your circulatory system to ensure every part of your body gets an adequate blood supply.*
Our Oligonol® supplement can improve your skin health by delivering essential nutrients and hydration to the capillaries under your skin.* Oligonol® is made from lychee fruit and green tea extract, both of which fight against free radical damage and support healthy inflammation responses.*
It acts as an antioxidant by removing free radicals that contribute to aging, bodily stress, and excess inflammatory responses.* Oligonol® also supports your immune system by increasing the circulation of essential immune cells.*
Improved circulation means increased nourishment and blood supply to your skin. You may not think of circulatory health in conjunction with skin health, but the body is an integrated system that relies on all other parts to function!
Yellow & Black Turmeric with Curcumin-SR ™: Healthy Inflammatory Response
The power of turmeric for a healthy inflammatory response can be traced back thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. It's well known that eating foods rich in turmeric helps lower the risks of joint pains and other related conditions. This alone is an excellent reason to take Yellow & Black Turmeric with Curcumin-SR™ but there's more to our product than improving joint health. *
More than just a healthy inflammatory response, Yellow & Black Turmeric with Curcumin-SR™ can also help activate what we call the SIRT1 gene, the very thing that determines how fast a person ages. If it's activated, the body ages slower, which was our product's aim by adding an ingredient called SIRTMAX. *
SIRTMAX can help improve SIRT1 gene activity by up to 17 times. It's also shown to positively affect markers of aging such as blood sugar levels, antioxidant capacity, weight, and cholesterol and triglycerides. *
Resveratrol-SR™: Phytonutrients and Antioxidants
We know that antioxidants offer health benefits, but what are the benefits of phytonutrients? Resveratrol is an antioxidant. That means it fights against damage caused by free radicals in your body. Free radical damage contributes to aging as your cells and tissues wear down from the damage.
The phytonutrients found in plants help fight against harmful organisms and health threats. Phytonutrients, such as Resveratrol, are great for boosting cell communication and immune function. The same is true with the human body; phytonutrients can aid our health defense system.
Phytonutrient intake has been associated with lower risks of harmful ailments. This suggests that Resveratrol-SR™ can be a powerful tool for health protection, among its other benefits.* Increased healthy blood flow is another mechanism that Resveratrol-SR™ employs to provide adequate oxygen and effect healing properties for your organs.*
With the combined effects of Resveratrol-SR™’s antioxidant and phytonutrient benefits, your skin health and overall wellness will be taken to the next level.*
