Forget “we are what we eat” -We look like what we eat, and what we put on our skin!
Not just our waistlines, but our skin can benefit from a healthy diet rich in fruits, veggies, and vitamins. Vitamins A, C, & E, Niacin, Biotin, and Omega 3 Fatty Acids are essential to good skin and overall health. Radiance carries Cosmedix, Results RX, Glymed, and SkinMedica Professional Skin Care Products that contain many of these important vitamins.
Our skin’s second layer, the dermis, contains all the collagen that gives our skin its lovely plumpness and elasticity. Vitamin A helps increase collagen production and gives us fuller firmer skin. Also, since Vitamin A is an antioxidant, it helps repair free radical damage to skin cells that lead to wrinkling and sagging. It can be found in sweet potatoes, leafy greens, broccoli, and colorful produce such as carrots and red bell peppers. Vitamin A is a primary ingredient in our Refine RX Vitamin A Resurfacing Serum and Results RX A Solution which can be found here at Radiance.
Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, and is excellent at stopping free radicals before they do any damage. Good sources are red bell peppers, broccoli, strawberries, papaya and pineapple. At Radiance, we offer you Glymed Daily Repair Mega-Moisture Cream andCosmedix Pure C Mixing Crystals, which are exactly that-pure Vitamin C crystals that dissolve and become active when mixed with your daily moisturizer.
Vitamin E, another antioxidant, is important in protection of skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution, drugs, and other elements that produce cell damaging free radicals. Vitamin E can be found in wheat germ oil, sunflower seeds, and almonds. SkinMedica TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream and Cosmedix Affirm are excellent sources for Vitamin E to help turn your skin around.
Radiance also offers Glymed Plus Cell Protection Serum which has Vitamins A, C & E, along with Ceramides in one power packed bottle!
Niacin has been found to help strengthen the skin’s barrier, by both hydrating cells and acting as an anti-inflammatory. It also increases blood flow for additional oxygen and nutrition to the skin. Good food sources are chicken, tuna, pork chops, and wheat flour. Biotin helps hair and nails grow, and is considered to aid skin-cell turnover, which keeps your face looking fresh. It is found in eggs, avocado and salmon.
Niacin and Biotin, both B Vitamins, can be found at Radiance a number of ways. We offer Vitamin B12 shots, Lipo-B shots, RevitaPOP Vitamin B Lolly-Pops and Designs for Health Vitamin B Supreme.
Omega 3 Fatty Acids are an essential ingredient in our beautiful skin diet. They can help us rejuvenate flaky dry skin. Flaxseed and canola oil are excellent sources. At Radiance, we offer Designs for Health OmegAvail Ultra which provides 2400 mg of Omega 3 fatty acids per day.
