The one supplement you need for glowing skin
It’s a no-brainer that the food we eat has a direct correlation to the way our skin looks – and the same notion can be applied to our supplements. It’s just that remembering to take them every day isn’t always as easy as it sounds, is it? A line-up of amber jars is sometimes just too much at 7am, which is why the team at Swisse have combined the best complexion-boosting ingredients into one product – Swisse Ultiboost Radiant Skin. Read on to find out how the superstar ingredients in this skin-loving supplement provide the building blocks you need to achieve glowing skin.
Collagen for fine lines and wrinkles
Collagen is integral for skin elasticity and structure. This is one of the most abundant proteins in the human body but our body’s ability to create and store collagen is reduced as we age, leading to dry skin, dullness, and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. By taking a collagen supplement, you’re also giving your body a boost when it comes to producing collagen of its own, so it’s a win-win!
Vitamin C for that glow factor
This wonder vitamin, like collagen, supports healthy skin function and structure but it also helps in the formation of collagen and elastin – so you need to make sure you’re getting enough of it in order for your body to create and store that collagen. Thanks to its antioxidant properties, Vitamin C has the added bonus of protecting skin from free radical damage caused by chemicals and toxins in your diet and environment, which can accelerate premature ageing. Plus, it helps to create a healthier looking complexion by plumping the skin and encouraging it to retain more moisture.
Vitamin A for skin renewal
An essential nutrient in both skin and eye health, Vitamin A helps stimulate the production of new skin cells and also the production of collagen in the body. The retinoids in Vitamin A are considered effective for treating acne as well as helping to even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and age spots.
Grapeseed extract for damage protection
This powerful antioxidant helps to improve the overall appearance of your skin by fighting free radicals and protecting the skin from damage associated with the sun, pollution, stress and of course, cigarette smoke. Grapeseed is another best friend of collagen as it bonds with the protein and helps it to carry out those incredible skin-supporting duties more effectively.
