Perhaps you’ve expended considerable effort to get your skin care routine just right. But now it’s bedtime and what do you do? You wash it all off!
Wouldn’t it be better if you could go through your routine but do so on a foundation of healthier, more hydrated, smoother skin?
What if you could increase, for instance, the thickness of the dermal layer just below the epidermis, and thereby begin with visibly smoother, plumper skin? You’d expect to obtain that much better results with application of your topical products.
Recall that the thickness of the dermal layer of skin and its content of collagen diminish with each year as we age.
One strategy that you are likely already familiar with is to orally supplement collagen peptides. The science is clear: two- and three-amino acid long peptides resist digestion and arrive intact in the dermal layer of skin and are uniquely able to stimulate production of collagen in the dermal layer and thicken skin, thereby yielding plumper, smoother skin.
But did you know that you can also supplement hyaluronic acid orally and add to these effects: greater moisture, smoothness, luster? Oral dosages are typically in the 100 mg per day range.
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that has the unusual capacity to bind water and increase dermal moisture. And it also adds to stimulating collagen production that adds to the effects of collagen peptides taken orally.
The combination of collagen and hyaluronic acid such as the combo found in Gut to Glow is particularly powerful for skin health and appearance, especially since it's paired with astaxanthin and our super microbe, Lactobacillus reuteri LRDR™.
Enjoy the effects of some of the new and interesting hyaluronic acid serums, retinols, bakuchiol and other products that restore a more youthful glow—at least during the day.
But don’t neglect skin health that you can obtain by actually rebuilding dermal collagen and moisture by adding orally-consumed components to your skin program.
