In this article about why French women don’t get facelifts, it is interesting to see how the French (and many Europeans) view aging versus Americans.
The short answer to the anti aging skin question is:
1. Use a multi-level antioxidant like Antioxidant Defense Complex on your skin every day!
2. Use a mineral sunscreen on your skin every day!
3. Eat properly – have 5 x fruit and 5 x vegetable servings every day of your life!
The long answer:
Living on this planet is no picnic! It ages us. The sun and oxygen are the 2 major catalysts for aging by allowing rampant free radical damage to every cell in our body – and especially our skin…but then we don’t have any other planet to live on yet, so we must just cope with the aging effects of living on planet Earth.
The major spectrums of light that enable aging are Infra Red and Ultra Violet. Both of these come from the sun and affect us every single day of our lives – from the time it’s light in the morning until it is dark at night….they come through clouds, fog, and windows, so no need to fool yourself about never being affected by them…
Our body makes powerful antioxidants to help defend against these free radicals. They work really well when we are young, and then not so well as we age…. Mother Nature provides us with antioxidants in every fresh fruit and vegetable grown on this planet…to further help us combat the free radicals that affect every cell in our body. Eating 5 x fruit and 5 x vegetable servings EVERY DAY will help us maintain a strong fight against these free radicals. Processed food, junk food, fast food will do the opposite!
As the outermost organ of the body, the skin often gets the short-end of the stick when it comes to it’s share of the antioxidants in our body…that’s why skin aging often happens faster than any other organ aging. Science has shown that applying antioxidants on the skin from age 30 and up is a good strategy…..but now they are saying that applying antioxidants to the skin from a young age (teens and twenties) will help slow down the aging of the skin.
There is no such thing as a ‘super-antioxidant’ and that is all you need apply to the skin. That’s just marketing hype and spin… If it were the case, mother nature would just make 1 fruit and 1 vegetable and that’s all we’d eat – because the rest would be superfluous right? Yes, it’s wrong! We must consume a variety of antioxidants for our body to function properly and to slow down the aging process – it’s just the way that life IS on this planet!
So now that we have established that marketers spin and marketing hype is to be ignored, we need to address skin aging with powerful multitudes of organic antioxidants and combine them with a powerful inorganic sunscreen (the minerals zinc oxide and titanium dioxide).
Certain antioxidants like Vitamin A and C are also critical for the development of skin cells like collagen and elastin, so are important anti-aging ingredients in their own right. Yes, C + Renew will deliver great antioxidant power to the skin, but it is also being used as a primary stimulator of collagen and elastin fibres to make the skin act and look younger. It’s the esterized version of Vitamin C (Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate) that provides the anti-aging effects.
Try the Antioxidant Defense Complex 1.12oz with free shipping. It is an essential part of an anti-aging regimen because it helps fight the sun’s Infra Red damage to the skin while your Mineral Sunscreen SPF 35 or SPF 40 work at protecting your skin from the damaging Ultra Violet rays from the sun. 18 different antioxidants in 1 powerful product. Good for all skin types or used in place of a moisturizer by some oilier to combination skin types. Astaxanthin from micro algea create the orange tone. This provides a slight ‘self-tanning’ glow to the skin that looks good on most skin tones. Watch the SkinCareTV video on why antioxidants are important.
