Co-founder of Women To Women, Marcelle Pick, puts it aptly when she said that the key to beautiful skin is “what you put in your body" than what you put on it. This is because of after years of research, science has demonstrated that skin aging is not chronological but biological - thus can be delayed or reversed. Pick recommends "a natural and holistic approach that includes optimal diet, healthier lifestyle and smarter product choices.”
The Nutricosmetics Way To Beautiful Skin
Nutricosmetics are natural health supplements formulated to support the structure, function, appearance and health of the skin, hair and nails by nourishing the body to bring out beauty from within. Swedish biochemist Ake Dahlgren, known as the Father of “Internal Skincare”, states that skin cells are capable of absorbing nutrients (bioavailability) - thus improving skin’s appearance. Nutrients such as Vitamin C has a well-researched anti-oxidant effect that reduces the impact of free radicals. Phytoceramides are now widely regarded as a potent ingredient for preserving youthful and healthy skin, and are widely used in anti-aging skincare products. Carotenes and flavonoids have been shown to protect the skin from UV damage. So you can literally eat your way to a lovely skin as envisioned by Dahlgren: Beautiful skin begins from within.
