7 POWERFUL PHYTONUTRIENTS TO PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM THE INSIDE
Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Antioxidant is formulated with seven super phytonutrients found in plants. Just as plants need antioxidants to protect them from damaging UV rays, so does your skin. Any source of light, even artificial, creates free radicals which cause premature ageing.
Protect your skin from the inside with Skin Antioxidant and keep it looking younger for longer!
Lutein and lycopene are both antioxidant carotenoid complexes that give plants their pigments. They are responsible for the vibrant orange, yellow and red colours in fruit and vegetables. As with all antioxidants, they both help to deactivate free radicals. In a study by the Institute of Experimental Dermatology, a sample group was given an antioxidant supplement containing the phytonutrients lycopene, lutein, betacarotene and selenium. After 10 weeks, skin density had increased by 7% and thickness had increased by 14%. Scaling and roughness decreased by 60% and 33% respectively. Lutein also protects skin against blue light, which is essential for preventing pigmentation and also for protecting eyesight.

ANTIOXIDANTS IN SKINCARE
When it comes to skincare, it’s important to remember that antioxidants work most effectively when used both orally and topically to protect against free radical damage.
“To get great skin, you need to make sure you’re consuming high levels of antioxidants. Eating the right foods will help, but you should also be taking them in supplement form”, says Lorraine Perretta, Head of Nutrition for the Advanced Nutrition Programme™ “Antioxidants work in synergy, so it’s not a good idea to take just one in isolation – for example taking a vitamin C supplement on its own won’t give you the breadth of protection you need.”
Just as oral antioxidants shouldn’t be taken in isolation, the same can be said for those that are applied topically. Dr Des Fernandes, a leading aesthetic surgeon and founder of Environ® Skin Care, recommends using a combination of several which all work in synergy. “When we supply the skin with high levels of vitamin C, we find that levels of vitamin A in the skin increase, this may be because vitamin C helps preserve vitamin A. We also find that levels of vitamin E rise. This is one of the reasons I believe that a brigade of antioxidants is so essential rather than the simple replacement of vitamin A or E” he concludes.
