No matter a woman’s age, it is always a confidence booster to both look and feel good--and one way to achieve this is by having beautiful skin that defies the years.
Women often use several products to make sure they show off youthful skin. There are also traditional means to help maintain skin's beauty such as honey and dark chocolate.
A well-known natural skin beautifier, honey, became popular because of its storied use by legendary beauty Cleopatra. Other items such as essential oils, chocolate, and tea, meanwhile, are thought to have antioxidant benefits.
How do these items help beauty bloom? Just like products on the market, their benefits are due to their composition.
A study published on the US National Library of Medicine website said that honey's use in traditional medicine is warranted because almost all natural honey contain a combination of components that work together to provide an antioxidant effect.
Dark chocolate meanwhile can also help the body when consumed, said experts, because of flavonoids, which also provide an antioxidant effect.
While these benefits have been observed via traditional means, it cannot be denied, however, that some women cannot afford to spend so much time choosing, applying, or eating the best ingredients for skin care. Some also need to shave time off their routine.
To cut time and effort in maintaining beauty, a new 'super nutrient', astaxanthin, is now available. It has unique properties not commonly found in other antioxidants which makes its activity exceptional.
Astaxanthin is an ingredient present in vitamin-based skin care solutions. It is a powerful antioxidant that helps reverse the signs of aging, helping women look their best at any age.
Astaxanthin is derived from freshwater microalgae, and is known as the 'king of carotenoids,' a powerful antioxidant that fights skin aging. It also helps stimulate the production of collagen for skin elasticity, and can function as an internal sunscreen, preventing skin damage.
Astaxanthin is also known help reduce fine lines and lighten dark spots as it helps improve the appearance and quality of the skin while, at the same time, preserving skin health.
With the right combination of beauty components, every woman can find it easier to get youthful-looking skin.
