Re­vi­talise skin from the in­side

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY -

HAVE you ever dreamed of hav­ing fair, rosy skin? Well, who doesn’t want to flaunt a glow­ing, fair com­plex­ion? It is in your in­ter­est to take good care of your skin to make sure it looks good.

The sun gives you light but at the same time, it emits UV rays, which are one of your skin’s worst en­e­mies. UV rays that reach the Earth’s sur­face break down into two types of dif­fer­ent wave­lengths – UVA and UVB.

UVA rays ac­count for ap­prox­i­mately 95% of the UV ra­di­a­tion. It can pen­e­trate deep into your skin, dam­ag­ing the cells be­neath. They are re­spon­si­ble for long- term skin dam­age, in­clud­ing pre­ma­ture skin age­ing and wrin­kling. On the other hand, UVB rays only per­me­ate the top layer of the skin and cause sun­burn.

Both UVA and UVB ra­di­a­tion prompt melanocytes in the skin to pro­duce melanin pig­ment. The in­crease in melanin re­sults in tan­ning, whereby the skin tone is dark­ened. This is the skin’s at­tempt to pro­tect it­self from sub­se­quent UV dam­age. Over time, the cu­mu­la­tive ef­fects of UV ra­di­a­tion may dam­age the DNA in skin cells and po­ten­tially lead to skin can­cer.

While it is im­por­tant to pro­tect your skin from the out­side, re­mem­ber, healthy glow­ing skin should be­gin from within. For ul­ti­mate pro­tec­tion, you need to fuel your body with the nour­ish­ment it needs.

L- glu­tathione skin light­en­ing mir­a­cle

L- glu­tathione is a nat­u­ral com­pound pro­duced by the hu­man body through the syn­the­sis of the amino acids: L- cys­teine, L- glu­tamic acid and glycine. Yet, your body’s abil­ity to make L- glu­tathione tends to de­crease as you age. Tox­ins from pol­lu­tion, poor diet, cer­tain med­i­ca­tions and stress can fur­ther drain L- glu­tathione from your body.

Hence, it is es­sen­tial to re­plen­ish the L- glu­tathione lev­els in the body with oral sup­ple­men­ta­tion. A good L- glu­tathione sup­ple­ment con­tains a com­bi­na­tion of L- glu­tathione with its pre­cur­sors, N-acetyl- Lcys­teine ( NAC) and other po­tent an­tiox­i­dants such as al­pha lipoic acid ( ALA) and vi­ta­min C, which po­ten­tially pro­mote the pro­duc­tion and ef­fec­tive­ness of L- glu­tathione in the body.

Re­garded as the body’s mas­ter an­tiox­i­dant, L- glu­tathione safe- guards the skin cells from the sun’s UV ra­di­a­tion and coun­ter­acts its dam­ag­ing ef­fects.

It nat­u­rally re­vi­talises and light­ens the skin from the in­side out, lead­ing to a vi­brant, fair and youth­ful com­plex­ion.

It works by in­hibit­ing the skin pig­men­ta­tion process, re­vers­ing the melanin's me­tab­o­lism from eu­me­lanin ( dark pig­ment) to pheome­lanin ( light pig­ment) and quench­ing the free rad­i­cals and per­ox­ides that con­trib­ute to melanin for­ma­tion.

L- glu­tathione is more than just for skin health. It also sup­ports the body’s nat­u­ral detox­i­fi­ca­tion process and op­ti­mises the im­mune sys­tem.

Hence, it is a good idea to start sup­ply­ing your body with ad­e­quate amounts of L- glu­tathione for clear

skin and good health as a whole.
