There is a debate on the effectiveness of anti-aging creams and dietary supplements that keep the skin in a youthful state. Which are effective and which are not? Proponents of the use of creams claim that the vitamins contained in the creams, which are applied topically, effectively prevent skin aging and cause the alignment of wrinkles. Advocates of dietary supplements believe that only vitamins and oxidants that we take in oral form have an effective rejuvenating effect. How do you choose dietary supplements and anti-aging vitamins?
It is known that free radicals destroy cells in the body and also in human skin and antioxidants effectively prevent this. Free radicals are a natural product that arises as a result of processes occurring in the living body. However, the amount of free radicals can be increased by exposure to various environmental factors, including ultraviolet (UV) radiation. An increased amount of free radicals accelerates the aging process.
Dietary supplements and anti-aging vitamins.
There are three antioxidants that effectively reduce the harmful effect of the sun on the skin and prevent damage to the skin by UV rays: selenium, vitamin E and vitamin C.
Selenium is a chemical element that helps protect the body against the risk of cancer, including skin cancer, which is caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Selenium also affects the elasticity of tissues and slows down the hardening of tissues, which is a consequence of oxidation. Selenium sources include whole grain cereals, seafood, garlic and eggs.
According to current knowledge, vitamin E is a very important antioxidant because it protects cell membranes. Natural sources of vitamin E are, for example: vegetable oils (sunflower oil), grains, oats, nuts and dairy products. According to dermatologists, the use of vitamin E can reduce damage caused by exposure to sunlight and reduce the production of cancer cells. In order to reduce wrinkles and to improve the texture of the skin, it is recommended to use 400 milligrams of vitamin E a day.
Vitamin C is just as important an antioxidant as vitamin E – it effectively eliminates free radicals, prevents cancer and slows down the aging process. Ascorbic acid also helps in the fight against seborrhea and acne. Smoking, exposure to the sun and exposure to contaminated environments – deprive the skin of nutrients. Therefore, it is necessary to provide the right dose of vitamins through supplementation.
Creating a skin cream that would provide the skin with the right amount of vitamins is difficult because the beneficial ingredients are quickly oxidized and become unusable. However, there are dietary supplements that can help in this situation. The LAMININE supplement acts against aging as an antioxidant and is recommended for skin problems, psoriasis, acne and non-healing wounds. The recommended dose is two to six capsules a day, depending on the severity of the disease symptoms.
