The first signs of ageing in our skin are: the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet and loss of luminosity and elasticity.
These signs are due to several factors:
Firstly, the loss of collagen, which is what gives elasticity to our skin. From the age of 35, our body loses the ability to produce collagen and therefore, we need to find it in external sources. Hyaluronic acid is the great ally of collagen, since it has the ability to retain fluid and thus keep the skin hydrated.
The second factor is free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that have lost an electron and go, as it were, as crazy about our body trying to recover the lost electron. When this electron is taken from the skin’s collagen tissue, the latter loses its elasticity and looks dry and wrinkled. Free radicals appear in normal body processes such as food metabolism, breathing and exercise. We are also exposed to elements of the environment that create free radicals such as industrial pollution, tobacco, solar radiation, medications, and chemical additives in processed foods and pesticides, just to name the most common. The way to fight free radicals is by ingesting antioxidants.
Nutribel, with its anti-ageing formulas, Beauty-Bel and Collagen-Bel, includes collagen, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. These should be taken as a complement to a balanced diet and exercise. And they will delay the appearance of those signs of ageing.
