DailyColors™ and Your Skin
PhytoColors™ and Your Skin
The condition of your skin is an outward sign of inner health. Which means that increasing phyto-nutrient intake should be at least as much part of a skin care routine as a moisturizer.
That’s because your skin encounters external challenges like ultraviolet radiation and pollution, as well as internal challenges, like as stress and lack of sleep. These create both free radical damage and inflammation.
Color phyto-nutrients are powerful antioxidants and have an anti-inflammatory effect. They help reduce oxidative and inflammatory stress on skin cells by accumulating in the inner layers of the skin and enhancing the skin’s natural defense mechanisms.
Sun exposure is a key factor in what is called ‘photoaging’ – where UVB rays penetrate through the epidermal (outermost) layer of the skin, resulting in DNA mutations. Indeed, it may be responsible for as much as 80% of visible skin damage.
Other studies4 have added a further reason to boost your intake of phyto-nutrients. They appear to activate genes - (such as mmp-1) - that are directly involved in the maintenance of healthy collagen.
It is the synergy created by the combination of these nutrients that’s important. For example, a combination of tomato extract with rosemary extract has been shown to have a greater effect than each one alone. (For specialists in dermatology the combination increased the transcription of phase two enzymes3).
DailyColors™ includes a range of natural extracts that includes tomato, rosemary, olive fruit, grape, elderberry, blueberry and pomegranate – all of which can be expected to help improve skin condition.
