HEALTHY LIFESTYLE, HEALTHY SKIN.
Ever noticed how whatever is going on in our life seems to show on our face?
If we’re stressed, we can expect acne and dark circles under our eyes. If we’re dehydrated, our skin looks dry and flaky. If we’re sick, our face appears pale. Eat or drink too much and we wake up with puffy skin. But get a stretch of feeling great, exercising and eating right, and we positively glow with health. A healthy diet provides the nutrients that skin needs to stay strong and stretchy, and to regenerate itself.
A healthy lifestyle is one which helps to keep and improve your health and well-being. There are many different things that you can do to live a healthy lifestyle, such as eating healthy, being physically active, maintaining a healthy weight, and managing your stress.
Some lifestyle habits can cause premature skin ageing and result in unhealthy skin.
What you eat and how stressful your life is affecting how healthy your skin is.
Spending a lot of time in the sun can also cause premature skin ageing, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, and brown spots (known as age spots) on your face and the top of your hands.
Frequent sun exposure causes thickening of your skin, making it rough and leathery. And even weakens the elastin and collagen in the skin. Frequent sun exposure also damages skin cells, putting you at increased risk for skin cancer.
WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR YOUR SKIN?
Crystal Tomato Plus is one of the first food supplements in the world to offer benefits for the skin from a unique breed of non-genetically modified white tomatoes. Containing Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids which have been scientifically proven to offer overall skin whitening and brightening benefits with certain health benefits.
Crystal Tomato® Carotenoids offer invisible protection from environmental damaging factors and have been proven scientifically to benefit the skin and improve overall health.
HOW DOES CRYSTAL TOMATO PLUS HELP YOU?
Many dietary carotenoids, both with and without pro-vitamin A activity, are found distributed throughout human tissues including the plasma and skin. But compared to other carotenoids, Crystal Tomato Carotenoids have the highest accumulation factor in the skin.
They act as a natural sunscreen. Being first carotenoid precursors in the biosynthetic pathway of other carotenoids, unlike other carotenoids, they lack any visible colour and they absorb light in the ultraviolet range which makes them ideal for offering protection against UVA/B damage from within.
Crystal Tomato® Plus is targeted at controlling pigmentation by inhibiting melanin synthesis in order to brighten, lighten and whiten the complexion. Unlike orange or red carotenoids, like beetroots/ carrots for an example which change the skin’s colour to a tan or orange shade when consumed in large amounts, Crystal Tomato Carotenoids do not contain any visible colour that will tint the skin.
It has been scientifically proven that Crystal Tomato Carotenoids can effectively help in reducing the amount of melanin that is already present in the cells including those in dark acne scars, freckles, dark underarms and age spots.
Crystal Tomato Carotenoids is also a super antioxidant that has the ability to absorb light within the UVA/B range and subsequently block free radicals from the UV rays. It is proven to help increase protection of DNA and cell damage against free radical damage by environmental aggressors.
Crystal Tomato Carotenoids has anti-inflammatory properties that work against wounds and UV damage to aid in wound healing.
I’m sure we have all heard of glutathione being very useful for our skin. Without glutathione, cells will die at a faster rate, leading to quicker ageing.
To increase the efficacy of Crystal Tomato Plus, an amino acid L-Cysteine is included. L-Cysteine also helps to boost the liver’s production of glutathione, commonly referred to as the body’s master antioxidant, to maintain skin health and lighten dark skin and pigmentation.
