Slowing the effects of aging ... naturally

In the quest for youthfulness, drastic skin-altering treatments may compromise that age-old quality we know as natural beauty. Unfortunately this wonderful quality cannot be bought or sold in a single transaction.

Natural beauty is the result of caring for your body and skin, both from the inside-out and from the outside-in. World renowned anti-aging specialist Dr. Perricone MD has suggested that premature aging or wrinkling is the result of inflammation at a cellular level due largely to the effect of free radicals that exert their actions through the diet we eat, as well as through external environmental factors, such as excessive UV exposure, smoking and air pollution.

In keeping with a natural holistic approach, he recommends a 3-tiered approach in turning back the clock - at least as far as the appearance of the skin is concerned:

Tier One: Nutrition – This is what he calls an anti-inflammatory diet, consisting largely of healthy fats, such as those found in cold water fish, nuts, seeds and olive oil, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and anti-oxidant-rich foods such as barley green and green tea. Add to this 8-10 glasses of fresh water per day.

Tier two:  Nutritional Supplements - In addition to the complete spectrum of vitamins and minerals that have powerful antioxidant activity, he recommends other anti-inflammatory nutriceuticals such as alpha-lipoic acid, Vitamin C ester, Omega 3 essential fatty acids, Co-enzyme Q10,  and amino acids such as L-carnitine.

Tier 3: Topical Applications - Dr Perricone’s  research, along with many others,  has shown that any ingredient that has anti-inflammatory effects from the inside out can also be applied topically. Topical application of the above-listed powerful antioxidants therefore work synergistically to enhance the natural health and beauty of the skin.

Add to this some regular exercise to improve circulation and lift metabolism, and you have the best possible opportunity to deliver powerful, efficacious benefits to the skin, resulting in a smooth, youthful, supple, toned and radiant appearance to face and body – an elegant balance between external and internal beauty!

If natural beauty is what you desire, then the natural methods need to be applied with some degree of commitment. The whole-hearted embrace of a self-caring approach rather than a self – altering approach will exude an attractive energy that becomes evident to all around you….. for the long term.  reNu Organic Skincare anti-aging serum contains powerful antioxidants in a predominantly plant oil base that provides nutritional value, softens, exfoliates, moisturises and eliminates some of the fine wrinkles associated with aging.
