Stress can quickly make the skin look old. This is because it increases the formation of free radicals, which can damage our cells. Many vitamins, minerals and secondary phytochemicals found in food are effective in combating free radicals. These cell protectors are referred to as “antioxidants.” One important representative is OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidins), the main active ingredient of Vinoble Cosmetics products.
Vitamin A strengthens mucous membranes and supports natural regeneration processes. The human body is able to produce this vitamin itself from the secondary plant substance beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is deposited in the outer layers of the skin, protecting it against UV radiation, among other things. Good sources of beta-carotene include carrots and parsley.
Vitamin C plays a major role in synthesizing collagen. Collagen is a key component of connective tissue (bones, teeth, cartilage, tendons, ligaments) and the skin, making it responsible for the structure, stability and strength of the body. Nature has gifted us some real vitamin C bombs, such as grapes. Bell peppers, broccoli, potatoes and fresh fruit can also be easily integrated into everyday life. And with secondary phytochemicals from fresh herbs and spices, you can improve the absorption of vitamin C even further.
Vitamin E has an anti-inflammatory effect, which is why it is also known as the “anti-aging vitamin.” Good sources of vitamin E include sunflower oil, wheat germ oil and almonds.
Zinc reduces excessive sebum production, supports wound healing, and stimulates healthy skin renewal. Your diet should include organic meat and eggs, poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds, pecans, oatmeal, lentils and cocoa.
With the right skin care, sufficient water, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidant foods, we can help the skin to stay healthy, radiant and firm for a long time – both inside and out.
Tip: The highly efficient combination of active ingredients in our regenerating concentrate also protects the skin’s cells against oxidizing environmental effects by counteracting free radicals, thereby preventing premature aging of the skin.
