As a Nutritional Therapist, I believe in treating the skin holistically, to achieve long-lasting results. Our skin is our largest organ and gives us a great insight to our health status from the inside out. What you are absorbing into your body through the food you eat and the skincare you apply topically, plays a huge roll in skin health.
Products containing chemical, parabens, fragrances etc. compromise the immunity of your skin and weakens its own natural protective barrier.
To compliment Nutritional Support to improve Skin health I came across a Holistic Science based Skincare brand called Osmosis. What drew me to this brand is their philosophy of analysing the skin and body to treat skin conditions at the source, restoring beauty and wellness.
Some of my favourite ingredients that are used in their Cleansers, Serums and Moisturisers include:
Bromelain and Papain– these fruit enzymes that are naturally found in Pineapple and Papaya are effective in the gentle removal of impurities and make-up from your skin.
Retinaldehyde– a plant-based Vitamin A that promotes cellular turnover, reduces the signs of ageing and heals the skin.
Nicinamide– This is a form of Niacin, which is a B vitamin. This is important for bringing energy to the cells, offering anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, improving epidermal barrier function and reducing pigmentation.
Ascorbic Acid– Water soluble Vitamin C triggers the amino acids to strengthen collagen and assist in brightening and smoothing skin.
L-Glutathione– The most powerful antioxidant the plays a major role in cellular detoxification and assists in cellular respiration.
Osmosis goes the extra mile to treat your skin conditions through supplementation.
As we come out of winter and embrace Spring, two supplements that will help you spring clean your skin are:
A product that everyone could do with and especially for anyone with low immunity or compromised skin conditions like Acne, Rosacea and Pigmentation. It helps fight viruses and infections, repairing and improving your Immune System.
This works to achieve hormonal balance between the skin and body. It works on the detoxification pathways to eliminate toxins from the gut and cells with the ingredients DIM and Charcoal. Glutathione and Cacao give an antioxidant boost to protect the skin and body from free radicals.
Winter can be a stressful time for our skin. Thankfully as we move into Spring, happier times are in sight for our skin. As we begin to expose our skin more in the warmer weather there is a distinct desire to restore skin radiance. What better time to invest in your skin, and for me, Osmosis is the brand that serves not only to give you long lasting results but to educate and empower you to take control of your skin and achieve optimal skin health.
