Healthy, glowing skin – from the inside-out!
A youthful glow looks effortless. And while it can be effortless in our early years – this look
requires more investment as we age. Thankfully, there are many treatments at the IV that keep up our youthful glow even into our later years. The main factors that can help with maintaining, or regaining, ageless skin are: having building blocks for collagen formation, antioxidants to protect skin, and a healthy lifestyle to support our anti-aging efforts.
Building Blocks for Collagen Formation
Collagen makes connective tissue and is one of the most important proteins in our bodies. It
helps to make tissues strong, resilient, and able to withstand stretching. To make collagen in our bodies we need plenty of its precursors as well as additional nutrients to promote formation such as glycine, proline, zinc and vitamin C.
Antioxidants to Protect the Skin
Professionals agree that antioxidants help fight damage and maintain healthy skin by
protecting against the effects of the sun and reducing inflammation. Vitamin C levels need to be high in skin to stimulate collagen and protect against UV damage. Vitamin C is also essential for immune support and, in high doses, acts as an anti-viral. Glutathione has been shown to decrease dark spots on skin, increase elasticity and reduce wrinkles, and is therefore a very popular IV treatment across the world. This antioxidant has numerous other health benefits such as liver and brain support.
A Healthy Lifestyle
A healthy glow from the inside-out also includes important lifestyle factors such as:
- Wear sunscreen (SPF) and exfoliate with high quality products such as Alumier MD (now available at the IV)
- Get plenty of sleep to improve regeneration of healthy skin
- Avoid pollutants like smoking and alcohol
- Stay hydrated to keep skin plump
At the IV, we offer many treatments that help people of all ages maintain and get back their
glow. The above nutrients (and more!) are found in our Eternal Youth Premium IV – newly
launched this month.
