Nourish Your Skin With Skin Accumax

Healthy skin isn’t just about lotions and potions. In order to provide your body with the resources it needs to keep your skin looking healthy, it’s a good idea to choose the correct supplement with the right vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Skin Accumax by Advanced Nutrition Programme is a supplement we stand behind and highly recommend! It has all of the right vitamins to keep your skin clear, glowing and healthy.

The Basic Building Blocks

You probably already know that your body constantly sheds old dead skin cells and makes new ones to replace them. As skin experts, we often talk about how an excess of dead cells can clog pores and create acne lesions, or how exfoliating helps to loosen dead skin and show off the healthy cells underneath. One of the things that we don’t talk about very often is how you can assist your body with this process. Skin Accumax has four key ingredients that help ensure your body has the tools it needs to maintain a vibrant layer of healthy skin. 

Vitamin A

The first of the four key ingredients, Vitamin A helps regulate many important functions that directly affect your skin. First and foremost, it promotes healthy blood flow. Your skin is an organ too, and it needs a fresh supply of oxygen and nutrients from your blood in order to thrive. Vitamin A helps ensure that your blood flows evenly through all of the thin capillaries in your skin and can even help reduce rosacea symptoms.

Second, Vitamin A acts as a gentle moisturizer. It reduces sebum production, increases hydration, and even helps your skin heal faster. This is a crucial vitamin when treating acne. It won’t magically clear up a tough case of pimples on its own, but it is incredibly effective at supporting your other efforts to keep your face clear.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps your skin produce collagen. This means that it will reduce swelling, redness and wrinkles while making sure your skin keeps its elasticity and smoothness. It has also been shown to help combat free radicals, lighten sun damage and heal PIH (post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation). While this won’t let you skip sunscreen, it will help your skin fight off any UV rays that make it through your sun protection.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E works on many of the same issues as Vitamin C. It helps deal with free radicals, heals the skin, moisturizes your skin effectively and is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. So why have both? The answer is simple: Vitamins C and E work best together. Research has shown that taking both Vitamin C and Vitamin E creates a synergistic effect that gives you much better results than taking either on its own. Skin Accumax is a carefully balanced blend of both vitamins to ensure your body gets the most out of every dose.

Diindolylmethane

Diindolylmethane (or DIM) is a complex chemical called a phytonutrient that is found in dark leafy greens such as broccoli. There is a lot of promising new research that suggests that DIM is involved in how your body processes estrogen. Specifically, DIM is an adaptogen that helps your liver get rid of the bad estrogens in your body keeping you balanced.

This has some wide-reaching effects on your health, all of which are positive. Even a slight imbalance can lead to reproductive issues, massive acne outbreaks, or an increased risk of pre-cancerous cells.

DIM has been shown to reduce inflammation and visible signs of age. While it is not talked about very often, it’s been used as a supplement for over 15 years due to its powerful positive properties.

The Most Powerful Tools

While your regular multivitamin might have vitamins A, C, and E inside of each dose, it probably doesn’t have any DIM. DIM is a powerful tool that helps your body deal with the negative effects of estrogen in a unique, natural and safe way. It’s an incredibly effective supplement that can have very pronounced positive effects on your skin. Not all supplements are made equally. When choosing a supplement make sure it made with high quality ingredients, and ethically sourced. We choose Advanced Nutrition due to its level of bioavailability, quality, efficacy, and results.
