How MenoGlow Repairs Your Sun-Damaged Skin
MenoLabs News | 0
We've been talking a lot about skincare and skin health this month. Now that we know the dangers of sun damage and some of the ways we can help prevent it, the question is, what can we do to repair it? More importantly, how can probiotics help repair sun damage done to the skin?
What Happens When Your Skin is Sun Damaged?
When your skin experiences sun damage, it affects everything from its texture to its immune response. Prolonged exposure to UV light rays can dry out your skin, inhibit collagen production, and destroy folic acid. It can cause your skin to become loose and sag. It can increase the number of wrinkles and fine lines. It can increase your chances of contracting illnesses, like bacterial infections and viruses.
While you may take every precaution to reduce sun damage to your skin, your skin can still undergo small amounts of sun damage if exposed for long enough. There are many ways to help repair sun damage. Drinking 8 glasses of water a day can help skin retain some moisture and elasticity. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables can give you the antioxidants your skin needs to help support a healthy immune response.
But what can you do if you're not getting enough of those things in a day? How can you better round-out your skin's needs to help it repair itself? You can take probiotic supplements.
How Does MenoGlow Help Your Skin?
MenoGlow probiotic supplements are full of probiotic and prebiotic ingredients that can help support skin health. These ingredients have been specifically chosen to help support the skin's immune health so that skin is better able to repair itself. The primary ingredients in the MenoGlow blend that help repair skin are Hyaluronic Acid, Astaxanthin Complex, and Lactobacillus Paracasei.
Hyaluronic Acid: Keep Skin Elastic and Moist
You may recognize this ingredient from a number of different topical creams and facial skincare products. That's because this ingredient is particularly helpful in helping skin stay hydrated. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin. It attracts and holds up to 1000x its weight in moisture, and this moisture is what causes the skin to feel soft and supple.
As women age, hyaluronic acid begins to deplete, causing the skin to become dry and loose. While hyaluronic acid creams may help increase moisture on the skin's surface, it's important to recognize that creams can't penetrate through all layers of the skin. The best way to supply the deeper layers of skin tissues with moisture is through supplements.
Astaxanthin Complex: Protect Immune Health with Antioxidants
Astaxanthin is a pigment commonly found in algae, fish, and other sea creatures and gives them their color. It's also an antioxidant and helps reduce something called oxidative stress. Oxidates stress is an imbalance between antioxidants and free radicals (i.e., toxins, bacteria, viruses, etc.) in your body, and your skin is the most susceptible to oxidative stress.
Lactobacillus Paracasei: Reduces Skin Sensitivity
Lactobacillus Paracasei is a bacterial strain that can help keep skin healthy in a variety of ways. Most importantly, it can help reduce skin sensitivity. Skin can become more sensitive to changes in weather and temperature as women go through menopause. If you experience stinging sensations on your skin when the wind is high or when the temperature outside is cold, you might be experiencing higher skin sensitivity.
Skin sensitivity is when the nerve endings in the upper layers of the skin become overly-active. When these nerves are over-active, they respond to tiny changes in temperature, textures, and other factors by sending pain signals to the brain. This is what causes stinging, burning, and itching sensations.
How can this affect your skin's health? Sensitive skin is most commonly caused by prolonged sun exposure, and as we know, this can negatively affect your skin's immune response and increase your risk of bacterial infections, viruses, and other illnesses. When these nerve cells become overactive, it triggers an inflammatory response in your skin.
Lactobacillus Paracasei helps reduce skin sensitivity by preventing these nerve cells from becoming overactive and lowering inflammation. When these nerve endings operate at a normal activity level, the skin doesn't become as sensitive to an outside stimulus, and the skin's immune health stabilizes.
Be Proactive to Repair Your Skin
Repairing your skin may seem impossible, but it can be achieved with the right tools. Drinking water and consuming antioxidants are just the first step to repairing sun-damaged skin. MenoGlow's ingredients are designed to help you repair your skin with ease.
