Phytonutrients and your skin

As your body’s largest organ, your skin has to take a lot of abuse just because so much of it is exposed to the environment. Pollutants and UV rays from the sun can do a lot of damage, causing free radicals to wreak havoc on skin cells, collagen, and elastin. When these elements are compromised, fine lines begin to appear, skin begins to droop and sag, and brown spots pop up where you don’t want them. To add insult to injury, your diet and lifestyle can also be contributing to the formation of free radicals. Fortunately, recent research has shown that there are some elements in nature that can keep these damaging particles under control: phytonutrients.

What are phytonutrients?

Phytonutrients are compounds found in plants that protect them from environmental damage, and studies are finding that they can also be beneficial to human health. By incorporating fruits and vegetables in your diet, you are building your natural defenses against a variety of health problems, including heart disease, osteoporosis, memory loss, and even some cancers. And of course, you’re giving your skin a better chance of combating the aging process, as well as many skin conditions.
Phytonutrients and Gratiae skin care products
Because Gratiae focuses on using only pure ingredients that include organic plants, there are plenty of phytonutrients in all of the skin care products. By using a product such as Gratiae Face Lift Facial Serum, you are fortifying your skin against the effects of free radicals: inflammation, stress, breakdown of cell membranes, and risk of skin cancer. As the anti-oxidant properties of the phytonutrients work against the free radicals, the fibers of the collagen and elastin are strengthened, and you’ll see those sags and expression lines begin to disappear.
Making sure that your diet provides enough phytonutrients to keep your body and skin healthy is a guessing game, at best. By making sure to include a topical application of these miracle-workers as a part of your Gratiae skin care regimen, you have the best chance of protecting your body’s largest organ from all the elements that are out to make you look older than you feel.
