Connecting Science to Skin Care
In a recent study conducted by Nu Skin, Stanford, and Harvard using the Pharmanex Biophotonic Scanner, results indicated UV exposure has a negative impact on skin carotenoid levels—a key indicator of overall internal antioxidant levels. This study offers new insight into the connection between UV exposure and our overall health—and yet another compelling reason to protect our skin from UV damage on a regular basis.
We know sun protection is required for anyone desiring a young, healthy appearance. And as our endogenous stores of antioxidants provide vital defense from dangerous skin-aging free radical damage, it also makes sense to supplement our skin's own natural defenses with topical antioxidant application. Listed below are several popular Nu Skin® products that provide critical UV protection or supplement the skin's antioxidant defense system:
Moisture Restore™ Day Protective Lotions SPF 15: provide UVA and UVB protection and colorless carotenoids to enhance your skin's natural resistance to the environment, promoting a healthy, youthful looking complexion.
Nu Skin 180® UV Block Hydrator SPF 18: protects, defends, and hydrates your skin. Blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Also features DNA enzymes from sea plankton, which mimic the skin's natural cellular recovery system.
Tri-Phasic White™ Day Lotion: contains both UVA and UVB sunscreens to help prevent sun damage while other key ingredients work to prevent new skin discolorations from forming for a brighter, more even complexion.
Celltrex® Ultra Recovery Fluid: is an antioxidant-rich nourishing serum that features patented hydroxytyrosol, a tissue-nurturing nutrient shown to mitigate free radical induced cellular inflammation. Celltrex® Ultra is a must for those who experience even the slightest signs of occasional redness on their skin as chronic, sub-clinical inflammation is now understood to accelerate skin aging.
Celltrex® CoQ10 Complete: features the protective antioxidant networking power of CoQ10, along with vitamins C, E, and colorless carotenoids to ensure greater CoQ10 effectiveness. The combination of Pharmanex NanoCoQ10 and Celltrex® CoQ10 Complete supports skin firmness and resiliency by replenishing vital nutrients that are naturally lost as a result of age and environmental stressors.
Sunright® BodyBlock SPF 15 and 30, and Sunright® Lip Balm SPF 15: provide durable protection from the intense exposure to UVA and UVB rays during outdoor recreation.
Nu Colour® MoisturShade® Liquid Finish SPF 15 and Nu Colour® Skin Beneficial™ Tinted Moisturizer: enhance the natural beauty of your complexion instantly while providing protection from the future skin aging effects of sun exposure.
