Healthy Ageing at Lumia – From the Inside Out

 

HEALTHY AGEING AT LUMIA

FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Beauty is only skin deep..

We are all about helping our clients at Lumia look fabulous, more youthful, and fresh faced but having regular facial treatments and using regular quality skincare is only one side of the coin.

Extensive research has now shown that our diet and lifestyle can have a massive effect on how slowly we are ageing.

Many of the physical effects we call ageing are as a result of free radical damage and no matter how healthy we try to be we are subject to free radical damage from:

  • Stress
  • Pollution
  • UV light
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Lack of sleep
  • Dehydration
  • Biggest factor – Poor diet – foods rich in refined carbohydrates and sugars are more likely to generate free radicals;

As we age your body also starts to lose its natural defences against free radicals which in turn makes the process even worse. Free radicals, then, are the great villains of your body and, as we all know, every good villain needs a hero to fight back. Welcome our caped crusaders – antioxidants. Antioxidants effectively lend the free radicals a missing electron, filling the shell and making them stable once more and reducing the impact of ageing.

Antioxidants inside and out

Antioxidants are the hardest-working skin-care ingredients in the game. Not only do they scavenge free radicals—the number one skin-aging culprits—to promote a brighter, more even complexion, they’re also the superstars at fixing fine lines and keeping skin looking fresh. Antioxidants are often considered the fountain of youth by skincare professionals and experts. They protect, prevent, and limit free radical damage, and some assist with hydration and inflammation. Not only will your skin be better looking, but it will also be healthier in general.

Antioxidants are therefore important and effective in our skincare but what about antioxidants in our diet?

Our internal amount of antioxidant protection is even more important and has a huge impact on how rapidly we are ageing.

So how do we know how much free radical damage is going on in the inside and what antioxidant protection do we have internally?

At Lumia we now offer our clients the opportunity to find out how much antioxidant protection they have on the INSIDE
