How to look and feel your best this party season
You’ve picked out your Christmas dress, and already been thinking about the festive dinner shop – but have you considered how the right combination of supplements can help you look and feel your best this party season?
From the key nutrients to support your skin’s natural glow during all those late nights, to the vitamins and minerals that will help keep you in balance as a month of indulgence kicks in, here’s what you need in your wellness kit to keep you looking and feeling your best all December long.
Keep your skin looking its best
Many people say they notice a link between a healthy diet and lifestyle and the appearance of their skin. It’s thought that drinking water might help maintain our skin’s elasticity (though this hasn’t been scientifically proven), but drinking alcohol has been shown to dehydrate the skin. So, try to be conscious of your intake as the invites for a glass of prosecco come in.
When it comes to hydration, a popular ingredient you’ll often see on face creams is hyaluronic acid; it is thought to aid moisture retention, helping the skin to feel more supple. Add it to your skincare routine from within with a hyaluronic acid supplement.
Studies also suggest that beta-carotene, one of the key nutrients in orange-coloured fruits and vegetables, might benefit the overall health and appearance of your skin – so don’t hold out on the carrots until your Christmas Day roast.
Collagen is another skincare superhero; as we age, our bodies produce less of this important protein that provides our skin’s scaffolding. That means skin can become drier and less elastic. Studies have suggested that taking collagen orally might improve skin elasticity and hydration.
To keep you covered all month long – and beyond – why not add Women’s Multivitamins & Minerals to your daily routine? Ingredients such as zinc (which has anti-inflammatory properties and is thought to help fight viruses and bacteria), vitamin A (known for its skin healing and anti-ageing abilities) and vitamin e (an antioxidant that may prevent damage from UV rays) will help your skin to look its best.
