Here at Advanced Aesthetics of Northern Colorado, we are huge supporters of overall wellness! Rather that quick fixes or just treating the symptoms, we believe in holistic health. Diet and supplements can be an important part of overall health, whether consumed in the form of whole foods or taken as vitamin and mineral supplements. Vitamins can also be so intimidating! There are so many options to choose from and it is hard to know which ones to take!
If you are in your 20s, focus on beauty maintenance. Healthy hair and nails is a good category of supplements to focus on during this decade of life, including Biotin, which strengthens hair and nails. Gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) in the form of evening primrose oil or black currant oil, is an essential fatty acid that helps skin, hair, and nails grow in a healthy manner.
If you are in your 30s, the skin begins to age, due to factors such as sun exposure, pollution, stress, and other factors. Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, as is rough and dry skin, which can lead to redness, adult acne and patches. Be sure to eat enough quality fats in your diet, particularly omega three fatty acids, such as fish oil. Quality fats can also come from sources like avocado, eggs, and coconut products.
If you are in your 40s, collagen is important! It is the protein that gives skin elasticity and strength. Since it naturally declines as we age, a collagen supplement can keep skin youthful and vibrant. After taking collagen for 12 weeks, there will be a significant reduction in lines, wrinkles and skin dryness.
These supplements can be complimented by a healthy skin care regime. Stop by to learn more about the fabulous Lira line of products we carry!
