Beauty Prediction for
The Year 2040:
When our 20- and 30-something daughters, nieces,
co-workers, and friends reach their 50s and 60s,
they won’t be bothered by sagging jowls, crow’s feet, laugh lines and dark under-eye circles.
That’s because scientists working in the beauty industry today have discovered that specially-formulated dietary supplements can take care of our epidermis, from the inside out, and reduce, even reverse, the harsh effects of aging on our skin’s support system, namely wrinkles and decreased elasticity.
These new supplements also will benefit those
of us who are already FabOverFifty, even after we start
seeing pesky laugh lines that are anything but funny.
Up until now, we’ve relied on lotions, creams and serums to try and minimize wrinkles, dry, loose, dull and uneven skin once the dewy freshness of youth fades. Of course, we also have the option to go the plastic surgery route. But the topical treatments can only do so much and plastic surgery can run into big bucks, and simply isn’t every woman’s cup of tea.
It’s completely logical, then, that if we eat calcium-rich foods to help keep our bones strong; Omega 3-rich foods to keep our hearts healthy, and protein-rich foods to keep our muscles mighty, that we can take something to prevent our skin from drooping and discoloring.
Now there is! Cellopel is a new supplement, in the form of a capsule, that has been created to “change the way” we age, while “transforming” the look of our skin so it becomes as smooth and “youthful” as it once was. Pretty big promises, but when you look at the nutrients Cellopel delivers, and understand the role they play in the health of our skin, the claims don’t seem quite so lofty.
Vitamin C: An A+ When It
Comes To Skin Health
Vitamin C has powerful antioxidant properties, which help us maintain healthy, supple skin (skin that doesn’t sag). It’s also used to create collagen in the body, a protein that’s responsible for cell renewal and strengthening the skin, but is no longer produced after our 40th birthday.
When we’re young, our skin is full of vitamin C, but aging skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. Exposure to UV light, pollutants and cigarette smoke trigger the decline of vitamin C, as well, further contributing to signs of aging.
We can replenish
the level of vitamin C
in our skin, to help fight,
and even reverse, the effects of time.
Vitamin C can have almost the same results as chemical peels and lasers, when it comes to treating age spots, which are essentially sun damage, and vitamin C has been shown to reduce the number of sunburned cells, as well as reverse age-related damage to skin. While it’s not a replacement for sunscreen, vitamin C protects against and may repair UV damage like discoloration and fine lines.
“Cellopel is loaded with the highest quality antioxidants available to help reverse the damage caused by free radicals, leaving you with a fresh and radiant glow. We provide you with a mixture of amino acids and vitamin C to kick start your body’s natural production of collagen,” its manufacturer asserts.
Phytoceramides: Combating The “Enemies” of Youthful Skin
Ceramides are the essential elements that make up most of the outer layer of the skin, to provide protection against moisture loss and help keep the skin hydrated and plump. As we age, the level of ceramides drops, leaving the skin vulnerable to drying, roughness, itchiness, and wrinkling. Ceramides also decrease when our skin suffers from sun damage, a dry environment or irritating skin care products. By the age of 60, the loss of ceramides can cause the upper layer of the skin to be 30 percent thinner.
“Replenishing the skin’s ceramide content is a powerful way to protect skin, helping it act and look younger,” claims a spokesperson for the Cellopel brand.
Phytoceramides are the plant-derived equivalent of ceramides, and taking them orally can restore the natural outer layer of the skin. These powerful molecules work from the inside out, getting absorbed into the bloodstream and then carried to the inner layer of the skin. From there, they seep to the outermost layer, where they hydrate the skin to keep it healthy and youthful; reduce age spots; reduce under-eye bags; firm up the facial skin, and protect against UV rays and pollutants.
Used in Japan for centuries, the FDA has approved the oral use of phytoceramides in the United States.
“Using this new scientific breakthrough, Cellopel is able to replenish your skin’s protective barrier, leaving you with more youthful and supple skin,” reports its manufacturer.
What Plastic Surgeons Don’t Want You to Know
When the makers of Cellopel discovered the trio of
key building blocks in the skin of children and
young adults, they combined the three components into an exclusive complex, called L-PC10, which they added to their promising new supplement.
“Building off of our already innovative formula, we looked for a way to further boost the effectiveness of Cellopel in order to help further eliminate the need for cosmetic surgery. L-PC10 is revolutionary complex,” the manufacturer says.
You reportedly will start seeing the results of Cellopel within two to three weeks. The manufacturer is so confident in the supplement’s effectiveness that it’s offering a 60-day guarantee and will issue a complete refund to anyone who is dissatisfied with the product.
