Glutathione: The Antioxidant for Your Skin

One ingredient that has been gaining popularity in recent years is glutathione. But what exactly is glutathione and why do you need it?

Glutathione is a tripeptide consisting of three amino acids: cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. It is naturally produced in the body and acts as an antioxidant, which means it helps to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells, leading to inflammation, ageing, and even diseases such as cancer.

In addition to its antioxidant properties, glutathione also plays a crucial role in detoxification. It helps to eliminate harmful toxins and chemicals from the body, which can accumulate over time and cause cellular damage. Glutathione also helps to boost the immune system, reducing the risk of infections and diseases.

But you may ask, what does all this have to do with your skin?

Well, as the largest organ of the body, your skin is constantly exposed to environmental stress points such as pollution, UV radiation, and toxins. These stressors cause damage to your skin cells, leading to premature ageing, dullness, and uneven skin tone.

Glutathione can help to counteract this damage by neutralising free radicals and promoting detoxification. In fact, studies have shown that glutathione can help to improve the appearance of the skin by reducing hyperpigmentation, increasing skin elasticity, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This is where Beautywise Skin Brilliance-Glutathione comes in.

This revolutionary antioxidant blend contains 500mg of glutathione and NAC, a precursor to glutathione, to boost levels of this powerful antioxidant in your body. By regulating melanin production, it helps to brighten and even out skin tone, giving you a more radiant complexion.

When taken orally, glutathione supplements can be absorbed by the body and distributed to the skin, where they can help reduce oxidative stress and regulate melanin production. Topical glutathione creams and serums are also available, but they may not be as effective as oral supplements

In conclusion, glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that can help to protect and improve the health of your skin. Beautywise®  Skin Brilliance-Glutathione is a great way to incorporate this ingredient into your skincare routine, helping you achieve a brighter, more even-toned complexion.

Also, don’t forget to  practise other healthy habits, such as wearing your SPF and eating a well balanced diet, to keep your skin looking its best.
