Glutathione for Brighter Skin
A youthful glow. Radiant skin. An even texture and tone. We are all seeking the appearance of younger brighter skin. Creams and topical ointments often leave us with temporary solutions. But what if the answer to brighter skin is found within our own bodies?
Introducing the master antioxidant: glutathione. It may be one of the most important antioxidants in our bodies. Glutathione protects our cells from toxins and helps support a healthy immune system. It plays a large role in antiaging because of its ability to neutralize free radicals. This powerful antioxidant may even have the ability to restore a youthful glow by slowing accelerated aging and addressing the hyperpigmentation of our skin.
Glutathione is naturally made in our own bodies. We do not need to consume glutathione in food or supplements. However, glutathione levels naturally decrease as we age and over time we may benefit from adding a supplement into our wellness routine. In the pursuit of a radiant glow, science suggests glutathione may provide the support we need.
Glutathione plays a role in the pigmentation of our skin. It affects the production of melanin, a pigment responsible for the color of our skin, hair, and eyes. Melanin can also cause the appearance of dark patches through hyperpigmentation. So how does glutathione fit in? Glutathione deactivates an enzyme, tyrosinase, that produces melanin in our bodies. By deactivating tyrosinase, melanin is converted to a lighter color, reducing blotches and scars for a lighter brighter appearance
Supplementation of oral glutathione can be a safe and effective way to increase glutathione in your body. In addition to brighter skin, studies have shown glutathione supplementation may reduce wrinkles and increase skin elasticity, too. All the more reason to consider glutathione in your wellness routine.
