Iata, in mare parte, motivele pentru care am decis sa iau zilnic suplimente alimentare(acum, dupa cum am spus si aici, in jurnalul de beauty tinut in primavara acestui an, Minerale pentru femei de la Doppel Herz):
„Skin is a responsive, active organ. In a sense, it’s a factory, because it continually maintains its own supporting structures and manufactures skin cells and the gel-like material that holds them together
Whatever goes into the body affects how the organs function. So if you want healthy skin, you have to supply it with the necessary building blocks for cell membranes and connective tissue. These include proteins or amino acids; water -bonding elements such as phospholipids: fatty acids: lecithin, vitamins B and C; and trace minerals.
The concept behind my program is that as skin cell factory ages, it becomes less efficient. I have found that by increasing the supply of raw materials-protective and reparative agents-the factory can resume normal, more youthful production.
Because the skin is such an efficient barrier, and its upper layer has no blood supply, it’s difficult to get nutrients and other vital materials from the skin’s surface down into the deeper layers of the epidermis, where the cells are nourished. It became clear for me that supplements-nourishing the skin from within, from the bloodstream-could make up for deficiencies in the skin.”
