Well that day is here. I am now exactly my mom’s age when she asked me that question.
Of course we have lots more choices in how to achieve a more youthful appearance today. Everything from injections to lasers and some pretty high-tech products.
But I would still like to take a pill. So the research began.
And here are some interesting facts about a phytoceramide supplement that may make facelifts obsolete:
- In a four-week clinical study, 95% of participants suffering from dry, itchy, flaky skin saw completely restored hydration using a phytoceramides supplement.
- A 12-week study showed reversal of age-related skin wrinkling.
- A 90-day follow up to the four-week study showed thicker, more hydrated, less red and itchy skin.
- The phytoceramides supplement uses lipid technology that passes through the digestive enzymes and penetrates up through the skin matrix, mimicking your body’s own ceramides.
- Researchers discovered that this extract the phytoceramide extract is based on improves the skin’s water loss (which happens with aging).
- After a six-week Japanese study, skin was brighter and smoother. Wrinkles became shallow and significant improvement was observed in the neck.
