Put yourself out there.
For younger adults getting exercise is crucial to staying healthy. However, this activity often takes place outdoors, which put an increased stress on our skin. Thankfully carotenoids like lycopene, lutein, and beta-carotene help ease the toll of environmental stresses by aiding in skin resilience. By focusing on our skin health and nutrition at an early age, we can begin a beautiful journey towards lifelong skin health.*

This is a smooth move.
Skin is the body’s largest organ. As we grow older, it requires more upkeep to maintain its softness, radiance, and resilience. However, there is a positive association between antioxidant levels in skin and it perceived attractiveness.8 Carotenoids like lycopene, lutein, and beta-carotene work hard from the inside out to keep skin looking and feeling healthy.*

As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to the effects of environmental stress. Carotenoids can be used in conjunction with a comprehensive skin health regime to help balance our skin’s response from these effects. By building up a natural reservoir of free radical-fighting phytonutrients in our skin, we can ensure we’re equipped to take in the outside world throughout our later years.
