Healthy, glowing skin is important for your overall health — and your self-confidence, too. When your skin is healthy, it acts as a barrier to keep harmful germs at bay, while also giving you the sexy, more youthful vibe that looks great at every age.
With Vitagen® products from Starkey Medical Esthetics in Salem, Virginia, you can provide your skin with the extra dose of vitamins, phytoestrogens, and moisture it needs to stay healthy and look its best. Developed by family nurse practitioner and master esthetician Michele Meinhart, FNP, Vitagen is a unique blend of nutrients designed to improve and maintain skin health at every age. Here’s how it works.
Vitamins for healthy skin
Your skin is an organ — the largest organ you have, in fact. Just as our other organs benefit from good nutrition, so does your skin. Vitamins help skin in multiple ways, including helping skin:
- Fight off infection
- Stay supple and firm
- Retain moisture
- Prevent acne breakouts
- Ward off sun and environmental damage
- Provide important antioxidant benefits
- Reduce the effects of aging
The key is to get the right vitamins for your skin in a formulation your skin can absorb.
Vitagen contains vitamins associated with improved skin health and wellness in a smooth formulation that’s absorbable and easy to apply. The rich base helps moisturize your skin, while providing a barrier that allows nutrients to penetrate to the deeper layers of skin where they’re needed.
The benefits of phytoestrogens
Vitamins are among the key components that help your skin thrive, so it looks and feels more youthful. Phytoestrogens also play an important role in maintaining skin health. Phytoestrogens are plant components that exhibit estrogen-like activity, including helping you maintain firmer, more supple, more youthful-looking skin as you get older.
Most people think of estrogen solely in terms of reproduction and menstruation. But estrogen also plays a role in skin health, helping your skin stay firmer, more elastic, and more resilient. As a woman ages, her natural production of estrogen declines, eventually leading to menopause and a cessation of her periods.
But that isn’t the only change that’s taking place. Lower levels of estrogen affect other areas of health and wellness, including taking a toll on your skin health. As estrogen levels decrease, your skin becomes thinner, drier, and more fragile. Its natural ability to “bounce back” diminishes, and lines and wrinkles become a lot more evident.
Vitagen provides a healthy dose of phytoestrogens to help skin stay healthier and more supple. And, as with vitamins, the Vitagen formula is designed to help your skin absorb more of those healthy phytoestrogens for maximum benefits.
Vitagen for healthy skin — at every age
Vitagen is great for aging skin. It’s also an important part of skin care for younger women, providing skin with the nutrients it needs to slow down the aging process, reduce acne breakouts, and promote the production of healthy collagen and elastin. With regular use, your skin can look brighter, clearer, and more balanced, no matter your age.
