We refer to the main ingredients in GLOW Pina Colada as “the golden trio” – the combination of collagen, pineapple and coconut are skin essentials. Here’s the lowdown…
SKIN BENEFITS OF PINEAPPLE – THE BREAKDOWN:
You can’t have a Pina Colada without pineapple and although these tropical goodies taste delicious – they actually work wonders for the skin as well.
High in phytonutrients and other skin-loving vitamins and minerals, pineapple contains:
- Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5 & B6
- Vitamin C – helps produce collagen!
- Manganese, Potassium, Copper
- Beta-carotene – converts to Vitamin A in the body
- Folic acid – another B vitamin essential for skin cell turnover
- Fibre – for gut health which is vital for skin
- Bromelain – enzyme that has potent anti-inflammatory effects & helps the body breakdown hard to digest proteins – meaning it’s great for digestion
Bromelain and Vitamin C – a skin match made in heaven
The anti-inflammatory effects of bromelain help fight redness, swelling and of course, inflammation. Further, the enzyme bromelain boosts the healing power of vitamin C, allowing it to work its magic more effectively.
Vitamin C, is known as a collagen “precursor” (which means that it helps synthesise collagen in the body), helps nourish damaged cells to boost and repair tissue. The nutrients in pineapples can also promote smooth, firm and flexible skin giving full body skin GLOW.
SKIN BENEFITS OF COCONUT – THE BREAKDOWN:
Fights Dry Skin
To combat dry and flaky skin, coconut and coconut oil can be a saviour. The fatty acids and vitamin E found in coconut and coconut oil can help cleanse, detoxify and nourish your skin leaving it feeling soft and supple.
Similar to the benefits found in pineapple, coconut also boosts collagen production supporting skin regeneration. It may help increase skin firmness, reduce fine lines and minimise wrinkles. Its antioxidant content also slows down the ageing process by tackling harmful free radicals too.
SKIN BENEFITS OF HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN – THE BREAKDOWN:
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, making up around 75% of skin – our body’s largest organ. It is synthesised in our bodies by tiny cells called “fibroblasts” and deposits itself most abundantly in the dermis, the deepest layer of the skin.
As we age, our body’s production of collagen slows, meaning that our skin, eyes, ligaments, tendons, teeth, cartilage, hair and nails have far less of it. This is when we see the signs of ageing, as these structures no longer have the strength and support that they need and thus begin to break down.
Replenishing collagen levels in your body with a natural supplement can help slow down the ageing process, enhance hydration and firmness and plump the skin, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
