Why you need it?
Topical skincare helps, but it is sometimes simply not enough. At SKOON. we know there is a direct link between skin, certain necessary nutrients, and your gut health. This is called your good gut – good skin axis. Raspberry Mango Bounce Back is an extremely convenient and very effective great-skin-from-within daily smoothie that you can use in tandem with your favourite SKOON. topicals. Packed with everything your skin needs to bounce back!
Below are some of the hero ingredients you’ll find in each of your Raspberry Mango Bounce Back sachets.
Collagen has a dual action in your skin. It provides the building blocks for new collagen and elastin. More exciting, it then up-cycles the enzymes that stimulate the synthesis of new collagen and elastin as well as hyaluronic acid. Literally, the complete 360° when it comes to modern skincare.
Glum fact: Your body starts losing collagen around the ages of 18–29. After 40 you lose around 1% per year.
Glow fact: Oral ingestion of marine collagen can improve your skin’s elasticity, roughness, and collagen density. From top to toe.
MSM is a co-factor in the formation of healthy collagen. MSM blocks undesirable chemical and physical cross-linking of collagen and preserves pliancy, which is crucial for supporting healthy collagen and resilient skin.
MSM has been shown to significantly increase glutathione levels (quick fact: glutathione is your body's own powerhouse antioxidant), an additional benefit in maintaining collagen’s defensive mechanisms against oxidative stress.
Vitamin C is an important building block to make new collagen. Inadequate levels of vitamin C can impact the quality of new collagen, resulting in a delicate and easily destroyed collagen matrix.
Not good. Why? Anti-sagging from collagen depends on healthy, organised collagen bundles.
TIP: Picture a swimming net ☺︎ . If there are a lot of missing links it sags.
Astaxanthin (pronounced as-ta-ZAN-thin) – the most powerful antioxidant known to science.
The body naturally produces free radicals as a result of metabolic processes. Antioxidants counteract these free radicals. However, there is often an imbalance with too many free radicals produced and not enough antioxidants to counteract their effects, and this is called oxidative stress. Oxidative stress ages skin & antioxidants like astaxanthin is part of your first-line defense to slow down this process.
Fun fact: Astaxanthin is the compound that gives flamingos their luminous, pink hue.
Potent detoxifying compound – di-indolylmethane (DIM). DIM activates a cellular switch that orchestrates antioxidant, detoxification, and cellular defences.
Glum fact: As you age your body is less effective at detoxifying.
Glow fact: DIM not only supports your body in detoxification, but is also a means by which to combat the effects that ageing has on your skin.
The idea that the gut and skin are connected is not new; traditional forms of medicine that have been around for thousands of years have a long history of a gut-centric approach to healthy skin. Your intestinal microbiome is a complex and dynamic bacterial community that plays an important role in your skin. As mentioned before this is called the good gut - good skin axis. Topping up with 2+ Billion probiotics is a super-smart step towards healthy, happy skin.
