Radiance Ageless Beauty
There is much more to your skin than meets the eye. The dermis, the second layer, is the skin's supporting tissue. The dermis contains your skin’s structural components - collagen, elastin fibres, blood vessels, nerve endings, hair follicles and the moisture-retaining elements that keep the skin supple and wrinkle free. It is here that the first signs of ageing begin. So it is here, in the dermis of the skin, that true age defying beauty must also begin.
Healthy, radiant skin for life requires proper nutrition and antioxidant protection
Nourishing your body from the inside out begins with eating healthily, drinking enough water, exercising and making sure your body is receiving adequate amounts of nutrients so it can build, repair and protect itself. In today's fast-paced world, keeping up with your body's nutritional needs may be increasingly difficult.
Radiance Ageless Beauty, the ultimate in age defying beauty from within, provides ingredients very carefully selected for their beneficial effects on the skin, including hydration, building, strengthening and rejuvenating, antioxidant protection and clear skin cleansing.
At the heart of this unique formulation is the pure, unadulterated goodness of New Zealand marine and agricultural offerings, manufactured using state of the art techniques.
Smooth Skin Needs Strong Structural Foundations
From the clean South Pacific waters surrounding New Zealand comes hydrolysed marine collagen complex. A bioavailable protein complex rich in the essential amino acids required for collagen production. Whilst certain food nutrients can stimulate or are essential for collagen production, collagen itself is not readily available in the average diet. Clinical research has shown that supplementation with hydrolysed marine collagen, as provided by Radiance® Ageless Beauty, supports dermal integrity, helping you maintain hydrated and radiantly youthful looking skin.

The skin is a miraculous organ. The largest in the body, it has a range of actions and one of the most important is to provide a protective barrier between the body and the outside world.
This protective barrier helps shield the inner environ against mechanical, thermal and physical injury and protects it from hazardous substances such as microbes, chemicals and other environmental toxins. The layer of the skin responsible for this is called the stratum corneum. This layer is essentially made up of stacks of flattened cells encased in a thick coating of lipids. It could be likened to a brick wall, with the lipids as the mortar. This wall provides a barrier to the outflow of moisture while promoting a protective shield against the entry of bacteria, allergens, other chemicals and UV light from the environment.
The lipid mortar of the skin is reliant on an adequate dietary supply of omega 6 fatty acids or linoleic acid. While these dietary oils are quite prevalent in the diet, they must be converted via an enzyme named delta-6-desaturase to gamma linolenic acid (GLA), the fatty acid that is most integral to the skin surface lipid structure.
Unfortunately the action of delta-6-desaturase is often impaired due to genetics, aging, illness and poor dietary choices which mean low levels of GLA in the skin and a poorly functioning skin lipid barrier. If you can imagine a brick wall cracking with aged mortar chipping away, this is an unhealthy lipid barrier.
This can essentially mean two things. The first is that the skin is unable to lock in and maintain water within the skin. This means that moisture evaporates readily, resulting in skin that appears dull and dehydrated. Long-term, skin that is not well hydrated becomes visibly rough, dry and flaky and becomes prone to the accelerated development of fine lines and wrinkles.
The second problem associated with a poorly performing lipid barrier is that the skin has trouble keeping out microbes, bacteria, allergens and even seemingly innocuous, skincare and cosmetic ingredients. This can mean skin becomes overly sensitive and reactive, and can even mean red, irritated and itchy skin conditions.
So what can you do to support a healthy skin barrier and get the benefits of moisture rich, protected, resilient skin? The first step to radiant, beautiful, healthy skin is supplementing with the right oils and that’s where Radiance® Oil of Beauty comes in.
Radiance® Oil of Beauty provides an innovative, synergistic blend of New Zealand grown evening primrose oil (EPO) and blackcurrant seed oil (BSO) strengthened with New Zealand grown astaxanthin.
So what can these specific oils do for your skin?
Evening primrose oil and blackcurrant seed oil are both potent sources of GLA, essentially supplying the skin with readymade lipid mortar, bypassing the need for conversion, thereby supporting a strong, healthy lipid barrier. Probably for this reason, both oils are shown to promote optimal skin hydration and moisture, alongside promoting smoothness, elasticity and firmness.
The benefits of evening primrose oil and blackcurrant oil don’t stop at beautifying and moisturising the skin. The very action of restoring the skins lipid barrier also supports the skins natural protection from the environment and its barrage of microbes, toxins and other chemicals. This plus the inherent skin soothing action of these fabulous oils mean it is no wonder that they are used to support people who suffer from sensitivity, redness, itching and blemished skin.
Both evening primrose and blackcurrant seed oils also support healthy circulation, blood vessel integrity and hormone balance. As a result, this fabulous combination promotes a healthy menstrual cycle, menopausal transition, breast comfort and mood. Blackcurrant oil is also thought to promote healthy hair growth and condition.
While these super oils are great on their own, in order to bolster the beauty defying abilities of Radiance® Oil of Beauty, we added the super antioxidant, astaxanthin. This algal, antioxidant is from the family of powerful antioxidants called carotenoids. Derived from New Zealand grown algae, Haematococcus pluvialis, astaxanthin accumulates in the skin where it acts as a filter, supporting the skins natural protective mechanisms against the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation. Perfect for those who spend a lot of time in the sun.
Numerous studies have shown that astaxanthin supports skin elasticity, hydration and texture while also promoting a clear, smooth, evenly toned complexion. As it is such a potent antioxidant it is shown to support irritated skin. Astaxanthin is not just for beauty, it is also used extensively to support brain, eye, joint and heart health.
Just two soft gels of Radiance® Oil of Beauty daily is all you need to support moisture rich, healthy, glowing, luminescent skin that you can be proud of.
Top tips for beautiful, radiant moisture rich skin
Don’t be afraid of fats: The body requires a steady dietary supply of essential fatty acids to maintain healthy, beautiful, hydrated skin, so include lots of oily fish, nuts, seeds, avocados, coconut and olive oil in your diet.
Eat a nutritious diet: Alongside essential fatty acids, the skin is also dependant on a whole raft of other nutrients to maintain the structure and function of the skin so make sure you try and eat lots of fresh food.
Drink at least two litres of water a day: When we are dehydrated our bodies conserve water for more essential body processes, resulting in dry, dull skin, so keep those fluids up!
Don’t sweat the small stuff: Stress can exacerbate skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and acne by impacting on the barrier function of the skin and increasing inflammation, so take some time out to relax and unwind.
Try not to use harsh cleansers and exfoliants: They often wash off the lipids in the skin leaving the skin unable to hold moisture and susceptible to environmental chemicals and microbes
Take two Radiance® Oil of Beauty softgels daily: For beautiful, moisture rich, glowing, and healthy skin.
