The skin is your first layer of defense against the outside world. Skin can also give important clues to your overall health. Learn to take good care of your skin, so your skin can keep taking good care of you.
This is where Immun-Activ comes in. Immun-Activ is a combination of Vitamin C, Zinc and selenium. This combination has shown how it can further improve your skin health. Highlighted below are ways Immun-Activ can further improve skin health.
IT HELPS PREVENT SUN DAMAGE.
When skin is exposed to UV light, damaging molecules called free radicals attack cells and collagen, your skin’s support structure. This can trigger inflammation and lead to wrinkles, sun spots and even skin cancer. Zinc oxide (a zinc-containing compound) acts as a physical block, stopping UV light from penetrating your skin altogether. Although the zinc acts as a shield, the particles are micronized, so lotions containing it rub in like any other product and look invisible.
IT MAY WARD OFF ACNE FLARE-UPS.
Pimples develop when a buildup of oil, bacteria and skin cells block pores, causing the skin around the pore to turn red, swollen and tender. Zinc, which is a key part of Immun-Activ which boosts immune function, may help control that inflammatory response. What’s more, because zinc regulates cell production and turnover, and can help reduce the amount of natural oil your skin produces, it may prevent your pores from clogging in the first instance
IT HELPS HEAL AND REJUVENATE SKIN.
When we injure ourselves, zinc, an important part of the Immun-Activ combination goes to work. First, the amount of the mineral in the skin surrounding the cut increases as enzymes and proteins ramp up to protect against infection, control inflammation and produce new cells and transport them to close up the broken skin. The vitamin C may also play a role in the formation of keratinocytes—cells needed to close up a wound on the skin’s surface.
IT PROTECTS CELLS FROM DAMAGE.
Selenium, another key player in the Immun-Activ combination neutralizes free radicals and other skin-damaging compounds before they can lead to wrinkles. It’s similar to vitamin E and actually works with the vitamin in the body to safeguard cell membranes, the protective coating around cells. That makes selenium a key player when it comes to slowing the signs of aging
IT HELPS HEAL RASHES AND OTHER SORES.
A common ingredient in hemorrhoid treatments and diaper rash creams, zinc oxide the main compound of zinc present in Immun-Activ helps heal skin in many of the same ways dietary zinc does: It reduces inflammation, regulates immunity and may stimulate the production of new cells. It’s also an anti-microbial, which can soothe and treat skin quickly.
IT HELPS KEEP SKIN STRONG AND FIRM
Along with minimizing the appearance of fine lines, vitamin C also helps the surface of your skin appear smoother and firmer by activating cells called fibroblasts that make new collagen.
