Getting Your Glow Back

Let’s look at our general health, a healthy gut, and its effect on our skin

Beautiful skin starts with nourishment from within. Older cells are constantly shed and replaced by younger ones and a steady supply of key nutrients is essential to support this rapid growth. Eat the correct balance of foods and you'll feed your skin the vital nutrients it needs to help it stay soft, supple and healthy.

Ageing, wrinkles and age spots are the inevitable result of time, but skin ageing may be sped up by overexposure to the sun and tanning beds, strong facial products, that strip the skins defence barrier, chemicals, both external and internal, poor nutrition, smoking and alcohol. Treat your skin kindly and optimize your nutrition by eating antioxidant-rich fruit and vegetables, healthy fats from oily fish and nuts, and a varied and balanced diet. This should give optimal levels of the nutrients that are crucial for radiant skin, including beta carotene, vitamins C and E, zinc and selenium. Vitamin E protects skin from oxidative (cell) damage and supports healthy skin growth.

Amino Acids in Donkey Milk

Amino acids in Donkey milk

We start this topic with just one of the important amino acids found in Donkey’s Milk

So, let us talk about topically applied amino acids (found in donkey milk) and what they do to the skins surface. Topically applied amino acids have different jobs compared to ingested amino acids. Beauty sites are being a bit unclear when talking about different types of amino acids.  They take certain amino acids and say it is great for your skin but do not go into detail that it only works for you when you ingest the amino acid and does nothing when you apply it to the skin.

Arginine is one an amino acid which works for you when applied to the skin. It is found to be an antioxidant, aids in building collagen, helps to reduce the signs of aging and is a humectant.

Arginine found in the milk of animals especially in donkey milk.

For example

Donkey milk 4.6g / 100g

Goat milk 2.9g / 100g

Arginine fights free radicals; those are things like pollutants and UV rays which cause early skin aging. Free radicals damage collagen. Think of collagen like mortar that holds cinder blocks or bricks together. Even mortar when exposed to the elements eventually starts to break down by pollutants in the air, chemicals or even harsh pressure washing and your job is to repair the mortar, or your house or wall will crumble.

Over the years your collagen gets broken down by the same things. Chemicals that are in your wipes, makeup, face washes etc., pollutants in the air or UV rays and your job is to repair it or keep it from degrading. Just like mortar, it can be fixed but it needs to be attended to early on.

To keep your skin from breaking down collagen.

  1. Wear Sunscreen as much as possible!
  2. Wash your face every day with our cleansing bar!
  3. Apply a daytime moisturizer that contains antioxidants.

The sunscreen will help keep those UV rays from breaking down your collagen. Washing your face will help get those pollutants Bye the way makeup is also regarded as a pollutant so washing it off in the evening is so important and keep it from breaking down your collagen.

A serum or moisturizer with antioxidants will help “shoo” away from those demonic free radicals. Think about your grandma sweeping the floor and shooing you out the door as a kid with a broom, so she finishes cleaning the floor. That is what antioxidants do.

Arginine draws water to the skin's surface and locks it in. It may play a role in working with other proteins on the skin's surface, balancing the skin's Natural Moisturizing Factor.  More research needs to be done to see if Arginine plays a vital role in that aspect.

TIP: ******Stay away from synthetic retinol and retinoids (Vitamin A) products in your daytime face cream, moisturizer, lotion or whatever it is you use. The sun UV rays react with retinol breaking down your collagen faster. Making you age faster!  Use any retinol-containing products at night-time.
