Why your skin needs Astaxanthin

How about if I told you that one of the most valuable opponents of free radicals known to humankind is also the stuff that gives flamingos and salmon their lovely pink hue? You might think this faddish beauty trend has zero legitimate value, but as it turns out, Astaxanthin holds up strong from both a health and beauty perspective.

Now, if you're drawing a blank (or not even sure how to pronounce it), don't worry - I'm about to clue you in on all this incredible antioxidant has to offer.  

Well, for starters, Astaxanthin is 550 times more potent than Vitamin E and 6,000 times more effective than Vitamin C at eliminating free radicals - But wait, it gets even better! 

Let's start at the beginning and explore what exactly makes this pink powerhouse so wildly effective in skincare.

What is Astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin is a variety of carotenoid, which is a naturally occurring pigment visible primarily in marine life such as lobster, krill, salmon, and algae. Although it’s in a lot of foods we consume regularly, it’s tricky to absorb through diet alone.   

Frequently remarked as 'the king of carotenoids,' Astaxanthin's antioxidant attributes are thought to help defend against specific kinds of chronic disease, reverse and prevent skin aging, and soothe inflammation.

 What makes Astaxanthin particularly impressive is its ability to protect our skin cells from oxidation, or decomposition. It may seem far-fetched, but science has nailed down ways for us to harness this blushing antioxidant for all its skin-saving potential.

Read on to find out how Astaxanthin can be your own personal skin-savior.

Benefits of Astaxanthin For Skin

●       Gives Skin a Youthful Glow

Bid your dull complexion farewell - Astaxanthin will leave your skin with a healthy brilliance while protecting it from UV-induced skin damage. That's right - It's signature coral pigment presents a beautiful, luminous radiance to the skin that makes it appear as though you're actually glowing from within.

●       Eases Inflammation

Chronic inflammation and illness can't hold a flame next to the antioxidant properties of Astaxanthin. It can offset many free radicals at the same time, protecting and healing your skin and body by boosting our immunity. Although inflammation is an integral part of the body’s immune response, chronic inflammation can result in conditions like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

●       Keeps Wrinkles at Bay

Clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Astaxanthin when it comes to warding off fine lines and wrinkles. It achieves this by increasing the skins blood flow, boosting moisture retention, and amplifying elasticity - All of which leads to smoother skin and a drastic reduction in the signs of aging. Phew!
