Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
On November 16, the scientific skincare brand Likewise Skincare, releases a statement regarding nutrition in skincare routines. The holiday season is here and while we enjoy the merriment, Lisa Shariat, a representative of Likewise Skincare, reminds us that healthy nutrition is a key component to effective skincare routines.
According to Jennifer Hernandez, a blogger for The Independent Florida Alligator, “[I]t is true that our skin reflects our diet.” She highlights five food fundamentals that help your skin stay strong, retain skin elasticity, prevent dryness, and reduce the effects of aging. They include: protein from fish and lean meats, carbohydrates from whole grains, Omega-3 found in fish and walnuts, eight to nine cups of water, and Vitamins A and C, reports the article. According to the article, Vitamin A can be found in dark green vegetables, like spinach, and sweet potatoes. In addition, Vitamin C is found in oranges and grapefruits.
Lisa Shariat, a representative of Likewise Skincare, weighs in by stating, “Vitamin D is also important for your health and skin. But getting it from a healthy diet and supplements is better than sun exposure. This is because UV rays can cause premature aging of the skin and skin cancer. Dietary sources of Vitamin D do not prematurely age the skin or increase the risk of developing skin cancer. Healthy nutrition is an essential part of your skincare routine. This is why Likewise Skincare products feature key ingredients like zinc and antioxidants to keep skin healthy, hydrated, and reduce the effects of aging and sun damage. We invite you to be beautiful and be wise this holiday season.”
Likewise Skincare was founded by board-certified dermatologist and President of Likewise, Inc., Dr. Julie Pena. Likewise daily moisturizers are all-in-one but not one-fits-all. Each moisturizer is formulated with skin-balancing toners to work with your specific skin type. The moisturizers use a combination of anti-aging antioxidants, ultra-protective zinc oxide, and water-resistant ingredients to keep you protected.
