NEW YORK, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer and the beginning of extra time spent basking in the sun. While a little dose of Vitamin D is a good thing, too much direct sun exposure - even with topical sunscreen protection - will not only lead to dry, damaged, wrinkled skin on the outside, but damage to internal skin cells. Enter Ascenta Skin, a new way to fight off cell destruction and keep skin dewy, healthy and vibrant.
Ascenta Skin is a pomegranate flavored, ingestible oil formulated with a unique blend of six active ingredients - EPA, DHA, GLA, zeaxanthin, lutein and vitamin D - that reduces inflammation and redness by fighting free radicals that wreak havoc in the cellular environment of the skin. Just one teaspoon a day of Ascenta Skin will provide added UV protection from the inside.
Ascenta Skin Founder & Formulator Marc St. Onge adds, "Ascenta Skin boosts UV protection throughout the whole body, compared to topical sunscreens which only protect the skin where it is applied and the results are tremendous."
Skin is under constant stress from UV exposure and during summer months the effect is amplified. UV rays generate free radicals, which break down collagen, accelerate skin aging, damage DNA, cause sun spots, and promote the release of pro-inflammatory mediators, which trigger the production of inflammatory skin diseases. Free radicals and inflammation can also play a role in allergic skin reactions resulting in even more redness and irritation.
Ascenta Skin works to enhance the body's natural defenses against UV radiation with 6 powerful active ingredients: EPA and DHA sourced from fish oil, GLA from borage seeds, zeaxanthin sourced from paprika, lutein sourced form marigold, along with 1000iu of vitamin D3. This synergistic blend of active ingredients increase the skin's resilience to UV induced redness, reduces burning, and contains powerful antioxidants to fight free radical damage.
When coupled with broad-spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen and UPF clothing, using Ascenta Skin will help you achieve optimal skin health and enable you to enjoy the summer by minimizing the skin damaging and aging effects of the sun.
Ascenta Skin is available for $80 at Space NK stores and SpaceNK.com. For more information, please visit AscentaSkin.com.
