Glutathione, the King of Skin Whitening products
Fair skin is definitely a sight for sore eyes, and women, especially the whitish Asians and the Blacks, since the antediluvian time, have resorted to many natural remedies to lighten their skin tones. Apart from genes, the key skin colour determiner, afternoon harsh-sunlight and certain sicknesses can also play a spoilsport sometimes!
At a time like this, kitchen ingredients like milk, curd, gram flour, natural fruits, lemon, sandal, honey, turmeric, fuller’s earth etc. are very effective when applied on the skin in their unprocessed form, either singly or in combination with one or more from the above, and does the required trick by bleaching the skin.
But the time-crunched contemporary working women, averse to going through the cumbrous natural- remedial route, more so, since natural products give an unpleasant odour and litter the bathroom as well, started to look beyond the home remedies, searching for more suitable merchandises at the chemists’ shops.
At this hour of crisis, the medical revolution proved a boon, opening the door to a plethora of new-age cosmetics and medicines which are not just effective but also time-saving, and spares us the unpleasant odour and the litter at the same time!
Waking up to their goodness, even the modern men, who didn’t want to be left behind jumped into the bandwagon and joined the cult, juggling for an appropriate option amongst various skin-lightening remedies as part of their grooming regimen. And with an increase in demand, skin whitening products became a success story.
Unfortunately, the market is full of much-hyped products and to choose a suitable one amidst the lot is a pain. Moreover, chemicals don’t come without their side-effects. Hence, what we require is a combination of modern medicines and traditional ingredients, coming with a stamp of safety and which can save our skins, both literally and figuratively!
Glutathione, a tripeptide, made by the liver using three amino acids: Glutamine acid, cysteine and glycine, excels as an immunity-boosting and anti-oxidation agent while also effectively whitening the skin in the bargain by blocking the enzyme, tyrosinase that produces melanin, a key darkening agent.
But several other factors like certain sicknesses, infections, lack of nutrients and the snowballing age can also hamper the natural production of glutathione. So what should one do to maintain an adequate level of glutathione for glowing and white skin?
Vogue Wellness has formulated Best skin lightening tablets in form of Allure plus and have natural Glutathione. Looking at the natural recourse as the best way forward, let’s begin with changing our food habits and lifestyle.
Sulphur: Manufactures amino acid, an important blood thinner, cholesterol-lowering agent, great collagen builders and skin whitening and glowing mediator, and allows abundant growth of glutathione and can be found in rich foods like dairy products, meat, fish, poultry, and vegetables like beans, sprouts, Brussel sprouts, spinach, okra, lettuce, chives, leeks, garlic onion, mushrooms, kale, cabbage, broccoli etc. Some fruits like melons, banana, avocado and beverages like coffee, black and green tea are also good sources of sulphur.
Vitamin C: Citrus fruits like the lemons, oranges, pineapple, amla, tamarind, berries, tomatoes etc are great sources of vitamin C. Vitamin C, a great immunity booster, helps to fight sicknesses and infections effectively while clearing our skin of its gloom and giving it a healthy shine. And this key vitamin must be combined with vitamin E and glutathione supplement for quick absorption of the latter.
Vitamin E: Vitamin E is a natural collagen builder and an anti-oxidant. By fighting free radicals, it adds health to the skin, maintains its natural firmness, lightens the skin tone and gives it a natural glow.
Selenium: Selenium is found in fish, chicken, cottage cheese, brown rice and Brazil nuts etc and is important for reproduction, thyroid gland function, DNA production and for protecting the body from free radicals and infections.
Herbs: Some herbs and spices like the turmeric, parsley and coriander are rich in vitamin C and as such help in boosting immunity and fighting infections.
Whey protein: Is a natural anti-oxidant and collagen builder. It contains amino acid which repairs the wear and tear of the skin, smoothens wrinkles and erases scars while giving the skin a natural glow and lighter skin tone.
Grape seed extract: May improve collagen levels and bone strength. As a rich source of flavonoids, GSE may thus help increase improve collagen levels. Allure Plus is enriched with Glutathione.
Pine bark extracts: Rich in several bio-flavonoids, this magic herb helps to keep the skin hydrated while keeping it supple and glowing and reduces pigmentation, scars and fine lines, is anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant.
Liquorice: Its plant compound is potentially anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial and helps in giving shine and whiteness to the skin by cleaning the blood of free radicals and oxidants.
Enough sleep: Sleep activates glutathione production and helps keep the brain, heart and kidney in good shape and allows better blood circulation while repairing and building new cells in the body.
Work-outs: Workouts stimulate glutathione production which helps skin rid itself of free radicals through sweat pores. Pranayam has been found to be the new magic yoga exercise that aids the production of glutathione.
Apart from various formulations like soaps, masks, creams and injections, oral supplements are popular and safe sources of glutathione and they absorb faster than the creams and masks.
