As more people become aware of the importance of moisturizing and nourishing their skin, face masks have gained a following and are now a must-have.

On this wave, Herbalife Nutrition introduces its own range of seductive Herbalife Nutrition Vitamin Masks * – a face mask designed for a deep and rejuvenating pick-me-up on the face.

“As a name that has always been synonymous with nutrition, we pursue a holistic and health-oriented approach to beauty.

“People today are often exhausted at the end of the day and don’t have enough time to take care of their skin. As a result, the skin can become dehydrated, which in turn affects its appearance, ”said Steven Chin, Director of Herbalife Nutrition Malaysia.

When choosing a mask, opt for ingredients that help moisturize the skin and restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier to protect it from external factors such as dry air.

Triple Hyaluronic Acid – a proprietary ingredient in Herbalife Nutrition’s Vitamin Moisturizing Mask – is a great option because it is a blend of three types of hyaluronic acids with different molecular weights that penetrate the deeper layers of the skin to improve its barrier function and moisture content [1]This leads to moisture, smoothness and firmness of the skin [2].

Healthy, glowing skin comes from our digestive system.

The more hydrated, smoother, supple, and youthful the skin would look.

A common mistake is to underestimate the effects dehydration has on the skin, which can lead to uneven complexion and the appearance of fine lines [3].

One of nature’s most powerful moisturizers is aloe vera, which contains 99.5% water and has been used for centuries to prevent or treat dehydration [4].

An added benefit is the abundance of natural antioxidants and vitamins associated with protecting the skin [5].

However, watch out for aloe vera products that do not contain aloin. Many aloe vera products on the market contain the bitter tasting aloin, a natural laxative that can cause stomach upset [6].

Interestingly, another aspect of healthy, glowing skin comes from our digestive health.

Your digestive tract is like the soil, and your hair and skin are like the plants; If the soil is not healthy, the plants will not bloom properly.

Essential nutrients are absorbed in the digestive tract to produce healthy skin cells [7] and to synthesize proteins like collagen that maintain smooth skin, shiny hair, and healthy nails.

Found mainly in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons, collagen works from the inside out to give our skin firmness and elasticity [8].

This substance, which holds the body together, begins to deplete by mid-20s, causing the skin to become increasingly dry, saggy and prone to wrinkles.

Other lifestyles like a high-sugar diet, smoking, and excessive sun exposure can speed up this process [9].
