Asthenia is defined by a lack or decay of strength that causes apathy, fatigue or lack of initiative. When it is temporary and its origin is related to the season of flowers, we call it spring asthenia. Have you ever thought that this condition can also have consequences on our skin?
This apathy, in addition to the fact that it can lead us to neglect skin care, directly affects the skin’s radiance, so that if we do not take it into account, our face can appear dull, sallow and even fatigued. Accumulated fatigue is reflected in the cellular work of the dermis and epidermis, which slows down and hinders renewal and replacement.
This is why at this time of year antioxidants come into play more than ever, our best allies in combating the symptoms of spring asthenia, bringing light, revitalising facial skin and giving energy to our skin cells so that they can work at their usual pace.
Let’s take a look at some examples:
- Vitamin C: this antioxidant, also known as ascorbic acid, is a derivative of glucose metabolism necessary for collagen synthesis. Replenishing it helps to improve facial radiance and the skin’s ability to renew its structural components.
- Vine extract: grape seed is rich in polyphenols such as resveratrol, an antioxidant that protects against free radicals typical of radiation and pollution, helping to repair the damage they cause and providing anti-ageing properties. It is a great help in evening out skin tone.
- Vitamin E: also known as tocopherol, this fat-soluble antioxidant is a very good choice in the prevention of ageing, because it protects against cellular stress caused by free radicals, exposure to pollutants, light, ageing and, of course, spring asthenia.
Now that you know, you just need to find out which antioxidant is the best choice for your skin this spring. Find out by taking our diagnostic test and don’t let your skin lose its radiance and vitality.
