Marine phospholipids for skin health? It’s true…this can be your new skin care solution

Healthy and hydrated skin is a must, especially as we approach the winter months ahead. And how we nourish our bodies on the inside has a major influence on the outside.

As our body’s largest organ, our skin is our barrier to the world, covering us from head to toe. The skin has a huge role to play in many functions of the body, such as helping to regulate our body temperature, fighting off infections and maintaining our body water levels. And aside from its internal functions, the skin is a reflection of our overall wellbeing on the outside. A healthy complexion not only appears and feels nice, it also indicates, in part, that you are healthy.



Skin anatomy and layers of the skin

What exactly does it mean to have healthy skin?

Dry skin, which occurs when the skin is not able to retain water moisture efficiently, is one of the biggest concerns among consumers. Desirable skin tends to be even in tone and texture, as well as hydrated, moisturized and firm. And proper skin cell function equals better water retention. Skin cells that are high in nutrients help combat external factors that influence the appearance of the skin. Nourishing your skin cells from within is vital to ensure proper barrier function and retention of water, helping the skin to look smoother and visibly healthier, as well as softer to the touch.

How do marine phospholipids from krill oil contribute to skin health?

As a natural phospholipid complex of marine omega-3 EPA & DHA, choline and astaxanthin, krill oil supplements can improve skin health. In fact, these tiny red capsules help support healthy levels of hydration and elasticity in the skin, and they come with anti-aging properties.

Phospholipids, the main structural component of all our bodies cell membranes, are integral to skin health. Phospholipids are one of nature’s most powerful humectants, meaning they can help lock in moisture, supporting the body’s natural hydration process and promoting skin barrier function.

Omega-3s support proper lipid function in skin cells, helping to increase the skin’s ability to retain moisture as well as increase hydration and effectiveness of the skin barrier in skin cells. Omega-3s help to keep skin cells healthy from within and come with proven benefits on skin elasticity, smoothness and inflammation levels.

Astaxanthin, a natural antioxidant, acts on all skin layers to help protect skins cells from damage by free radicals. Astaxanthin helps improve the skin’s resilience to environmental factors. It also supports the skins ability to replenish important components that contribute to the maintenance of hydrated, smooth, elastic and younger-looking skin.

Choline, an essential nutrient with a host of functions in the body, can regulate the volumes and water content of our skin cells and is therefore essential to help maintaining moisture levels in the skin.

Marine phospholipids work at the level of the skin cells deep in the skin layers to help maintain hydration, elasticity and optimal barrier function by reducing water loss and improving the lipid barrier.
