The new pioneering supplement from Advanced Nutritional Programme, Skin Blue Filter, has been created to shield skin from sun damage, specifically from the effects of blue light which makes up 6 times more of it than UV does.
Advanced Nutritional Programme is clearing up misconceptions about skin and the sun. One of such tales is that UV is the most damaging type of light to come from the sun, or that most of the blue light that we are exposed to comes from electronic devices and LED bulbs. The truth is that the most of the blue light that reaches us comes from the sun’s rays, which are made up of 25-30% blue light versus the 5% that is made up of UV.
Skin researchers therefore embarked upon a journey to develop a new supplement to form a shield for the skin. Skin Blue Filter has been proven to both protect and repair the skin, reducing damage to the skin barrier by up to 60%.
The negative impact of blue light on skin have been established by multiple independent studies, some of which include the trigger of production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) causing oxidative damage to the lipid layer, the damage of cellular DNA increasing inflammation, and the destruction of fibroblasts and keratinocytes. It also causes an increase of pigmentation and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), which degrades collagen and elastin, ultimately accelerating skin ageing and leading to lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.
The supplement shields the skin from within, with a synergy of cell-protecting nutrients, including a team of targeted antioxidants to provide elevated protection and anti-inflammation benefits. Ingredients include Vitamin E, a key antioxidant that protects our skin cells as well as DNA and lipid layers, Biotin Vitamin B7 which contributes to the maintenance of normal skin health, Lutein + Zeaxanthin which increases skin luminosity, elasticity and gives skin a more even, radiant skin tone, and Olive Fruit Extract, which provides an array of skin and anti-ageing benefits such as reducing appearance of skin discolouration and uneven skin tone.
The hybrid of ingredients is encased in brilliant blue capsules, the colour of which is derived from spirulina extract. The product is suitable for all skin types and ages, and particularly for individuals looking for age prevention, challenged with light sensitivity, or has high environmental exposure during the sunny seasons. The supplements are vegan friendly, free from gluten, dairy, yeast, salt, and soya, providing a fully accessible solution to one of the most common causes of modern skin health.
You can purchase Skin Blue Filter directly from Advanced Nutritional Programme, or from other leading outlets at a RRP of £48 for a 60-day supply.
