The Dr. Oz Show Today, 1/10/2014, showed new research on pills that can protect your skin from the sun and fight wrinkles for around $10 a month. Oz always says getting nutrients from the foods we eat is the best way but he realizes that supplements play an important role in filling in the gaps for some of us. Dr. Tess Mauricio comes out on the show and she has three new supplements that are cheap and will help you look younger.
Lipowheat helps lessen dry itchy skin. Oz has said many times that scratching damages our skin and it can cause us to look older. this supplement actually draws moisture to your skin from the inside. Oz says we need 350mg per day and take it first thing in the morning. You will see wrinkles fade in as little as 2 weeks.
Collagen is important to keep skin elastic and smooth. As we age, we lose collagen and that is where we see wrinkles forming. Oz says taking oral collagen, 2,000mg each morning, will have your skin smooth and soft again in no time. This costs around $12 for a one month supply and you need to make sure you see Hydrolyzed Collagen on the label of ingredients.
PLE Sunscreen Pill
Polypodium Leucotomos Extract or PLE is being hailed as a game changer in the fight against skin damage from exposure to the sun. We have all been told to protect ourselves from the UV Radiation by applying topical sunscreen products. Those creams and lotions can be messy and they wash off when you get into the water.
PLE is a pill so it won’t wash off. Oz says that we should still use the extra protection found in topical sunscreens but this will add a layer of protection. You need 240mg of this per day and you need to take it about 20 minutes before going out in the sun. It only costs about $10 for a one month supply.
Oz states that research shows that people who use sunscreen regularly look about 25% younger than those who do not. This little pill lets you forget about when you need to reapply sunscreen and it protects you everywhere and not just at the beach or pool.
That is the second part of the show today. You can read about natural ways to fight wrinkles in our recap of the first half of the show.
