An alternative to a facelift may be as simple as taking Renew from Healthy Body Inc. Supporting beauty from the inside out, Renew may help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve the structural integrity of the skin.
Phytoceramides, the active ingredient in Renew, are taken orally and improve the cells you see as well as those you don't see within your body. Once taken as directed, cracked and damaged skin is moisturized. Cells throughout your body rebuild, rejuvenating you from the inside out.
Clinical tests of the active ingredient in Renew measured an improvement in moisture retention and appearance with a decrease in dryness and roughness. Bottom line, Renew does what no lotion can. It works with your body to improve the look and feel of your skin, hair and even your other cells within.*
The outer layer of your skin is made up of skin cells and connecting lipids. Think of the skin cells as the bricks and the lipids as the mortar. When the lipids—which are made up of over 40% ceramides—break down, the skin barrier is compromised and moisture is lost. It has been shown that we constantly lose ceramides as we age by Dr. Imokhwa. Worse yet, most foods we eat do not contain ceramides, and the only way to fight this aging process is to supplement with phytoceramides from plants.
When taken as a suppplement, the rice-based ceramides work their way through the body and into the outer layers of the skin, rebuilding the lipid barrier and preserving moisture for improved skin health and appearance.
Numerous test have been done regarding the effectiveness of rice, wheat, corn and tuber-based ceramides for moisturizing, fibroblast growth and anti-inflammatory effect. in every cases, rice-based ceramides outperformed all others. See Imokhwa for complete details. In many of these tests, Ceramide-PCD was used, and the moisturizing effect is shown below
Ceramide-PCD™ was clinically tested in Japan to study the moisturizing effects on people. This study, released June 1, 2000, was completed by an independent third party at Soiken, Japan, Institute of General Medical Sciences. Moisture retention, dryness, roughness and appearance of the skin were all tested and analyzed by both dermatologist and 3-Dimensional microscopic analyses (VISIOSCAN by Courage and KhazaGmbh).
