As summer turns to fall, your skin may feel and look more dry. Of course, this means you'll probably reach for a heavier face moisturizer, but what about internal hydration? Experts say you need to drink more water in the winter, so pouring yourself an extra glass may be a good idea; however, there may be one more way to help hydrate your skin from within.

How astaxanthin and phytoceramides affect internal skin hydration.

The secret: mbg's cellular beauty+. This revolutionary formula features a blend of science-backed cosmeceutical ingredients, a few of which specifically affect overall skin hydration.* 

The first powerhouse ingredient is astaxanthin—an antioxidant that can help combat oxidative stress in the skin. Beyond its purpose as a free-radical fighter, this carotenoid has been clinically shown to improve skin hydration, elasticity, and smoothness after six to eight weeks.*

As with any supplement ingredient, it's important to keep the sourcing and dose in mind. In our star formula, we use a premium algal-sourced form of astaxanthin called AstaReal®. This form, in particular, has been clinically researched and shown to reduce fine lines and age spots1 after six to 16 weeks.*

The benefits don't stop there—this blend is also packed with plant-sourced ceramides (aka phytoceramides). In our blend, we use Ceramosides®, which have been clinically shown to significantly increase skin hydration2, elasticity, and smoothness and ease transepidermal water loss (TEWL), roughness, and a wrinkled appearance.* 

To say the very least, these ingredients are beneficial for overall skin health and top-notch for increased skin hydration.* So if you're gearing up for the drier months with heavier topicals, adding a supplement like cellular beauty+ may be the cherry on top of a great hydrating skin care regimen.

The takeaway. 

Many people experience drier skin in the cooler months and therefore may benefit from an ultra-hydrating skin care routine. One way to supercharge your regimen is to consume science-backed ingredients that address your skin's hydration levels from the inside out, like astaxanthin and phytoceramides. Here's a full timeline of how long it takes to see results from cellular beauty+, if you want to learn more. 

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking medications, consult with your doctor before starting a supplement routine. It is always optimal to consult with a health care provider when considering what supplements are right for you.
