Because the real beauty secret is nutrition!

Skin is the body’s first protective barrier against numerous external aggressions, as well as internal changes. Stress, lack of sleep, poor diet…So many factors can jeopardise healthy skin.

After age 40, it loses its radiance and the dreaded visible signs of ageing appear: wrinkles, fine lines, dull complexion...

Fortunately, nature provides solutions to its own problems and offers bioactive compounds with proven efficacy.

Active principles with proven efficacy

Below we set out the main elements present in humans that help contribute to youthful skin.

We can’t fail to mention the best known of these: collagen. This protein occupies most of the skin’s extracellular matrix. Its presence (80% type I collagen in young skin) decreases gradually with age (annual loss of around 1.5%) (1). However, its role is fundamental: it protects the barrier of the epidermis, essential against UV rays, and visibly improves skin’s elasticity (2,3). It is hydrolysed for better absorption, and in this form it remains in the skin for up to 96 hours after ingestion! (2)

Hyaluronic acid, another anti-ageing must-have, is a polysaccharide with viscoelastic and lubricating properties. It naturally retains water molecules in the skin, boosting rehydration and resistance (2,4).

Skin ageing is associated with an increase in cellular oxidation. Coenzyme Q 10, present in mitochondria, has antioxidant and energising properties that help to reduce facial wrinkles (5).

The best natural ingredients

The main source of antioxidants comes from the natural foods we eat. Several plants, fruits and vegetables are formidable anti-ageing allies that help take care of our skin from the inside.  

Native to the West Indies, Central America and the Caribbean, acerola fruit (Malpighia glabra L.) contains up to 60 times more vitamin C than an orange! However, this vitamin, a powerful antioxidant, is also essential for collagen synthesis (6).

Another anti-ageing fruit is the blueberry (Vaccinium myrtillus L.). Rich in antioxidant polyphenols, it has restorative and anti-inflammatory properties and helps to prevent the photoaging of the skin (7,8).

Anaskin, the perfect synergy

Anastore store has created an innovative dietary supplement designed to care for your skin from the inside. For lasting results, nothing compares to deep action with the best natural ingredients.

We have chosen the best active principles: hyaluronic acid and coenzyme Q10 from biotechnologies, as well as hydrolysed and deodorised collagen of marine origin, with excellent bioavailability.

By combining it with acerola and blueberry extract, Anaskin improves collagen synthesis and maintains oxidative balance.

With its refreshing lime flavour, each sachet of Anaskin restores skin’s youthful appearance in the healthiest tastiest way possible, without even thinking about it!
