Miracle ingredient: Three ways to incorporate Pycnogenol into your beauty routine

There are so many ingredients in skincare products.

Since science is always evolving. A lot of the magic of what gets discovered eventually makes its way into skincare, and since skincare is all about keeping your skin in check and help us stay looking young, these ingredients help with the evolution of the both our faces and the products we use.

One of the ingredients I recently discovered was pycnogenol. Pycnogenol French maritime pine bark is a natural supplement used for many conditions, including ADHD and dry skin. It contains active bioflavonoids shown in numerous studies to provide a range of benefits.

So how can it help your skin? Well, among many different benefits, it helps to reduce the signs of aging as it can help improve hydration and the elasticity of skin.  It has also been shown to increase the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen, both of which are found in many skincare products.

Now if this is something that sounds amazing to you but don’t know where to start, then keep reading for some of my recommendations. Healthy Origins Pycnogenol vitamins

Healthy Origins Pycnogenol Veggie Capsules

Okay, so this first one isn’t a skincare product, but is the easiest way to incorporate pycnogenol into your life.

The Healthy Origins Pycnogenol Veggie Capsules (C$69.45) is a capsule that is designed to be taken once or twice daily, preferably with a meal or as directed by a physician.  These capsules support a wide range of body supports, including heart health, circulatory health, skincare, eye health, joint case, women’s health, cognitive function, respiratory health, and more.

These are great to take if you don’t want to switch up your skincare routine just yet but still want to incorporate the magic of this ingredient in your lifestyle.
