Today I’m going to talk about one of those skincare saviours that is a versatile ingredient that is actually both for our health and also for the skin. Yes, I’m talking about glutathione. One of the most controversial ingredients added to Asian skin routines due to it’s lightening and brightening properties, glutathione is actually many skincare products littered on the real (and virtual) shelves. So what is it exactly? What’s the best way to take it? Let’s find out…
What Is Glutathione?
Glutathione is an antioxidant present in almost every cell in the body, playing a role in the detoxification of drugs. Usually released by our liver, think of it as an antioxidant produced in our body.
Glutathione is also used for maintaining the body’s defence system (immune system) and used to treat glaucoma, liver disease, cancer and various heart conditions. According to studies, Glutathione is actually inhaled by patients suffering from lung diseases and HIV diseases too.
The Many Uses Of Glutathione
Glutathione levels in the body may be reduced by a number of factors, including poor nutrition, environmental toxins, stress and age. It has proven to be highly beneficial in boosting metabolism, lowering inflammation, maintaining youthful skin and providing energy and hydration to the body.
While it is present in the body, most people take it orally or intravenously to experience long-lasting health and skin benefits. Safe to be used as a dietary supplement, it has great anti-ageing properties since it reverses oxidative damage.
It can also lighten skin tone by converting melanin to a lighter colour and then deactivating the enzyme tyrosinase, which helps produce the pigment.
For both health and skin benefits, we offer REVIV Glutathione Wellness Booster Shots. A mix of glutathione, vitamin C and other antioxidants, it cleanses your organs and improves your skin, hair and nails.
Note: Please consult your dermatologist or wellness expert before opting for glutathione.
