Human skin possesses the remarkable ability to stretch and regain its initial shape. This is known as skin elasticity. Skin elasticity is possible through a connective tissue called collagen, which may degenerate during the course of our lives. This degeneration may be due to nutritional deficiencies, exposure to sun light, pollution, injuries, aging and several other factors that impact our everyday lives.
Keeping the skin smooth and free of wrinkles for as long as possible, is the main objective of preventive skin care. Apart from hydration and smoothing, skin elasticity is another essential factor that determines the health of our skin. How we protect the skin as we age, depends very much on our skin’s ability to maintain its elasticity.
As we age, our skin loses some of its elasticity, partly due to the decrease in the production of elastin. Elastin, is a protein which gives skin its much desired suppleness. Without elastin, wrinkles suddenly start appearing on your face and the skin begins to look droopy.
Part of an efficient skin regimen is proper nutrition. Adequate nutrition is vital to the health and elasticity your skin. Vitamins that improve texture of skin work in a specific way and bring about many desirable effects. The skin’s elasticity can be improved with the use of vitamins, since they provide complete internal nourishment by regenerating new cells and increasing the production of natural skin oil called sebum.
Certain vitamins, whether ingested as food or taken as a facial serum, should also be a part of any skin care routine that aims to among other things, maintain the elasticity in your skin. Following are some tips and essential ingredients that should be included when maintaining a skin care regimen that improves skin elasticity with little or no extra effort.
Vitamin E is the primary vitamin that revitalizes skin. It makes it soft and supple. Vitamin E also reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and, when applied topically, smoothens dry or rough skin. It also acts as an antioxidant and eliminates free radicals (which cause severe cellular damage) from the body. The maximum dosage recommended is 400 IU per day. Avoid skin care products that contain synthetic vitamin E, as these have been shown to actually be harmful. Only consume natural vitamin E from a reliable source, such as the kind found in RG-CELL from Time Slip Solutions.
If you want to maintain your skin-tone and elasticity ensure that you take adequate amounts of B vitamin. Skin care products containing vitamin B complex keep you looking youthful. Vitamin B assists in the production of skin cells, helps with skin cell water retention, and may increase the plumpness lost with a loss in skin elasticity.

Vitamin A forces your skin cells to turn over faster, bringing new fresh skin cells to the surface. Intake of vitamin A helps to improve the skin’s moisture and thereby promote skin elasticity. Argan oil found in RG-Cell is a rich natural source of essential fatty acids particularly linoleic acid which protects the skin from harmful free radicals, it also contains a balanced amount of vitamins A and E, both of which play a crucial role in improving the skin’s condition. This is why we recommend RG-Cell as a base layer before any other cosmetics or cosmeceuticals are applied.
