Fern Extract: The New Secret to Glowing Skin

Bright, healthy, glowing and youthful skin is almost everyone’s dream. This is one of the main reasons why researchers have been constantly innovating new and improved brightening products and bleaching treatments for decades, even up until today.

What most of us are unaware of is that most of these products contain harsh chemical ingredients that can deteriorate your skin’s health and can even cause illnesses such as cancer, respiratory tract infections, even possibly put intoxicants in your system.

From countless lotions, sprays, sticks, and oral supplements available in the market today, it can be quite overwhelming for consumers to pick just one product or brand that works effectively for them.

Using whitening lotions or topical sunscreens with high SPF (sun protection factor) may be a good option for taking care of your skin, but you need to know that applying these products alone is not enough. With the increasingly hot and harsh climate today, it is imperative to take extra measures when basking in the sun.

Do you know that fern extract is commonly used as a key ingredient in nutritional supplements to defend our skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays? In scientific terms, this extract is called Polypodium Leucotomos. Researchers from all over the world have studied this extract for decades; including the Harvard Medical School Department of Dermatology and have provided significant results on skin health using the fern extract.

Fern extract buys our skin extra time when exposed to ultraviolet rays. It provides increased amount of time for the skin to burn under these harsh conditions. It also provides protection in the skin cells and as deep as our DNA from cell death and decomposition. This means that aging symptoms are addressed by fern extracts as well. Studies have also shown  overexposure to the sun has effects on the skin tissues, which is one of the main causes of cancer and wrinkle formations.

Topical products with fern extracts are great skin savers too, but combining it with oral supplements infused with the same extracts promises brighter, healthier and fairer skin.
