Skin-firming Nicecream

Looking for a skin-nourishing summer treat? Look no further! This delicious collagen-boosting nicecream is packed with skin-firming flavanoids, prized for their anti-ageing properties.

Most supermarket icecreams are packed with sugars and artificial sweeteners, colours and additives. Excess sugars are a big no-no when it comes to helping your skin look plump and youthful.

When you have sugar molecules in your system, they bombard your body's cells causing a process known as glycation. This particularly affects collagen and elastin fibres, which normally keep your complexion looking plump and supple. When glycation occurs, these become discoloured, weak and less springy- and show up on the skin's surface as wrinkles, sagginess and a loss of radiance.

This process also makes your skin more vulnerable to other causes of skin-ageing - like UV light and cigarette smoke.

We recommend you skip the store-bought icecream and whip up this better-for-you version with ingredients that will not only avoid damaging your collagen but actually help you build collagen fibres for more youthful, supple skin.

 

The star ingredient of this delicious frozen treat are raspberries. Recent nutricosmetic research has revealed the significant anti-ageing power of these berries. High in vitamin C, raspberries help to build collagen naturally. They are also high in ellagic acid which helps to protect collagen and elastin fibres from being destroyed, to keep skin looking firm and supple.

Raspberries also help to improve skin youthfulness due to their high antioxidant and anthocyanin content; these are nutrients that help to maintain youthful skin and protect against premature ageing. Raspberry seeds are very rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids which also help to keep skin hydrated, strengthen the skin barrier and keep wrinkles at bay.
