No matter how vigilant you are, your skin takes a beating. It's a tough world out there - and your skin is on the front lines.

However, all is not lost. You don't have to resign yourself to your skin showing every battle it has waged with the elements.

Nor do you have to suffer further abuse through lasers, needles or surgery.

Put these 3 natural skin renewal steps to work. And revel in what you see when you look in the mirror.

The Most Important Skin Nutrient: Water

Your skin needs water more than anything else.

Consider this: Newborns' skin can have as much as 83% water content. [1] Young children have about 65% water concentration in their skin. However, as we age, our bodies just can't seem to hold onto it as well. An adult woman averages about 55% water.[2]

Now it's hard to change how your body retains water as you get older. But no matter what, you can make sure you replenish your water supply more quickly by drinking more.

When you're well hydrated, you'll enjoy fuller, smoother skin. Wrinkles and sags start to disappear as your skin stretches tautly across your face.

But the benefits go even further...

- Your body uses water to help remove toxins from your body.

- Water increases blood flow, making it easier for your body to bring nutrients to your skin.

- Good hydration increases your immune system's mobility, making it easier for your body to repair damaged areas.

Simply by drinking more water you'll make it easier for your body's innate repair crews to do their work on your skin.

Essential Skin Nutrition

From collagen-production to immunity, your skin depends on good nutrition to keep doing its job... and looking good while doing it.

Key nutrients for your skin include:

- Vitamin C - Vitamin C is a key nutrient in collagen production. Even more intriguing, recent laboratory studies indicate that vitamin C may actually turn on genes in your skin cells responsible for regeneration.[3]

- Vitamin A -Recent research shows that vitamin A seems to increase the production of two key skin health components - procollagen, the precursor to collagen, and glycosaminoglycan. Glycosaminoglycan seems to help your skin hold onto water, help with collagen production and reduce wrinkles.[4]

- Nucleic Acids - Anti-aging pioneer, Dr. Ben Frank, author of the classic book Eat and Grow Young, pointed out, healthy cell replication requires a good supply of nucleic acids. Dr. Frank noted that a diet high in nucleotides resulted in less wrinkles and better skin tone.[5]

- Beta Glucans -Clinical studies have demonstrated these special immune-stimulating molecules can help burn patients heal,[6] protect your skin from UV light[7] and speed up overall skin renewal.[8]

By giving your skin these essential nutrients, you help your skin take care of itself.

Restore Your Skin

Beaten up by the elements, your skin is constantly regenerating itself. Cell by cell, your body keeps rebuilding this outer frontier. On average the entire outer layer of your skin is replaced every week.

Your body requires tremendous nutrition simply to fuel this constantly changing set of cells.

And it also requires very specific nutrition that stimulates and supports cell replication. Nutrition like chlorella growth factor (CGF).

Growth factors are found throughout nature, in plants and animals alike. They are the chemical signals that promote wound healing and tissue growth, through cell replication and differentiation.

Chlorella growth factor (CGF), found only in chlorella, stimulates renewal exceptionally well. And CGF's renewing effects don't stop with chlorella. It's been shown to safely speed up tissue repair and healing in our skin. In lab studies, researchers have demonstrated that it even seems to slow down aging at the cellular level.[9]

This Special Food Nourishes And Renews Your Skin

Hydrate, nourish and renew. Your skin needs you to take on all 3 of these tasks.

When it comes to nourishment and renewal, the tiny green algae - chlorella - gives you extraordinary skin nutrition.

With vitamin C... rich in vitamin A... Full of beta glucans... with more concentrated nucleotides than any other food... and the only source of CGF...

Chlorella feeds your skin for regeneration.

- You can apply chlorella topically in a skin care cream. Your skin will eat it up directly.

- And you can also take it as a skin supplement. It's a tasty addition to your diet.

Either way, your skin will respond beautifully. Add this special alga to your skin care routine and you'll love what you see in the mirror.
