Novuskin Lift – Second Month Update
From my post – Coming off the Pill Novuskin Lift became my rescue supplement to at least fight the withdrawal symptoms that I will have after stopping synthetic hormones/birth control for my PCOS. I am paranoid that my acne will go back, my facial hair will going to be thicker again and in general, I am freaking out to be ugly.
It’s normal when you have seen the benefits of a good skin from using the pills but what calmed me is that nutrition and overall health will give you the result that you wanted.
My skin looked brighter and I do not have massive breakouts. I do have pimples and facial hair but it is not as “ugly” looking as it is when I was still in college. My overall skin appearanced look healthier as if I am really nourished from within.
My hair fall lessened too, before I can cover a brush bed with my hair and I can get hair just from finger-combing my hair. Now I can count how many hair fall I am getting throughout the day.
What makes Novuskin Lift special?
Also in my previous post, when I was just trying them. I have mentioned the different nutrients packed in each tablet of Novuskin Lift. Let us uncover each ingredient and how it benefits our overall health.
Marine Fish Collagen
It is considered as the best collagen source for its bioavailability. Collagen promotes skin repair, wrinkle reduction, and improves the overall appearance of the skin – young and smooth.
You will noticed that as you get older doctors might prescibe collagen supplements as it also good for your joint health. At least that what I saw in my mom, for her sciatica recovery.
Collagen is also found in supplement drinks.
When we hear yeast, we know it is for baking, little that we know it also good for the skin. Yeast extract has complex mix of proteins, sugar, and amino acid which helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. It also boost collagen production and contributes to the overall brigthtening of the skin.
I have known grapeseed since I was a child. There used to be an extract supplement being sold and my parents used to give me 3-5 drops of it as my supplement.
Grapeseed extract is rich in anti-oxidant that promotes healthy skin and it is anti-aging too.
Is this why red wine is also good for the health? LOL
First time to meet this actually, it looks like a Chinese medicinal herb for me. Horsetail has silica and anti-oxidant agents for a wrinkle free skin. It is used to heal burns and wounds on the skin as well as promotes overall health of our bladder and kidney.*
*No backup study, please ask your doctor.
The fame of glutathione never died down because it is the master anti-oxidant of all. Glutathione is naturally produced by our body, but since we do not get the max nutrients that we need every single day, supplements were invented to compensate for it.
Glutathione prevents damage to cells caused by free radicals and other toxins inside our body. It also improves the appearance of the skin making it brighter and healthy.
Broccoli here is high in Glutathione. You can also eat beets, kale, spinach, garlic, brussel sprouts, and other veggies rich in sulfur.
Pine Bark Extract
Pine Bark Extract has Pycnogenol which is good for blood circulation and overall cardiovascular health. For the skin, it rejuvenates skin elasticity while boosting the collagen too.
Other food rich in Pycnogenol are cinnamon bark, grapeseed, cocoa beans, black currant, green tea, and black tea.
Green Tea Extract
We all know that drinking green tea every day helps improve our overall health. It does help for weight loss and it has polyphenols perfect for anti-aging.
Don’t you know there are restaurants in Korea which serves healthy meals. They have korean ginseng soup and some chicken dishes with real roots in them. It is also one of their hang over remedy. I’ve seen in AFC while watching Foodie Duo.
Korean Ginseng has ginsenoside saponins considered as potent sleep aid, anti-inflammatory properties, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that help refine and rehydrate the skin, increase oxygenation and improve blood circulation.
If you read your ketchup labels you will know the benefit Lycopene has found in tomatoes. Lycopene is ten times more potent than Vitamin E. It is good for the heart and at the same time for the skin.
Zinc is used to treat and prevent zinc deficiency. It is also used for boosting the immune system, treating the common cold and recurrent ear infections, and preventing lower respiratory infections. (Source: webmd.com)

Taking all necessary nutrients
You see to support our overall health we need to eat all food mentioned above. It is still incomplete as there other important nutrients that we need. It is overwhelming to go to the grocery just to eat them all. Our personal taste might not like those certain food too.
Thanks to science we can still reap the benefits of all the nutrients.
Just a disclaimer, always consult your physician before getting supplements. You might be allergic to something or some will not work for you if you a specific health condition.
Moreover, take care of your skin not just for its physical appearance but for your overall health. In the end, our skin looks really better if our overall health is better.
