The condition of our skin is closely linked to our overall health. Taking care of our health, including skin health, naturally includes proper nutrition. But did you know that nutrition does not only include diet and possibly supplements, which are the things people normally pay the most attention to?
In fact, light and the associated "light hygiene" are also indispensable to good nutrition.
Our bodies are in contact with light every day and need it for optimal functioning. Exposure to light of certain wavelengths triggers a whole host of biochemical processes in our body that are crucial to our health, including skin health.
The problem arises when, as people living in modern society, we are exposed to a lot of artificial light that often lacks the wavelengths we need for our health.
Fortunately, there are very effective solutions available today to compensate for this deficiency.
Why are diet and collagen supplements alone not enough?
People are commonly used to take care of their skin through various dermatological and cosmetic supplements in the form of creams and oils, or they choose specific amino acids or collagen, which provide the skin with the necessary building blocks for its renewal and nourishment, but unfortunately often do not have the expected effect to a sufficient extent.
And why is that? Are people missing an essential piece of the puzzle?
The answer is that people lack the ability to activate collagen synthesis, which requires the previously mentioned light, and not just any light, but light of a specific wavelength, such as red and near-infrared light.
It's these types of wavelengths that we lack due to living indoors, and it's no wonder then that our skin doesn't look the way we'd like it to.
Red and near-infrared light and its almost unbelievable effects
Thanks to science's interest in red and near-infrared light, it has been found to have truly broad-spectrum and rejuvenating effects on our health, and now, thanks to modern technology, people all over the world are taking advantage of this and having great results.
The therapeutic use of red and near-infrared light has been found to be a safe method for skin rejuvenation, reducing wrinkles, fine lines, increasing collagen density, and removing visible scars by triggering cell renewal, increasing collagen and elastin synthesis, and starting rejuvenation processes.

Reduction of inflammation
Another very important effect of these types of wavelengths is the reduction of chronic or acute inflammation, not only of the skin! In practice, this means that by therapeutically incorporating red and infrared light, you can very effectively promote the healing of wounds, burns and even reduce UV-induced skin damage or various autoimmune or bacterial diseases such as Vitiligo or acne.

Acne is a very prevalent skin disorder that affects a large percentage of adolescents and it is not uncommon for it to appear into adulthood. It is not a serious life-threatening problem, but unfortunately it does negatively affect our social life.
Antibiotics and commonly prescribed medications often do not work and put people in a vicious circle of hope and disappointment, where they are still looking for an effective strategy to help.
One possible solution is to harness the healing potential of red and near-infrared light, which in studies has led to significant improvements in skin condition in people suffering from moderate acne, reducing inflammation and healing scars. (R)
Reduction of cellulite
One of the many other effects of red and near-infrared light is the reduction of cellulite, which is especially appreciated by women whose cellulite can reduce self-esteem and positive self-image.
Cellulite is caused by a combination of unhealthy collagen and elastin in the layers of the skin, where extra fat accumulates in fat cells. Red and near-infrared light combats cellulite by, on the one hand, increasing collagen and elastin production and, on the other, promoting the health of blood vessels and capillaries, which in turn transport more blood to the area.
Enjoy these effects from the comfort of your home!
Therefore, in order to enjoy the benefits of red and near-infrared light, you do not need to visit special clinics offering these services, but you can achieve these benefits from the comfort of your home using the increasingly popular red light therapy devices around the world.
