Does your skin speak your age?

Our skin is at the mercy of various factors such as sun, pollution, improper diet, chemical compounds etc.
It is in direct contact with the environment and exposed to many external stress factors. Stress-inducing factors such as UV light, pollution lead to an increased buildup of free radicals that cause damage at the cellular level and accelerate the ageing process making the skin appear older than it actually is. Natural ageing process and environmental influences can cause the waterproof protective skin barrier to break down, allowing the skin to lose moisture and become dry. These free radicals cause lipid peroxidation of the top layer of skin reducing the natural barrier function. Excess free radical breaks down the collagen matrix leading to wrinkle formation and loss of elastin along with the development of age spots.

THE OUTER APPEARANCE OF THE SKIN IS A

REFLECTION OF A PERSON’S INNER HEALTH AND VITALITY

Skin is the largest organ of the body and its health is crucial for our survival. It is the first line of defense and plays an important role in helping the body carry out vital processes. The skin has a complex structure consisting of different layers with each having unique and important functions. Our skin is constantly exposed to oxidative stress from internal and external stressors such as bad diet, metabolic byproducts and various environmental factors like pollution and UV rays. Oxidative stress stimulates the production of highly reactive molecules called ‘free radicals’ which initiate a chain reaction, attacking other cells and causing damage to the skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, roughness and loss of elasticity. To slow down the aging process and reduce the visible signs of aging, protection must be provided to all layers to the skin, from the inside out.

“When looking to prevent or manage skin problems, most people believe that products that are applied topically are the most effective solution. Products that are applied to the surface of the skin predominantly affect the epidermis–the outermost layer – and are limited in their ability to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin.”

The superior protection that natural astaxanthin provides to the skin ­compared to other antioxidants has encouraged skin care experts and health professionals around the world to endorse it as an essential anti-aging nutraceutical.

LAYERS OF SKIN

SIGNS OF AGEING

Around the age of 25, the first signs of ageing start to become seeming on the surface of the skin. Fine lines appear first, and over time wrinkles, a loss of volume and a loss of elasticity become noticeable. Our skin ages for a variety of different reasons. Many of the origins of skin ageing are entirely natural and cannot be altered. There are, however, several factors that can cause skin to age prematurely, and these can be influenced. A holistic approach to lifestyle and skincare can help to reduce the visible signs of skin ageing and prevent premature skin ageing. Understanding the way that internal and external factors affect the skin’s structure and function can help to inform choices about treatment and care.

 

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

There are three main signs of overall skin ageing. Each one affects the look of the face in a different way.

 

Wrinkles

Loss of Volume

Loss of Density

CAUSES & TRIGGERS

Skin ages due to internal and external factor. Understanding these factors helps us to care for skin as it ages, reduce the visible signs of skin ageing and prevent untimely skin ageing.

INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL FACTOR WHICH CAUSES SKIN AGING

ASTAXANTHIN- UV & DAMAGE PROTECTION

World’s Most Powerful Antioxidant

Defence against the Signs of Aging

What’s the secret of Japanese women’s flawless skin?

Minimize the exposure to the sun, a diet rich in antioxidants and their latest discovery, Astaxanthin.

While natural ageing can cause the loss of skin suppleness and elasticity, the sun’s UV-induced free radicals are more harmful to the skin because they accelerate the ageing process. Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant which has anti-inflammatory effects & provides anti-ageing support. Research shows that Astaxanthin provides protection from UV damage, shrinks wrinkles, and makes age spots smaller. Among its many health benefits, astaxanthin’s ability to act rapidly against free radicals on the skin’s surface, dermis and epidermis are particularly helpful in:

  • Reversing premature signs of ageing,
  • Maintaining a youthful appearance, and
  • Preventing UV induced skin cancer

Astaxanthin is the world’s most powerful antioxidant harvested from the microalgae, Haematococcus Pluvialis. Astaxanthin is 6,000 times stronger than Vitamin C and 550 times stronger than Vitamin E.

 BENEFITS

  • The most powerful antioxidant from nature that supports to neutralize the free radicals from causing skin damage.
  • Improves elasticity by strengthening the collagen layer.
  • Reduces the size of wrinkles and improves skin texture.
  • Promotes firmness and reduces UV damage.
  • It deeply penetrates the skin and provides protection to all the skin layers inside out.
  • It is shown to be an efficient absorber of specific UV rays that may contribute to skin ageing, pigmentation and reduced skin elasticity.
  • Helps skin to maintain moisture levels.
  • Reduces puffiness by suppressing the inflammatory pathway.
  • Prevents and reduces the presence of UV-induced wrinkles by protecting the dermal layer against oxidative stress dysfunction.
  • It helps to reduce the risk of skin cancer by protecting against accumulated DNA damage.

CO-Q10 COMPLEX-REGENERATION

Co-Q10 Complex Oil

CoQ10 is extensively recognized as a nutrient which protects the heart health. Recent research indicates that against CoQ10 may have a wide range of benefits that include preventing skin cancer and photoaging, guarding prostate and breast cancers, supporting healthy blood sugar levels in diabetics, and preventing endothelial dysfunction and vascular disease.
The level of Co-Enzyme Q10 within the skin rises; it’s at peaks at 20 to 30 years of age and then gradually diminishes with age. Most women over 30 years have optimum levels of CoQ10 in the skin. The lack of CoQ10 results in an impeded ability to produce collagen and elastin. Collagen is essential to make your skin firm, while elastin gives skin flexibility to your skin. The loss of collagen and elastin causes your skin to wrinkle and sag.
The natural, yeast-derived form of CoQ10 used in the study was also much better absorbed than synthetic formulations. The researchers stated that daily topical application of antioxidants such as CoQ10 may form the basis of a lifelong strategy to protect the skin against the effects of oxidative stress.

One of the recent researches suggests that topically applied CoQ10 may protect the skin against photo ageing, or skin ageing caused by exposure to ultraviolet light. German scientists demonstrated that topically applied CoQ10 penetrates the skin’s surface to the living layers of the epidermis, where it reduced oxidative stress, a known contributor to ageing and disease. They also noted a marked reduction in the depth of wrinkles following the application of CoQ10. In addition, topical CoQ10 helped protect the skin from the effects of UVA rays, a particularly harmful, DNA-damaging spectrum of ultraviolet light that conventional sunscreens do not block effectively. (See “The Sunscreen Paradox,” Life Extension, June 2006.) The German researchers concluded that CoQ10 may offset the effects of photo ageing and thus promote more youthful-looking skin. Most important new applications for CoQ10 may be the prevention of deadly melanoma.

BENEFITS
• It energizes the skin.
• It protects against photo ageing.
• It rejuvenates skin by stimulating skin cell activity.
• It stimulates collagen production.
• It helps to neutralize harmful free radicals.
• It is a potent antioxidant that acts against oxidative damage.
• Increased elastin gene expression
• Promoted collagen expression (type IV)

VITAMIN E (TPGS)- MOISTURIZER & PIGMENTATION REDUCTION

Vitamin E (TPGS)

Vitamin E TPGS is a water-soluble derivative of the natural form of d-α-tocopherol. In addition to serving as a water-soluble source of vitamin E, TPGS has unique properties due to its dual combination of lipophilicity and hydrophilicity. Its applications include the formulation of lipophilic and poorly soluble nutrients and natural compounds and enhanced absorption and bioavailability. TPGS has a proven record of safety and efficacy in cosmetics. In order to protect itself, the skin already contains 1% alpha-tocotrienol, 3% gamma-tocotrienol, 87% alpha-tocopherol, and 9% gamma-tocopherol as part of its antioxidant defence system.
The process of skin ageing has been linked to the destruction caused by free radicals over time. Although there are many different factors at work, wrinkled skin is largely the result of cumulative UV exposure. UV rays from the sun make the oxygen molecules in the dermis “spin,” causing them to split into two free radicals. The destructive power of these toxic molecules gradually breaks down healthy collagen and compromises the skin’s integrity. Fortunately, scientists have found that the gamma tocotrienol form of vitamin E may regulate certain gene signals in the skin that help prevent the damage typically seen after UVB exposure.

BENEFITS
• Enhance the penetration and absorption of skin lipids.
Excellent moisturizer that helps to keep the skin healthy and soft.
• Locks moisture into the skin and prevents dehydration.
• Vitamin E TPGS is able to deeply penetrate the skin and provides broad spectrum defense against signs of skin aging from the inside out.
• It helps in maintaining the barrier function of the skin.
• It helps in nourishing your skin from within.
• It promotes healthy skin, and reverses signs of ageing.
• It helps to regenerate new skin cells and can lighten brown spots or scars.

YEAST BETAGLUCAN- SKIN IMMUNITY

Yeast Beta-Glucan

Skin immunity plays a key role in the healthy functioning skin. Immune cells in the skin function as soldiers, by constantly preventing the invasion of microorganisms, and play an important role in maintaining homeostasis. These cells are crucial for the constant repair, protection and renewal of tissue. Thus, efficient skin immunity is essential to attain functional, healthy and beautiful skin. Beta Glucan increases natural self-protecting capabilities of the skin and also accelerates skin recovery. It is a strong anti-irritating and anti-inflammatory agent. Beta glucan helps heal skin from over-exposure to the sun, mild burns, rashes and even cuts and wounds. It has been shown to stimulate collagen production and can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It strengthens skin’s structure and aids in the restoration of damaged skin cells.

BENEFITS
• Yeast is an antioxidant and antioxidants strengthen skin structure and help produce healthy skin cells toward off environmental damage.
• Yeast is a great source of beta-glucan, a polysaccharide with anti-inflammatory benefits capable of reducing redness and other signs of irritation.
• May help stimulate tissue repair and exhibit properties shown to protect skin.
• Can hydrate skin, repair DNA, produce collagen and brighten skin.
• Fewer lines and wrinkles
• Increased skin tone and elasticity
• Smoother surface

NIACINAMIDE- RESTORE THE SKIN

Niacinamide

In the skincare world, Niacinamide is an antioxidant, also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinic acid. It occurs naturally in our bodies, as well as in a ton of the food we eat. Niacinamide is a derivative of Vitamin B3 that suppresses melanin from reaching the surface of the skin and protects the skin from further UV damage. Too much melanin (which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that is responsible for both its colour the skin’s absorption of UV rays) can result in age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation.
“Topical application of Niacinamide has been shown to increase ceramide and free fatty acid levels in the skin, prevent skin from losing water content, and stimulate microcirculation in the dermis” according to the British Journal of Dermatology in 2000.

BENEFITS: Niacinamide is an exceptional skin care ingredient because it can treat nearly any skin concern. It is an effective treatment for the following issues
• Acne and breakouts
• Hyperpigmentation and dark spots
• Scarring
• Uneven skin texture
• Oversized pores
• Minimize lines and wrinkles
• Protects skin from infrared light
• Boosting the immunity of your skin
• Redness and sensitivity
• Compromised skin barrier, which looks like itchy, flakey, or overly thin skin
• Premature aging, especially fine lines and loss of tone
• Over production of oil
• Dullness and sallowness
• Improve the skin’s barrier functions by increasing cell turnover and proliferation, as well as lipid production.
• Helps minimize the look of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
• It has ability to visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, dullness, and a weakened skin surface.
• Niacinamide can also mitigate the damage environmental attack can cause, and is stable in the presence of heat and light.
