CHEMICAL FREE ANTI AGEING/ANTI WRINKLE
Is it really possible to do it all the natural way with out adding toxins to our skin care which eventually end up damaging the environment? Lets do some research and see where it takes us..
As you age, your skin becomes thinner and loses fat, causing it to sag and develop fine lines. The body produces less collagen and elastin, substances that enables the skin to maintain its smooth, plump and youthful appearance.
Many things cause our skin to age. Some things we cannot do anything about; others we can influence.
One thing that we cannot change is the natural aging process. It plays a key role. With time, we all get visible lines on our face. It is natural for our face to lose some of its youthful fullness. We notice our skin becoming thinner and drier. Our genes largely control when these changes occur. The medical term for this type of aging is “intrinsic aging.”
We can influence another type of aging that affects our skin. Our environment and lifestyle choices can cause our skin to age prematurely. The medical term for this type of aging is “extrinsic aging.” By taking some preventive actions, we can slow the effects that this type of aging has on our skin.
Whether its genes or our lifestyle choices that brings on premature ageing we can slow down the process by making the right choices and using products that are skin friendly and help cellular regeneration .
Protect your skin from the sun every day. Whether spending a day at the beach or running errands, sun protection is essential. You can protect your skin by seeking shade, covering up with sun-protective clothing — such as a lightweight and long-sleeved shirt, pants, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses with UV protection — and using sunscreen that is broad-spectrum, SPF 30 (or higher).(We are launching ours soon).
If you smoke, stop. Smoking greatly speeds up how quickly skin ages. It causes wrinkles and a dull, sallow complexion.
Avoid repetitive facial expressions. When you make a facial expression, you contract the underlying muscles. If you repeatedly contract the same muscles for many years, these lines become permanent. Wearing sunglasses can help reduce lines caused by squinting.
Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. Findings from a few studies suggest that eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables may help prevent damage that leads to premature skin aging. Findings from research studies also suggest that a diet containing lots of sugar or other refined carbohydrates can accelerate aging.
Drink less alcohol. Alcohol is rough on the skin. It dehydrates the skin, and in time, damages the skin. This can make us look older.
Exercise most days of the week. Findings from a few studies suggest that moderate exercise can improve circulation and boost the immune system. This, in turn, may give the skin a more-youthful appearance.
Cleanse your skin gently. Scrubbing your skin clean can irritate your skin. Irritating your skin accelerates skin aging. Gentle washing helps to remove pollution, makeup, and other substances without irritating your skin.
Wash your face twice a day and after sweating heavily. Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, irritates the skin, so you want to wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating.
Apply a facial moisturizer every day. Moisturizer traps water in our skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.(Our All day facial balm)
Stop using skin care products that sting or burn. When your skin burns or stings, it means your skin is irritated. Irritating your skin can make it look older.
How does our All day facial balm help in skin healing and reducing the wrinkles?
The miracle ingredient EPHEMER:
EPHEMER™ is a gametophyte extract taken from macroalgae cells grown in a laboratory and harvested at an ephemeral stage in the life cycle of Undaria Pinnatifida seaweed. This in-vitro cultivation of a cosmetic product is entirely unique. During this growth stage, the macroalgal cells accumulate anti-oxidant molecules.
EPHEMER™ protects the skin, after 24 hours by acting on the mitochondria, causing momentaneous reduction of free radicals. After 8 days, EPHEMER™ preserves mitochondrial DNA, which is essential for proper mitochondrial function. Mitochondrial DNA is also called 'Eve's Genes' since they are inherited solely from the mother.
This property has been confirmed through in-vivo testing. After 28 days, the skin shows a better ability to fight free radicals, versus placebo, a cause of skin aging. After 56 days, the skin's micro-relief has markedly improved compared to placebo.
Sporophyte is the common macroalgae form. Gametophytes are cells liberated by the sporophytes in the reproduction lifecycle, as an ephemeral stage. Gametophytes are the Source of Life for the survival of the species. In the ocean, gametophytes are unstable and not available in large quantities. In photobiorectors, gametophytes are stable thanks to specific conditions.
This Eco cert ingredient is the game changer and main active ingredient in our all day facial balm which makes it unique and highly functional.
Hemisqualane: Hemisqualane is the preferred sustainable and naturally derived alternative to cyclomethicone by top global brands. As a sustainable ingredient in virtually unlimited supply, it forms the strategic backbone for our all day facial balm.
