Why we age?

As we age, the essential architecture of the skin degenerates making us lose fibroblasts, collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (our water holding substance). Our skin then atrophies and this is due to the loss of structure and wrinkles may start to form.

 

The Five Elements of Healthy Skin

  • Elastin – gives the skin its elasticity
  • Fibroblast – continually produced and repair the skin’s structure
  • Hyaluronic Acid which is essential for retaining moisture in the skin which is essential to cell metabolism
  • Collagen which gives the skin strength
  • Enzymes that helps to build new materials or breakdown old materials in the skin

 

The Five Basic Steps To Address Skin Ageing

  • Clear elastosis and prepare skin to repair.
  • Increase new cell numbers and activity.
  • Increase Hyaluronic Acid levels to enhance skin hydration and prepare the environment for cells to metabolise.
  • Increase healthy collagen and elastin to build strength and elasticity of the skin to give structure and reduce wrinkles.
  • Manage skin enzymes to maintain healthy skin and keep wrinkles away.
