Skincare is a part of your Health
Different types of illness, bacteria and viruses can irritate or injure your skin, and in turn, your immune system. Here are a few key ingredients to look for in skincare that will help to strengthen, nourish and protect your health.
Your skin is the bodies first line of defense. The largest organ in your body is the skin which works to keep bacteria, viruses and other infectious agents are blocked, working to prevent infections on your skin and in your body. Nutrition, blood and water are kept inside to help maintain your health. Body parts that are more susceptible to injury, like the soles of your feet and palms of your hands, have a thicker epidermis for even better protection
"Skin has a lot of different functions. It is a stable but flexible outer covering that acts as barrier, protecting our body from harmful things in the outside world such as moisture, the cold and sun rays, as well as germs and toxic substances." -NCBI Informed Health
Madame Spillmann, the First Lady of Swiss Skincare, once said that our skin is a mirror to the health of your bodies - how you treat the inside is reflected on the outside. Different types of illness, bacteria and viruses can irritate or injure your skin, and in turn, your immune system. Here are a few key ingredients to look for in skincare that will help to strengthen, nourish and protect your health.
Amino Acids - Proline Amino Acids, the building blocks of your cellular structure, have been shown to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making them less visible and protecting against further collagen breakdown. Protecting against UVA and UVB damage, is also a required piece of skincare to aid in topical absorbtion but also for collage production and the formation of cell memebranes. One of the most crucial components for cell health, these are a key ingredient in the Renaissance Age Serum.
24 hour protection - Applying a product to realize that the effectiveness wears off minutes later is so frustrating. With the right formulation of synergystic ingredients a balanced anti-aging moisturizer can last up to 24 hours for continued protection and hydration. Extracts of Wild Yam, Lemon, Cucumber and Avocado combine with the potent power of amino acids and Swiss edelweiss in Renaissance ProAge.
Vitamin C - Swiss Edelweiss, an antioxidant twice as powerful as Vitamin C, has been shown to effectively strengthen the skin’s barrier against free radicals and environmental pollution, and reduce skin sensitivity. Organically grown, cultivated and cold-pressed to ensure the potentcy remains, Gerda Spillmann's pharmaceutical grade care Swiss edelweiss is a robust botanical ingredient to nourish the health of your skin.
Nourish to flourish- Take time to pamper yourself, starting with your skin. Applying quality skincare and nutrition to your skin is as important and brushing your teeth - and should also be done twice a day! Use deep penetrating and strong anti-aging at night so that your body can better absorb topically applied products as it regenerates throughout your sleep. Light moisturizers for skin protection are ideal during the daytime to help prevent free radicals, pollution and bacteria from finding refuge on your skin.
