What’s the relationship between Aging Skin and Longevity?
Longevity is a word that’s no stranger to us. We all know that longevity refers to living longer, healthier, and more fulfilling lives. But how does that apply to the skin, which is our largest organ?
Our skin cells also suffer from aging, just like the rest of us. Collagen, the most abundant protein present in our bodies, plays a vital role in the development and maintenance of healthy skin, bones, and muscles (among other things!). Collagen levels begin to drop after age 25 and from there on, it’s a constant gradual decline. Natural skin cell turnover— crucial in maintaining a supple and firm face, also starts to decline. Prolonged exposure to pollution, the sun, free radicals, day-to-day stress, and dear old Mother Nature, all contribute to aging skin. All of this, coupled with the fact that our protective skin layer (called the dermis) starts to thin with age, creates a perfect recipe for skin aging, stripping us of our fresh and glowy “I woke up like this” look. This happens because our thinning skin doesn’t snap back the same way anymore and slowly becomes inefficient at battling everyday stressors such as environmental pollution, sleep deprivation, and UVA/UVB rays.
Our skin requires many vitamins and nutrients (such as Vitamin A, C, E, and others) to stay in top shape. These nutrients tend to deplete over time and it’s important to keep replenishing them to prevent aging.
Some good news, however, is that is absolutely possible to restore skin health and youthfulness with high-quality skincare products. With regular use, you can expect to see a reversal in skin cell damage, increased collagen production, and restored youthfulness, and that too while your skin’s natural turnover process is being enhanced (making your skin look glowy!)
How Can You Combat Aging Skin?
Experts and scientists have come to the conclusion that skin aging can be reversed and halted by the use of these three key products, each with its own special properties such as toning, smoothing, plumping, and brightening.
- Tretinoin (Anti-Wrinkle)
- DMAE (Firming)
- NAD+ (Improved Texture/Smoothing)
If any of the above-mentioned products caught your eye, keep on reading to find out more about them and how they can help you on your skin longevity journey!
Our skin sustains many different types of damage (like sunburn, cigarette intake, and environmental pollution), but including these 3 products in your skincare regimen can help reverse the damage and give you fresh and glowing skin for many years to come!
What is Tretinoin?
Vitamin A levels have a direct impact on the emergence of aging on our skin. Vitamin A deficiency leads to increased skin aging. Tretinoin is a clinical-grade, topical Vitamin A derivative (Retinoid) that can be safely used on a regular basis for boosting collagen levels, improving overall skin texture and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
While there are some weaker forms of Tretinoin available over-the-counter, these retinols tend to be pricier and must convert themselves to their active forms before they can act on your skin. Prescription-strength versions of Tretinoin are much more potent and can easily be used by the body to facilitate instant skin cell turnover, while giving you a collagen boost as well. The cherry on top? Prescription-strength Tretinoin’s efficacy has been scientifically proven.
- A stronger and more potent version of Vitamin A that directly combats aging skin.
- A pure Retinoid, proven scientifically to facilitate instant skin cell turnover.
- Leads to a noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen levels.
- Safe for long-term usage!
What is DMAE?
DMAE stands for dimethylaminoethanol (deanol for short). DMAE is an organic compound and peptide with remarkable skin tightening and firming properties, and has also been clinically proven to boost dermal (skin) thickness, while providing better hydration than many OTC skin moisturizers. Consistent DMAE usage can bring about astonishing skin-firming effects.
Researchers have suggested that DMAE (an analog of the B vitamin choline and a precursor of acetylcholine) has recently been on the receiving end of a lot of attention as a new contender in the skincare realm, particularly due to its exciting anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, and skin firmness properties.
- Best-in-class cream for tired, aging, and saggy skin
- Tightens and firms neck and loose skin.
- Helps smoothen out crow’s feet and forehead lines
- Reduces the appearance of dark under-eye circles
- Enhances lip fullness and shape by making them plumper.
- Provides unparalleled hydration and even repairs the skin barrier that has been weakened by aging.
What is NAD+?
NAD+ stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. There is a strong link between NAD+ levels and skin aging. Over time, our skin needs larger amounts of NAD+ to deal with the damage caused by daily external (UV) and other age-related stressors. Nowadays, there are many OTC skincare products packed with Niacinamide (a precursor to NAD+), hoping that it will increase NAD+ levels in the body
However, none of these products contain actual, pharmaceutical-grade NAD+. Topical NAD+ has dramatic effects on skin aging reversal, and that too without any undesirable effects or harsh chemicals.
- One pump used twice daily goes a long way (the cream is infused with 10% pure NAD+)
- Significantly finishes the appearance of age spots, wrinkles, and fine lines.
- Helps boost skin firmness and elasticity.
- Alleviates sun sensitivity and protects the skin against future UV damage.
- Guards the skin against UV damage and daily stressors (e.g., dehydration, sleep deprivation, pollution)
Summing it Up
Aging is a normal thing but it doesn’t have to be inevitable. Incorporating these products into your daily skincare routine can provide dramatic benefits and will leave you feeling healthy and fresh. Coupled with a good daily routine of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing, these products can help you achieve your skin longevity goals. The best part is that they’re all backed by science. Also, everything is compounded and made to order by a certified pharmacy, absolutely cruelty-free, and 100% vegan!
