The typical American lifestyle, which is very busy yet sedentary, has serious long-term health consequences. In addition to an obesity epidemic and an alarming rise in Type II diabetes, we are seeing increasing rates of degenerative conditions that we associate with natural aging—arthritis, osteoporosis, etc. We assume that natural aging also has a distinctive look—sagging, wrinkled and splotchy skin.
But much of what we know about aging is a myth. Many of the conditions we associate with age are preventable, including looking your age. Advances in skin care technology can help you preserve and rejuvenate your skin’s youthful tone and texture.
In celebration of Healthy Aging Month, we’d like to introduce you to Hale Cosmeceuticals’ line of anti-aging skin care products.
Properly hydrated skin is plump, full and naturally resilient. In other words, properly hydrated skin minimizes the appearance of fine lines and slows the development of deeper wrinkles. As we age, keeping the skin hydrated is more challenging because the amount of hyaluronic acid, a compound in the dermal matrix that locks in moisture, diminishes.
The solution? Replenish the skin’s store of hyaluronic acid! Our Dermist M3HA Hyaluronic Acid Serum delivers 100% pure hyaluronic acid in a mineral-rich formula that aids in wound healing and scar reduction. Dermist M3HA is an ideal post-peel treatment, and adding one to two drops to your twice daily moisturizer can significantly boost skin hydration potential!
Years of exposure to UV radiation and other environmental toxins mean years of assaults by free radicals. Reactive oxygen species breakdown components of the dermal matrix, most notably collagen and elastin, the fibers that give skin its firmness and elasticity. The result is sagging skin and noticeable lines and wrinkles. Worse yet, free radicals can cause mutations in skin cells, contributing to the development of skin cancer.
To repair sun damage and prevent further free radical damage, these molecular threats must be neutralized—and that’s what antioxidants do. We offer several antioxidant-loaded products to facilitate the repair of damaged skin:
Vitamin C antioxidant formulas only use L-Ascorbic Acid, the purest and most potent form of Vitamin C. Our Lifting Complex has over six times the oxygen radical absorbency capacity (ORAC) as other leading formulas.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, but sometimes you need the cure. The “cure” for sagging skin, lines and wrinkles involves preserving the integrity and promoting the production of collagen and elastin.
While antioxidants work to neutralize threats to collagen and elastin, peptide technology works through different chemical channels. Peptides inhibit enzymatic activity that breaks down collagen and elastin fibers, relax muscle contraction that exacerbates the appearance of lines and wrinkles and promote production of collage and elastin. The result is firmer, toned skin.
Our products that employ peptide technology are:
All peptide products are plant-derived and formulated to be non-comedogenic and non-irritating.
It’s never too early or too late to fight the signs of skin aging, but you need the right products to do it.
