ATMOSPHERIC SKIN AGEING SOLUTIONS

Saturday 10 March 2018

Even though sun is beneficial to both physical and mental health, excessive exposure without adequate protection can cause alterations such as:

 

-Sunburn
-Sun Spots
-Photo-ageing
-Skin Cancer
-Atmospheric Skin ageing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE SOLUTION STARTS HERE:

Sunscreens are the first line of defense for protecting skin from atmospheric aggressors, however, sunscreen filters may only protect skin from up to 55% of free radicals.*
Daytime topical antioxidants help neutralize free radicals caused by atmospheric aggressors.
Pair an antioxidant serum and sunscreen daily for a double defense against the visible signs of Atmospheric Skin Aging.

WHAT ARE UVA/UVB RAYS?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rays from the sun are the main contributor to atmospheric skin aging with UVA and UVB being the most damaging to skin. UVA rays account for up to 95% of solar radiation which reaches the earth. They play a key role in skin aging by inducing free radicals that can lead to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration.
UVB rays vary in intensity depending on season, geographic location, and time of day. They directly damage skin by causing sunburn and are a chief contributor in the development of skin cancer.
Applying a good sunscreen daily can provide high broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

WHAT IS INFRARED RADIATION A (IR-A)?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Infrared radiation is a portion of the solar spectrum, and accounts for 54% of the total solar energy to reach the earth. It is divided into IR-A, IR-B, and IR-C. IR-A stimulates the generation of free radicals and is a contributing factor in accelerating visible signs of skin aging. Antioxidants helps neutralize free radicals induced by infrared radiation A (IR-A), which may lead to visible signs of atmospheric skin aging.

WHAT IS OZONE (O3) POLLUTION?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ozone is a colorless gas found both in the earth’s upper atmosphere and at ground level. Depending on its location in the atmosphere, ozone can be categorized as “good” or “bad”. Ozone pollution only comes from ground level or “bad ozone” and is created when pollutants emitted by power plants, automobiles, cigarette smoke, and other sources react chemically with sunlight.
Ozone pollution oxidizes lipids and depletes skin’s natural antioxidant reservoir, triggering a progressive cascade of damage, which contributes to visible signs of aging including a decrease in vitamin E and an increase in dehydration, sebum production, and skin sensitivity*.
Ground-breaking science shows that daily use of topical antioxidants neutralizes free radicals on the upper layer of the skin to help prevent the impact of ozone damage to skin.

HOW CAN I IMPROVE EXISTING SIGNS OF ATMOSPHERIC SKIN AGING?

Daily application of a high-potency antioxidant and broad spectrum sunscreen provides consistent and critical protection against Atmospheric Skin Aging.
Incorporating a corrective solution into your daily skincare regimen helps target specific skin concerns accelerated by atmospheric aggressors, including fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin tone, and blemishes.
