4 Steps to Younger Looking Skin - Anti-Ageing 101

 

Caring for your skin isn’t new. Lots of things we consider part of a good skin care regimen have been in practice for centuries. Exfoliation and bath rituals (aka Cleopatra’s bath milk) were very much a part of the ancient Egyptians culture.  

Nowadays, things are a lot more complicated when it comes to choosing the right skin care. The marketing efforts of big cosmetics companies create lots of confusing, and sometimes conflicting, information about which products will achieve the results you are after.  

The most noticeable advertising trend in recent years has been to make skin care products seem like a cross between medicine and cosmetics. Like heavily researched, ‘breakthrough products’ that will give you incredible results.

The problem is that most promises don’t hold up. Many so-called ‘scientific’ terms are made up words that sound complicated but mean very little. They create an impression that the company is smarter than you and they’re hoping that you don’t know any better!

Often, ingredients are added, but don’t work in the way the advertisements make you believe. A technique called ‘angel dusting’ is commonly used which means that the product will contain a certain ingredient but the concentration is so minute that it most likely has no effect.  

If you want quality skin care, that is results driven then you need to look at every ingredient on the label not just the actives. Ingredients can be divided into active and passive ingredients.

Active ingredients are those that influence your skin like sun screens, antioxidants, exfoliants or skin lightening agents. There are many active ingredients that are well researched and will change your skin on a cellular level, such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Niacinamide (Vitamin B6), native Australian extracts and peptides for example. 

Inactive ingredients are additives like fragrances, water, binders and fillers. Most moisturisers are often completely inactive. They will hydrate and hold moisture in the skin but they won’t necessarily change your skin in the same way as an active ingredient will. 

If you are looking for results then look no further. Our Age Defiance Collection.  When used in conjunction with the dermal roller, it will rejuvenate and feed your skin with beneficial actives to fight the visible signs of ageing.

Key ACTIVES 

Antarcticine - Pseudoalteromonas ferment extract 

Derived from a type of bacteria found at the bottom of a glacier in Antarctica. It increases collagen production that leads to a healthier and younger-looking skin, with reduced wrinkles and lines. It also assists with increasing elastin formation, hydration and moisture in the skin and improves skin healing. Found in: Age Defiance Day Serum.

Leuphasyl - Pentapeptide-18

A peptide that reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face especially in the forehead and around the eyes creating a softening of the lines or wrinkles. Found in: Age Defiance Day Serum.    

HYADISINE HA - PSEUDOALTEROMONAS EXOPOLYSACCHARIDES

A marine bacterial strain that is rich in glucuronic acid like hyaluronic acid HA but has even more potent water retaining capacity to moisturise and plump the skin, imparting instant improvement to the appearance of wrinkles in the same way as HA. Found in: Age Defiance Day and Age Defiance Eye Serums.   

Argireline - Acetyl hexapeptide-3

A peptide that both reduces the degree of existing facial wrinkles and has been demonstrated to be effective against their development. It has been shown to inhibit the formation of the SNARE complex by mimicking one of the proteins to destabilise wrinkle formation. No SNARE equals no wrinkles.
Found in: Age Defiance Day and Age Defiance Eye Serums.      

Chromabright - dimethylmethoxy chromanyl palmitate

A skin lightening and brightening actives. It acts by inhibiting tyrosinase activity the precursor to melanin production. It also has a photo protective effect helping to prevent skin damage caused by UV radiation. Found in: Age Defiance Night Serum.

EYESERYL - Acetyl tetrapeptide-5

A peptide that has anti edema properties to help reduce puffy eye bags. It enhances skin elasticity, skin smoothness and shows a decongesting effect. Found in: Age Defiance Eye Serum.

CoQ10 plays an essential role in cellular function as an antioxidant. It protects the skin against free radicals and DNA damage induced by UV light preventing against future ageing. Found in: Age Defiance Day, Age Defiance Eye and Age Defiance Night Serums.

VITAMIN E - TOCOPHEROL 


Soothes dry, rough skin and helps to repair collagen. A lack of vitamin E can lead to blotchiness, loss of firmness of skin tone and give the impression of premature ageing. Found in: Age Defiance Day, Age Defiance Eye and Age Defiance Night Serums.  

VITAMIN C - Magnesium Ascorbyl Palmitate (MAP)

One of the most powerful and effective antioxidants that plays a vital role in the formation of collagen to assist with keeping the elasticity of the skin intact. It offers specific skin brightening actives and reduces the visible signs of ageing. Found in: Age Defiance Day, Age Defiance Eye and Age Defiance Night Serums.
