As we age, gravity takes an enormous toll on our skin, dragging it down and causing it to sag. As well as gravity there are other reasons for sagging skin including a decrease in collagen and elastin production, a fall in skin cell production and free radical damage from the environment. In a bid to turn back the clock surgery is always an option but before taking such a drastic step check out the technological advances in skincare that promise a safer way to get a lift.
Beta Carotene is a pro-vitamin A carotenoid and one of only two sources of vitamin A. It’s an essential for overall health, but it has also been shown to play a part in the integrity of the skin. In the body Beta Carotene converts into retinol, which are known to work actively, penetrating the skin and improving its tone and appearance. The ingredient has been used in topical skin preparations for some time, since it improves skin turnover, strengthens tissue and protects against the effects of sun-induced skin aging.
Elastin fibers are the structural proteins found in the body that allow organs to stretch and recoil, and so keep their shape. Over time as elastin becomes damaged and is replaced with a degraded form of elastin. These fibers within the skin don’t bounce back like they used to causing the wrinkles we see on the forehead and elsewhere. Elastin peptides are tiny fragments of protein molecules that occur naturally in the skin that allow for the natural production of elastin. They plumps the skin giving it an elasticity that lifts the skin, making it appear more youthful.
Dead Sea Premier’s SUPREME Elastin and Beta Carotene lifting mask contains elastin peptides, beta-carotene and stem-cells, a combination of ingredients that dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles – fast.
