SKIN CARE For Men
Men’s grooming products are the fastest growing segment of beauty industry.
Because, since age 15, your DNA damage from past sun and pollution exposure, has far outpaced your native DNA repair capacity, present and future intelligent skin care should always include the following non-negotiables:
- Sunscreen – daily
- Moisturizers with DNA repair enzymes
- ECM enhancers. The Extra Cellular Matrix is a three-dimensional network of collagen and elastin, proteins, enzymes and glycoproteins that give structure to your skin. The ECM is basically your skin’s scaffolding.
- Antioxidants to protect and help your native proteins that repair DNA damage.
We also believe in skin fitness. Just as a regular exercise regimen will ensure that your body performs as a well-oiled machine, so too will a regular skin treatment regimen keep your skin performing at its peak. Young skin is full of stem cells and plump fibroblasts (cells that make your collagen and elastin and therefore create and sustain your ECM). These are very responsive to stimulation. As the skin ages, these fibroblasts become less numerous, less plump and less productive, weakening the ECM and slowly promoting skin laxity. It has been shown that injectable fillers, as well as various skin treatments can reverse that slack behavior and restore a more youthful fibroblast activity.
There are two lessons to be drawn from all the recent research. The first one is that the earlier you start, the better your chances of prolonging the youthful phase of your skin. The second one is that it is never too late to improve the health and appearance of your skin.
Remember that, to achieve long lasting, healthy, good looking skin it is imperative that you protect, repair, nourish and stimulate your skin. Let us show you how to take charge of your own best skin practices.
