OUR FAVOURITE 3 ANTI-AGEING PRODUCTS
Summer is fast approaching, with longer days and gorgeous weather, it’s easy to overdo it in the sun, too many drinks by the beach or the one day you forget to put SPF. We need to protect our skin to look our best even on the longest of days. So, how do we keep skin looking tight? Combat the degradation of elastin!
What does this mean? Elastin is one of the most abundant proteins in our body. It provides the stretchiness in your skin, like a rubber band it can extend and recoil and forms a major component of tissues that require flexibility – namely, skin! It is a main fibril protein alongside collagen that is produced by the fibroblasts in the dermal layer.
The fibres are oriented to create a net-like structure across the skin to make sure skin can be pliable, supple, and elastic when being pulled and stretched in any which direction. Meaning even if you laugh too hard, cry at a sad movie or be straining your face too hard singing along to your favourite artists at the neighbour’s karaoke night, elastin is what keeps your skin bouncing back.
Here you’ll find our top 3 picks for taught, smooth and tight skin that springs back, just as much as you will need to over summertime.
With low molecular weight hyaluronic acid and a complex of essential matrikines to signal the fibroblasts to produce more elastin, the structure of the skin becomes stronger and smoother.
Using a targeted cyclical/ring peptide called Cyclopeptide-5, its designed to stimulate cell regeneration and protect the elastin fibres from degrading, all the while relaxing the facial muscles.
