Photoaging Skin HeaderPhotoageing is premature ageing to the skin caused by repeated exposure to UV light primarily from the sun but also from artificial UV sources. ‘Photo’ is derived from the Greek word ‘phos’ which means ‘light’ - therefore, ageing of the skin caused by light.

Photoageing is different from chronological ageing as the damaging effects of UV rays from the sun (or UV tanning resources) alter the normal structures of the skin.

What is Collagen? – The word collagen comes from the ancient Greek word ‘kolla’ which translates to ‘glue’ and the function of collagen is to hold our body and our skin together like glue, providing firmness and strength. Collagen is a protein which is produced by the fibroblasts and is the most abundant protein in the body. In fact, 30% of the protein in our body is collagen and collagen makes up 70% of the protein in the body.

We need collagen in the body to form fibrils and as we age, our collagen production decreases, resulting in weaker connections and then wrinkled, slackened, aged skin occurs.

Advanced Nutrition Programmes approach to the skins need for collagen is to stimulate its natural production and protect it from degradation, rather than creating something with ‘collagen’ in it. Collagen is a very large molecule so its penetration in a product is just not possible via topical skincare and internal versions of ‘collagen’ would feed our body first. We want to focus on its synthesis via fibroblast cell stimulation instead.

Skin Collagen Plus packages together two products to help support collagen production for youthful, healthy looking skin:

  • Skin Collagen Support
  • Skin Vit C

As we get older, skin starts to lose elasticity and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. Skin Collagen Plus delivers a double impact of vitamins and nutrients to help plump and smooth the skin.

Skin Collagen Support includes vitamins A, C and D regarded as key nutrients for collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

Skin Vit C contains vitamin C, nature's prime collagen forming, and radiance boosting, skin nutrient. Vitamin C also helps to recycle other antioxidants (such as vitamin E) and helps support healthy blood vessels.  It is also formulated with bioflavonoids to help even skin tone.

Benefits:

  • Supports collagen production
  • Plumps and smoothes skin
  • Protects cells from oxidative stress
  • Supports skin health
  • Leaves skin radiant
  • Supports healthy blood vessels

*Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels.
Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin.

Vitamin A contributes to the maintenance of normal skin

What makes Skin Omegas+ special?

Skin Omegas+ contains EPA (an important omega 3 fatty acid) along with GLA (an important omega 6 fatty acid) made from Evening Primrose Oil.

Skin Omegas+ is made with premium, scientifically researched omega 3 from EPAX, a world leading supplier known for its purity, quality and innovation. They hold a Friend of the Sea certificate, so you can be sure the omega 3 is sourced using methods that conserve marine habitats and resources.

Skin Moisture Lock™ is a unique anti-ageing formula that combines hyaluronic acid with ceramides. Hyaluronic acid and ceramides work from the inside-out to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps plump the skin. The result is a more youthful complexion that is soft, smooth and supple.

Ceramides and Hyaluronic Acid HA make up our skins bi-layer structure which is our skins waterproof barrier and found in between our skin cells.

Whilst Skin Omegas+ work on the actual skin cell, retaining moisture, Moisture Lock works on moisture retention in between the cells. When the skin is topically dehydrated, HA and Ceramides escape the skin causing TEWL trans-epidermal water-loss as well as allowing external aggressors to get in and degrade our skins functions. Improved ceramides through Moisture Lock offer a better water-poof barrier of the topical skin and extra HA means plumper, more hydrated skin cells as HA has the ability to hold 1000x times its own weight in water giving us an anti-ageing specific supplement!

The pilot study has shown that Skin Moisture Lock™*:

  • Increased hydration by 64%
  • Improved wrinkle depth by 28%
  • Improved skin integrity by 20%
  • Improved skin smoothness by 20%

*Results based on a pilot study conducted on 12 participants aged between 30 – 61 (1 man and 11 women) over 12 weeks. Measurements were taken using Courage + Khazaka equipment and were taken at the beginning of the pilot study and at the end of the 12 weeks.
