Because you don’t want to have the very thin skin that “old” old people have. Healthy skin protects our bodies from water loss, oxidants in the air and infection, and it feels better and more comfortable!
Figure. The Madonna dell’Impanatta by Raphael shows you the difference in appearance between young and old skin. Old skin will be unable to protect your body as well as young skin does.
There is stuff we cannot change and stuff we can change, so it is important that we learn what good skin care products can do for us. For that, please have a look at Skin Actives.
Using run-of-the-mill skin care, even if they are horribly expensive, will do little to improve your skin. In fact, you can find skin care products at fancy stores that will do more or less what the cold creams my mother used 70 years ago. A cold cream contains oil, water, an emulsifier, fragrance and preservatives and it will keep your skin hydrated. Most of the ingredients in fancy cream will have just label value: make you think that you are paying good money for a fancy products, but will be just as good as any cream you can get in the supermarket for $6. The rest of the money goes to marketing, jars and profit.
Conversely, at Skin Actives, the company I founded 15 years ago, we use all the scientific knowledge accumulated by society to bring skin care products that can improve not just the looks but also the health of your skin. Keeping your skin healthy and “working young” depends on keeping strong oxidants under control and giving the best chances to your skin stem cells.
What do you need? Everything that decreases with age. Extra nutrition, growth factors, antioxidant proteins and apocynin, which will help your diminishing skin stem cells to stay and do their job. You can get valuable active ingredients in products from Skin Actives.
ROS BioNet: will protect your skin from oxidative stress and make telomeres last longer.
Apocynin promotes the synthesis of a particular type of collagen, collagen 17, crucial for the anchoring of newly formed stem cells, and its end effect will be to accelerate healing, delay aging and promote skin health. When it comes to hair, stem cells that make collagen 17 will keep producing hair, rather than becoming just one more skin cell (and there goes your hair!). We can expect that apocynin, by promoting collagen 17, will prevent hair loss. And we know that it should decrease oxidative stress and slow hair greying. Apocynin does even more: it also decreases inflammation, an enemy of our skin and hair.
