No matter what our age, we all want to look our best. Many of us are also thinking about ways to turn back the hands of Father Time.
The Skincare/Beauty Industry has a multitude of products all claiming to promote “younger looking skin.” From soothing to superficial, there is a huge spectrum of offerings. But how many of these products actually help the body to be healthier?
Recently the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health analyzed 2,983 chemicals used in personal care products. What they found was astonishing. Eight hundred and eighty-four of the chemicals were toxic; 314 caused biological mutations; 218 caused reproductive complications; 148 caused tumors and 376 caused skin and eye irritations. This is unacceptable in this day and age. Industry can do better.
In my previous article of January 21, I discussed a safe, non-toxic, breakthrough health technology which promotes accelerated cellular healing based upon the cutting edge science of Redox Biochemistry. In this article, I want to share some of the recently completed science studies in this new field and what this means for us in our never ending quest to look younger.
To truly look younger you need to be younger at the cellular level. Cells are the building blocks of all tissues, organ systems, in fact, the entire body. Here Redox Biochemistry, through the creation of tiny signaling molecules gives our bodies messages of what needs to be done to rejuvenate healthy cells and either repair or replace damaged cells.
Unfortunately, over time, due to stress and the barrage of environmental toxins in our lives, our immune function declines and normal skin cell function is diminished. We lose the balance of redox signaling molecules required for optimal health.
One company has developed a skin renewal product based on this technology. It has undergone independent testing by global leaders in dermatologic research. Dermatest Lab in Germany has done several studies on this product. Their initial studies on women using this product alone for 28 days showed an improvement in six key areas of skin health: decreased eye wrinkle depth and overall wrinkle depth of greater than 20%; increases in facial skin texture, skin smoothness, skin elasticity of greater than 20% and an increase in skin moisture of 11%.
A more recent clinical study on cellulite noted a 20% increase in skin elasticity and an improvement in the appearance of cellulite. Based upon these findings and its safety, the product was given Dermatest’s coveted 5-star clinically tested seal of excellence.
Stephens & Associates in Dallas, Texas performed studies on the topical gel applied to one forearm. It found skin cell renewal and turnover was increased by 16% in that arm as compared to the arm without the redox signaling gel. They also studied whether there was increased blood flow in the skin as an explanation of enhanced skin healing. Those results indicated a 49% immediate increase after first application which increased to 55% by day 4.
Combined, these studies indicate that the application of the redox signaling gel enhanced replacement of damaged skin cells with healthy cells and increased blood flow and oxygenation to the treated area.
This is a safe, revolutionary and foundational approach to how we think about and improve skin health. “And Now You Know The Rest Of The Story.”
