The dermis layer acts as support pillars so when the foundation crumbles so does the house that sits on top. As we age, the foundational dermis layer loses its overall thickness, sturdiness and elasticity because our elastin and collagen matrix becomes weaker and weaker with time.
And that’s how it works.
When we say “aging in the skin” it’s a euphemism for “destruction of living cells” and it gets progressivley faster as we age. Starting around the age of 18, we lose about 1% of collagen and elastin every year, at around 30 we’re losing 1.5% of collagen and elastin every year and by the time we reach 40, we’re losing 2%. We lose about 10% of skin thickness every 10 years. By 50, that plump, bouncy skin we knew and loved in our teens is dryer, more brittle, showing visible grooves, lines and sagging.
UV rays easily penetrate the epidermis layer and destroy the collagen and elastin matrix. It’s like sugar dissolving in water.
When we sleep we heal. If we don’t get enough sleep, our bodies, including our skin cells cannot recover properly.
Our skin cells are alive and require nutrients to thrive. Many skin care products contain a useless petroleum base that covers our skin’s top layer and only makes us feel hydrated but does not deliver very essential micronutrients to the skin.
Moderate drinking is not a major issue as long we hydrate properly, so enjoy that glass of wine. As for heavy drinking...well at that point our skin is the least of our worries.
This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Smoking kills all living cells and skin cells are no exception.
Free radicals are unstable molecules produced by our body. They are actually good for us in small doses because they help our body fight viruses and bacteria. When our body has to deal with toxins like pollution or excessive stress, free radical run amok and attack living skin cells. The end result is skin cell destruction, inflamed skin and a weaker collagen and elastin matrix leading to premature aging. We neutralize free radicals by using antioxidants. This is why delivering antioxidants directly to skin cells is extremely important. Saranghae’s Complete 5 Step Anti-Aging formulation is clinically proven to increase antioxidant effect in skin cells by 100%. We don’t just coat the outer skin, we inject powerful antioxidants directly to your skin cells for maximum antioxidant effect.
Elastase is an enzyme produced by our body from long term exposure to ultra violet rays (sunlight). One of the key side effects of Elastase is that it destroys elastin which weakens our elastin and collagen matrix. The result is tissue inflammation, destruction of healthy connective tissue and weaker foundation. Saranghae’s Complete 5 Step Anti-Aging formula specifically targets the over production of the enzyme elastase. In short, we fundamentally inhibit the mechanism that lead to the visible signs of aging at the cellular level.
Mature skin looks less hydrated and dehydrated skin look more mature. It’s not just an optical illusion, it is the truth of human skin. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally produced polymer in our body that enables our skin cells to retain water. In fact, HA holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water and our bodies start to lose HA as early as the age of 18. This means that as we age, our cells retain less and less moisture which in turn decreases skin cell function and life span. Saranghae has developed a methodology to slow down this process by identifying and isolating the enzyme that causes the degradation of HA. Saranghae’s Complete 5 Step Routine is clinically proven to increase our skin cells’ ability to retain moisture by 100%. No other brand in the world has been able to match our clinical results.
